Those who were looking to drop a few million on a luxury estate in Connecticut’s Fairfield County have missed their opportunity; at least for now. This luxurious historic property was listed for $5.75 million, and it was swooped up in May just before it went to auction by an anonymous couple. The Georgian Estate was built in 1912; sitting on seven acres the home offers surprisingly amazing views of Manhattan, Long Island, and Catskill Mountains.
The property includes 10 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. The main house stretches over 12,000 square feet with a 1,500 square foot guest home. The estate includes amenities such as a tennis court, a 65 foot heated pool, a 4,000 foot limestone pool terraces, nine fireplaces and a 50 foot ballroom fit for any bash.
The estate has historic precedence, as the original owner was an U.S. Ambassador, in 1946 the property was anointed as a home to the United Nations. The estate has been listed on the National register of Historic Places since 1984. The anonymous buyers have secured a historic property fit for national officials and ambassadors alike.
