CTNews.com reports that the Copper Beech mansion in Connecticut, which was once the most expensive home for sale in the U.S., has officially sold for $US120 million.
The home was first listed for $190 million back in May of 2013, but the 12-bedroom mansion failed to attract a buyer. The price was chopped to $US130 million in September, and after another $US10 million discount, the gorgeous Connecticut property is now in contract, though there’s no word yet on the buyer.
The 50-acre estate dates back to the 1890s, and was owned by timber magnate John Rudey. The property carried a reported $US120 million in debt, likely accounting for the sky-high initial sale price.
The 12-bedroom home has 15,000 square feet of living space, 7,000 square feet of basement and attic space, and an 1,800-foot-long driveway. There’s also a grass tennis court, innumerable gardens, apple orchard, greenhouses, 75-foot-long heated pool, and a carriage house.
The estate was listed with Christie’s International Real Estate and David Ogilvy & Associates.
The gigantic property also has 15,000 square feet of living space, as well as 7,000 square feet of basement and attic space. It's huge.
Or the owners could spend time in one of the estate's two greenhouses, collecting flowers and vegetables.
