For all those looking for a really special and luxurious property, we’ve found one. But be forewarned — it comes with a hefty price tag, touted as the most expensive private home on the market, and there is some debt.
It’s the Copper Beech Farm on 50-plus acres in Greenwich featuring panoramic views of the Long Island Sound and two off-shore islands, along with a gatehouse, grass tennis court, octagonal pool house and two greenhouses. The main house, built in 1898 and purchased by timber industry magnate John Rudey and his wife Laurie Rudey in 1982, has 12 bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 10 fireplaces, according to Christie’s International Real Estate which is marketing the property along with listing agent David Ogilvy & Associates.
The address is Greenwich and it could be a new home for ex-Yankee center fielder and jazz musician of late Bernie Williams, who has listed his home in Armonk and is rumored to be looking in elite Connecticut towns.
Williams’ current home is a mere $3.5 million set on roughly 3 acres (with an additional lot available). It has six bedrooms and a music studio and media room so this estate could be the right move-up choice.
Copper Beech is on the market for $190 million. But bustedcoverage.com noted Williams made $103,100,001 during his Major League Baseball career, so why not?
