Last May, a Connecticut mansion went on the market for $190 million and became the most expensive home for sale in the U.S.
Now, that price tag has been reduced to $130 million, meaning the property — Greenwich’s Copper Beech Farm — no longer holds that title
The 50-acre property dates back to the 1890s, and is currently owned by timber magnate John Rudey. It carries a reported $120 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.
