Listed at $190 million, Greenwich estate is priciest home in the US | On The Block | an SFGate.com blog

Listed at $190 million, Greenwich estate is priciest home in the US | On The Block | an SFGate.com blog

The property

Single-family home is rather a misnomer for this estate, as it consists of so much more than just the home itself- a 13,519 square foot French-renaissance mansion with 12 bedrooms, seven full baths, two half baths, library, solarium, wine cellar and entire floor for staff. Special features include 12-foot ceilings, multiple carved fireplaces and balconies, plus huge windows and glassed-in porches for taking in the panoramic Long Island Sound view. The property straddles 50 acres spread over two islands, and outdoor features include a 75 foot pool with spa and pool house, grass tennis court, stone carriage house and guest cottage, plus abundant rolling lawns and gardens.

The history

Since being built in 1896, Copper Beech Farm has only known two owners. Harriet Lauder Greenway (whose father, George Lauder, joined Andrew Carnegie to create U.S. Steel) purchased the property in 1904 and lived there for 75 years. Current owner John Rudey, who made his money in timber, acquired the home in an off market deal. According to Forbes, “The estate hasn’t been publicly listed for sale in more than a century.”

Big spenders are back

The high-high end luxury home market has enjoyed a comeback of late all over the country, with record sales in New York, San Francisco, Woodside, Montana, and Beverly Hills. But often even these uber-listings targeting the uber-rich must come down in price before selling. For example, the Spelling Mansion, once “haven” to Candy Spelling, wife of the deceased TV mogul, Aaron Spelling, tried to sell her Beverly Hills manse for $150 million. She ended up taking $85 million instead from Petra Ecclestone, the 22-year-old British heiress of Formula One Manangement.

If your tool skills are limited to a screwdriver and a bottle opener, you can still build your own house.

Teal Panels makes structures from molded polyethylene panels that fasten together using nothing more than a Phillips head screwdriver. The wall and corner panels can be configured into pod-like playhouses, fishing cabins, guest suites, and backyard offices.

You can build a 10-by-10-foot structure in about 90 minutes, says Teal Panels president Lawrence Drake. Pretty zippy if you’re into the tiny house movement.

Drake originally designed the panels to make lightweight camper shells for pickup trucks, but quickly realized the potential of the modular design.

“Everything has been designed to use the fewest number of parts and the simplest building techniques,” says Drake. “It’s easy, accessible construction.”

Highlights of a Teal Panels structure include:

Interlocking tabs help the 21-inch-wide, 20-lb. panels fit together, and waterproof gaskets between the panels seal out air and moisture.

Panels can be ordered with windows and polyurethane insulation. The panels nest together to reduce shipping bulk, and for compact storage.

Lightweight canvas roofing is available, but home owners may decide to build their own roofs from plywood or metal.

Flooring is not part of the package. You’ll have to provide your own using a wood deck or a concrete slab. You can put a Teals Panel structure right on the ground — it’s rot-proof — but you’d be wise to add a PVC vapor barrier over the ground or under a gravel bed to ward off dampness.

Cabinets, vanities, dinettes, and other accessories are available. Space-saving designs include wooden cabinets that fold up when not in use, and canvas “bag cabinets” that collapse to save space.

You’ll have to provide your own plumbing service and electrical service.

Other custom options include skylights, exhaust vents, and exterior colors.

Right now, Teal Panels is putting the finishing touches on their production facilities, and Drake estimates the panels will be available for purchase in late fall. Expect a basic wall panel to cost $175 to $200.

And when you’re done assembling your own mini-house, you can use your other tool — that bottle opener — to celebrate.
