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.
