Copper Beach Mansion in Greenwich, CT now is costliest home for sale in USA — $190 million
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.
What the listing does not say:
Whether the WINDOW AIR CONDITIONER unceremoniously bolted to the exterior of the grand entrance to this luxe property stays. Be sure to ask the listing agent, won't you Muffy? If not, dispatch Jeeves to pick up a replacement at Sears.
