A Greenwich, Conn., estate called Copper Beech Farm has sold for $120 million, making it the most expensive recorded home sale in the U.S.
Priced as high as $190 million, the 50.5-acre estate centers on an 1890s French Renaissance-style home of 13,519 square feet that sits on 4,000 feet of waterfront.
The price surpasses private-equity chief Tully Friedman's $117.5-million sale last year of a nearly 9,000-square-foot home in Woodside, Calif.
Named for copper beech trees on the site, the estate in Greenwich was sold by timber tycoon John Rudey.
Reached by way of a 1,800-foot-long driveway, the main house features a three-story paneled entry, a solarium, sleeping porches and an additional 7,000 square feet of attic and basement space.
A tennis court, a carriage house, two greenhouses, a swimming pool and a pool house are among amenities.
Listing agent David Ogilvy of David Ogilvy & Associates, an affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate, did not return a call for comment.
