Our property of the week is Dunnellen Hall, the Greenwich, Connecticut home of the late Leona Helmsley, and it is listing for $125 million.
Christie’s Great Estates is handling the sale and it will be one of the most expensive homes ever offered in the Northeast.
When it was built in 1918, it cost one million and has more than 20,000 square feet, ten bedrooms, plus one of the very best views of Long Island Sound.
Apparently this is where you live if you own majority interest in the Empire State Building as Leona did before her death at 87 last August.
Who will be in the potentially small market pool?
Christies is currently reaching out to billionaires in the area who might like to move up. Since Greenwich has one of the highest populations of multi-millionaires perhaps a buyer will turn up soon.
Of course, we’re not sure if Leona’s $12 million dollar dog gets to sniff in on his approval.
