For anyone who has cool $60 mil laying around you can become the proud owner of one of Fairfield County’s most expensive homes on the market today.

The other is located at 521 Round Hill Road in Greenwich (aka Dunellen Hall). This home has some interesting history. It is the former estate of Leona Helmsley, you remember her, right? The three owners previous to Leona all lost their fortunes for one reason or another so this house comes with a bit of a curse wouldn’t you say? The current owners bought the home in 2010 for $35 million. A steal considering the original asking was $125 million. Over the past three years the home was completely renovated and is now on the market ready for a fresh start.
English Manor, c.1916
Lot: Rolling meadow
8 full baths, 4 half baths
6 car garage
17,493 sq ft
On market since July 2014
Cool fact: The house was originally built in 1918 for $1,000,000

Can’t beat Fairfield waterfront and you’re getting a lot more for your money but did you see those taxes? They’re over double those on the Greenwich house. Greenwich is a knockout in move in condition but for anyone superstitious it could make life uneasy. So which would you rather own, Fairfield or Greenwich? Share your comments below!
