Helmsley's Dunnellen Hall Estate Reduced by $65 Million
October 05, 2009 - Connecticut
The home where the late hotelier Leona Helmsley died from cardiac arrest back in 2007 is now selling for more than 50% off the original asking price.
Dunnellen Hall - located in Greenwich, Connecticut, USA- started on the luxury market at $125 million and is now listed for a mere $60 million.
The traditional brick mansion is approximately 23,0000 square feet with seven upstairs bedroom suites, a glass-walled music room, a wood- paneled library with a 15th century fireplace mantel, formal dining room, family room with a bar and much more.
The back wing is home to the staff area which has six bedrooms. The indoor pool has four exposures and includes areas for sitting and changing.
There is also a 75-foot outdoor pool with a terrace and a cabana with a kitchen. There are also brick cottages with an additional six bedrooms total.
The Helmsleys bought Dunnellen Hall in 1983 for $9 million and later picked up another 14 acres bringing the total to 40 acres.
At the time, the combined purchase price was the second highest price ever paid for a single residential property.
