America’s Most Expensive Home Gets a $50 Million Price Cut
When it first came on the market in May of this year, Copper Beech Farm – a waterfront estate in Greenwich, Conn. – set records with its staggering $190 million price tag. Mere months later, the price has been dramatically slashed to $140 million – still not exactly pocket change, but a huge reduction nonetheless.

Built in 1898, the home is touted as one of Greenwich’s “Great Estates,” as designated by the Junior League of Greenwich. The property was named for the copper beech trees that dot its 50 acres, also adorned with a greenhouse, a grass tennis court and gorgeous gardens. Most notably, the estate offers 4,000 feet of frontage on the Long Island Sound, plus two offshore islands.
Inside, the home’s 13,000+ square feet of living space includes a library, a solarium and a wood-paneled dining room. As expected of a home of this era, the interior is embellished with rich oak paneling, coffered ceilings and elegant carved fireplaces.
According to Curbed, Copper Beech Farm is still the most expensive private mansion on the market in the U.S., but not the most expensive private property. That title now goes to the 1,750-acre Jackson Land and Cattle estate in Jackson, Wyo., which is listed for $175 million.
