Ivan Lendl Lists 450-Acre Connecticut Estate for $19.75 Million
The retired tennis pro is selling his 25,000-square-foot manor, which comes with two pools, 10 bedrooms and endlessly charming grounds.bedrooms, 12 full baths and comes with an impressive list of outbuildings and amenities. We especially love the long tree-lined driveway, which takes you past picturesque pastures and meadows — all part of the sprawling 450-acre estate.
Starting on the outside, you'll find a pool, tennis court (of course), guest house, pond, carriage house, caretaker house, barn, pastures, kennel and manicured gardens reminiscent of French chateaux. Inside, you'll find another pool, racquetball court, elevator, well-stocked gym, kitchen with a walk-in freezer and a stately library — or, if you're a tennis champ, a trophy room.
According to Real Estalker, Lendl bought the property in the late 1980s for $4.2 million then built the house several years later. He tried to sell it back in 2008 for $25 million.
