America's Most Expensive Home for Sale

Copper Beech Farm in Greenwich, Connecticut (already known as a very expensive neighborhood) is for sale for $190 million dollars. But if you know how real estate works, you might be able to talk them down a million or so.

Copper Beech Farm spans 50 prized acres that boast roughly a mile of water frontage on the Long Island Sound, thanks in part to two offshore islands included in the offering. The main house, a French-renaissance mansion, boasts 13,519 square feet of living space including 12 bedrooms, seven full baths and two half baths, a wood-paneled library, an ornate dining room with a tracery ceiling and oak columns, a solarium, a wine cellar, a third-floor staff wing, and a three-story, wood-paneled entry foyer. The original kitchen, equipped with a dumb waiter, sits in the basement, originally part of the staff quarters. Fireplaces adorn most rooms in the Victorian manse and sleeping porches, once used during summer months before the advent of air conditioning, extend off of bedrooms.

Oh, there's also several other buildings on the property, two pools and a spa, an orchard, gardens, and a big forest. See more pictures at Forbes. Link -via Digg

Location and acreage; otherwise that is not nearly $190M worth of house.

You could get a fixer-upper on the north shore of Long Island for about $170M less; -but then you'd have to live on Long Island, proximity to Jay Gatsby's stomping-grounds be-damned.

If I had that kind of money.... why in the heck would I want to live there surrounded by neighbors and the sound of speed boats going by all day and night.

For that kind of money I could have a private island and any kind of house I want.... not some crappy old house where the kitchen is in the basement..... and I would make it a soverign nation.
