Playwright Eugene O'Neill's Ridgefield estate is listed for $4.2 million.To round out our cultural tour, consider the circa-1905 Ridgefield estate Eugene O’Neill called home during the 1920s, said to be the inspiration for his opus play Desire Under the Elms. Called Brook Farm, today it’s a 16-acre, resort-like spread with a saltwater pool, a pond, running trails and a barn with second-story guest quarters. The 7,506-main house is an elegant ramble of white clapboard with one of the prettiest back-to-front entrance halls we’ve seen: It’s got its own hearth, sitting area and grand double staircase. In all, the home offers seven fireplaces, along with seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Laura Freed of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty has the $4.2 million listing.
