Amenity-Filled Connecticut Mansion on 1,086 Acres Lists for $13.5M

Villa Catarina Home

This Mediterranean-style Cornwall estate is ideal for an auto enthusiast since it has a spacious garage in which the current owner parks his collection of race cars. However, if acquiring autos is not your jam, there are loads of other amenities, including an outdoor swimming pool and an indoor squash court and gym.

Called Villa Catarina, the nearly 15,000-square-foot home opens onto a grand two-story entrance hall featuring a dramatic double staircase. There’s plenty of drama in the kitchen as well, with its oversized island, cathedral ceiling and easy flow into a dining room with a massive granite hearth. Along with plenty of room to roam across the property’s 1,086 acres, the exteriors offer a horse barn, an 18th-century, five-bedroom farmhouse and a clay tennis court. And if you don’t have a partner to play with, look no further than the house next door, which is owned by former tennis pro Ivan Lendl.

Villa Catarina is listed for $13.5 million with Ira Goldspiel of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
