JetBlue Founder’s Luxurious New Canaan Estate Asks $7.8M

When looking for a Fairfield County home that soars above the rest from its amenities to its size to its design, this smart home is a must-see. David Neeleman, founder of five airlines including JetBlue, has put his New Canaan residence on the market. Though it first wanted $8.3 million, it now has a shiny new price of $7.8 million.

Sited on 3.4 acres at the top of Rosebrook Road, the gracious manor offers plenty of views over its lawns and gardens, which feature a pool and terrace, with a hot tub and fireplace. But it’s within the 13,000-square-foot interiors you’ll want to get down to business—especially in the wood-paneled library, where you can position your desk with a view to the ornately carved bookcases or Old World fireplace.

And no worries if your house is full of noisy family members—they can have their fun on the lower level, which offers an indoor basketball court, a 24-seat theater and a family room, as well as a bedroom, kitchen and full bathroom. Shawn Gardner with Houlihan Lawrence has the listing.
