Mary Tyler Moore’s Beautiful Longtime Greenwich Residence Seeks $21.9M
Driving through the country roads of affluent Greenwich, there’s no telling how many grand estates have been home to or hosted famous figures. The real estate market, however, provides a window into the worlds behind these stately gates. For instance, the enchanting personal residence of Mary Tyler Moore just listed at 50 Dingletown Road. You can now get a peek into how the beloved late actress and her husband lived at their 7.37-acre estate, now available for $21.9 million.
The pair purchased the sprawling property in 2006 and lived there together until Moore’s passing in 2017. Now, six years since, the star’s husband has decided to part ways with it.
It’s easy to see why they cherished it for so many years. The long, gated drive hugs Oakley Pond, creating a serene experience as you approach the stone Georgian Colonial. Dating back to 1900, the mansion is a vision of traditional grandeur with a focus on rich woodwork, exquisite light fixtures, and classic perks like a billiards room. There are warm yet imposing spaces around every corner of the five-bedroom, 13,825-square-foot manor, which was expanded and renovated by architect Stephen Wang.
One of the most impressive design feats is the double-height glass conservatory. A dreamy haven for plants and people, the domed space is drenched in sunlight and blissful natural views. Other highlights include the primary suite spanning an impressive 2,000 square feet, thick woods, and a 65-foot pool. It’s no secret the late Hollywood actress loved animals, and there was plenty of room for any pets to roam here. Of course, she also had specific properties for these interests, including at one time an upstate New York equestrian estate.
Joseph Barbieri of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing. And, though it’s pricey, the current price would hardly touch the largest sale for Greenwich (and Connecticut) this year. Copper Beech Farm set the bar high in August, closing for $139 million.
