Music Exec. Tommy Mottola Lists His Greenwich Estate to the Tune of $20M

The front façade features a columned portico.Former chairman and CEO of Sony Music Entertainment Tommy Mottola is ready to part with a Greenwich property he bought in 2010 for less than $3M. The current ask: a whopping $19.95M.

While the price jump may seem extreme, Mr. Mottola told Mansion Global that the property was vacant and overgrown when he bought it and the lake view was completely obstructed by vegetation. He spent about 3 years designing a 12,300-square-foot Georgian-style mansion with an exterior that features a columned portico—styled to reflect the architectural vernacular of the area—and a contemporary interior. Notable details include a beauty salon/massage room, a rustic entertaining space that features wood beams and a stone fireplace and a sprawling chef’s kitchen. Mottola and his wife, Mexican pop star Thalia, each has their own 2-story dressing room. A terrace off the rear of the home features a full outdoor kitchen and fireplace and overlooks the lake, where a footbridge leads to a private island.

Mottola, his wife and their 2 children use this home as their primary residence, but are selling it because they plan on starting construction on new homes in Greenwich, Palm Beach and Aspen.
