After spending two years on the market, the Connecticut cottage
of music executive Tommy Mottola has at last sold for $14.875 million. That’s nearly $6 million below the original asking price of $20 million, which steadily decreased over the years since the home first became available in April of 2017
. The former Sony Music CEO and his wife, Mexican pop star Thalia, bought the home in 2010 for just $2.85 million.The home, a 12,300-square-foot Georgian, sits on 5.3 acres in Greenwich. Mottola spent three years transforming the mansion form an overgrown, abandoned void to what it is today; a columned portico-fronted traditional home styled to match the neighborhood but with contemporary interiors reflecting the couple’s taste. A clean, white chef’s kitchen centered around an gargantuan granite island looks out on a family room sheltered by rustic wood beams and warmed by a soaring stone fireplace, but the true luxury lies in the private spaces.Mottola and Thalia both enjoyed two-story private dressing rooms and a beauty salon-massage room hybrid. The home has outdoor spaces abound; an outdoor kitchen and pool overlook a lake, which itself is home to a private island. A charming footbridge grants access.
