This $175M Darien Home Aims to Break the Record for the Most Expensive Residential Property Sale
A private island compound in Darien aims to take the record for the highest residential property sale in the country. It’s listed with David Ogilvy of David Ogilvy & Associates Realtors and if it sells for its asking price of $175 million, it will dethrone the current leader, a $147 million Hamptons estate, reports the Wall Street Journal.
This over-the-top estate was built for baking powder tycoon William Ziegler, whose family still owns it and are listing it for the first time in more than a century. The 13,000-square-foot main house has unobstructed views of Long Island Sound, thanks to the fact that it sits on 63 secluded acres surrounded by an additional 14 acres of conservation land. Also on the property is a 30-stall horse stable with a Guastavino tile ceiling à la Grand Central Terminal, several beach cottages, a gatehouse, greenhouse and a yachtbasin with docks.
