This Is The Most Expensive House In America

Copper Beech Farm in Greenwich, Connecticut, is currently listed at a whopping $190 million. Gatsby much?

1. At $190 million, Copper Beech Farm, originally built in 1898, currently holds the title of most expensive home ever formally listed.

2. Despite its astronomical price tag, the house is certainly not the largest house in America.

 

3. With 12 bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and two partial bathrooms, the house’s interior comes to 13,519 square feet.

 

4. In comparison, Oprah Winfrey’s Montecito, Calif., mansion comes in at a whopping 23,000 square feet.

5. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average square footage for a single-family home in 2010 was 2,392 square feet.

6. So what makes this Connecticut mansion so expensive?

7. Perhaps it’s the 12-foot ceilings and carved fireplace?

 

8. Or maybe it’s the grass tennis court.

 

10. Greenhouse.

 

11. Sun room.

 

14. Or simply the perfect view.

15. But if I had to bet, I’m guessing it’s the 50 acres of prime waterfront property.

16. P.S. In case you’ve been wanting your own private island lately, this house comes with two.

17. Oh well, back to my 90-square-foot, New York City apartment.
