At $45 million, 21 Vista Drive is an unusually expensive property, even for the town of Greenwich.
As the Connecticut Post points out, only five listings over the last 15 years in Greenwich have met or eclipsed $30 million. Greenwich’s second-highest listing, the Leona Helmsley estate, has been reduced from $49.9 million to $29 million over the last two years.
This home has been on-and-off the market since 2009, when it appeared for $50 million. What’s with the price?
According to the listing agent, it’s because of the property’s unique waterfront access.
“There are very few properties like this, something with six acres on the water on a peninsula like this,” Lurie told the Connecticut Post. “This is what we're selling. It's the land. It's the view.”
And of course, a 20,000 square-foot, 40-plus room house.
It’s quite the price to pay for a mansion on the waterfront. But it also might be the best place on the market to step into politics.
