Some of my colleagues have been saying that the mega mansion is dead – au contraire mon frere! And it happens to be in back country on to top it off…what a place!
11 Langhorne sold today for $17,000,000 – granted not for the original dream of $25,000,000 – with a long colorful history of Antares’ involvement – marketing it in 2007 as an opportunity to finish the build out. Then, finished a few years later, it was offered for $27,000,000.
Per the listing broker in 2007:
GREENWICH’S 1ST ‘COUTURE-READY’ HOME IS READY FOR ITS FINISHING TOUCHES. 35,000 SF OF BORIS BARANOVICH EXQUISITELY DESIGNED LUXURY. EXTERIOR IS HAND CUT STONE INDIGENOUS TO THE PROPERTY.

The art of the deal transcends all businesses, and more so in real estate than in many other professions. For the client, it's often an emotional purchase or sale, rather than a simple commodity or luxury item. I make it my mission to have each side come to terms with a transaction that works for everyone. It's not always easy, but good things in life usually take effort - something from which I've never shied.
Licensed since 2009 as a real estate sales agent in CT & NY, I often work with clients on the border of both areas.
With sales and distribution experience for luxury designer products, and watching/reacting to the markets, my acumen for sales was established. Achieving success and contributing to the growth of many global apparel designer brands, such as Giorgio Armani and Paul Smith for over 20 years, it was time for a change. I wanted to explore another passion that would keep me in one location rather than traveling the globe.
Now I have the best of both worlds, a successful business as a fulfilling personal life. My husband and I have lived in back country Greenwich since 2003, where we enjoy easy access to great biking, hiking and golf. We love to ski and that's usually where our travel takes us.
Life is good in Greenwich!
