Daily deals are all the rage these days, but who knew they also existed in the luxury homes market? We’re seeing big price cuts making headlines, like Le Reve, a $50,000,000 Georgia mansion that was price-chopped until it finally sold for $11,500,000, making it one of the most startling foreclosures in history.
Today we’re featuring a home in Greenwich Connecticut that recently saw $5,200,000 come sliding off its original list price of $18,000,000. While $12,800,000 isn’t bargain-bin pricing, it does make this stunning home a much better buy than it was at the $18,000,000 price point.
Worth the money? Let’s dig into the details: this home is a pre-war brick Georgian with marvelous wings created for renowned art collectors and overlooks a private lake. Glorious stone walls border the front of this property, and handsome wooden gates open to the driveway, which sweeps into the courtyard and a circle. Magnificent landscaping, open lawns and majestic trees give the feel of back country with a skating, canoeing and fishing lake and true privacy bordered by Land Trust, yet with the unique asset of walking to schools and town. A portico shelters the classic doorway opening into the generous center hall with a curving stairway, banded parquet floors with a lovely patina and a Palladian window. The step-down living room has a fireplace and a columned bow window to the spectacular lake view.

Martha's Vineyard Estate, a13,327 sqft, 13 bedroom, 12.5 bath, five building compound
So who’s looking to vacation like the president of the US of A? Better yet, who wants to call that place home?
Presidents tend to select the most exclusive and relaxing locations for a much needed R & R. Just earlier this year, the Clintons chose a private beach estate in the East Hamptons for their week-long getaway.
For the past three years, our now-president Barack Obama has chosen a more laid-back, country ambiance for his family vacations and has headed to Massachusetts to unwind at Blue Heron Farm, a 13,327 sqft, 13 bedroom, 12.5 bath Martha’s Vinyard estate.
The 28.5-acre, incredibly exclusive waterfront compound sits in Chilmark on Tisbury Great Pond and is made up of five main building structures including not one, but two full-size homes – 5,118 sq ft and 3,718 sq ft. This estate is truly a horse lover’s dream come true! Its beautifully renovated facilities include an eight-stall horse barn that was physically relocated from Pennsylvania and completely rebuilt on the property, an Olympic dressage arena, and six grass paddocks.
Relax poolside in the property’s water view pool with hot tub or enjoy various recreational activities such a par 3 golf course, tennis court, half basketball court, horseshoes, lawn bowling or water sports on Tisbury Great Pond which opens to the great Atlantic. This home appeals to both the active and more relaxed resident, offering the best of both worlds for whatever your mood may be!
So, these are some pretty big vacay shoes to fill, wouldn’t you say? Now that the Obama’s fave spot will no longer be available, where do you think they should vacation next?
