Paul Simon's $13.9 million Connecticut mansion is for sale — take a look inside
Musician Paul Simon, of the popular duo Simon & Garfunkel, has listed his Connecticut mansion for $13.9 million. The property is just an hour from New York, but has all the trappings of a countryside home, including formal walled gardens and waterfalls.
"The first thing we thought when we moved from Manhattan was 'Wow! We have our own park'," Simon said in a statement. "It took half an hour to walk a loop of the property with the dogs."
The 8,525-square foot home has six bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, three partial bathrooms, five fireplaces and a three car garage.
The home sits on 31.79 acres in a private park and, according to its listing, overlooks a pond surrounded by meadows and long swaths of lawn.
The mansion's exteriors also features a terraced pool that surrounds the main house.
There's also a separate, 2,400 square foot guest cottage (with a garage) that is billed in the listing as being an "ideal guest house, musician's or writer's studio."
The $13.9 million listing price is 16 percent less than what Simon paid for the compound in 2002, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The house is located in New Canaan, Connecticut.
"Along a 30-mile stretch of coastline in Fairfield County, Connecticut, is a collection of blue-chip communities that are among the most affluent in America," the listing, by Sotheby's International Realty states. "This is the Gold Coast, on the Long Island Sound, where 24-karat pockets like Greenwich and Darien have some of the nation's highest per capita income levels."
