The Rustic Estate of the Late Edgar M. Bronfman Sr. Lists for $7.995 Million
Topping our list of riverfront homes is a spread owned by the late Edgar Bronfman, Sr., the billionaire CEO of Seagrams. He bought the spread just six years ago with his wife, Jan Aronson, who told the Wall Street Journal she still spends most weekends there. After her husband’s death, their Fifth Avenue penthouse set records when it sold for $70 million. Designed by architect Michael Greenberg & Associates, the heart of the 9,000-square-foot Westport home is a circa-1832 chestnut-wood barn, evident in the great room with its 20-foot-ceilings, exposed beams, balconies and ladders, and massive stone fireplace. The 13-acre compound, one of the largest properties on the Westport market, also features a tennis court, barn and orchard. As for water features, take your pick: There are 750 feet of waterfront along the Aspetuck River and an expansive pool with a stone deck, spa and pool house. Todd Gibbons, of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, lists the property for $7,995,000.
