The 123 Saddle Rock Road luxury residence in the Shippan Point neighborhood of Stamford sold for $ 7.5 million, the second-highest residential real estate transaction in the city’s history.
The home is 5,175 square feet with seven bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. The 1.67 hectare property includes a salt water pool with a pool house as well as a lighted tennis court, a guest house and a boat jetty with a water surface of 300 meters.
The house was built in 1914 and has only changed hands four times in its history. The newly announced transaction culminates in more than three years of efforts to sell the property – it was originally listed for $ 11.9 million in April 2018, then taken off the market in January 2020 when it was priced at $ 9.8 million. And then returned for sale in May 2020 at $ 8.9 million. It was discounted to $ 7.9 million in July.
While the property failed to break the 2003 Stamford residential sales record for a $ 8.2 million transaction, two other properties in the city are poised to beat that high: A residence on Rock Rimmon Road 1021 is listed for $ 10 million and a 107-acre site at Erskine Road 579 is listed for $ 20 million.
