Greenwich, Connecticut, has been one of the most coveted real-estate destinations during the pandemic for wealthy New Yorkers in search of more space.
But one affluent New Yorker — fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger — is giving up his Greenwich property and moving to sunnier climes. Hilfiger just sold his 22-acre estate for $45 million, after putting it on the market in September for $47.5 million, Sotheby’s International Realty told Insider.
Hilfiger and his wife, Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger, bought the property in 2010 for $31.4 million, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The lavish estate includes a 13,344-square-foot main residence built in 1939, rose and water gardens, a swimming pool, tennis court, guest cottage, greenhouse, and detached four-bay garage. Janet Milligan of Sotheby’s International Realty held the listing.
