How do you know your house is humongous? When it takes up space in two states. Actor Ron Howard just sold his colossal estate, which straddles the Connecticut and New York borders, making its new owner a resident of both Greenwich and Armonk. The home sold for an impressive $27.5 million.
Howard and wife Cheryl bought the estate in 1991 and spent years making it their dream space. The six-bedroom 17,000 square foot home includes a home theater for watching reruns of “The Andy Griffith Show,” and an immaculate swimming pool. In addition to the main quarters, there is a 2,500 square foot “guest” home, a sports barn with a tennis court, as well as an actual barn for actual horses.
In the biggest case of empty nest syndrome ever recorded, the Howards state that now that their four children are grown, they sold the family residence to look for something smaller.
The couple also notes that keeping the home seems unnecessary as they “travel a lot” since the kids are now out of the house. Rough life.
