Singer Diana Ross places her mansion in Greenwich, CT back on the market for $39.5M

Singer Diana Ross has placed her 12,562-square-foot waterfront mansion in Greenwich, Conn. back on the market for its previous $39,500,000 listing price. Built in 1930, Ross’ French Normandy-style mansion, at 65 Meadow Wood Drive in Greenwich, has been much covered over the years by the celebrity real estate press. Back in 2004, Ross made headlines for protesting Greenwich’s appraisal of the value of the mansion, which is in Greenwich’s exclusive Belle Haven area. Then, in December 2006, our friends over at the Real Estalker wrote about Ross’ then-listing of the 11-bedroom mansion. Ross eventually took her stonewall-enclosed mansion over the market. Now, the New York Post’s Braden Keil last week (hey—as we noted earlier today, we’re still catching up on items that others have written about!) reported that Ross has re-listed the estate, which is known as Quarry Farm. Features in the mansion include 10 baths, a spiral staircase going from the basement to the third floor, a bowling alley, a family room, a wine cellar, 18th-century oak paneling (designed by the firm of Parsons and Wait) in the living room, a master bedroom with a double-sided fireplace and ogee arches opening into each room, according to listing information and Keil. Other features on the 9.02-acre estate include a free-form swimming pool, a spa and tennis court, a five-car garage, a guest cottage, and another garage with an apartment above, according to listing information. The mansion was designed by architect Frank Forster and is situated on Long Island Sound. Ross purchased the mansion in 1980 from actor Frank Gorshin. She currently owns it through her 65 Meadow Wood Drive LLC company. Property records show that she owns the property in two pieces – a 4.97-acre parcel and a 4.05-acre tract.
