The six-acre estate on the Greenwich, Connecticut, waterfront that was owned by former president Donald Trump and his late ex-wife Ivana in the 1980s is back on the market for $29.9 million, the Wall Street Journal reports. The home’s present owners, investment banker Robert Steinberg and his wife Suzanne, bought it for $15 million in 1998. The Georgian mansion at 21 Vista Drive, with sweeping views of Long Island Sound, has been on and off the market since 2009 when the Steinbergs listed it for $50 million; it was relisted for $54 million in 2014. As 6sqft previously reported, it has seen several price cuts since then, but no takers.

Just 90 minutes from Manhattan, this dairy farm in Kent, Connecticut was built in 1900 and converted to a residence by its previous owners. In addition to retaining the beautiful silo (which now holds an office and home gym), they preserved the original hand-hewn posts and beams and cathedral ceilings with skylights and invested in antique furniture and art to highlight the history of the space. The kitchen and bathrooms were modernized, and a wonderful pool deck was added. The property sits on 14 acres along the Housatonic River, and the grounds include hiking trails. All of this is asking just $1 million.

We all love a good mid-century-modern time capsule, but this property in Woodbury, Connecticut has the added retro perk of being an original “deck house.” In the 1960s, the Deck House Co. built more than 20,000 prefabricated mid-century homes, mainly in the northeast. This specific deck house was built in 1966 and features the signature open floorplan, glass walls, and high ceilings. It sits on seven acres and has three bedrooms, two-and-half bathrooms, and 2,000 square feet of space. It’s on the market for just $829,000.

It’s hard to believe this home is just two hours from New York City, as its unusual location above a saltmarsh feels more like a moody northwest setting. Located on 1.7 acres in Branford Connecticut, the contemporary house was designed and built just this year by renowned architect Peter Kurt Woerner to take advantage of its site high on a granite promontory. Woerner titled the property “Osprey House & Studio” as a nod to the surrounding marsh wildlife sanctuary that’s home to osprey, geese, ducks, seagulls, hawks, and falcon. Comprised of a 4,800-square-foot main house and a 746-square-foot studio/guesthouse, it’s asking $2,800,000.
