Mary Tyler Moore’s Historic Estate on Sale For Mind-Blowing Price

Mary Tyler Moore, Dick Van Dyke on Larry King live vs CNN

Dick Van Dyke star Mary Tyler Moore’s estate was recently listed for a cool $21.9 million.

The 120+ year-old Georgian Colonial home is situated on over seven acres of land in Greenwich, as provided by listing agent Joseph Barbieri of Sotheby’s Realty.

The late actress and her husband purchased the property for $10 million roughly 17 years ago.

During their time in the home, the couple added on a generous amount of living space, as well as various other upgrades, bringing the livable square footage to a generous 13,825-square-foot.

Mary’s husband, Dr. Robert Levine, described the home’s conservatory as “her special place.”

“It was Mary’s serenity room, and where she spent a good part of her life when she was no longer able to get around as easily on her own,” he said.

Moore passed away around six years ago following a battle with pneumonia. She was 80 years old at the time of her passing.

Listing agent Barbieri described the home in its Sotheby’s International Realty listing:

“The gracious front to back entry with scenic landscape views opens to an inviting living room clad in Venetian plaster with a bay window and fireplace. Accentuated by built-in bookcases and a beamed ceiling, the billiards room/library creates an elegant gathering space with comfortable window seats and a marble fireplace. Beyond the entrance hall, the formal dining room with a bay window and fireplace is also clad in Venetian plaster and fine dentil molding. Comfortably scaled, the kitchen opens to the breakfast room/family room with fireplace. Sunny French doors in the family room open to the patio for indoor/outdoor dining. An adjoining office features a tray ceiling, marquetry floor and its own powder room. The showpiece of the house is a glass conservatory bathed in warm afternoon light and filled with lush plants. There is also a laundry room with dog shower and grooming station on this floor as well as a formal powder room.”

“In its own private wing, the 2,000+/- square foot owner’s suite features a tray-ceilinged bedroom with marble fireplace and two marble bathrooms with walk-in closets. The larger of the two marble bathrooms has a custom-made, stained glass ceiling rosette, a freestanding shower enclosure, bath tub and 100 linear feet of closet space. The second full bath offers a steam shower and adjoining wardrobe room. There are three more en-suite bedrooms and a laundry/gift-wrapping room on this floor.”

“Along with French doors from the walk-out gym, this level hosts a wonderful spa facility that incorporates a massage room, built-in jacuzzi pool, steam room, sauna and full bath.”

“Stone terraces with arcadian views of Oakley Pond overlook the expansive rear lawns with lush landscaping by renowned landscape architect Janice Parker. Tucked away from the main view lines of the house is a stunning 65-foot pool flanked by an outdoor fireplace.”

When asked about his decision to sell the home, Levine responded with, “It’s Mary’s house, if I’m going to step into my ‘what next?’, I decided I have to step away from the house.”

“It was so private and protected and yet so close to Greenwich Avenue. We couldn’t run away completely from Manhattan. [Mary] needed her fix, to be able to window shop.”
