Ron Howard has put his $27.5 million estate up for sale near Greenwich, Connecticut. The lakefront estate is made up of 32 acres of land straddling the Connecticut and New York border.
In addition to a working farm, the property includes a more than 17,200-square-foot main residence, a guesthouse, an indoor sports complex, an observatory, riding trails and woods.
Howard and his wife, Cheryl, raised their family in the classic New England-style home. Among the rooms are a two-story office/library, a 14-seat theater, six bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The guesthouse has two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.
There’s an indoor saltwater swimming pool, a gym and a yoga studio. The sports complex houses an indoor sports court and a basketball half-court.
Howard, 60, won Academy Award best director and picture honors for “A Beautiful Mind” (2001). In addition to scores of producing and directing credits, he is also known for memorable roles in “The Andy Griffith Show” in the 1960s and “Happy Days” in the ’70s and in the film “American Graffiti” (1973).
The Howards are selling now that their children have grown up.
