If you’re hoping to be the buyer of Michael Douglas’ fictional Connecticut mansion from the 2014 film And so it isthe real-life property is now on the market for a wealthy fan to purchase.
The Rob Reiner-directed film follows Douglas’ character, Orrin Little, an upscale Fairfield County real estate agent trying to get off his most expensive listing yet — his own estate in Greenwich. Hoping to make one last big sale before he retires, viewers get to see plenty of accommodations as Oren hosts various shows.
Interestingly, the asking price of $8.6 million is the same price Oren was hoping to get. But sadly, Diane Keaton, who plays Leah Hartman, won’t be your neighbor. Joey Kim Metalious with Houlihan Lawrence has the list.
The ivy-covered Colonial Hotel, which dates back to 1930, was originally built by J. Alden and Quentin Twachtman, a fraternal 19th-century architectural duo and sons of American painter John Henry Twachtman. The brick house sits on nearly four acres and features a plethora of outdoor amenities such as a clay tennis court, a pool, and an adjacent pool house.
Today, the 7,691-square-foot space looks virtually unchanged from when it appeared on screen. You’ll find that everything from the stylishly wallpapered dining room to the light fixtures, hardwood floors and French doors are intact. Several years before filming, the five-bedroom, eight-bathroom home underwent a renovation that included updates to the galley kitchen, family room and guest suite.
Other highlights of the property include a wood-paneled library, a slate courtyard, and of course the master suite decorated with a cozy fireplace, two bathrooms and a large dressing room. And yes, Douglas rested his head here.
