Incredible Westchester Homes

Ron Howard’s home and other unbelievable dwellings in which to live out your happy days.

After 20 years of ownership, Ron Howard and his wife, Cheryl, are putting the New England-style home (pictured above) they built on the border of Armonk and Greenwich, Connecticut, (after purchasing land there in 1991) up for sale. The Oscar-winning actor, producer, and director said in May that, since moving from LA to raise their family in the area, the now empty-nesters are ready to move on. With a price tag of $27.5 million, the out-of-a-movie mansion and 32-acre estate might be worth it, but, just in case you want to wait it out until another celeb-owned compound comes to market, we think it best to weigh your options. (National landmark Kykuit isn’t actually privately owned any longer, but we can fantasize, right?)
