Christopher Meloni Unloading Resort-like Estate in New Canaan for $4.7 Million
Christopher Meloni of the "Law and Order" fame has reportedly hauled his resort-like estate in New Canaan, Connecticut, to the open listing market asking for $4.7 million. Meloni and his wife had purchased the property just back in August 2012 for around $4.3 million.
Looks like Meloni and his wife didn't really like the place as the listing comes just eight months from the purchase. However, the couple has redecorated the interiors so they may find a buyer easily, reports Real Estalker.
According to the listing records, the estate has two separate units. The main house is a 8063 square feet mansion comprising of five bedrooms and five full and three half bathrooms. Built in 1987, the home now features modern architecture. The two-story residence has hardwood flooring, white tray ceilings and French doors and windows.
Living spaces include a formal living room, a dining room, a great room, a games room and an office/library. The kitchen is a modern gourmet place with a midrise island/central breakfast bar ad built in pantry as well. The master bedroom takes up a complete wing in the upstairs area. Three other bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms complete the floor.
Outside, the home has a large swimming pool, a spacious verandah and rolling stretches of greens. The second unit is a large two-floor barn that is huge enough to accommodate six cars. The upper floor can be used as a yoga retreat, a studio or a home office.

Apart from the Canaan home, Meloni has another posh property in Candlewood Springs, near Milford. Meloni listed his condo in the Imperial Building of Manhattan, New York, in March 2012, which is currently under contract for sale.
According to the Business Insider, Meloni tried some extravagant marketing tricks to snag a buyer. He was apparently offering a Porsche Panamera to the buyer if a contract was signed by June 1 2012.
"A brand new fully loaded 2013 Porsche Panamera Hybrid will be included with purchase price," the listing on Prudential Douglas Elliman read.
The home was featured in the March 2008 issue of the Architectural Digest.
