NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- A New Canaan man is the owner/manager of the company that bought the 50-acre Copper Beech estate on the Greenwich waterfront for $120 million, according to the New Canaanite. 

The 12-bedroom, seven-bathroom Neo-French Renaissance Victorian mansion set a record when it went on the market in May 2013 for $190 million as the most expensive home for sale in American history.

New Canaan's Jon Whitcomb is listed as principal of the purchaser, Stamford-based Diserio Martin O’Connor & Castiglioni, based on Connecticut Secretary of the State records, according to the New Canaanite report.

The home was built in 1896 and was purchased by the Lauder Greenway family. Harriet Lauder Greenway’s father helped Andrew Carnegie to start what would become U.S. Steel. 

The property includes a mile of shoreline and two islands. Other features include a 75-foot pool and spa, grass tennis court, poolhouse, carriage house and gatehouse cottage.
