“The master suite has one of three fireplaces and windows that take in the grounds. In all, there are seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.”
“A resort-style swimming pool, stream-fed koi pond, north-to-south tennis court and modern statuary fill out the backyard. A motor court sits off the entrance and has space for more than 30 vehicles.”
The seller of the property “was the estate of Alfred E. Mann, the billionaire inventor and physicist who died last year at 90.”
