The Connecticut home where Stewart started her first catering business is for sale
Martha Stewart’s four-acre Westport, Conn., home is on the market for $9 million.
Turkey Hill, as the estate is called, contains three bedrooms, a “party barn,” a heated pool and an orchard, all carefully renovated and manicured, the Wall Street Journal reports. The farmhouse was built in 1805, and Stewart and her then-husband, publisher Andy Stewart, bought it in 1971.
Susan Warburg of William Raveis Real Estate tells the Journal that the kitchen remains just as it did 25 years ago, when Stewart started her first catering business there.
Stewart, 64, sold her 2.5-acre East Hampton estate for nearly $9 million recently and her Greenwich Village apartment for $6.65 million last year. She intends to make her 153-acre Katonah, N.Y., home – where she served five and a half months under house arrest after leaving prison in 2004 – her main residence.
She still owns 62 acres in Seal Harbor, Maine; a home in East Hampton and a one-bedroom apartment on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue.
