NEW CANAAN, Conn. – The New Canaan estate of Huguette Clark, copper heiress and daughter of U.S. Sen. William Clark, has been turned back into one lot, reports New Canaan News.
The 52-acre property was split into 10 parcels in 2008, but the new owners of the estate wanted the lot to return to the original layout, according to the report.
The estate was a highlight of the book “Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune” by Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell Jr. The book is about Clark’s unusual life and her fortune.
Clark's father made some of his fortune in copper mining, and purchased the nine-bedroom, eight-bathroom Le Beau Château in 1951 as a getaway, but the home went largely unoccupied.
The Daily Voice previously reported the sale of the nine-bedroom, eight-bathroom manor for $14.3 million in April.
