soros 1

Ahhh, New England.

Just to say those words evokes images of stone-covered beaches, lobster and ivy-covered homes. In New Canaan, CT, one of those beautiful ivy-covered homes just happens to be for sale.

The former home of Paul Soros, founder of Soros Associates and the older brother of financial investor George Soros, sits elegantly on 10 acres of quiet, landscaped loveliness.

Presented by Eileen Swanberg and built in 1938, the 4,800-square-foot home is being offered at $3.9 million.

And while the home is many decades old, the price point is brand new: The house was originally listed for $4.1 million. Beautifully clad in flagstone and traditional New England-style clapboard, the home has four bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms—and a world of timeless elegance at the new discounted price.

The grounds are a verdant escape from the hustle and bustle of life. Covered with fabulous gardens ablaze with color in the summer, the property’s charming stone walls, open fields and grand trees provide a place where you can truly forget your cares.

In addition, there is a sparkling in-ground swimming pool, a handy sprinkler system and a two-car garage with its own bathroom. Inside, the stately home is filled with beautiful custom millwork, plenty of built-ins, hardwood floors that have aged to a lovely patina and four wood-burning fireplaces.

Grace, elegance, and charm: This is a home that has them all.

Paul Soros was an innovator in the shipping industry, and with his wife, he founded the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship to provide scholarships for immigrants so they can earn graduate degrees. Soros, born in Hungary between the world wars, passed away in 2013 at the age of 87.
