Paul Simon Lists Sprawling Connecticut Estate for $13.9 Million

The ‘Graceland’ singer recorded his last four albums on the 32-acre property

Multi-Grammy-winning musician Paul Simon is listing the New Canaan, Connecticut, estate where he recorded his last four albums for $13.9 million.

The “Graceland” singer, who rose to fame as half of the folk-music duo Simon & Garfunkel, first purchased the property in 2002 for substantially more than its current asking price. He and his wife, singer-songwriter Edie Brickell, are unloading the 8,500-square-foot, whitewashed brick home as their three children are all adults and out of the house.

Built in the 1930s, the Colonial-style residence has six bedrooms, seven baths, and multiple libraries, plus a three-car garage. A spacious recording studio is situated in a separate two-bedroom cottage on the property.

Set on 32 sprawling acres, the gated compound is located on a quiet cul-de-sac near the Country Club of New Canaan. A brook, pond, and waterfall dot the rolling meadows, which also feature a formal walled garden and courtyard. “The first thing we thought when we moved from Manhattan was ‘Wow! We have our own park.’” said Simon in a statement. “It took half an hour to walk a loop of the property with the dogs.”

The property is listed with Anne Krieger and Leslie Razook of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
