Westport property built by TV power couple listed for $28M
A waterfront home in Westport once owned by TV stars Phil Donahue and Marlo Thomas has been listed for sale anew, with an initial asking price of $28 million.
The Copper Hill mansion at 120-122 Beachside Avenue totals nearly 11,000 square feet of space on more than six acres of land, with 400 feet of waterside frontage looking onto Long Island Sound. The Wall Street Journal reported the listing on Monday.
Copper Hill hits the market trailing only a trio of Greenwich properties — one once owned by President Donald Trump — and a Ridgefield equestrian estate for listed prices in Connecticut.
The Westport architect Roger Ferris + Partners designed the Nantucket-style residence built in 2007, with Donahue and Thomas selling it in 2013 for $20 million to Andrew Bentley, who two years ago bought a Harvey Weinstein home on Beachside Avenue.
Bentley is the former head of Glencore’s aluminum department, with Glencore among the world’s largest commodities trading houses.
Due to a reporting error, an initial version listed Andrew Bentley as the former CEO of Glencore. He led the firm’s aluminum department.
