GREENWICH, Conn. -- Former Citigroup Chief Executive Sandy Weill is looking to sell his Greenwich estate, located on 6.3 acres on Round Hill Road, for $14 million, according to the real estate listing and the Wall Street Journal.
Weill sold his home in New York City in 2012 for a record-breaking $88 million, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Weill told the Journal that "he and his wife purchased the property when it came on the market around 1980, thinking it could become a family compound."
According to the listing with Sotheby's International Realty, the Greenwich home "radiates the noble character, elegance and grandeur of England’s prestigious country estates."
The home was designed by architect Ira Grandberg and built by Hobbs Construction Co.
"This regal, hand-cut stone manor blends Old World ambiance with the ultimate in 21st-century technology," the listing says. Accommodating both elegant entertaining and casual family living, the remarkable 16,400-square-foot interior incorporates impeccable quality, the finest materials, and extraordinary attention to detail. Hand-milled woodwork, moldings and doors highlight the majestic yet warm interior, with most main-floor rooms opening to balconies, porches, or the loggia. Broad oak-appointed corridors and octagonal galleries unite the brilliantly designed layout, with fireplaces enhancing the gracious living, dining and family rooms; handsome library; and sublime master suite."
The home boasts six bedrooms, nine full baths and three partial baths. It also has six fireplaces, a fitness room, a home theater, library, security system, spa/hot tub, steam room, wine cellar/grotto, guest suite, home office, chef's kitchen, generator, finished basement and an in-law apartment, as well as an attached heated garage, deck and gardens.
The property also has a guest house, in-ground pool, pool house, electronics gates and outdoor barbecue.

He completely took over Travelers Corp. in a $4 billion stock deal and officially began calling his corporation Travelers Group Inc.
