If one is willing to splurge to premier real estate in America, then here is one new opportunity. In what is rightly the most expensive family home in America, the Copper Beech Farm is on the market with a $190 million price tag. More than the 50-acres of greenery and natural surroundings of the estate, the 13,519 sq ft French Renaissance mansion manages to be a centre of attraction in the property being spread over 2 islands, and enjoying some of the best views in the Long Island region. For those looking for privacy this estate will be satiating every possible desire of exclusivity one can fathom, and if one is a nature’s bird, the surroundings promise some of the best possible exposures possible. However, with the premium price tag of $190 million, one might think as to what the selling price would finally turn to be. Though the real estate market is looking as attractive as ever, several luxurious properties are getting clipped at prices below their listed tags.
