Ron Howard put his stunning Victorian home in Connecticut on the market. His Victorian home is a private country estate that sits on a whopping thirty-two acres.
He and his wife lived here for many years raising their family.
The Victorian home has an indoor tennis and basketball court, an observatory with a telescope, a 14-seat movie theater, a two-bedroom guest cottage, an indoor pool, barns, paddocks, a gym and yoga studio, greenhouses, formal gardens, and a lake in the community. Six bedrooms, five bathrooms, and four partial baths.
Most know Ron Howard has acted since childhood most famous as Opie in the beloved Andy Griffith Show. The next time he came on-screen again to my memory was as a teen or 20-something staring in the movie American Graffiti. He entered our hearts and homes again in the long-running Happy Days TV series. Nowadays he is a director and producer of many movies winning an Academy Award for Best Director for the movie Beautiful Mind.
He has net worth of $140 million.
The beautiful Victorian home has 23 rooms and around 17,200 square feet.
I like the home’s easy access with no stairs to climb to enter, the expansive driveway, and the host of Victorian details. The crescent-shaped window you see in the center is an eyebrow window and they remind me of Hobbit houses.
The details don’t say, but this must be the back of the home. I am imagining the observatory in the uppermost dome area, but no, that is a separate building all its own. Two more eyebrow windows and the right and left symmetry leave me speechless.
Just taking in the beautiful murals, especially all the ships.
I like leaded glass windows and custom-carved cabinetry. I’ll be quiet now and let you look.
I am crazy for vanity areas and love the queenly mirror, mirror on the wall. I spy a phone on the wall by the sink for important calls.
The 14-seat theater room.
One of my favorites is their sunny indoor pool.
The indoor tennis court.
The family’s own star observatory reminds me that Ron Howard directed the Apollo 13 movie.
The four windows above the garage match the windows inside the tennis courtroom so I believe this is where the courts are located.
All tied up in a really nice Connecticut home that can be yours for the asking price of $27,500,000.
