The Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel shucked another East Coast property this summer. Last year, the television personality and businesswoman sold her Hamptons estate—titled ‘Morning Glory House’—in the late winter, getting $2.3 million; Frankel had floated the place as a summer rental at $150K per month before putting it on the market.
More recently, the bona fide housefrau bade adieu to her property in prototypical bedroom community Greenwich, Connecticut. Frankel listed the charmingly traditional little estate in the spring of this year, hoping to close at $3.4 million. She got her presumed wish, as the property went to its new owner this summer in exchange for that sum.
The five-bedroom home boasts a bevy of period details that add up to a staunchly American post-WWII luxury living style, although renovations have brought a few surprises into the picture. The tile in the foyer is representative, a more daring take on gray-and-white tile. Gray tones have been added, giving a neutral moodiness to the interiors, with splashes of color popping up occasionally—the soft oranges at work in the dining room make for a welcome dash of whimsy.
The grounds measure in at 2.15 acres; the property feels like a proper Greenwich estate, with space to spare, and groomed lawns and suggestions of forest for a sense of seclusion.
