Ivan Lendl is a model of hard work, courage and a true champion. He won 94 trophies including eight Grand Slam titles and the famous Davis Cup. During the 60 years of his professional career, he earned half a billion just from tennis. At the end of the 1980s, he shared a two-kilometer plot of land in Connecticut for less than a hundred million kroner.

When we decided to start a family, we wanted to move somewhere where it would be quiet and we would have enough space, Ivan Lendl recalled. By 1992, a luxury house had grown on the property for Lendl and his wife Samantha. We really had a great time there with our children, we have five daughters, so I have a lot of great memories of that place, said the tennis legend.

We were left alone

The luxurious mansion has 20 rooms, including ten bedrooms and 15 bathrooms. Inside the stone-floored living room there is a fireplace, a library, a kitchen, a bedroom for a chambermaid, a wine cellar and even a room for hunting trophies.

Outside there is a swimming pool, a tennis court, a horse run, a private fishing pond, a sauna and a gym with gymnasiums. Thus, a workshop above two garages that can accommodate eight vehicles. We planned to stay there, but we need a smaller house because we live alone. It’s just the two of us and the dogs. “Pt dt is gone, so let’s settle for something less and we will stay in this area for the rest of our lives,” said Lendl.

The most expensive property in the history of Litchfield County will be able to take over a new owner, according to CNN Prima News.
