Ron Howard Sells New York Estate for Record Price

Academy-award winning director Ron Howard this week closed on the $27.5 million sale of his massive estate in New York's Westchester County.  The sale set a record for the county, and is one of the biggest residential real estate deals in New York state since the recession came to an end in 2009.  Howard purchased the 32-acre parcel of land in 1991, when his first child Bryce Dallas Howard was just 10 years old.  Howard and his wife, Cheryl, spent years building a dream home on the property, as well as a 2,500 square-foot guest house, stables and a tennis court.  The main house spans an impressive 17,000 square feet and has six bedrooms, a large swimming pool and an exquisitely-outfitted home theater.  In an interview,  Howard said that he sold the home because he and Cheryl travel almost year-round these days and each of his four children moved out years ago.  The sale closed Thursday, but attempts to identify the buyer have so far been unsuccessful.
