Would you leave this to be closer to 92nd Street Y? A couple in New Zealand would…
STATS: A 6,458-square-foot home with four bedrooms and 2½ bathrooms on 99 acres, asking $6.5 million, or $65,656.56 an acre.
DETAILS: This property sits in the Marlborough region of New Zealand. The owners say it was just pasture land when they first saw it and decided to turn it into a vineyard. They planted 55 acres of grapes and now produce their own Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. They also put in 25 acres of olive trees and make their own olive oil. Along the way, they built what is now a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse where they lived while building the main house. Designed to look like a “Dutch barn,” the main house includes modern conveniences like an elevator, a sauna, a gym and a screening room.
SELLERS: Bruce and Joanne Curley Kerner. He was the executive in charge of production for shows like “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” and “Judge Judy”; she was a producer for “Grace Under Fire,” among others.
WHY WE’RE SELLING: Mr. Kerner says they are ready to move back to the U.S. and are thinking of New York, where he’d like to be close to the 92nd Street Y.
