There were rumors back in August that Leona Helmsley's massive Dunnellen Hall in Greenwich was close to a massively PriceChopped sale. The place has now officially sold, and the Times and Journal have the deets. The estate that was once asking $125 million sold, after several price cuts, for a much humbler $35 million. That's still among the priciest Greenwich sales ever, but not such a surprising number for a home that includes a koi pond, carriage house, and $1 million marble dance floor that was used as evidence in the tax evasion case against the Helmsleys. The walk-in vault also befits the Queen of Mean, so we hope the new owners will use it in the same proud tradition.
