$4M Mansion Built on the Ashes of Mark Twain's 'Stormfield'

New, 2 comments

In 1908, Samuel Clemens, the author better known as Mark Twain, built himself an Italianate dream house called Stormfield on this bucolic property in Redding, Conn. Two years later, he was dead and, in 1923, his elaborate final home burned to the ground. In its place, this similar mansion was built in 1925 and has survived since, surrounded by the stone walls, columns, and foundation of Stormfield. Currently listed for $4M, the 5,600-square-foot spread—with four bedrooms and six bathrooms—sits on 28 acres and is accessed by a stately drive guarded by Twain's original stone gates.
