Emmy Award-winning actress Glenn Close recently listed her longtime New York residence for $3.6 million. After spending 30 years at the Bedford Hills estate known as Beanfield, Close is looking to sell the property, which served as the backdrop of her daughter’s wedding ceremony just last year.

Located just an hour outside of Manhattan, the farmhouse sits on 10.8 acres of tree and meadow-filled space. A renovation by Reno, Shope and Wharton upgraded the two-story, five-bedroom, five-bath home at 136 Succabone Road —which was built in 1910—to its current 5,773 square feet, while simultaneously outfitting the residence with modern accessories that enhance its features.

“Earlier this year at the Oscars, Glenn Close lost the Best Actress award to Olivia Colman, who starred in ‘The Favourite.’ Shed no tears for Close! Prospective buyers will be vying for Close’s ‘favour’ after taking a look at her Westchester County, New York paradise,” Erik Gunter,‘s celebrity real estate expert, tells Apartment Therapy.

The home features a large porch, which leads to the entrance hall. The library features built-in shelves, one of the home’s five fireplaces and a pair of doors that connects it to the brightly colored, art-inspired dining room and butler’s pantry. The modern kitchen features multiple high-end appliances, including a Sub Zero refrigerator and a Viking Professional Range with two ovens. There’s also a spacious family room flooded with ample light, courtesy of a set of glazed doors and large windows. Each of the bedrooms has its own bathroom, but obviously the master has the most luxurious amenities, including  a pair of sinks, a whirlpool tub, a separate room with bidet and a steam shower.

The property also includes a two-story guest cottage, a barn-turned-garage with office space, a playhouse with sleeping loft, and a outdoor pool with separate spa.

Previously, Close was the owner of two other Succabone Road properties; she sold the 4-acre property for $1.65 million in 2005 and, the next year, offloaded the 4.3-acre property for $1.2 million, reports LoHud.  Additionally, Close spent her “Fatal Attraction” filming days living in this glamorous Chelsea townhouse, which was listed for $18.75 million back in 2017 but is temporarily off the market.
