Ron Howard, the Oscar-winning director, has put his family home and farm up for sale near Greenwich, Conn., for $27.5 million.
The lakefront estate is made up of 32 acres of land straddling the Connecticut and New York border. In addition to a working farm, the property includes a more than 17,200-square-foot main residence, a guesthouse, an indoor sports complex, an observatory, riding trails and woods.
Howard and his wife, Cheryl, raised their family in the classic New England-style home. Among the rooms are a two-story office/library, a 14-seat theater, six bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The guesthouse has two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.
Theres an indoor saltwater swimming pool, a gym and a yoga studio. The sports complex houses an indoor sports court and a basketball half-court

It might be worth 5 million.
Gee, I hope his security detail doesn’t have any guns...
Opie lived here
Hollywood is VASTLY overpaid.
“Homer. We’re out of Vodka...”
Looks nice to me, although I’m not sure what I’d do with a Yoga Parlor.
I’d take it, if someone would just set up a trust fund to cover the taxes and the heating bill.
Shouldn’t these hollywood commies be sharing their wealth rather than list if for other rich people to purchase? How many times do they whine about the homelessness, but themselves own estates that can house thousands of the bums?
turn it into a gun vault
About the only thing I like about his house is the fact that he used real wood for the walls in some of the rooms.
I hate how most mansions look, They are far too big and and too many rooms for my taste.
“Looks nice to me, although Im not sure what Id do with a Yoga Parlor.”
Think “Gun Room”.
I for one am happy for him that he was successful enough in life to be able to afford a nice home to raise his family.
Okay, NE FReepers, how many of you have a two-story office/library, a 14-seat theater, six bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, a guesthouse with two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, an indoor saltwater swimming pool, a gym, a yoga studio, and a sports complex that houses an indoor sports court and a basketball half-court?
I mean, it's "classic", right?
LOL, j/k. I have no issue with people who have big, even ridiculously big, homes. I do have a problem with them if they lecture of the rest of us on "greed" or "carbon footprint."
I thought he was pretty good in “American Graffiti”.
Sort of sad that he turned out to be an Obama supporter but then again so did Andy.
Typical Hollywood liberal DemocRat supporter of Obammie-the-Commie.
Socialism/Communism for THEE but CAPITALISM for ME!!!!
(What the left doesn’t like to admit is that everyone is a small-c capitalist when it comes to their own profits.)
Actually pretty nice, especially that stone outbuilding. Good taste, good design, quietly impressive instead of in-your-face opulence. Some Wall Street master of the universe will buy it and tart it all up, though.
I dunno, Apollo 13 was pretty darn good.
