Thomas Peterffy is a billionaire that made his fortune in the stock market — but not in the traditional way. Peterffy was instrumental in bringing electronic trading to reality in the late 20th century. Now he’s selling his 80-acre estate in one of the most exclusive gated communities in Connecticut for $65 million — $20 million more than he paid for it in 2004.
The Conyers Farm property has three guest cottages and a 22-slot horse stable (where Peterffy kept six horses), in addition to a 8,000-square-foot main residence. According to the listing, Peterffy’s well-manicured abode is the largest estate in Greenwich.
Peterffy is selling the house because he no longer uses it as his primary residence.
David Ogilvy of David Ogilvy & Associates, associated with Christie’s International Real Estate, has the listing.
