Built in 1899 for former judge Alonzo Castle Monson, the historic cottage at 92 Coopers Neck Lane later belonged to Virginia Beggs Carnegie, who named it Clyden after a river near the Carnegie family’s Scottish hometown. The 12,000-square-foot home has 11 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms and sits on 4.6 acres, which also include an in-ground pool and tennis court. The property was on the market for $37.5 million two years ago, but is now listed at $29.5 million. [Behind the Hedges]
