UPDATED Dec. 28, 2021, 12:09 p.m.: WWE says a report that CEO and chairman Vince McMahon has listed his Greenwich, Connecticut, mansion is incorrect.

The home at 16 Hurlingham Drive is indeed for sale, asking $32 million, but according to a WWE spokesperson it does not belong to McMahon, whose home is not for sale, contrary to a report by Wrestling News that has since been taken down.

Records show the Hurlingham Drive property was purchased for $11.8 million in 2014. The estate is located on 10 waterfront acres off of Converse Lake in the Conyers Farm enclave. According to a Compass listing, the two-story, single-family residence was built in 1984 and renovated in 1989.

The finished home is more than 17,000 square feet, not including an unfinished basement comprising more than 3,400 square feet. The lot is more than 435,000 square feet.

The six-bedroom, nine-and-a-half bathroom home includes a grand room for entertaining and an invisible edge pool with a spa and heated terracing. Shelly Tretter Lynch of Compass holds the listing.

The source of the confusion may have been that the home matches a description reported by the Connecticut Post following a U.S. Senate candidate disclosure filed by Linda McMahon in October 2009. Linda, Vince’s wife and the former president and CEO of Stamford-based WWE, ultimately lost her bid for Senate in Connecticut to a Democrat.

McMahon purchased WWE in 1982 and has maintained an active presence at its events. Forbes pegs his net worth at about $2 billion.

Greenwich is among the nation’s top luxury real estate markets. Earlier this month, Tremblant Capital founder Brett Barakett and his wife sold their waterfront home in Greenwich for $50 million. The buyer used a Delaware-based limited liability company to make the purchase.

The Greenwich housing market has been one of the hottest in the tri-state area.

Compass’ third-quarter market report showed sales were on track to break a record in the area set only a year ago. Through the first three quarters, 1,041 houses, condos and co-ops were sold in Greenwich and sales volume was 44 percent higher year-over-year.
