An 18-room mansion in Katonah, part of Bedford in Westchester, is on
the market for $22 million, the Wall Street Journal reported. The
12,900-square-foot house used to belong to Tommy Mottola, a former Sony Music
executive who used to be married to singer Mariah Carey. Current owner
Sara Arnell, the chief executive of an advertising agency, bought the
home from him in 2001 for $18.3 million.”I literally looked at it once
and thought, this is an amazing piece of property and an amazing
home,” she said.

The house has nine bedrooms, a plush, 20-seat home
theater, a wine cellar and a sprawling eat-in kitchen with a sitting
area and a fireplace. “You can practically live in the kitchen,” Arnell said. “It’s that big.”

Arnell said said she spent several
million dollars on home improvements, which included the addition of
a conservatory with a fireplace off the kitchen. She also added a
Juliet balcony off the master bedroom that overlooks the terrace and 80-foot pool. Other structures on the property include a quaint writer’s cottage and garage space for as many as 10 cars and a “kid’s cottage,” as Arnell described it. She is
selling the house because her two children are no longer living there,
and it is listed with Westchester-based Houlihan Lawrence. [Wall Street Journal]
