Richard Gere asks $28M for longtime Westchester County estate

Movie star lists 11,600 sf Pound Ridge home on 48 acres after moving to North Salem

“Pretty Woman” actor Richard Gere is selling his 49-acre estate in Westchester County for $28 million.

The 72-year-old actor decided to leave his Pound Ridge compound of 36 years to start a new life in North Salem with his wife, Alejandra Silva, and their two young children, according to the New York Post. They paid $9.8 million for a seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom Georgian-style mansion there that was built in the 1930s.

Gere’s Pound Ridge property centers around a three-story Colonial home 11,600 square feet that has eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, nine fireplaces and several powder rooms. He paid $1.51 million in 1986 for the property at 81 Lyndel Rd., according to property records.

In addition to the main house, it includes two large secondary residences, a shed and a six-stall barn with three cupulas. A swimming pool completes the picture.

The estate, listed last fall as a “magical country compound” 50 miles from Manhattan, comes with 4,300 acres of protected land. It has riding trails, a private lake with a sandy beach and a separate island to row to, according to the listing.

Other amenities include views of rolling hills, a hidden soccer field and mature trees throughout the property.
