The custom-built outdoor theater, designed by artist Beverly Pepper, has hosted private performances by Christopher Plummer, the New York Philharmonic, James Earl Jones, Tommy Tune and Marvin Hamlisch.

Additionally, there’s a in-ground pool with cabana rooms, a tennis court and a wooded walking path.

The listing brokers are Melissa Colabella and Anthony Lando, of William Pitt Julia B. Fee, of Sotheby’s International Realty.

“This property lives like its own Storm King,” Colabella said, referring to the open-air museum in upstate New York. “We’re not just selling the house, we’re selling a living, breathing work of art.”

Waccabuc, a tiny hamlet in the town of Lewisboro, was once referred to by the Upstart Business Journal as home to a “collection of privacy-loving CEOs and bright stars in other firmaments.”
