The actress, singer and producer has put her Bedford Corners home on the market for $3.6M.

Emmy Award winner and Westchester County native Glenn Close has listed her 10.67-acre estate in Bedford Corners for $3.6 million.

The acclaimed actress has tapped Muffin Dowdle of Ginnel Real Estate to oversee the sale of her five-bedroom, five-bathroom estate at 136 Succabone Road in Bedford. Close, a longtime resident of the tony suburb, home to many stars of the screen, is the latest notable individual with local roots to put her house on the market.

The Real Deal noted earlier this month that actor Bruce Willis and his wife, model and actress Emma Heming, had cut the price of their 22-acre Bedford Corners estate to $8.7 million. Claudio Reyna, a former captain of the U.S. men’s national soccer team, also recently listed his Bedford Corners home for $2 million.

Close’s property consists of 5,773 square feet of indoor space, a guest cottage, a playhouse with a sleeping loft and a two-car garage. Built in 1910 as a farmhouse, the home was later renovated by Norwalk-based architectural firm Shope Reno Wharton, according to Dwell, and its listing with Ginnel touts its “substantial millwork wide moldings and five fireplaces.” Other amenities include an exercise room, an in-ground pool with a separate spa, an out building and a covered porch.

The property, known as Beanfield, has reportedly been home to Close, who was born and raised in nearby Greenwich, since 1991. The star of “Fatal Attraction,” “The Natural” and myriad other movies, plays and television shows has listed the home almost a year after the property hosted the wedding of Close’s daughter, Annie Starke, to management consultant Marc Albu.

Ginnel told TRD that taxes for Close’s home are approximately $68,600 per year. The home last traded for $1.75 million in 1989, according to Ginnel’s Dowdle, who came in at No. 4 in TRD‘s ranking of the top residential brokers in Westchester earlier this year, did not return a request for comment about the listing for Close.

As previously noted by TRD, a first quarter Douglas Elliman market report noted that residential sales in Westchester had climbed 9.2 percent year-year-over, while the median sales price in the county jumped 4.6 percent, to $463,000.
