Glenn Close Sells New York State Farmhouse for $2.75 Million

Joyce Chen

Glenn Close has officially closed on a deal for her dreamy New York state retreat. According to the Los Angeles Times, the property sold for $2.75 million, a substantial loss given the original asking price of $3.6 million.

Situated in Bedford Hills, the bucolic estate spans an impressive 10 acres and features a main residence, a guest cottage, a barn (converted into an office space), and a playhouse with a loft. The main house is a historic relic: Built back in 1910, it features four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms spread out across 5,773 square feet. Many of the original period details have been retained over the years, perhaps most notably the intricate tin ceilings that top the otherwise fairly modern kitchen. Other vintage features include period millwork and wide moldings. A spacious front porch welcomes guests into the main house and opens onto an entrance hall with unique hand-painted floors. From there, a series of vibrantly decorated rooms fill out the ground floor—bright red-orange built-in bookshelves in the library, red-orange trim in the paneled dining room, and a more subdued cream-colored living room with bay windows.

Upstairs, the master suite features mint-colored walls and a row of built-in bookshelves as well as a walk-in closet, an adjoining home office known as the Boat Room, a private balcony overlooking the backyard, and a large master bathroom with a whirlpool tub. In total, the home features five fireplaces (one of which is in the master suite).

The property, known as Beanfield, holds special meaning for Close, who hosted her daughter Annie Starke’s wedding at the home back in 2018. At the time, Starke told Brides magazine, “It’s a communal home base for our beloved masses, so to speak, and we couldn’t imagine our wedding taking place anywhere else. The ‘profoundness’ of Beanfield, meaning its communal importance and staggering natural beauty, served as the central inspiration.” Close owned the home for nearly 30 years.
