Neumann Posts Largest Brokered Sale in Redding History


Deer Run, located at 26 Giles Hill Road in Redding, CT, was sold for $13.6 million to a family from Manhattan, NY on March 17, 2016 by real estate agents Jane Tullo and Karla Murtaugh of boutique brokerage Neumann Real Estate in Ridgefield, CT. The property was listed for sale by Tullo and Murtaugh, in conjunction with David Ogilvy of David Ogilvy & Associates of Greenwich, CT, and offered a sprawling 16,000 square foot manor home and just over 300 acres of pristine contiguous land including a 7 acre lake, fishing pond, a boathouse, miles of riding and hiking trails, and lush fields. It is the largest contiguous parcel of privately-owned land in Fairfield County. Neumann Real Estate represents nine area towns as the exclusive Affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, the world’s leading luxury real estate network

“Our company was honored to represent such an extraordinary property and I was pleased to assist our team and be an integral part of its sale. After months of negotiation, Deer Run now has a new owner, “ says Russ Neumann, broker and partner at Neumann Real Estate. “This deal represents the best in a real estate transaction and the commitment and cooperation amongst brokerages, agents and attorneys to bring it to completion was commendable. Jane Tullo and Karla Murtaugh did such a wonderful job of marketing the property both locally and nationally, and with Christie’s as our partner internationally, we knew we would attract the right buyer.”

“This was the perfect opportunity for someone who values privacy over all else,” says Tullo, “The scenic, unspoiled land is a nature lover’s paradise.”

“It is extremely rare to find such a spectacular, expansive setting in such close proximity to New York City. Deer Run offers a wonderfully sophisticated lifestyle for the family who has an appreciation of natural beauty, but prefers to live under the radar,” continued Murtaugh.

Located in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains just over an hour from Manhattan, the grand estate features a striking stone and shingle Manor house. With seven bedrooms and spanning 16,000 square feet, the home blends a relaxed ambience with grand architecture. A veritable outdoor paradise, seven trails lace the grounds, imparting abundant opportunities for hunting, fishing, bird-watching, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, and hiking. On the northeastern side of the property, Mirror Lake is large enough to canoe or boat on, and its crystal-clear waters are perfect for swimming. A boathouse with a 15-foot deck, a ramp, and a dock rests beside the lake. Miles of riding trails begin at the barn, while an apple orchard and bountiful fields framed by fieldstone walls also adorn the grounds. Indoor and outdoor heated pools, a tennis court, a gymnasium with an indoor basketball, and a billiards room, afford additional recreational diversions. Sequestered above the four-car garage, a private one-bedroom guest apartment is ideal as a caretaker’s wing or a studio.
