This Great Gatsby-worthy property is ready for a new landlord.

A castle-like mansion in Greenwich, Connecticut has hit the market for $39 million. The stunning 18,954-square-foot mansion may appear historic, but it was actually built in 2001.

The sprawling Georgian brick mansion is accessed via a cherry tree-lined driveway that leads to 8.23 ​​”park-like” acres. The grounds feature a 75 foot Haggerty mosaic floor heated gypsum pool, full bath pool house, fully equipped kitchen and ‘expansive’ stone patio to the entry.

There is also an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven and three grills, a tennis court and a five car garage.

Inside, the home features eight bedrooms, nine full baths, and four halves. There are eight fireplaces throughout, an elevator, a dumbwaiter, a custom three-story chandelier, a lobby with hardwood floors, a custom sweeping staircase, and a beautiful two-story mahogany library with an upper gallery and French doors leading to a covered porch.
