The Most Expensive Home In The U.S. Is In Greenwich, C.T. (VIDEO)

We recently rounded up ten homes from across the country that are on the market for over $100 million and we're still reeling from the thought of these palatial estates. So, you can imagine our shock when we came across this new listing for the most expensive home in the U.S. -- a Greenwich, CT mansion worth a whopping $190 million.

At over 13,000-square-feet, Copper Beech Farm is on 50 waterfront acres with stunning views of the Long Island Sound. The 1,800-foot private driveway leads to not only the twelve-bedroom French Renaissance home, but a 75-foot outdoor pool, a grass tennis court, wine cellar and a private apple orchard. The waterfront property is currently used as a weekend retreat by its owners. We can only imagine what their main home must look like -- the White House, perhaps?

Built in 1896, the home has been owned by the Greenway family (which developed U.S. Steel with Andrew Carnegie) and more recently by timber tycoon John Rudey. David Ogilvy, the listing agent, told Forbes that, "the $190 million list price is based on numerous comparables for the area, having crunched the average sales prices per acre for close to a dozen nearby properties — none of which offer even close to the same amount of acreage."

But perhaps the most surprising aspect of this listing is the fact that it includes -- wait for it -- two offshore islands.

Watch the video above to check out the estate, and let us know if you are swooning too.
