Jackie Gleason’s Spaceship-Like Mansion Hits the Market For $12M
Commissioned by Gleason during the filming of The Honeymooners sitcom in New York City, the 8.4-acre property with its dramatic, rounded forms was in part a realization of the multi-talented actor’s love for UFOs.

Gleason was intimately involved in all aspects of the home's design. While it took five years to construct, the property was completed in 1959 for the then-cost of $650,000. The house was prefabricated by a shipbuilder in an airplane hanger and then installed on site.
Now, nearly sixty years after its completion, the updated 7,450-square-foot property—and its three buildings—has hit the market for $12,000,000. Scroll through to take a closer look.
196 Furnace Dock Road, Cortlandt, NY is now being listed by Margaret Bailey, Howard Payson, and Jacqueline Campanelli of RE/MAX TOWN & COUNTRY for $12,000,000. See the full listing here.
