American singer-songwriter Paul Simon and his wife, Edie Brickell, have re-listed their 32-acre Connecticut residence after an unsuccessful sale last year. Originally built in 1938, the Georgian-style estate was designed by Harold Reeve Sleeper and is located on a quiet plot close to the center of New Canaan. Boasting a beautiful whitewashed brick exterior, the 8,525-square-foot home is framed by lush greenery and sits at the crest of the property, overlooking striking vistas of the great lawn, pond, and pool.

Originally designed by Harold Reeve Sleeper, the Georgian-style estate was the long-time residence of musician Paul Simon. In fact, the Grammy Award-winner recorded many of his hit records here in the six-bedroom estate.

The sprawling, 32-acre property features many pathways and tranquil areas to wander or relax.

Embracing the home's original architecture, many rooms throughout the home have been thoughtfully renovated for modern-day living. Here, a living room/study features one of five fireplaces located within the home.    

The home features a large eat-in kitchen, fitted with custom cabinetry and modern appliances. 

The exquisite estate offers six bedrooms, along with seven full and three half baths. There's also a three-car garage, as well as a 2,400-square-foot cottage—which could easily be converted into a charming guest house, or a musician's or writer's studio. Scroll ahead to take a peek inside this premier property, currently listed for $11,900,000.

The sale includes a 2,400-square-foot cottage, which even comes with its own garage. This structure space can easily be converted into a guest house, or a creative studio. 

Although the home is extremely secluded, it is conveniently located near the center of New Canaan and is just an hour away from New York City.

82 Brookwood Lane is currently listed for $11,900,000 by Leslie Razook and Anne Krieger of William Pitt and Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty.
