Founder of five airlines, David Neeleman, lists Connecticut home for $8.3 Million

Custom built in 2008, the eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom residence offers a wide range of amenities both indoors and outdoors making it the ideal home for family entertaining.

JetBlue founder David Neeleman and his wife, Vicki Neeleman, are asking just under $8.3 million for their 13,300-square-foot mansion in New Canaan, Connecticut.

Sited high on a ridge at the top of beloved Rosebrook Road, and nestled amongst the finest estates in Connecticut, this property is truly one of a kind.

Designed with an architectural nod to European Manor living and filled with delightful luxuries. The expansive home has been built entirely of solid stone and brick with intricate details.

Indoors, the four-level estate features an indoor basketball court, three kitchens and family rooms, elevator, smart-home technology and a 24-seat theater. The pool, spa, outdoor fireplace, grill and terraces can be found outside on over three manicured acres.

Conveniently located within walking distance to town, the home was built with stone imported from Utah and boasts unique design details like three-inch mahogany doors.

'My family and I have spent more than 15 years making memories in this incredible home. Now that my children have grown, I've found myself an empty nester, making this the right time to move on to new opportunities,' said Mr. Neeleman. 'This home was a labor of love, as evidenced in its craftsmanship. I'm confident the Houlihan sales process will identify right new owner who will appreciate its details and enjoy the estate as much as my family and I have.'
