Incredible Mansion That Includes Its Own Airport Hits the Market For Just $3 Million

A Connecticut mansion has just hit the market for $3 million, and it comes complete with its own FAA-approved private airport. The home in Bristol sits on 49 acres of land, with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home offers unparalleled levels of privacy, as well as 5,000 square feet of living space. A mix of granite and wood floors run throughout the home, with double doors that lead out onto a balcony at the rear of the home. The property also comes with a resistance pool, a hot tub, an indoor gym, and a spa. Other luxury amenities include an elevator, a massive great room with soaring ceilings and a grand marble fireplace, and a spiral staircase that leads to the fourth level cupola. The seller is trailblazer Barbara Hackman Franklin, a former commerce secretary under President George H.W. Bush, who created the first White House effort to recruit women to government service. When Franklin and her husband, Wallace Barnes, first commissioned the architect, he asked them what they wanted. Wallace said he wanted an airplane hangar in the house and Barbara said she wanted a gym with views. They both got what they wanted.
