90210 meets Bucks County? Custom-built for Joan Rivers, this palatial estate on Beverly Hills Road was intended to be a centerpiece of a master planned luxury development dubbed “Two Ponds.”
The 10-acre property boasts a main house with seven bedrooms, seven-plus bathrooms, and 12,500 square feet of living space.
It was built in 1989 by a developer, Thomas Pileggi, who was Rivers’ partner in the planned development. Rivers never moved in, and Two Ponds never came to be, after an intense, prolonged zoning battle with the local community.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the estate was eventually purchased by a non A-lister. It’s now back on the market for the first time since it was finished.
The only remnant of the original Two Ponds vision is the home’s aspirational address.
For a buyer in search of home with a backstory, this huge house deserves top billing.
