$28.5 Million for Millbrook Mansion Owned by Johnson & Johnson Heiress

3 November 2016

Lightening farm is the name of this $28.5 million Johnson & Johnsons Millbrook Mansion. Despite its giant-sized price tag, the Lightening Farm boasts uniquely exquisite features. For instance, you can get home with lightning speed by helicopter, since the mansion has its own grass helipad.

A large Johnsons Millbrook mansion has hit the market for $28.5 million. The owner is Elizabeth Ross Libet Johnson, an heiress to a family who founded the healthcare company Johnson & Johnson.

It seems Ms. Johnson has a passion for high-end real estate.

It was nearly a month ago when she failed to find a buyer for her Upper East Side home. As a result, she relisted her $55 million property as a $95,000 a month rental.

Anyhow, Ms. Johnson doesn’t seem to be completely done with her real estate plays.

If she finds a buyer for her farmhouse, it will set a record for Millbrook. Due to the fact that the highest price someone has ever paid for a house in the village is $18.75 million.
