Ted Sorensen’s Pound Ridge estate divided for sale

The Pound Ridge estate that was once the residence of Ted Sorensen, the speechwriter and adviser to President John F. Kennedy, has been split in half and listed for sale.

The 129 Upper Shad Road property that Sorensen dubbed “Serendipity” has been divided into two parcels. The first is listed for $1.19 million and covers 7.5 acres, which includes the 4,240-square-foot residence built in 1938 that features three bedrooms, four bathrooms, a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, a tennis court and a pool. The second parcel covers 3.5 acres and has approved plans for the construction of a five-story home; it is listed at $1.7 million.

Sorensen died in 2010 and his widow, former United Nations Assistant Secretary-General for External Relations Gillian Sorensen, sold the estate to its current buyer for $1.25 million.
