Quirky landing pad makes great sales pitch

Here’s a quirky story we liked: An estate agent selling a house in New Canaan, in the US state of Connecticut, has targeted helicopter owners by saying that, while landing an aircraft on residential property in New Canaan is strictly verboten, the estate straddles the state border into Pound Ridge, New York, where you’re welcome to do what you like.

It’s a great sales pitch, but it seems that the area available for landing is a smallish patch of lawn next to the pool which is only suitable for a Robinson R22 or similar. We suppose if you were really serious you could fill in the pool and convert the pool house into a hangar!

The five-bedroom, four-and-two-half bathroom house sits on 3.3 hectares of land and could be your for the price of US$3.7 million. R22 not included.
