Greenwich, Connecticut, has been one of the most coveted real-estate destinations during the pandemic for wealthy New Yorkers in search of more space.

But one affluent New Yorker —  fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger — is giving up his Greenwich property and moving to sunnier climes. He’s listed his 22-acre estate for $47.5 million, Sotheby’s International Realty told Business Insider.

Hilfiger and his wife, Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger, bought the property in 2010 for $31.4 million, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The lavish estate includes a 13,344-square-foot main residence built in 1939, rose and water gardens, a swimming pool, tennis court, guest cottage, greenhouse, and detached four-bay garage. Janet Milligan of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
