A sprawling Connecticut estate owned once owned by real estate baroness Leona Helmsley, dubbed the “Queen of Mean” for her frequent tyrannical outbursts, has hit the market for $65 million.

Helmsley died at the 40-acre Greenwich property known as Dunnellen Hall in 2007 when it was revealed that her will was to leave $12 million to her maltese Trouble.

Her estate then sold the land and home of $35 million in 2010, the New York Daily News reported. The current owners have since completely renovated it .

“A new buyer will experience 40 years of open rolling lawns surrounding this fabulous, virtually new brick manor with memorable distant views of Long Island Sound to the south,” said broker David Ogilvy, in the New York Daily News. “The house itself has been totally renovated from top to bottom. It is essentially an entirely new house, yet with the character of a bygone era.”

The house has nine bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
