If you wish you could’ve been the buyer of Michael Douglas’s fictional Connecticut mansion from the 2014 movie And So It Goes, the real-life property is now on the market for one deep-pocketed fan to purchase.
The Rob Reiner-directed flick follows Douglas’s character, Oren Little, a high-end Fairfield County real estate agent who’s trying to offload his priciest listing to date—his own Greenwich estate. Hoping for one last big sale before he retires, viewers get to see a lot of the residence as Oren hosts different showings.

Interestingly enough, the just shy of $8.6 million asking price is right around the same as what Oren was hoping to get. Sadly, however, Diane Keaton, who co-stars as Leah Hartman, won’t be your neighbor. Joy Kim Metalios with Houlihan Lawrence has the listing.
The ivy-covered Colonial, which dates back to 1930, was originally built by J. Alden and Quentin Twachtman, a brotherly 19th-century architect duo and the sons of American painter John Henry Twachtman. The brick-clad abode is positioned on roughly four acres and features a ton of outdoor amenities like a clay tennis court, a swimming pool, and an adjoining pool house.
Today, the 7,691-square-foot spread looks virtually unchanged from when it appeared on screen. You’ll find that everything from the smartly wallpapered dining room to the light fixtures, hardwood flooring, and French doors are intact. Several years prior to filming, the five-bedroom, eight-bath home underwent a renovation that included updates to the scullery kitchen, family room, and guest wing.
Other highlights of the estate include a wood-paneled library, a slate patio, and, of course, the primary suite, which is decked out with a cozy fireplace, two bathrooms, and a large dressing room. And yes, Douglas did rest his head here.
