My grandmother loved Sergio Franchi, she was proud that he was a famous Italian-American entertainer that chose Connecticut as his home. Franchi purchased a 240-acre estate in Stonington, Connecticut in September 1979. I just saw today that if you have a dozen million dollars in your account, you could own it.

Franchi was described as one of Ed Sullivan's favorite guests, appearing dozens of times. He was a recording star, releasing over 25 albums in his career. One of the pioneers of traveling Las Vegas-style entertainment, Franchi entertained millions over his career. Franchi passed away in 1990, and his family listed the estate for sale just last year, in November 2021.
