A Russian billionaire by the name of Valery Kogan had plans to demolish an 18,000 square foot mansion located at 18 Simmons Lane and build an even bigger mansion. The proposed mansion was going to be in excess of 30,000 square feet and include such amenities like eight bedrooms, a gym, theater, lockers, wine cellar, staff quarters, game rooms, a Turkish bath, a Finnish bath and a special room in the basement for grooming dogs. Also the house was going to have 26 toilets! If the plans were put into effect, the house would have had 625,000 cubic feet, making it by far the largest mansion in Greenwich.
The owner of the property is Olga Kogan, Valery’s wife.
