Palatial Pennsylvania residence built for Joan Rivers on the market for $2.7 million

90210 meets Bucks County? Custom-built for Joan Rivers, this palatial estate on Beverly Hills Road was intended to be a centerpiece of a master planned luxury development dubbed "Two Ponds."

Once upon a time, Joan Rivers had a quixotic dream. The trailblazing comedian wanted to build a Beverly Hills-inspired celebrity enclave in Bucks County, Penn.—and make a fortune in the process.

Folks were eager to check out the residence built for Rivers and her husband, Edgar Rosenberg. Rosenberg died in 1987 at age 61, and Rivers died in 2014 at age 81. Though Rivers never moved in and her planned community never materialized, the curious saga spurred interest in the home, which is now on the market for the first time since 1989.

The 10-acre property boasts a main house with seven bedrooms, seven-plus bathrooms, and 12,500 square feet of living space.

It was built in 1989 by a developer, Thomas Pileggi, who was Rivers' partner in the planned development. Rivers never moved in, and Two Ponds never came to be, after an intense, prolonged zoning battle with the local community.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the estate was eventually purchased by a non A-lister. It's now back on the market for the first time since it was finished.

The only remnant of the original Two Ponds vision is the home's aspirational address.

For a buyer in search of home with a backstory, this huge house deserves top billing.
