The home that Yankee Candle constructed simply surfaced on the market at $23 million in Massachusetts — and it’s a doozy.
Half-theme park, half-mega-mansion, the 120,000-square-foot compound was constructed over the course of 20 years for Michael Kittredge, the entrepreneur who grew a small do-it-yourself candle operation into one of many largest candle producers within the nation, Yankee Candle. Kittredge died at 67 in 2019, and his son Mick is dealing with the sale.
Beautiful in scope, the 60-acre property grew parallel to Kittredge’s enterprise over time. It began out as a modest three-bedroom Colonial within the Eighties and developed into a non-public oasis with an facilities listing that places different luxurious listings to disgrace.
