Former Connecticut Light & Power president Jeffrey D. Butler has sold his Avon house for $1.56 million, just four months after putting the Pembroke Drive property on the market.
The 6,800-square-foot Colonial was purchased by Donald R. Droppo Jr. and his wife Amy for just under the listing price of $1.6 million, according to public records. Donald Droppo is the president and CEO of Curtis Packaging Corp., a family-owned business in Sandy Hook.
Butler and his wife Susan paid $1.6 million for the house in 2009. It has five bedrooms and five full bathrooms and three half-bathrooms.
The brick Colonial on two acres also boasts views of the Heublein Tower and includes a game room, wine cellar, a gunite pool with hot tub, a waterfall and koi pond, a guest house with a full bath and kitchenette and a four-car heated garage.

Butler resigned from his post at CL&P after he became the lightning rod for criticism of the company’s power restoration effort following the Halloween snowstorm.
