Can we talk?

Joan Rivers’ 76-acre estate that straddles the New Milford-Washington line has sold for $4.4 million, including a 5,730-square-foot, stone-and-clapboard country house, according to the town clerk’s office in New Milford.

The estate, owned by the oft nipped-and-tucked comedian for more than a decade, was purchased by Montrose Realty Partners LLC, of Brookline, Mass., the records show. Montrose Realty couldn’t be reached for comment today.

Listing agent Carolyn Klemm of Klemm Real Estate Inc. in Washington Depot declined to comment on the plans for the property by the new owner.

According to celebrity real estate web site The Real Estalker, Rivers listed the New Milford property in 2009 at $6.5 million. Rivers purchased the property in 2000 for $1.4 million and razed the main house, except for the foundation, stone columns and a stone fireplace, and rebuilt it to her tastes, the web site said, citing property records and an interview with Rivers in Architectural Digest.

The 4-bedroom, 4-1/2 bath main house includes a country kitchen with cathedral ceilings and library with a leopard carpet, according to listing from Klemm.

Rivers’ cotton candy pink bedroom and larger than life Blackamoor figures in the master bathroom may be a bit much for some. Nevertheless, Architectural Digest appeared enthralled.

It appears that Rivers is preferring the West Coast these days. She also has her opulent New York penthouse on East 62nd Street on the market for $29.5 million.
