Why cut now? “When you have a house on the market, you’re always thinking about those things,” said Mr. Janklow, a literary agent whose clients include Anderson Cooper and Simon Cowell.

According to Brown Harris, the house has a movie theater, a marble-floored drawing room, a garden of Portuguese cobblestone, a mercury-mirrored dining room and a master suite where his bathroom has a fireplace and hers has pink silk carpeting.
