Located on the shores of Guilford, CT is the huge coastal mansion owned by David A. Beckerman and Ruthann (Ruth) F. Beckerman. Mr. Beckerman is the Founder, Chairman, President, and CEO of Starter Corp. which runs the Starter Clothing Line, a manufacturer of fleeces, footwear, compressions, and other accessories.
Starter was founded in 1971 in New Haven, Connecticut by David Beckerman, a former basketball player for Southern Connecticut State University, to manufacture team uniforms for high school athletic programs. The company is still headquartered in New Haven today. He started Starter with two people and built it up to 1,800 employees in Cedar Rapids, Memphis, and New Haven, as well as an office in Hong Kong.
This 12,864 square foot single family home has 8 bedrooms and 9 full bathrooms. The home is situated on 14.65 acres, of which half have since been subdivided and sold off to the owner of the newly built mansion next door. The current appraised value of the property is $6,250,000, making it one of the most expensive homes in the town of Guilford, CT.
