Connecticut home of late Bloomingdale’s exec asks $1.69M

The late Marvin Traub transformed Bloomingdale’s from a buttoned-up store into an aspirational luxury mecca in the ’70s and ’80s, where even Queen Elizabeth came to shop.

Traub previously told The Post that the Queen “didn’t choose Saks, and she didn’t choose Bergdorf — she chose Bloomingdale’s.”

Now, as Bloomie’s celebrates its 150th anniversary, the late chairman’s modern home in Greenwich, Connecticut, has hit the market for $1.69 million.

Traub, who died at age 87 in 2012, was known as a “visionary merchant” and a “retailing impresario.”

He also had an eye for modern real estate, building this custom contemporary home in 1980 at 33 Langhorne Lane, just off of Round Hill Road.

The four-bedroom, 3½-bath home sits on 6.47 acres and comes with a pool, a tennis court, a pond, plus enclosed garden and water views.
