The home of Stillwater's most famous couple has been sold for $1.825 million to an undisclosed buyer.

For the past four years, actress Jessica Lange and playwright Sam Shepard have been trying to sell their estate, located at 903 4th Street N.

They took it off the market last fall and then re-listed it this summer, said Jill Roffers, a real estate agent with SKY Sotheby's International Realty, which handled the sale.

Roffers would not name the buyer, citing a confidentiality agreement. She said the new owner closed on the house last Friday.

The sellers were asking for $1.95 million for the 1892 Victorian home, which sits on 2.5 acres and offers "a breathtaking St. Croix River Valley view," according to the online listing.

In 2004, the couple tried to sell their estate for $3.3 million. They bought the former bed and breakfast for $415,000 in 1994 and raised three children in the house for nine years.

Last winter, Lange, a native of Cloquet, Minn., bemoaned the changes in Stillwater in an interview with the New York Daily News.

"When we first moved to Stillwater it felt like a real place," she told the Daily News. "It had a downtown with a hardware store, a furniture store, a clothing store. Now it's all gift shops and these terrible condominiums. It was a little town with a great deal of character. Everything gets yuppified, I guess."
