On the Market: Former Estate of Brooke Astor

The former New York State estate of Brooke Astor, a beloved American philanthropist and socialite who passed away last year, is on the market for a whopping $12.9 million, according to Real Estalker. The sprawling 1927 stone mansion, designed by architect William Adams Delano, measures in at 10,000 square feet, with 13 bedrooms and 9 full and two half bathrooms. The property description reads:

At the heart of this bucolic 64.60 acre haven, the 1927 stone manor designed by prominent architect William Delano embodies the quiet elegance of a classic English country house. There are 6 marble fireplace and 13 bedrooms, including staff quarters...Indoor and outdoor pools are featured along with extensive dependencies including a greenhouse, 4-bedroom gardener's cottage, carriage house and barn.

I love the genteel classic decorating. Got some ideas about placement, and I might give the wall mural idea a re-visit for my dining room.....

:ROTFL: @ on the market for a whopping $12.9 million, according to Real **Estalker.** from the other picture... I didn't even want to look. But I did and it's fabulous and the price sounds like a steal for that much land alone in new york.

Wooooow. It's breathtaking. But if I wonder if Ms. Astor has any penthouse properties available in NYC. I'd love see pictures of the interiors and let my mind wander of what only could be wished for :-)

Casa, the estate is called "Holly Hill", the town its in is Briarcliff Manor, NY. Its about 5 mins from my house, in the posh neighborhood where you'll find celebs, artists, musicians, authors, and Trump International Golf Course, not to mention home of the "Show Us Your Guns" segment from an early SNL segment! Not all the homes are as extravagant as this, most are modest but still carry insane price tags -- yearly taxes on a modest house are probably the same as what you could purchase a home for in other parts of the country, crazy! The views of the Hudson River around here are amazing, and we're just up the road from historic Sleep Hollow and next to Ossining, home of SingSing Prison (see "Breakfast At Tiffany's" for reference!)
