HOUSE OF THE DAY: Socialite Brooke Astor’s Massive Westchester Estate Just Sold For A Bargain $7.5 MillionNovember 14, 2011 No Comments
The Westchester estate of philanthropist Brooke Astor, who died in 2007, is finally in contract after sitting on the market for years, according to the Daily News (via Zillow).
A family with two children reportedly paid just under $ 7.5 million for the 65-acre spread, Holly Hill, which was first listed in November 2008 for $ 12.9 million.
Astor’s son Anthony Marshall had chopped the price four times since then, most recently in August to $ 7.5 million.
The estate, in Briarcliff Manor, includes a 10-bedroom stone manor that was built in 1927, as well as several cottages and two pools.
A Swiss banker bought Astor’s Park Avenue co-op in February for $ 19 million, a steep discount from the $ 46 million for which it was originally listed.
