The property features a 17,000-square-foot mansion with seven bedrooms, eight full baths and three half-baths, and is offered fully furnished with museum-quality antiques, priceless paintings, valuable tapestries and rare antiquities collected from around the globe, some dating to the 4th century B.C.E. This is a rare opportunity to own a collector’s dream residence.
Grand iron gates open to expansive manicured grounds and formal gardens dotted with exquisite 18th and 19th century European statuary. A long private driveway leads to the majestic limestone and brick home, which is a tasteful blend of English Tudor and country French architecture.
Imposing doors imported from Paris reveal a spectacular foyer and art gallery with a magnificent carved plaster ceiling, inspired by the Braccio Nuovo at the Vatican Museum. The far end of the gallery opens to a 2,500-square-foot limestone terrace with imported Jerusalem stone floors that overlook sweeping views of the stately grounds.
