Dutchess County’s historic Migdale Castle was built in 1927 for the daughter of Andrew Carnegie, business magnate and industrialist, and is said to have been patterned after Carnegie’s own Skibo Castle in Scotland. The current owners spent four years renovating and restoring the sprawling 34,500 square foot mansion. The four-storey main residence is made up of opulent rooms including a baronial great hall, a drawing room opening to a grand terrace, a formal banquet room that seats 22 and a library. There is a commercial grade kitchen with two butler’s pantries and an adjacent breakfast room. Four wings located on the second and third floors comprise the private chambers totalling ten bedrooms, ten full bathrooms and an artist’s studio. The lower entertaining level showcases a fully equipped gymnasium, pub, golf simulation, cinema, lounge and 5,000 bottle wine cellar.
Overlooking the 5 acre back lawn is an indoor, enclosed edgeless pool with Desert Aire System that keeps the temperature consistently two degrees warmer than the pool. Radiant heated Jerusalem stone is used for the floors and the surrounding area. The home spa includes a hot tub, steam room, sauna, massage/treatment room as well as a full bath and dressing room. The 200 acre estate also includes a 5,000 square foot gate house, 10,000 square foot staff house, numerous ponds, a large organic garden with greenhouse, tennis court with cabana and views of the Catskill Mountains. Migdale Castle was on the market for $25 million in 2017, it has since been relisted for $14 million with Kenneth J. Moore of Classiques Modernes International Realty.
