$49,500,000 | Built 1900 | 17,003 Sq. Ft. | 8 Beds | 10.5+ Baths | 200 Acres
A sprawling 200 acre estate with land in Connecticut and New York has been reduced to $49.5 million. The historic Hillandale Estate had previously been on the market for $95 million in 2007 and more recently for $75 million in 2015. The Real Deal revealed that the property is owned by Charlene Haroche, wife of the late Gilbert Haroche, co-founder of Liberty Travel. The 17,000 square foot mansion was built in 1900 for the Sulzberger family, longtime publishers of The New York Times. The Haroches purchased the estate from the Sulzbergers in the 1990s before pouring more than $30 million into renovations. Sitting on 200+ acres on 12 separate tax lots, the estate includes 2 guest homes, indoor and outdoor pools, pool house, greenhouse, 2 horse barns and private lakes. There are also wooded trails, an enchanting hedge maze for children and over 5.5 miles of private roads.
The 8 bedroom, 10 bathroom main house showcases ornate period details including imported marble, limestone, onyx and stained glass. Fireplaces serve as focal points of the hand-carved panelled formal living and dining rooms, cloakroom, library, conservatory and breakfast room. This estate can easily accommodate even the largest indoor or outdoor events. With its stately stone masonry and its clay-tiled roof, this European-style estate is a striking reminder of what can be accomplished when master craftspeople are given the finest materials. The Hillandale Estate is on the market for $49.5 million with Lisa Simonsen of Douglas Elliman.
