Chastellux, a spectacular 24,000 square foot historic residence, has just hit the market for $10.9 million. Offered for the first time in a generation, the important lakefront home sits on 8.2 acres and was built by some of the most sought after professionals of the day. Designed by architects McKim, Mead and White and built in 1930 for Mrs. Ruth Hill Beard, the mansion’s interiors were originally designed by McMillen and the landscape by the Olmsted Brothers. There are 14 bedrooms and 11.5 bathrooms. The thousands of private acres that comprise Tuxedo Park are surrounded by 70,000 acres of forever wild parkland, stretching from the western edge of the Ramapo Mountains to the Hudson River. According to Virtual Globe Trotting, the property is owned by Gary Parr, Deputy Chairman of Lazard Frères.
