The properties of the late David Rockefeller continue to switch hands. His former home in Westchester was just sold for $33 million, or 50 percent over the asking price. Last March, Rockefeller, the former CEO and chairman of Chase Manhattan Corporation, passed away at the age of 101. Since then his properties have been steadily sold off.
David Rockefeller was the grandson and heir to America’s first billionaire, John D. Rockefeller, the Standard Oil founder. As reported by The Real Deal, David Rockefeller’s 11,343-square-foot home and its grounds hit the market last fall for an asking price of $22 million. The 75-acre estate, Hudson Pines, attracted plenty of attention thanks to its owner’s illustrious name. The property, built in 1938 by Mott Schmidt, also touts plenty of merit on its own. It features the main mansion with 11-bedrooms, a guest house with three-bedrooms, a six-stall barn stable and large carriage house, an outdoor heated pool, a helipad and greenhouses, making a total of 12 structures on the property. The famed banker and philanthropist had lived in the home until his passing. The name of the new buyer was undisclosed. David Turner of Houlihan Lawrence Private Brokerage handled the listing.
Last month, another of the Rockefeller properties was sold. His Upper East Side mansion at 146 East 46th Street sold for $27 million, a reduced price. The four-story, 9,777 square feet brick and terra-cotta mansion was listed for $32.5 million last year. Built in 1924, it was the home in which David and his wife Peggy raised their six children. The double-wide house included eight bedrooms, eight fireplaces and a landscaped garden spanning 3,000 additional square feet. That home had been listed with Brown Harris Stevens Realty.
