Talk of the arrival of the new royal baby is on everyone’s lips this week. With the prince and the duchess having brought a healthy baby son, George Alexander Louis, into the world, the throngs assembled before Buckingham Palace are buzzing with eager excitement. On the heels of this wonderful news, our thoughts turned to the style of property that might suit the needs of the growing royal family if they were to move to the New York area. We understood that the residence should cater to the lifestyles and hobbies of Kate Middleton and Prince William, while providing a number of fabulous amenities for the delight of a young child. With these points in mind, we would like to introduce two properties that are perfect for the royal family, now available for sale with Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty.
The exquisite Rosewood estate in Chappaqua, New York, offered at $24,750,000, offers an extraordinary level of craftsmanship with a spectacular design by renowned architect Boris Baranovich. The chateau-like home is massive in scale, with over 20,000 square feet of living space and more than 86 private acres of land, providing a wonderful natural landscape for the little prince to explore including 71 wooded acres under conservation easement complete with walking paths, an apple orchard and lakefront with full access rights. Seamlessly integrating with the natural surroundings, the home also has plenty of outdoor areas for play such as the infinity heated pool and spa, tennis and sports courts, and lovely gardens. Prince William being the avid sportsman that he is, and Kate growing up swimming and playing tennis would love this property for its beautiful garden, pool and similarities to their home at Buckingham Palace. The interior is characterized by rooms that are both grand and formal, and of a stature befitting royalty, with standout details including artisan crafted moldings, dramatic columns, chocolate onyx stone flooring, domed ceilings and detailed mill-work.
The royal family will also discover a host of recreational amenities at Ashfield Manor in Armonk, New York, including a 20-seat movie theatre, billiard room, swimming pool with pool house, tennis court and pavilion, and even a permit for a putting green. The happy couple plays Billiards together, and are both part of the tennis team at the Harbour Club in Chelsea, so they would be able to train their little prince well with these amenities. The 14,000 square feet of living space is ideal for grand entertaining, presenting a timeless classic style and an easy flow. The home also benefits from an exceptional location on 10+ lush acres within the prestigious gated community of Conyers Farm.
Wherever the royal family chooses to spend time raising their new son, we at Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty would like to offer them our heartfelt congratulations.
