The Great Gatsby would have felt right at home in this amazing, Tudor-style home, the centerpiece of an eight acre estate. Built in 1914, its ballroom must have seen some amazing parties during the Roaring ‘20s.
For the 21st
century that ballroom can accommodate swank parties. The caterer or your
personal cooks will have no trouble cooking for and serving a crowd, as the
kitchen and butler’s pantry contain multiple ovens, refrigerators and
dishwashers. The list price for this home: $27 million.
Gather around a cozy fire in the living room, family room, dining room, office or master bedroom.
An extended family can live under the same room with 7 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms and 2 half-bathrooms. The compound includes a separate caretaker/guest cottage, an outbuilding with a fitness room and parking for 20.
If you like marble, rich wood, parquet floors, swimming pools, fountains, statues, formal gardens, and breathtaking views—this home could be yours. (Scroll through the 20 photos above for a glimpse of the opulence.)
Altos Hills Historical Society has compiled an extensive history of the home and the tycoon who built it.
The home is represented by Art Sharif of Sotheby’s International Realty. If you schedule a tour, ask him which world leaders and royalty have been guests of this historic mansion.
