One of Westchester County's most illustrious properties, the 19th-century estate spans 15,458 square feet with eight bedrooms, 13.5 baths, equestrian facilities, magnificent gardens, a greenhouse, tennis court and pool. The interior has been renovated, mixing sleek, new appliances with historic moldings and woodwork.
The news comes on the heels of Bruce Willis' recent real estate purchase in Bedford: two hilltop properties overlooking the Croton Reservoir. Over the years, several members of New York's social elite have called Bedford home including Bill and Hillary Clinton.
First listed for $12.75 million, the deal closed at the end of September, according to property records. Houlihan Lawrence held the listing.
