Kykuit: a multi-million dollar estate with a priceless view

September 6, 2011

a few weeks ago I visited Kykuit, a 40 room mansion owned by the Rockefeller family in Tarrytown, New York.  it had an orangerie modeled after the one in Versailles, a ‘playhouse’ with a indoor pool and fully equipped basketball court, millions of dollars worth of ancient Chinese and modern art, and a view of the Palisades that they purchased to protect the pristine scenery from being marred by development.

unfortunately, photography was not allowed inside the house, but a view of the golf course, gardens, and outdoor sculptures is a fair representation of the beauty and extravagance of this Rockefeller home.
