On the Market
A Piece of Gilded Age Glamour Is Up for Grabs
A historic 27,000-square-foot mansion in New York’s Tuxedo Park is on the market for the first time in decades. Completed in 1930, Chastellux was built on 8.2 acres above Tuxedo Lake from a design by legendary architects McKim, Mead & White. The landscape was designed by the Olmsted Brothers, with interiors by McMillen, the oldest extant decorating firm in the US.
In addition to nine family bedrooms and four-plus staff bedrooms, the French chateau–style manor sports 16 fireplaces, a music hall, a billiard room, a teahouse, an orchard, and its original kitchen. The property is listed with Francine Liza of Tuxedo Hudson Realty for $10.9 million.
Saint Marks Place Grows in Brooklyn
Construction has topped out at Saint Marks Place, a 100-unit condominium project in Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill neighborhood. Avdoo & Partners Development has partnered with INC Architecture & Design on the 12-story building, with lush landscaping by Terrain.
The elevated façade is inspired by the neighborhood’s historic brownstones, modernized with bold terra-cotta modules and 338 floor-to-ceiling windows. Units are available in 39 different floor plans, ranging from studios to four-bedroom homes, with most offering outdoor space. Residents also have access to a large outdoor garden and 19,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space, including a state-of-the-art fitness center curated by The Wright Fit. A sales gallery is welcoming prospective owners at 84 Saint Marks Place.
