I’m not sure where I stumbled upon Gallison Hall which is currently for sale in Charlottesville, Virginia but it was definitely worth a deep dive into the historic house. The Georgian style house was designed by the architect Stanhope Johnson and built between 1931 and 1933 and sits just three miles west of the University of […]

I don’t think my obsession with Bunny Mellon will ever end so it was exciting to see another one of her Cape Cod properties, Scallop Path, come on the market last week. The larger 26-acre Cape Cod compound, Oyster Harbors, was sold to billionaire William Koch for $19.5 million in 2012, but she also owned […]

No one renovates Sag Harbor houses better than Steven Gambrel and a house he designed from the ground up at 52 Glover Street has just come on the market for $6,995,000. Considering that it’s turnkey ready and within very easy walking distance Main Street, makes it a pretty good deal. If you’re not convinced, you […]

I always pass by this townhouse at 46 East 73rd Street on my walk to Madison Avenue and Central Park. I’ve long admired the glossy black door and topiaries so when the holiday decorations from 2019 stayed up for all of last year, I decided to investigated who owned it. Turns out that it’s Gayfryd […]

Dunrobin Attic Sale

04 . 12 . 21

It seems like everyone was cleaning out their closets and cupboards during the pandemic even castles. The Dunrobin Attic Sale is scheduled for 20 April 2021 at Bonhams in Edinburgh and will include more than 450 lots of paintings, portraits and historic photographs, picture frames, marble sculptures, crested dinner services, and an array of treasures […]

For Sale: Denbigh Farm

02 . 08 . 21

It’s always interesting when a real estate listing doesn’t include any interior photos. It usually means that they are in very bad shape or that the owner wants them to remain private. I suspect it’s the latter in case of Denbigh Farm in Greenwich, Connecticut which is currently for sale by Susie Hilfiger for $40 […]

If you’re in the market for a Gilded age mansion, one of the last remaining ones on Fifth Avenue is now for sale. The American Irish Historical Society just just listed their landmarked 15,000 square-foot headquarters at 991 Fifth Avenue. The price tag of $52 Million townhouse that sits directly across from the south wing […]

Winter Garden

It feels like there have been so many auctions of exquisite collections in the last few years. It makes me feel sad to see them be broken up but hopefully the furniture and objects end up going to good homes. Susan Gutfreund sold her Henri Samuel decorated duplex apartment at 834 Fifth Avenue last year […]

The End of an Era

01 . 17 . 21

My favorite living room is no more. Kate Rheinstein Brodsky and family moved recently so I thought a last look at their apartment was in order. Thanks to the real estate listing, we can now understand the layout with the floorplan and view a few more rooms. I can’t wait until we see their new […]

It’s raining in New York so it feels like the perfect time to escape virtually to Provence to take a look at Les Ramades, the Provence home of Betty and François Catroux. It was on the market last year for $11.5 Million because François wanted to be near the sea and had bought a place […]

Sir John Richardson, the “renowned Picasso scholar, curator and bon vivant” was an inveterate collector as seen by the rooms in his lower Fifth Avenue loft and Connecticut house. He also had exquisite taste and now some of his fabulous finds can be yours when they come up for auction at Stair Galleries and Sotheby’s […]

I perfectly happy planning my Upstate and New England trips until I saw this Canoneta Orchard Townhouse for sale in Sóller, Mallorca. It was designed by Berrow Projects which was founded in 2016 by Archie and Monty Berrow who fell in love with the architecture and natural beauty of Sóller and saw an opportunity to […]

Someone who wishes to remain anonymous, sent me photos this weekend of the 9 East 71st Street townhouse when it was published in Architectural Digest in 1995 after they read my Friday Bon Weekend blog post. At the time it was owned by billionaire businessman Leslie Wexner who had architect Thierry Despont and interior designer […]

I really can’t believe that it will be August next weekend. Times flies when you can’t go anywhere or do anything. I jest of course. We can do things in New York but I have no desire to eat outside with people not wearing masks even if we are in one of the states that […]

Palazzo Sacchetti

07 . 17 . 20

Since we can’t travel the world right now, the next best thing is to travel virtually. Today, Gucci showed their Gucci Epilogue collection at the Palazzo Sacchetti in Rome and I took a deep dive into its historic beauty. Palazzo Sacchetti is one of the most beautiful late Renaissance buildings in all of Rome. The […]

Sears Cottage

Some of you might remember that my friend Grant Gibson spends time in Maine every summer. I asked him today if he still planned to go since they have a two week quarantine for anyone coming into the state. I have read they might change this since most of the businesses in the state depend […]

There is nothing I find more vulgar that people who redecorate their home just so they can have it published again. If it’s done right the first time, you should never have to do it again. Such was the case with the Fifth Avenue apartment of Susan Gutfreund and her late husband John that was […]
