This classic French country estate was designed in 1914 by renowned architect David Adler for Joseph Cudahy and his wife Jean Morton Cudahy, daughter of the founder of the Morton Salt Company. Adler based his creation on the neo-classicism of "Louis XVI style"
architecture of the mid-17th century, specifically the Petit Trianon, a small chateau on the grounds of the Palace of Versailles in France.
It has been compared to the Fleur De Lys Mega Mansion in Los Angeles that recently sold for $102MM, comparable features include a posh formal dining room, a library, staff quarters, an outdoor terrace capable of seating large groups of guests for dinner, formal gardens, pool and tennis court. The most recent owner, Countess Barbara Podogowska-Cooper, has had the privilege of spending 23 years in the home of her dreams, but Barbara is ready to pass on this historical treasure to the next family.
Once entering the private gates, the 11,000 square foot estate sits on over two acres that feature a beautiful pool, tennis court, breathtaking botanical gardens, and a dramatic terrace perfect for entertaining. The interior consists of 17 formal rooms, 8 bedrooms,
10 bathrooms, grand chandeliers, gilt moldings, 11 foot ceilings, 24-karat gold Sherle Wagner bathroom fixtures, herringbone parquet flooring, and custom marble throughout.
