HAVE YOU HEARD? Yachting champ’s estate and Tommy Hilfiger’s home up for sale

A majestic estate built for America’s Cup winner Charles Oliver Iselin is being offered for sale at $18.95 million.

The 23,000 s/f house is part of the exclusive Premium Point gated community made up of a series of small islands in the Long Island Sound off the shore of New Rochelle .

Connected to the mainland by a single bridge and with its own private security force, famous residents have included J. P. Morgan, Norman Rockwell and former New York Yankees manager, Joe Torre.

No. 116 Premium Point is a 23,000 s/f spread dubbed All View that has 13 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, nine fireplaces, a cinema, wine cellar, billiard room, staff quarters, sun porch, gym, four kitchens (chef’s, butler’s pantry, family eat-in and staff!), a formal dining room, formal living room, family room, library and a six-car garage.

It was built for Iselin in 1890 and designed by architects Sydney Stratton and Stanford White and has been fully restored by the seller. The grounds were originally conceived by the father of American landscape architecture and designer of Central Park, Frederick Law Olmsted, which today include a private beach, boat dock, badminton, mini-tennis, basketball court and swimming pool.

There are stone paved terraces, two mahogany decks, a custom designed fire pit dining table for 16 with a built-in banquette, two wisteria-covered pergolas, a koi pond and a rose arbor.

It’s listed with Louise Phillips Forbes of Halstead Properties.

 

The former family home of designer Tommy Hilfiger is on the market for $6.75 million.

Compass agent Brian Milton is listing the seven bedroom, 7.5-bath Appleyard Estate in Greenwich, CT. Interior Marketing Group (IMG) staged the home for the market.

Located at 578 Riversville Road in Greenwich, the colonial home has a pool, spa, har-tru tennis court, movie theatre, art room, heated three-car garage and cobble-stone driveway.

The property was the backdrop for Hilfiger’s CBS design program, The Cut and MTV’s Rich Girls in which the Hilfiger children showed-off the home’s professional grade recording studio.

It was bought by the current owners in 2006 and “meticulously maintained.” according to Cheryl Eisen, the IMG staging expert who prepared the home for sale.

“Style, creativity and family are in the DNA of this home. You can feel it from the moment you enter,” said Eisen.
