Secret Garden Hideaway Hidden Behind Gates and Pine Forests for 70 Years
One of Fairfield County’s last great estate properties—Le Beau Château, owned by Huguette M. Clark, the copper heiress who died in May 2011 at the age of 104—sold for $14.3 million. Barbara Cleary and Leslie Razook of Barbara Cleary’s Realty Guild, represented the listing and buyer, respectively.
“I am sure the new owners will delight in the atmosphere of graceful opulence that permeates through this residence,” says Barbara Cleary, of Barbara Cleary’s Realty Guild. “The manor offers a beautiful blend of rich textures and special features that recall the romance and grandeur of a bygone era.”
The sale of Le Beau Chateau in April comes after Mrs. Clark’s other real estate holdings—three historic Manhattan apartments at 907 Fifth Avenue—sold in 2013 and 2012 for a combined $54.8 million.
Le Beau Château is a spectacular French château–style residence, nestled in the southwestern corner of Connecticut on 52 sprawling acres. Set amid spacious, mature gardens, with open meadows, wetlands, gentle streams, and babbling brooks, it offers peace, privacy, and a beguiling tranquil lifestyle.
