This $22M Red Hook Property Once Belonged to the Astor Family
Pretenders to the Astor throne might want to settle in at Atalanta, a 290-acre riverside estate in Red Hook that’s listed for $22 million with John Friend of Houlihan Lawrence. In 1851, Franklin Hughes Delano (FDR’s great uncle) and his wife, Laura Astor Delano, a granddaughter of John Jacob Astor, built the 16,000-square-foot home on land gifted to them for their wedding. The property includes a stately brick residence with ceiling murals and a 5,000-bottle wine cellar, plus a 75-foot pool, a pool house, and a horse barn with indoor and outdoor riding rings.
16,608 sq. ft.
