The selling of the late David Rockefeller’s properties continues with his storied property in Westchester County, recently sold for $11 million over its asking price for total of $33 million.

Owned by Rockefeller, the former chairman and CEO of Chase Manhattan Corporation, the 11,343-square-foot home and its accompanying grounds went on the market last fall for a price of $22 million, months after Rockefeller’s death last March at the age of 101, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The home’s history, which dates back to 1938, and the Rockefeller name attracted the interest of multiple parties, according to Houlihan Lawrence Private Brokerage’s David Turner, who handled the listing for the estate. The buyer was not disclosed.

The property, which Rockefeller lived at until his death, includes the main 11-bedroom mansion along with a three-bedroom guest house, a stable and carriage house, an outdoor pool, helipad and greenhouses. In total there are 12 structures on the property.

Last month, Rockefeller’s estate sold his Upper East Side mansion after nine months on market at a reduced price of $27 million. [WSJ]Erin Hudson
