An estate owned by David Rockefeller that sold for $33 million in February 2018 was the largest residential sale of the year in Rockland and Westchester counties, LoHud reported. The Pocantico Hills property, which includes an 11-bedroom mansion, as well as a three-bedroom guest house, a stable and a carriage house, sold for 50 percent more than its asking price of $22 million. “This is a vindication of the provenance of David Rockefeller,” said Houlihan Lawrence associate real estate broker David Turner, who handled the listing for the late banker and philanthropist. Turner told the outlet that “it’s just rare that a parcel of this size, scope and integrity is available at all.” The 75-acre property hit the market several months after Rockefeller died at 101. An Upper East Side mansion also owned by Rockefeller took a price cut last year when it was sold for $20 million to Doug Band, a longtime aide and adviser to President Bill Clinton. [LoHud]
