Historic Mansion For 12 Million May Sell After Clinton Wedding

8/01/2010 02:33:00 PM ·

 The Historical Astor Courts Mansion, sitting on the market since last year, has become much more appealing since the big wedding during the weekend. Astor Mansion occupies over 50-acres on the Hudson River and served as the staging point for Clinton's wedding to Marc Mezvinsky over the weekend.

The Clinton Wedding was a godsend for owner Kathy Hammer and her husband, who now believe the mansion will fly off the market due to the media coverage and exposure from it.

Astor Courts has gone through 9 million dollars of renovation of the past three years, however due to the slumping market, Hammer lowered the price just recently. Real Estate brokers believe the home will fetch at least $10 million, possibly from a wedding guest.

If you don't know your history, Astor Courts Mansion was originally commissioned by John Jacob Astor IV in 1902. Astor, a founder of The Waldorf-Astoria hotel, died on the Titanic.

Sporting pavilion with guest bedrooms. It reportedly housed the first indoor American residential swimming pool, an indoor tennis court with designed by R. Guastavino and Company, an outdoor grass tennis court (currently just a lawn area), and two squash courts (where the present-day library is located). In addition, in the lower level there was a bowling alley and shooting range. ~AstorCourts.com
