Rockefeller-Estate-p.10The Westchester residence of banker and philanthropist David Rockefeller, who died in March at the age of 101, is up for sale for $22 million.

Situated on 75 acres in Pocantico Hills, the three-story, 11,000-square-foot main residence, known as Hudson Pines, is surrounded by broad lawns, immaculate gardens, a round heated pool, an apple orchard, a private helipad and other amenities. Hudson Pines is adjacent to Rockefeller State Park.

“This is a home of unparalleled provenance, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own classic American architecture where a true American visionary once lived,” said David Turner, the Houlihan Lawrence listing agent.

“Much like his Manhattan townhouse, Mr. Rockefeller cherished his home in Pocantico Hills. The importance of this home in the context of his life is paramount,” said Anthony Cutugno, senior vice president of Houlihan Lawrence Private Brokerage.

The home was designed in 1938 by architect Mott B. Schmidt, who designed country estates for some of America’s most prominent families. David Rockefeller and his wife Peggy raised six children between their New York City townhouse and Hudson Pines throughout their 56-year marriage.

After his death, Rockefeller’s estate has begun selling off his various real estate holdings, as well as his private art collection, with the proceeds benefiting charities.
