HOUSE OF THE DAY: The Estate Where Chelsea Clinton Is Marrying Hedge Funder Marc Mezvinsky

John Jacob Astor House

The gorgeous estate where Chelsea Clinton and G3 Capital’s Marc Mezvinsky, a former Goldmanite, are getting married this weekend comes from an interesting past.

The Stanford White-designed estate in Rhinebeck, New York was once owned by John Jacob Astor IV, who went down with the Titanic.

Stanford White’s great-grandson Sam White has since fully restored the place. 

In January, the estate was being offered at an asking price of $12 million.

Design architect Laura Dunn says, “The architecture screams playhouse for country club types.  With all its grandeur wrapped in a facade inspired by the Grand Trianon at Versailles.”

Indoor clay court

Plenty of room for lobs. Don't hit crazy cross-courts, though (unless there's an ambulance nearby).

Or is that a river?

Whatever. You don't need to know.
