Maison DuJour: La Vermondie in Dordogne

27 October 2013

Dating back to the 12th century, this incredible estate is the embodiment of Europe’s rich and diverse heritage.

Today, all four levels of the chateau are far more inviting, with lavish entertaining space including two sublime salons with dramatic windows, stone fireplaces and oak flooring; two dining rooms; a great hall; and a vestry.

The entire 9,690 sq ft interior has been exquistely restored to designs by a prestigous French architect and includes five spacious bedrooms and four full baths. Further lodgings are provided by a guesthouse, two guest apartments and a large atelier. Surrounded by 125 acres of private woods, orchards and meadows, this romantic retreat also boasts a beautiful lake for secluded swimming and boating. Continue reading to view additional images.

Paul Mellon, heir to one of America’s great banking fortunes, and his wife, Bunny Mellon, built this extraordinarily beautiful 40’ wide townhouse on a fabled Upper East Side block in 1965.

Paul Mellon curated his art collection in the library overlooking the exquisite garden with reflecting pool and gazebo, where Bunny Mellon, designer of the White House Rose Garden and friend to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, indulged her love of gardening. The high-ceilinged drawing room and dining room lead to a spectacular terrace, the center of celebratory parties. The townhouse has 5-8 bedrooms, with flexibility for guests, and staff, eight baths, chef’s kitchen, wine room and elevator.
