With the upheaval of 2020, the real-estate market is on everybody’s minds in the tri-state area. Now, the luxurious home of late women’s footwear king Vince Camuto is on the market.
Born in New York City, Camuto dwelled in his mansion in scenic Greenwich, Connecticut since 1984. After passing in 2015 following a battle with cancer, the house—known as Chateau Ridge—fell to his widow, Louise.
Starting August 12th, 2020, Mrs. Camuto is putting Chateau Ridge on the market, available for no reserve. Even its marvelous furnishings are available to the highest bidder.
Originally built in 1927, Chateau Ridge is an incredible monument to Old World architecture. With its hand-carved walls and elaborate ceilings, the estate blends the classic and romantic with the modern and chic—very like Camuto’s work.
With a hand-painted ceiling depicting the stars the night Vince Camuto was born, Chateau Ridge achieves a breathtaking balance between grandeur and intimacy. The home also boasts 13 bedrooms, 18 baths, and some furniture dating all the way back to the 16th century.
If contemporary is more your style, many of the home’s bedroom suites and entertaining spaces bring a 21st-century twist to this American palace. And with over 4 acres of impeccably-landscaped grounds, the exterior makes for gorgeous views and soothing twilight strolls.
