9000: Upper Brookville, NY, 27 miles from NYC, FILM FRIENDLY, beautiful grounds,  in zone, manicured lawns, 20 ft ceilings & more....

Le Chateau des Thons had already been the setting of one of the great romances of 18th century French history. Built in 1640, near Dijon, it was home to famed French philosopher and writer Voltaire.  In 1926, Mr. Barney (of what is now Salomon, Smith, Barney) used his considerable clout to persuade the French authorities to permit him to buy the Chateau, which he then proceeded to dismantle then sent across the Atlantic by private steamship.On arrival, the Chateau was painstakingly reassembled on 7 lush acres in Upper Brookville, where its peaked fairytale roof, classical fountains, and soaring ivy-covered twin towers still stand in all their original splendor.
