If you are hankering for a home fit for royalty, you are in luck. According to Curbed, Sotheby’s International Realty has recently listed the “White Castle,” an 11,000 square-foot home designed in 1972 by renowned American architect Richard Meier for a whopping $11.8 million.
Set in an area once considered a summer retreat for Vanderbilts, Woolworths and Guggenheims, the minimalist, all-white Bacon Road dwelling, inspired by Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, is set on five acres and includes six bedrooms, a tennis court, a pool, a pond and a skylit gallery hall featuring glass walls, making it perfect for “the serious art collector.”
Meier, who has a history of loving the color white and using it as his trademark, is known for his streamline creations, such as the Getty Museum. “The White Castle” is a perfect example of this design aesthetic and Curbed reports the designer had called white “the most wonderful color” in his Pritzker prize acceptance speech in 1984.
