When David Rockefeller died in March at the age of 101, he left behind a wealth of real estate, belongings and art. All have been gradually finding their way to the market over the past six months, or to their custodians, like the collection of 150,000 dead beetles that were bequeathed to the Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology.
The latest is Hudson Pines, Rockefeller’s Westchester, New York, estate—and the current home of that expansive beetle collection—which was listed last week for $22 million.
The 75-acre manor has been in the Rockefeller family since its construction in 1938, when it was designed and built by Mott Schmidt for Rockefeller’s sister, Abby. Rockefeller and his wife Peggy bought the house in 1946, according to the house’s listing with Houlihan Lawrence, and at the time of his death he had been the home’s owner for more than 70 years.
The listing agents, David Turner and Anthony Cutugno, did not respond to requests for comment in time for publication.
Spanning 11,343 square feet, the house has 11 bedrooms, a wine vault, hobby rooms, specimen gardens, a heated pool, a large carriage house, a six-stall barn, three greenhouses, an apple orchard, and a helipad.

In June, Rockefeller’s 40-foot-wide redbrick and terracotta mansion on East 65th Street hit the market asking $32.5 million. Then, in July, his wooded 14.5-acre property on Mount Desert Island, Maine, hit the market for $19 million. His extensive art collection, including modern pieces, Chinese porcelain and European furniture, will hit the auction block with Christie’s next year in New York.
Rockefeller was the grandson of oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller Sr., and was a banker and philanthropist, as well as the heir to one of the U.S.’s greatest fortunes.
