Doyle will auction Property from Chateau Ridge, Greenwich, on Wednesday, February 24 at 10am. This landmark sale will showcase elegant furniture and decorations and fine art from Chateau Ridge, an historic chateau in Greenwich, Connecticut. Built in 1927 and originally named Ream Chateau, the elegant house was the setting for a royal visit during a 1967 tour of the Americas by King Umberto II of Italy.


In the 1980s, the chateau was reimagined by famed architect and designer Anthony Ingrao, and over a five-year period the house and gardens were transformed into a lavish venue for entertaining on a grand scale. He sourced Continental and English furnishings at auction and through prominent dealers in London, Rome, Florence and especially, Paris. 

Among the works of art in the collection are fine examples by Frank Henry Shapleigh, Henri-Joseph Harpignies, Georges d'Espagnat, Marie Lucie Nessi-Valtat and Pierre Prins.

The upcoming auction offers the rare opportunity to acquire furnishings, decorations and art assembled by Anthony Ingrao for one of his first important commissions -- Chateau Ridge in Greenwich, Connecticut. The offerings reflect Ingrao’s legendary reputation for quality, design and connoisseurship.

The public is invited to the exhibition on view Saturday, February 20 through Monday, February 22 from Noon-5pm. Doyle is located at 175 East 87th Street. View the catalogue and place bids at Doyle.com
