What is now considered a quiet, idyllic grand estate overlooking the rolling hills of the Westchester Country Club in Rye, New York was once a hot-bed of post-war era soirées with guests drinking martinis in the library of a stately stone and pillar colonial revival owned by renowned “renaissance man,” Arthur Judson.

Judson, who passed away in the 1970s and predeceased his wife by almost 20 years, was a founder of CBS with William S. Paley. He also spent much of his career as an artist’s manager, simultaneously managing both the New York Philharmonic and Philadelphia Orchestra. Additionally, Judson co-founded the Handel Society of New York and participated in a several philanthropic endeavors.

The Judson estate features a treasure trove of period furniture and desirable collections including: a large collection of Schmieg Kotzian furniture (long considered the ‘creme de la creme’ of custom furniture), a super cool vintage Ficks Reed bamboo sunroom suite, a large and fine pair of Dore bronze crystal mounted wall sconces, and a couple of Joseph Hirsh (American, 1910-1981) original pieces of fine art, just to name several of the over three-hundred amazing pieces acquired in the residence. Books and a variety of curiosities round out the entire collection.

Happy bidding!
