Andrew Carnegie’s daughter’s lavish estate, Migdale Castle, set for auction


Migdale Castle, the stunning Hudson Valley mansion once home to Margaret “Midge” Carnegie, daughter of steel-baron Andrew Carnegie, is set to be auctioned by Concierge Auctions with no reserve.

Built in 1927, the estate was a play on Margaret’s name and became her home after her divorce from Roswell Miller in 1953. Despite Andrew Carnegie giving away most of his fortune, Margaret’s life as his daughter, her $15 million inheritance, and her role as a trustee of the Carnegie Foundation afforded her a lavish lifestyle.

The classic British-designed mansion features a stunning ivy-covered stone facade, soaring exposed-beam ceilings, stone floors, elegant fireplaces, big windows, and wooden banisters. The gorgeous kitchen boasts blonde hardwood cabinets and a massive center island, while an indoor pool and hot tub offer the ultimate in luxury.

Spanning approximately 34,000 square feet, the estate includes ten bedrooms, a plush home theater, and a 5,000-bottle wine cellar. Renovated in 2000, the property retains its classic beauty while incorporating modern conveniences and appliances.

Over 50 acres of lush grounds surround the mansion, offering tennis courts, a cabana, a playground, and multiple ponds. The winning bidder will have the opportunity to purchase an additional 150 acres with walking trails, fields, orchards, and an organic garden with a greenhouse.

Located in Millbrook, a small but affluent village about 90 miles north of New York City, the estate is situated in a haven for celebrities, with neighbors including Faith Hill, Liam Neeson, Jessica Lange, and Rufus Wainwright.

Previously listed for $14 million, Migdale Castle will be auctioned by Concierge Auctions, with bidding set to close on May 30th.
