Clinton Wedding at Astor Courts Eye Candy To Sell High End Real Estate?

The site of the Clinton-Medzvinsky wedding was the ‘perfect’ white house for the young woman who once called 1600 Pennsylvania Ave her home.

And now YOU may have the opportunity to call Astor Courts in Rhinebeck, New York your very own home.

The estate originally built for John Jacob Astor IV was listed for sale last year and then reportedly taken off the market shortly before the Clinton nuptials.

The home had been on the market for some time, following an extensive renovation which restored its grandeur and added the amenities we’ve all become accustomed to.

Updates include a magnificent 2000 sq ft+ Master Suite in the east wing of the home.  Sprawled on 50 acres over the Hudson, a letter of patent from the state of New York grants the owners access to the Hudson River in perpetuity.

Owner Kathleen Hammer has done an outstanding job overseeing the restoration of the Stanford White designed mansion and in 2008, sat down with the NY Times.

Following the wedding festivities this weekend, the Hudson Valley News had this to say:

Hudson Valley News- Well, that didn’t take long – Kathy Hammer, owner of Astor Courts (site for Chelsea Clinton’s wedding last night) took out a full page ad on page 2 of Sunday’s New York Post offering the estate for sale. Hammer spent a lot of time saying she was not going to sell the property after withdrawing the estate from the market on July 8. More info to come in this week’s edition on stands Wednesday.  – Hudson Valley News

The wonderful architectural elements of Astor Courts are just stunning, including the elegant terrace overlooking the Hudson where Clinton wedding guests partied into the wee hours!  Wellesley College grad and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright reportedly was the ‘last guest standing’ on the dance floor!
