Inside David Rockefeller's $19-Million Maine Estate
After philanthropist David Rockefeller died in March, his heirs put his Upper East Side townhouse up for sale. Now Ringing Point, his 14.5-acre estate on Mount Desert Island in Maine, is on the market, too. The Knowles Company is offering the property, which includes the main house, Rockefeller's study, and a guesthouse, for $19 million. Scroll down for a look around.
Ringing Point is located in the town of Seal Harbor, Maine, on Mount Desert Island.
