FASHION HOUSE YSL's $17M French Fantasy Farm
French fashion icon Yves St. Laurent and his business partner Pierre Berge have foisted their fantasy farm in rural Deauville onto the market for $17.8 million. The 52-acre property includes a nine-bedroom Napoleon-III era house with Monet-esque murals and more chandeliers and bear skin rugs than an impeccably dressed queen can shake a stick at.
The estate grounds include highfalutin amenities like kennels for the hounds, a helicopter pad for quick commutes to gay Paris, a guest apartment, staff quarters, views of the English Channel, and a topiary chess board.
The aging fashionistas also recently unloaded their $7.5 million pied-à-terre at the uber posh Pierre Hotel in Manhattan.
