Celebrity CEO's Hudson Valley Estate For Sale for $30 Million

HUDSON VALLEY, NY — New York City-based socialite, philanthropist, artist and Old Fashioned Mom CEO Michelle-Marie Heinemann has listed her 32,000-square-foot country estate at 1111 Route 376 in Wappingers Falls for $30 million.

Heinemann is known for her art work, paintings and vivacious lifestyle, and was twice courted to be a member of The Real Housewives of New York cast (turning down the opportunities due to family obligations).

She is currently exploring New York City storefront locations for her Old Fashioned Mom-brand coffee, and a Palm Beach location for an Old Fashioned Mom-brand boutique hotel.

She was just in England for the Royal Wedding celebrations. The estate is one of the crown jewels of the Hudson Valley.

Its 25.14 acres offer complete solitude while conveniently located on Route 376, which has been called the 5th Avenue of Country Living.

The colonial mansion includes nine bedrooms, eleven bathrooms, five half-baths, a solarium, two libraries, eight wood-burning fireplaces, two kitchens, a wine cellar, an ice rink, a home theatre, a three-story glass rotunda in private wing, multiple verandas, and an art gallery.

There is an 8,000 square foot veranda with panoramic views of the sculpture gardens. The mansion displays an eclectic mix of antiques, keepsakes and cherished artwork.

Also on the property is a 3-car garage above which sits an artist’s studio. The manicured property includes seven formal gardens, two swimming pools (indoor and outdoor) with pool cabana, a tennis court, a basketball court, three playgrounds and an English conservatory.

This residence evokes a spirit of comfort and an entertaining ambience at every turn. It’s a one-of-a-kind masterpiece awaiting that one client seeking grand and extraordinary.


Douglas Elliman’s Anthony Debellis (914-618-1737) is marketing the property.

The Leopard Lounge….located in the Chesterfield Hotel in Palm Beach at 363 Cocoanut Row, is really one of my favorite places to have dinner with the family. The food is fresh and delicious using the finest local and seasonal ingredients and the staff is extraordinarily attentive. There is live entertainment every night which my children especially enjoy that creates a lively and spirited mood. There is also a fabulous range of wine, spirits, cocktails and they have their own home made flavored vodkas. The pineapple martini is divine!

Set your taste buds alight in the Leopard’s Lair

The legendary and newly refurbished Leopard Lounge, one of Palm Beach’s best loved institutions, is the epitome of sleek sophistication. Jet black lacquered walls, window blinds, granite topped tables, leather banquette seating and chairs, are perfectly complemented by a leopard skin patterned carpet, beveled mirrors, punkah fans and the richly swirling white and red images of the decadent hand painted ceiling.

Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between, the menu features an eclectic mix of classic American, English, Oriental and International dishes prepared with flair and imagination by
Executive Chef Gerard Coughlin. Breakfast and lunch can also be enjoyed on the courtyard patio or by the pool.

Lunchtime favourites include their famous Aberdeen Angus Beef Burgers served with the fresh topping of your choice and a wire basket of crispy fries, their inspired Leopard Club Sandwich with avocado and hard-boiled egg, and Bea’s Chicken Noodle Soup – a velvety smooth bowl of delicious goodness created by the founder, Bea Tollman.

Signature dinner dishes include the Veal Chop and the 14oz boneless New York Strip, both cooked to perfection in a 900° wood burning Josper Grill. The searing heat produces a lightly charred outer layer that locks in all the natural juices and rich flavor to create an unforgettably appetizing taste experience. The South African Style Chicken Curry, prepared with a special mix of 10 exotic spices and served with fragrant jasmine rice, crispy poppadoms and tangy mango chutney, is equally popular.

Diners also love their signature Maryland Style Lump Crab Cakes. Made from genuine lump crab meat, lightly breaded then pan seared to a golden brown and drizzled with our Chili Lime Mayonnaise, they’re a delicious appetizer.

Bartenders are minor celebrities in their own right and every night they provide some of the finest live entertainment in all of Palm Beach – this is definitely the place to be seen, to dance the night away, or to just sit back and soak up the atmosphere.
