Severn, Estate of the Day
Today's estate, Severn, in Lattingtown, New York, is being marketed as the summer retreat of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The former king of England and his bride Wallis Simpson, spent the summer in the French Normandy-style estate in 1948. The home was built in 1935 and sits on four acres. The grounds include gardens, a cobblestone driveway and a four-car garage with a guest apartment. The home looks to have been extensively remodeled since the Windsor days including a new modern kitchen with an island. It is listed for $5.995 million with Daniel Gale Sotheby's.
