Tour Huguette Clark's empty mansions
Huguette Clark owned not one but three homes that she was not using.
In California, on the coast in Santa Barbara, was the Clark summer estate, known as Bellosguardo, or "beautiful lookout." The 21,666-square-foot French villa had been built in 1933 by her mother, Anna LaChapelle Clark, on on twenty-three acres overlooking the Pacific and Santa Barbara's East Beach.
In New York, she owned three apartments by Central Park, a floor and a half in the classic building at 907 Fifth Avenue, a total of 15,000 square feet.
And in Connecticut, in the affluent town of New Canaan, there was her refuge never used, Le Beau Château, with a 14,266-square-foot house on fifty-two wooded acres.
Also, in Butte, Montana, still open to the public is her father's first great house, known as the Copper King Mansion.
