    It's been nine months in the making, but we at Houlihan Lawrence have done our due diligence in scanning our Luxury Country Properties inventory for a home fit for a future king (just in case he ever decides to relocate the throne to our area.) While the world waited on baited breathe for the birth of William and Kate's firstborn son, we selected five "palaces" that are a perfect fit for the little prince.

    Lionwalk: Providing an air of Old World grandeur the royals are accustomed to, the luxurious Lionwalk sits on 13+ acres rural regality. Set within Bedford's estate area, the renovated Colonial exudes sophistication through the inclusion of a 6-bay equipment barn and fine equestrian facilities -- perfect for a potential polo pro!

    Northshire: This true Georgian country house captures the spirit of the English countryside, with the name to match. Enhanced by a 5-year renovation, Northshire is encompassed by 26 acres of peace and privacy -- a reprieve from any pesky paparazzo.

    Sky Blue Farm: An ideal country escape with many opportunities for royal fun, including a pool, tennis court, skating rink, motocross track, sporting range and equestrian facilities, Sky Blue Farm was recently named by The Financial Times as one of the best places around the world to enjoy the hunt.

    Apawamis Club: 4 Sunset Lane offers unparalleled access to Apawamis Club Treasure, which is set on 2.44 acres overlooking the course's 17th and 18th holes. The king-to-be will be just steps away from one of Westchester's most notable golf clubs, making him a shoe-in for a future Open title.

    The Hall Christy House: Not as old as the Royal Palace, The Hall Christy House is still rich in history with its construction dating back as early as 1747.  As one of the area's earliest Colonial homes, this Pawling treasure underwent a masterful renovation with original paneling, oak floors, aged beams, Dutch tiles, original Hudson Valley paint, original hardware and vintage window glass still in tact.
