The house, originally built in 1930 by architect, philanthropist, author and political reformer, Alden Freeman, was designed after the oldest house in the Western hemisphere -- the “Alcázar de Colon” in the Dominican Republic.
When Freeman died, a man named Jacques Amsterdam bought the house in 1937 and named it “The Amsterdam Palace.”
The 19,000-square-foot property features 10 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a 54-foot mosaic-tiled pool, ornate statues, arched doorways, and a blissful courtyard.
