The Leslie Ridley-Tree Estate

The former Birnam Wood home of uber philanthropist Leslie Ridley-Tree, who died in October at the age of 98, has hit the market for $7.95 million.

The 4,900-square-foot, single-story home on 1.06 acres, which I last visited for Leslie’s Christmas party, is just a tiara’s toss from the tony enclave’s clubhouse.

Her extensive 700-piece wardrobe, including top labels such as Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Christian Lacroix, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, and Gucci, is also coming up for auction, organized by the Moving Miss Daisy’s Consignment and Auction House at La Cumbre Plaza.

I confidently predict Leslie’s considerable collection of Hermès silk scarves, a favorite of the late Queen Elizabeth, will fly off the auction block.
