A Refined French Interior

A Refined French Interior
Today, the estate, reachable by car or a short train ride from the center of Paris, is known as the “Bronze Horse Stable,” named for a regal statue that stands at the entrance—a memento of former owner, philanthropist Frank Jay Gould’s champion racehorse. Philippe, a horse trainer and dressage instructor, runs the stables, and Sophie opens two cottages on the property twice yearly for antiques sales, as she has since 1996. The cottages are scenically set amid house and garden, barns, riding ring, fields, and woods. Attendance is by invitation and also via announcements posted at Sophie’s nearby antiques shop, Au Temps des Cerises, which is open year-round.
