The Mediterranean-style home of former Secretary of State Alexander Haig is for sale in Palm Beach. General Haig, who died in 2010, was also a former NATO supreme commander, United States Army general under President Reagan and served as White House Chief of Staff under Presidents Nixon and Ford.

The mansion is surrounded by mature banyan trees and sits on roughly half an acre of land that was once owned by Gilded Era entrepreneur Henry Phipps Jr. Listed for $9.975 million by Kim Raich of Sotheby’s International Realty, the Haig family bought the property in Phipps Estates for $11.75 million in 2008. 

Luxurious features include:
 
  • Lovely loggias and lushly landscaped gardens that overlook the pool.
  • An elegant wood-paneled library fit for a general. 
  • Huge dining room with seating for 20. 
  • A spacious family room with a pub-style bar and wine cellar.
