High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - March 13, 1972, High Point, North Carolina Duke to sell chateau by Norman Moss London was dwindling finances advancing age and wifely pressure have spurred the Duke of Windsor to offer for Sale the country House outside Paris that he has turned into a replica of an English lords country Manor. It will be a heavy blow to the Duke who transformed the House and its gardens with Loving care. The asking Price for the Moulin de la Tui Lerie is a secret but the Duke turned Down an offer of Over a million dollars three years ago. However he is More anxious to sell now than he was then. The windsors will keep their town House in Paris. When they bought the Moulin at if sur Yvette 16 Miles outside the City in 1952. This was a recognition by the Duke that he would not be Able to return to live in England but would remain an exile. He had hoped that after his wartime service As governor of the Bahamas he would be offered another Post by the British government and that the rift with the rest of the Royal family caused by his abdication would be healed. Like any English Nobleman the Duke is a country Squire by instinct despite his earlier reputation As a Man about town. The Home he really loved in England was his country Home. Fort Belvedere. The Moulin de Lai Tui Lerie was an eighteenth Century French Mill which had been made into a luxurious House. The Duke imposed his own style of furnishing and turned the six acres of grounds into a Garden with a Stream meandering gently Between Meadows bordered by colourful Flower Beds. He had a staff of gardeners but he was often out there himself with trowel and pruning shears. He restored the old farmhands cottages into guest houses for weekend guests. Now the driveway is lit by a London Street lamp. And beneath it is a sign that says a Small dogs. Please drive the dogs Are the Dukes Small pugs another of the trappings of the English country gentleman. A Well travelled american who has been a weekend guest there says a ttys remarkably like being a guest at a wealthy country Home in England. All the Way from the Bacon and eggs breakfast to the Choice of Riding or shooting to the port after dinner when the ladies have retired to the drawing room. Its a Surprise when the Butler Speaks but the Price of living like a lord in France has shot up in the past 20 years. Though the Duke is wealthy by a commoners standards and maintains an expensive life style when he travels he does no to have unlimited resources to draw on.
