Black Couple Sells 236-Acre Farm To Luxury Hotel Brand in $13.75M Off-Market Deal

Black Enterprise reports that a luxury hotel brand may soon acquire what a black family once owned. According to reports, black business owners Chid Liberty and Georgie Badiel Liberty successfully off-market traded their sizable upland property in Rhinebeck, New York, on Friday.

One of the most opulent hotel brands in the world, Six Senses, reportedly paid $13.75 million for the 236-acre biodynamic farm, according to the New York Post. In order to use the farm as a family retreat, Chid, the co-founder and CEO of the fair-trade clothing firm Liberty & Justice and the Made in Africa label,

and his wife, a model, activist, and philanthropist, paid a friend $8.5 million for the property last year. The plan was to use the property as our primary residence and have retreats there for impact organizations, according to Chid, a Liberian-born man.

We held our own retreat with yoga, hikes, and horses in addition to hosting other retreats for Equity Alliance and Unreasonable Impact. We cherished it. However, according to reports, the land will be converted into a resort as part of new plans for the property under the Six Senses brand.

Six Senses is unable to respond because no Hudson Valley projects have been announced, a spokesman told the Post. The farm, which was constructed using traditional Hudson Valley architecture, received numerous inquiries from potential purchasers despite not being put on the market.

The property, which spans hundreds of acres and includes a 7,200-square-foot barn, is anchored by a stone house with eight fireplaces, two bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and an artist’s studio that was built in 1768. The surrounding area is picturesque.

The Libertys are currently living in Williamsburg, taking trips around the world, and pursuing new business opportunities, including as working with Target to produce a Made in Africa swim line. Additionally,

Georgie’s charity, the Georgie Mandiel Foundation, has raised $1 million in support of her goal to provide Burkina Faso with access to clean water and sanitary facilities.
