    Built for Howard Phipps, youngest son of Henry Phipps, Jr. who made his fortune at Carnegie Steel, this approximately 90-acre-plus property, in the heart of Old Westbury, offers you the rare opportunity to own a “Gold Coast” estate still owned and lived in by the original family who built it nearly a century ago. Kept in glorious, pristine condition throughout, the fifteen-bedroom, twelve-bath mansion is like a time capsule or, perhaps, a time machine, transporting you back to a time known on Long Island’s North Shore as the “Golden Age.” From its creation in the 1930’s until today, every part of the estate’s magnificent grounds and mansion have created a sense of timeless beauty and a reverence for the wonders of nature and the importance of family. Just about everything in its interior appears to be in like-new condition, and much is original to the mansion, from its commercial-sized stainless-steel kitchen to its four-person elevator, spacious baths and bedrooms, and its many fireplaces. One of the several large estates owned in Old Westbury by the Phipps Family, Erchless was built in 1935. Designed by Adams and Prentice, this brick Colonial Revival style mansion offers a plantation-style, U-shaped layout enfolding a large central courtyard, as if welcoming guests with outstretched arms. Stately and serene, it exhibits exquisite artistry in its detailing throughout and an impressive architectural-practicality underpinning the home’s grandeur. An example is the feature of soaring, arched windows in two sunrooms that lower into the basement on elevator motors to turn the spaces into summertime porches. Spacious guest rooms with en suite baths, sitting areas, and gorgeous fireplaces, plus large public rooms with towering ceilings, even grander fireplaces and stunning millwork provide a most hospitable venue for gracious and extensive entertaining. Sweeping views from the mansion extend beyond the sprawling meadows to an alle of 80-foot-high beech trees beyond which a well-cared for farm and collection of stables, out buildings and staff housing are discreetly situated, making the estate virtually self-sufficient. Perhaps the most impressive feature of this magnificent estate are its enchanting, and seemingly endless array of gardens and specimen trees. For over 60 years, award-winning varieties of Rhododendrons have been bred here. Today, this botanical paradise is considered the finest rhododendron garden in the North East. LOCATION: According to Forbes and Newsweek magazines, Old Westbury is consistently ranked as one of the wealthiest suburbs in the country, an enclave that for more than two centuries the elite have built their grand residences. Conveniently located at the southern edge of what is known as Long Island’s “Gold Coast,” Old Westbury lies just a little over a half-hour commute to Manhattan via train or Northern Parkway and Long Island Expressway. Its 8.6 square miles of rolling wooded hills create a sense of country and an ideal place to tuck away secluded estates ranging from two acres to hundreds of acres. Long known as an equestrian’s paradise, it possesses miles of public riding trails, a horse farm, and polo grounds. 4,200 residents and approximately 1000 families comprise its population. There is no business center to the village, but residents are only a few minutes from outstanding shopping, dining, boating, cultural venues, and award-winning hospitals. It is home to three institutions of higher learning and two country-club golf courses. Conveniently located between Long Island Expressway and the Northern Parkway in the very heart of Nassau County, “Erchless” provides easy access to Manhattan, both air ports, and the appealing north and south shores, including the popular Jones Beach. Leading from Long Island Sound to the Atlantic one can experience the endless enjoyment of the East End’s coveted northern wine country and South Fork’s summer destinations in the Hamptons. The estate’s 90-plus acres lie between Post Road and Hitchcock Lane with dual entrances on each road. Just across Post Road is the estate museum, Old Westbury Gardens, the former “Westbury” estate of John Shaffer Phipps, elder brother of Howard Phipps, one of several estates members of the Phipps family owned nearby. To the south of “Erchless,” is Westbury High School, built on land that was a gift from Howard Phipps. PROPERTY: Entered through iron gates at the north end of the estate, the main house stands majestically on a gentle hill overlooking a vast field partially partitioned into pastures edged with stained rail fencing. From the rear, graceful curved steps descend to a magnificent swimming pool carved from the emerald lawn. Through a grove of trees, a stunning garden leads to two pagodas, behind a mesmerizing koi fountain, that serve as bath houses for swimmers. To the west of the main house, a tennis court offers a delightful spot to enjoy a match beneath a shady canopy of grand beech tree. To the east of the mansion, past a stand of towering pine trees, is a wonder to behold: paths and manicured lawns wend among acres and acres of breathtaking gardens nurturing seemingly endless varieties of horticultural splendor in a blazing panoply of color and variety. An allée of graceful trees invite you on a journey of discovery while teak benches and chairs placed here and there, and ancient statuary from the old world, invite you to stop and enjoy the serenity and beauty of the moment. The garden puts on a new dress for every season but saves its finest for spring when myriads of rhododendron blossoms appear. The estate’s original owner, Howard Phipps, Sr., had a great love for all that grows, but his passion was Rhododendrons in their many forms and colors, and he is responsible for many hybrid varieties still available today commercially. His son’s wife, Mary Phipps, also loved the garden and continued the rhododendron breeding and won many awards for her rhododendrons. She transformed the grounds into a magnificent arboretum and botanical garden that is masterfully maintained and improved to this day. Two greenhouses and a nursery on the property were built solely for rhododendron hybridization. For the past 15 years, the gardens have been maintained through organic methods such as composting and no pesticides or other harmful chemicals. Far to the south of the main residence, behind a wall of trees, the green houses are joined by a charming group of well-kept farm buildings that include: a 12-stall horse stable; a two-story, three-door tractor barn; a hay barn; a five-car heated garage; a chicken house; a carriage house with four stalls and an unfinished second-floor apartment; a rented five-bedroom, two-bath farm house with office, finished basement, and large wraparound porch; a manager’s house with five bedrooms, three baths, walk-in attic; a chauffeurs cottage on Hitchcock Lane with three-bedrooms, two baths, a screened porch, and detached two-car garage; and a small renovated laundry house, now a stand-alone studio apartment. The main greenhouse was renovated two years ago for high fuel efficiency by replacing all the glass and the heating system. The second heated greenhouse is also heated. There is also an unheated over-wintering house, concrete cold frames, a large compost area, a nursery, vegetable and fruit garden, a scenic duck pond, and lovely landscaping throughout. Some paved and some unpaved roads provide access to all areas and buildings on the property. RESIDENCE: Erchless is a tribute to the man who built it. Its interior offers spacious, sun-drenched rooms each possessing intricate detailing and unrivaled craftmanship from the intricately hand-carved fireplace mantels and overmantels and stunning inlaid stone and wood floors, to the exquisitely carved moldings around ceilings, doors, and windows. Though Georgian style runs throughout the house, there is a subtle weaving of Art Deco in amongst the classic detailing, which cleverly brings the floral beauty of the gardens outside into the house. The grand foyer that flows from the front entrance vestibule through to a rear entrance, offers classic styling in its harlequin marble floors, entry doors with leaded side and fanlights, and a graceful floating circular staircase in an alcove with starburst marble floor. But Art Deco elements are seen in the airy crown molding and blown glass chandeliers. Through an archway, a barrel-ceiling gallery, with office and elevator, features similar chandeliers plus an Art Deco, fan-shaped cornice above the entrance to the grand salon. This sunny, ballroom-sized living room creates an inviting setting for entertaining many guests. Its many elaborate moldings and carvings that marry delicate and massive elements together, adds to the room’s incredible charm, as do the tall windows looking out on a serene formal garden. Off the rear of the foyer is the ideal place for intimate gatherings on cold winter nights. The oak fielded-panel library, with its massive hand-carved shell-and-leaf crown molding and parquet floors, will enfold you with a warm and comfortable ambiance. The spectacular marble fireplace is a stunning piece of art with a detailed hand-carved three-dimensional wood garland draped above a custom carved oak mantel. A hidden door leads to the gallery, and a double door opens to the sunroom, a perfect spot to enjoy the surrounding gardens no matter the season. Boasting a vaulted Art Deco ceiling and chandelier, inlaid marble floors, a lovely hand-carved marble fireplace, it boasts two walls of huge floor-length windows, with fanlights, that disappear into the floor to convert the space into a delightful porch. A door leads to the grand salon. Off the east side of the foyer, the formal dining room presents an elegant setting for fine dining, featuring a gorgeous marble fireplace and custom carved marble mantel. The combination of the two design styles previously mentioned are especially beautiful in this room as seen in the massive crown molding and window pilasters and entablatures. Doors access the butler’s pantry and the morning room. This fanciful sunroom is Art Deco all the way, from its oval ceiling and delicate chandelier to its flower-designed inlaid floors. It also has windows like the sunroom that lower into the floor plus French doors that open to the garden. It opens to the butler’s pantry that offers extensive cabinetry, a double-sink, warming oven, refrigerator, and dumb waiter that accesses the basement and second floor. The adjoining kitchen is ideal for servicing large dinners and events with stainless-steel counters and sinks beneath a wall of windows; a professional Viking gas range with two ovens, griddle and six burners; extensive cabinetry; a center island table; a large silver/liquor safe; and an impressive five-door built-in refrigerator with compartments that descend to the basement for ease in stocking. A hallway, with mudroom and side entrance to the service parking courtyard, leads to a staff dining room and lounge that includes additional cabinetry, sink, and access to the housekeeper’s apartment. This two-bedroom, two-bath unit has a living room and outside entrance. A hall off the foyer, provides access to the backstairs and to the service wing, including a flower-arranging room with sink, a supply room, the laundry room, and a side exit. The second floor offers a spacious and sunny foyer with sitting area and elegant moldings. Doric columns frame entry to a wide hallway accessing the bedrooms, the elevator, and closets. The master suite is actually two suites in one. A spacious and sun-swept master bedroom with many windows, a fireplace, magnificent crown molding, and ample sitting and desk area, accesses a dressing room, and large bath with tub and separate shower. The adjoining master bedroom, features stunning fielded paneling, exquisite carved moldings and pediments, and a private bath with tub and separate shower. Five additional large bedroom suites are beautifully appointed, each with sunny windows, its own unique fireplace, spacious sitting area, and en suite bath. One of them features a barrel ceiling. A sixth bedroom is off a hall with a bath, which is also accessed from an office/bedroom with bath en suite. A laundry/utility room is at the end of the hall. Stairs access a third-floor play room with dormer windows. The service wing has an office, dumb waiter, back stairs, various staff accommodations, and a flower-arranging room with sink, storage area, and stairs to an unfinished attic. The basement provides ample storage, a laundry room, a workshop, a utility room, and outside entrances. “Erchless” is an estate of exceptional proportions and exquisite design that radiates a spirit of congeniality, refinement, and a love for family - a haven from the world where one can find serenity and beauty no matter the season. Perhaps it will follow the fate of the other Phipps estates as property for development in Old Westbury becomes increasingly dear, but for now, it offers an amazing opportunity for those who love tradition, space to breathe, an incredible location, and wise investment for the future to make it their own.

    Tucked away on five magnificent acres in the North Shore village of Upper Brookville, a mystical and, perhaps, even magical estate welcomes all with a warm and charming presence. Built at the end of the Twentieth Century but looking like it was built at the beginning of that century, it presents a conundrum. What is its architectural style? Its rustic character evokes a love of nature. Is it patterned after an Adirondack “grand camp”? How about a Handsel and Gretel house in the middle of its own enchanted wooded playground? Was it found in the pages of J.R. R. Tolkein book? No. The answer is in the name of the architectural firm that designed and custom built it. Ike Kligerman Barlkey are well known for their amazing ability to combine pieces of varying architectural styles into stunning eclectic masterpieces. Such is this amazing home. It is exquisitely crafted and designed with the finest of materials and craftmanship to provide luxury and a casual elegance ideal for “Gold Coast” living. Featured in the May, 2000, issue of “Architectural Digest”, one of its creators described it as a marriage of American Shingle style and English Arts and Crafts. Its floor plan encompasses a unique and open feeling with public rooms in the west wing and service and leisure rooms in the east wing. Each wing has its own spectacular staircase; the east accesses all three floors; the west accesses only the second floor that houses five generous bedroom-bath suites. The ultimate retreat and entertainer’s delight, the property includes ample parking, an attached four-car garage, and an oversized pool with expansive brick patios and a delightful pool house. LOCATION: Upper Brookville has long been a popular location for leaders of industry and finance to build their grand estates. Its beautiful, wooded countryside is dotted with gorgeous properties. Approximately 1700 residents enjoy an ideal location convenient to boating, golf, equestrian facilities, quaint village shopping, museums, and the Long Island Railroad putting them within approximately a 40-minute commute to Manhattan. PROPERTY: Off a quiet cul-de-sac drive, a long winding circular driveway leads past neatly-manicured lawns that wrap around an abundance of towering pines and oaks - like a carpeted forest. As you enter the charming circular courtyard, brick and shingle wings of the manor reach out like a friend extending arms to welcome you. A steep, slightly curved, gabled roof with painstakingly-crafted, undulating drunken-shingle rows matching the red brick-and-shingle walls, makes the size of the mansion seem intimate and appealing like a high-class cottage. Off the West wing, an arched entry in a wall concealing a formal garden, leads you along a fish-scale-shingled veranda with a barrel ceiling, to the home’s delightful custom stained-glass entry. In the east wing, a porta cochere flanked by brick buttresses provides easy passage to the service courtyard and a four-car attached garage. From here, guests can go directly to a delightful outdoor entertainment area. Off the family room, a brick fire pit offers a perfect spot for evening conversation. From here, semicircular steps descend to an oversized inground, heated, Gunite pool with expansive brick surround. At the far end, an enchanting cottage-like pool house resembling the main house offers a party room, kitchen, one full and one half bath, and a guest dressing room, a laundry room, and a full basement. FIRST FLOOR: Welcoming guests through an arched door with delicate floral stained-glass inset, the entrance foyer is a work of art from its inlaid two-tone floor radiating from a center medallion to the unique and impressive staircase with basket-weave fielded-panel walls and wide stairs diminishing in width as they ascend from landing to landing. To the front, next to a guest closet and powder room, the warm and inviting library/billiard room features fielded paneling, custom cabinetry, a stunning fireplace, coffered ceiling, and huge bay window. Ideal for entertaining from large to intimate parties, an open floor plan features blond herringbone hardwood floors flowing throughout a generous dining room and gallery leading to the service wing and separated only by a row of honey-stained pillars supporting a see-through basket-weave frieze. This allows for expanding entertainment space when needed and flooding both areas with sunlight through front and rear walls of French doors. Across a second gallery leading to an expansive rear patio, ideal for al fresco dining, steps lead down into the delightful living room accented by a striking marble and mosaic tile fireplace, herringbone hardwood floors, and a large box-bay window. Terra cotta floors flow throughout the service area, which includes a spectacular three-story oak spiral staircase, closets, mudroom, powder room, butler’s pantry, and eat-in kitchen. This remarkable cook’s haven features custom natural oak cabinetry, Kirkstone countertop, farm sink, and large center island with seating area and a second farm sink. High-end appliances include a professional-grade Viking gas six-burner range with two ovens, a Viking wall double oven, microwave, dishwasher, and an integrated, full-size refrigerator with matching freezer. Above the sink, Arts-and-Craft stained-glass pocket windows slide open to reveal views through the family room’s French doors to the pool area. Accessed from kitchen and service hall, this comfortable and spacious getaway offers both a unique corner fireplace with decorative tiles and a custom-built-in cabinet for a large panel television. Open to the kitchen, the breakfast room provides a perfect place to start your day, enjoying sunny views of the property through three walls of windows and doors opening to the rear patio. At the top of the main staircase, a foyer with sitting area separates the west wing master suite and den/guest suite (with beautifully concealed Murphy bed and charming fireplace) with the east wing accessed through a long, windowed hallway with built-in bookcases and upholstered window seats. Past the second staircase in the east wing are the remaining three generous bedrooms, each with bath en suite and walk-in closet. With an abundance of charm and comfort, the master suite boasts a breathtaking and romantic English bedroom with tray ceiling, window seat, decorative-tile fireplace, built-in glass-and-mirror display niches, and soaring Palladian-style window and French doors opening to a private porch. The charming English theme continues in the bright and cheery bath featuring an oval tub, two marble-topped vanities and cabinetry in the main area, and two water closets flanking separate entrances to a waterfall shower. This area leads to an immense dressing room with exquisite built-in cabinets, dressers, cubbies, and closets. The full, finished basement offers ample room for recreation, workshops, laundry, and storage. It includes an inviting media/game room, two full baths, a mirrored gym, wine room, two mechanical rooms and ample storage.

Here, a touch of modern sophistication enhance its classic detailing with transitional touches throughout. In the two-story entrance foyer, sunlight enters through a Palladian transom with diamond-pane sidelights. Custom cut herringbone Calcutta marble floors, fielded-panel walls, and a custom iron staircase with stunning brass handrails make the entrance of this home breathtaking. The house boasts custom White Oak wood floors, bleached dove grey, and custom laid in a herringbone design to match the foyer. The dining and living rooms have brass floor inlays, coffered ceilings, fielded-wall panel moldings, and a gas see-through fireplace (functioning on an electric switch). This side of the fireplace is adorned with antique mirror trimmed in brass. Off the living room are large double doors opening to a sun-drenched study featuring shining lacquered walls, making for a traditional library in a very modern home. On the other side of the foyer is a breathtaking, one of a kind, formal dining room, offering coffered-ceilings and exquisite paneled moldings. Custom painted wallpaper, measured and produced specifically for this room, was crafted and hand painted by artisans in Japan. The Herringbone oak wood floors, with brass inlay flow through the butler’s pantry into the kitchen. The butler’s pantry has custom made hardware on the cabinetry and Calcutta marble countertops. This room holds one of three sinks with Waterworks fittings and features a wine refrigerator and an ice maker. Separated from the foyer with a pocket door, the grand gourmet kitchen, made by GD Cucina in Italy, boasts all custom cabinetry. Crown moldings and white Calcutta marble countertops, thicker than most seen on the market today, and full wall sheet of Calcutta marble backsplash create an elegance within. A large center island with two waterfall sides holds one of two kitchen sinks, with Waterworks fittings, a hidden microwave oven and storage. All the appliances are European, by Gaggenau and include a sixburner gas range with Waterworks pot filler, two full refrigerators and freezers, a steam oven, a warming drawer and convection oven, and two dishwashers. Open to the spacious breakfast area with French doors to the rear patio, an inviting family room features a double sided glass gas fireplace, with book-matched Calcutta marble sitting atop, shared with the living room. Completing this floor is a separate wing with mudroom, access to the 3 car garage, outside entrance to the patio, walk-in closet, walk-in pantry, and full bathroom. On the second floor, a serene and over-sized master suite includes a bedroom with fielded wall moldings, high tray ceilings, plus an incredible master bath with all custom made Carrera marble walls and antique mirror, a custom twin vanity with leather panels, and a glass-enclosed steam room with three sets of exposed Lefroy Brooks shower/bath fittings and free-standing Waterworks tub. Two custom-fitted closets add to the suite’s luxury, but not to mention a separate custom woman’s closet, the size of a bedroom, with Marble Island. Completing this floor are three bedrooms all with baths en suite and beautifully appointed with custom designed tilework. The full finished basement is another level of living and entertaining for both the children and adults, and features a play area and art studio, a study, a glass-walled wine cellar, a gym/dance studio with mirrored wall and dance bar, as well as two bedrooms and two full baths. The basement also has a spacious laundry room, with custom subway tiling, featuring two full size Electrolux washers and dryers. With great attention to details and quality materials, this spectacular residence has everything you could imagine in the home of your dreams.

    Bringing the “Great Gatsby” era into the Twenty-first Century is what this magnificent 1980’s six-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath, Georgian Manor is all about. Standing majestically on five exquisitely landscaped and fully-fenced acres carved out of pristine woodland, this stately brick home welcomes guests with a large courtyard with ample parking, a steep slate-like architectural hip roof, and an imposing two-story portico with Corinthian columns. A breezeway connecting to a four-car garage leads to an expansive bluestone patio that wraps around the side and rear of the mansion with stone balustrade overlooking sweeping lawns. Stepping stones lead to a scenic koi pond with waterfall on one side and on the other, a fabulous outdoor entertainment complex with sparkling inground pool, blue surround, large and beautiful pool house with two bathrooms, a HarTru tennis court, and a secluded playground with jungle gym and trampoline. Located in the scenic and wooded community of Matinecock, this exceptional estate has easy access to boating, golf, beaches, mansion museums, public and private schools, plus delightful shops, restaurants, and train stations in nearby Locust Valley and Oyster Bay Village. Many say that this area is becoming the “New Hamptons” with all its entertainment and waterfront venues within only about an hour commute to Manhattan. Impeccably upgraded and updated, this wondrous home exhibits all the grandeur of the North Shore’s “Golden Age” estates, built by the likes of J.P. Morgan and F.W. Woolworth, but with a verve and sunny cheerfulness that fits the tastes and comforts of today. Its two-story entrance foyer entered through oversized Brazilian cherry wood doors with high, beveled-glass fanlight sets the stage with its white inlaid marble floors and white fielded-panel walls beneath golden damask wall coverings carrying the eye up to a second-floor balcony. To the left, a second foyer displays a stunning bridle staircase to the second floor and offers access to a powder room and the kitchen. To the right, the bright and welcoming living room invites one to sit and visit awhile in front of an elegant fireplace flanked by fielded panels that wrap around the room to two giant, multi-paned front windows. Gleaming oak floors flow into a side foyer with a second curved staircase, closets, and French doors to the patio and garage. To the rear of the home, the magnificent, banquet-sized formal dining room is a work of art. Exquisite artisanship is exhibited in the elaborate detailing in the crown molding, cartouche-like fielded panels, a lovely fireplace with carved mantel, and a spectacular, boiserie-enhanced tray ceiling. Large windows and French doors open to the rear patio, and a lovely stained-glass French door opens to the kitchen. This immense space, filled with sunshine through two walls of windows and French doors, feels more like a great party room than the fabulous cook’s kitchen that it is, with its high-end built-in appliances, granite counters, and custom cabinetry. Perhaps this is because of the two huge, granite-topped center islands that resemble fine furniture and conceal two dishwashers flanking a large farm sink in one and a prep sink plus a large glass induction cooktop in the other. No columns or upper cabinets block the view or interrupt the stunning coffered ceiling that stretches over the kitchen, huge breakfast area with French doors to the patio, and a delightful breakfast bar that in a corner with large bay window and window seat, cupboards, and wall television. Another expansive space ideal for entertaining on a grand scale, the library is reminiscent of yesteryear mansion’s grand salons. Enfolded by custom built-in bookcases and fielded paneling (with secret doors), it features a cozy fireplace, French doors to the patio, large windows, and ample space for two grand pianos, a game table, and several conversation areas. For relaxing, a spacious den provides a comfortable retreat for watching television or playing games. A mudroom with French door to the driveway and a guest suite with full bath complete this level. The second floor is equally luxurious and includes four striking bedroom/bath suites, a charming sitting room illuminated by a several windows and a windowed cupola, and with access to the back stairs, a laundry, and a lavish master suite. The L-shaped master bedroom enjoys a unique and stunning tray ceiling and a sitting area with balcony overlooking the rear property. The sunny and spacious marble master bath offers a Roman whirlpool tub, custom console twin vanities, large shower, a water closet with television, and access to an office and a dressing room with vanity and two custom-fitted walk-in closets. The partially-finished basement includes ample storage areas, a laundry room with two washers and dryers, pet shower, and utility room. The quintessence of luxury living and an entertainer’s paradise, this breathtaking estate offers all one could want in such a superb location that you will feel like you are on vacation 365 days a year.

    Driving along a beautiful Old Westbury road with lovely plantings and emerald lawns rolling off to grand residences, one comes upon a sequestered property set on a gentle rise and completely hidden from view by estate fencing and a thick wall of mature evergreens and trees. Tall brick stanchions with an electronic gate frame the entry to a long, tree-lined drive winding up and out of view. Little would passersby guess that at the end of that drive is an historical and architectural gem, “Horseshoe Hill,” overlooking a magical wonderland of ancient wooded gardens, sweeping sunny lawns, stone terraces, pools, fountains, pavilions and tennis court - all meticulously maintained for maximum enjoyment. Equally impressive as its gorgeous four-acre grounds, the sprawling 8,500 squarefoot mansion is truly a work of art. Designed by famed architect, Ulrich Franzen, in 1976, for its present owners, the structure stands on the approximate footprint of what was once a “Great Gatsby” era splendid manor house built in 1891 and later acquired by the Garvans, renowned art collectors who donated over 10,000 art objects to Yale University. While keeping 2 of the original manor’s grand public rooms, purported to have been imported from Europe, Franzen pursued a design that incorporated their timeless beauty into a sleek International style structure that enhanced their relevance by playing counterpoint to their intricate and ornate detailing. This new minimalistic form of design had the additional advantage of allowing soaring walls of glass to overlook the spectacular lawns and gardens, flooding the home with sunlight and nature unencumbered by elaborate interior design. Featured in many architectural and design magazines for its revolutionary concept and flawless execution, this magnificent home is now available to enthrall new owners who have a reverence for the unique, for the historic and for living life to the fullest. Though varying in architectural styles in the grounds and interior, there remains a strong unifying element. Striking beauty, an extreme attention to detail, superb craftsmanship and design as well as high-end custom finishes are the hallmarks of this grand residence and surrounding property. Both the antique wedding cake molded-plaster cove ceiling in the living room and the glass barrel ceiling skylight in the library reflect the supeb talent of the architect and artisans who created them. Guests are greeted from the expansive front courtyard into a welcoming foyer sparkling like a diamond with its walls of glass. Lustrous slate flooring flows through a gallery leading to the historic rooms that have been masterfully preserved in a museum-quality restoration. The living room fills one with fascination and awe with its antique Jacobean wood paneling, Corinthian pilasters, towering plastered cove ceiling, antique parquet floors, majestic antique fireplace, and expansive box-bay windows with rare antique leaded glass panes. Tall pocket doors open to the breathtaking great room. A spectacular open-beam timber-truss cathedral ceiling presides over original coffered oak paneling, a stunning antique green marble fireplace and soaring arched windows, while custom built-in furniture breaks up the great expanse into intimate conversation areas. The remainder of the floor plan has been designed for luxurious modern living with every amenity needed for comfort and ease in entertaining. The banquet-sized 2-story dining room offers fabulous views of the south lawn and fountain through a curved wall of glass. A state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen includes a walk-in pantry, center island, glass-walled breakfast area, and access to the laundry, staff/guest quarters with bath, the attached 2-car garage and rear and side patios, ideal for al fresco dining. Stairs in the gallery descend to the lower level featuring a large wine cellar, billiards room, play room, den, cabana bath and changing room with direct access out to the pool area. They also ascend to a den/balcony overlooking the dining room and to the palatial master suite with a wall of glass overlooking the beautiful property. A lavish marble master bath has all one could want in style and luxury. Four additional bedrooms on the first floor flank an inviting den with spiral staircase to the sky-lit library boasting a cozy fireplace and bookcases custom built by a well-known French cabinet maker. Once one experiences the drama, the beautry, the history, and supreme serenity of this grand estate, one will understand the vision of its noted architect and the love and tender care its present owners have given it for the past 36 years. LOCATION: For well over a century, Old Westbury has been a favorite destination for Manhattan’s captains of industry and finance to make their home. Its gently rolling verdant hillsides, dotted with horse farms and magnificent estates, testify to the love they had for the beauty of the area. Convenient to major highways and railway, the community is approximately a half-hour commute to New York City. With access to golf courses, polo, major universities, boating, museums, and premier shopping, the village is as appealing today as ever.
