    Paying homage to the grand estates of Long Island’s glorious “Golden Age,” this majestic brick, six-bedroom, seven-bath, two-powder room Georgian manor commands over five exquisitely landscaped acres of serenity and seclusion. Entered through massive iron gates off a quiet cul-de-sac, this exquisitely appointed, pristine estate shares a street with six equally magnificent properties in the “Gold Coast” village of Upper Brookville. Long a popular location for the elite to build their grand residences, its beautiful wooded countryside is dotted with gorgeous two to five-plus acre properties. Its approximate 1,700 residents enjoy a great location convenient to boating, golf, equestrian facilities, quaint village shopping, museums, and Long Island Railroad putting them within approximately a 40-minute commute to Manhattan. As if welcoming you home with open arms, two wings radiate out from a central entrance tower featuring a large portico and soaring arched clerestory. An expansive front courtyard and a side service area, accessing two oversized two-car garages, provide ample parking for guests. A Grand Manor shangle roof, towering chimneys, and dentil detailing beneath the soffits may remind you of a stately English country gentleman’s house, as does the home’s interior. Encircled by a grove of mature trees, the estate’s sweeping lawns enfold three spacious stone patios, all connected by stepping-stone pathways, which also lead to a delightful inground pool and spa. Estate fencing, a huge stone surround, and a charming pool house, featuring a vaulted center room with double sliders, kitchenette, full bath, changing room, and outdoor shower, provide an inviting venue for summer entertaining. Enter through arched double entry doors and be enthralled by the three-story entrance foyer where sunlight dances across French limestone floors with black slate inserts, and a graceful bridal staircase with American walnut piano finished handrail carries your eye upward past massive crown molding to a ceiling with hand-painted circular floral mural. From this grand entry, a unique floor plan fans out into the principal rooms like the digits on your hand. To the left, three steps descend into the country-club-like great room with towering coffered cathedral ceiling and gleaming random-plank walnut floors. Five sets of French doors with transom lights open to a spacious stone patio and formal garden. A huge custom walnut bar, with extensive built-ins, a granite-countertop, and brass foot rail, invites you to sit and enjoy a drink while watching the game on TV or your friends playing a game on the pool table behind you. The centerpiece of the room is a breathtaking Tudor-arched grand fireplace with ornate walnut mantel ascending to the ceiling. Iron-filigree gates flanking the hearth, open to an equally congenial gathering place, the solarium, boasting wrap around glass windows, tongue-and-groove cathedral ceiling, and blue stone floors, allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the grounds year-round. Just to the right of the great room, a short hallway, accessing an onyx and Sherle Wagner powder room, leads into the spacious and inviting living room that opens to the rear patio. Exquisitely crafted maple fielded paneling enfolds the room showcasing a stunning fireplace with matching maple mantel. An alcove flanked by lower level stairs and coat closet, leads you through double doors into the library/study that also opens to the rear patio. Oversized herringbone Jatoba floors and rich mahogany wood in the moldings, built-ins, and majestic custom handmade carved fireplace creates a retreat you won’t want to leave. Regal in size and appointments, the opulent formal dining room sets the stage for magnificent banquets. With its corbel and acanthus-leaf crown moldings, its boiserie-adorned fielded paneling and fireplace, and its herringbone Teak hardwood floors, it delights the eye at every turn. Leaded-glass French doors open to the foyer next to an alcove leading to the family room. This generous space is illuminated by a huge bay window with custom built-in banquette. An inviting fireplace, flanked by built-in bookcases and entertainment center, invites you to sit and relax for a while. Entered from the dining room and foyer, the sunny and spacious butler’s pantry with extensive custom cabinetry and farm sink, flows into and coordinates with, the immense country kitchen. Although designed for entertaining on a grand scale, this chef’s delight offers a warm and cozy ambiance. Its custom maple cabinetry with Delft blue tile backsplash makes everyone feel at home, and its high-end appliances make meal prep a breeze. These include side-by-side, full-size Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, two Miele integrated dishwashers, a microwave, and a Viking professional-grade six-burner gas range with grill, griddle, and two large ovens.

The kitchen also accesses the family room and back staircase leading to the upper level and another staircase leading to the lower level. From the upstairs balcony overlooking the foyer, double doors open to the palatial French Empire Master Suite where custom built-ins wrap around a semicircular wall in the bedroom. A lavish onyx master bath with large shower, Jacuzzi tub and makeup vanity that is flanked by twin vanities, plus a room-sized, four-season closet stand ready to spoil you.

    Deep in the heart of the North Shore’s quaint village of Cold Spring Harbor, with its New England whaling town ambiance, stands a timeless treasure. Entered via a crushed bluestone allée, an impressive inlaid brick-and-bluestone courtyard welcomes you to an imposing stone and brick French Normandy home. Though built in the 1930’s this thoroughly renovated gem is more reminiscent of a country home perhaps owned by a nobleman in Shakespeare’s time. Resplendent with a turret, Ludovici tiled roof, cross timbers, and casement windows, it stands regally on over two-and-a-half magnificent acres of sweeping lawns and gorgeous gardens enfolded by lush mature trees and flowering shrubs. A delight for entertaining year-round, it offers verandas, and various brick patios, one beside an inviting inground pool, and another with a sail awning and firepit overlooking a distant fountain. Just off the kitchen, a porch and terrace, with herb garden and room for seating and grilling, overlook the pool. Named after its many fresh-water springs flowing into the harbor, Cold Spring Harbor, comprises about four-square miles of rolling wooded hillsides with about 5,000 residents. It has been the home to many notable citizens from Louis Comfort Tiffany, a world-famous turn-of-the-century designer, to the Beatles’ John Lennon, and Nobel Prize winner, James D. Watson. 38 miles from Manhattan, Cold Spring Harbor has its own Long Island Railroad Station for an easy commute. Its charming shopping district is a popular destination for Long Islanders with its quaint shops and delicious restaurants nestled on a picturesque street just east of the harbor. With its own library, Whaling Museum, the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (a world-renowned genetics center), a trout hatchery, harbor, boat ramp, the Paramount Theater, Caumsett State Park, and the Cold Spring Harbor State Park with miles of hiking trails, this picturesque North Shore community offers an incredible array of things to do: golfing, biking, ice-hockey, boating, and beaches. If surprised by the “old world” charm of this incredible home, prepare to be bowled over by its sprawling interior. Thoroughly renewed and updated throughout while keeping its exquisite original architectural details, it has entered the Twenty-First Century with modern amenities and a touch of contemporary pizzazz. The original massive oak entrance door with skeleton-key lock, frieze entablature and columns, opens to a spacious stone-floor and open-beam foyer with vintage French doors opening to the rear patio. The breathtaking staircase turret room features bluestone floors, white-washed brick walls, and a stunning floating concrete staircase carrying the eye up a graceful modern iron balustrade to an open-beam teacup ceiling. The hub of the home, the foyer, leads down a few steps and through a massive barn door into the west wing’s ballroom-sized living room. Its high ceiling provides hi-hat and studio lighting to illuminate paintings on gallery-like walls, while vintage windows and French doors with interior shutters, remind us of the home’s origins. A delightful window seat beneath a towering bay of casements offers a sunny spot to sit and dream or visit with friends, while at the far end of the room, a wall of custom cabinetry enfolds a wood-burning fireplace and two doors accessing closets and the study. This versatile and unexpected getaway, featuring a fireplace, walk-in closet, full bath, and several windows, could also serve as a guest or first-floor master suite. Also, off the living room, a cozy chamber with outside entrance is the perfect spot for storing firewood. The east wing begins with the banquet-sized dining room. A fireplace, enhanced by wood columns topped by carved acanthus leaves and frieze, sets the stage for grand repasts, while a huge bay window and casements flood the space with sunny vistas. Oak floors flow through a vintage paneled doorway into the library featuring original ornate bookcases and a cozy corner stucco fireplace. Another door leads into an oversized butler’s pantry, complete with plentiful restored cabinetry, double sink, Miele dishwasher, Subzero wine fridge, and access to a hallway leading to the foyer, which includes a powder room, housekeeping closet with sink, and a coat closet. Both library and pantry open into the modern open-concept kitchen part of the wing. This roomy and contemporary space boasts extensive custom birds eye maple cabinetry, soapstone countertop, period double sink with side drainers, hi-hat lighting, and high-end appliances. These include an integrated Miele dishwasher and Subzero refrigerator plus a huge European stainless-steel and blue-enamel ILVE gas stove with six burners, griddle, grill, two electric ovens, stainless exhaust hood and a glass-tile full-wall backsplash designed by the artist Allison Goldenstein. Hardwood floors flow into the large breakfast alcove, with sliders to the porch and grilling area, and on into the family room, which accesses the backstairs, porch, mud room, and laundry room. A cabana powder room off the kitchen has outside entry with access from the pool. The second floor features a long hallway with dormers overlooking the front courtyard and all bedrooms, most overlooking the rear property. Having the east wing to itself, the master suite comprises a sun-drenched bedroom with interior shutters on French doors and windows, a spacious dressing room with fireplace, mirrored closets, and a walk-in closet, plus a unique master bath with all glass walk-in shower, and twin vanity. Four bedrooms (two with fireplaces) share two baths between adjoining bedrooms, while two additional bedrooms and a full bath near the back stairs could serve as either guest or staff quarters. A partially finished basement is a great hangout with room for many table sports, gym, home theater, and wine cellar.

    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.

    Single Family For Sale ML# 3126440
    Standing serenely on a magnificent two-and-a-half-acre property, this elegant 2005 brick manor combines the brilliance of several architectural styles to create the perfect setting for today’s gracious North Shore living. Its sublime Palladian symmetry transcends the norm. Its Georgian character echo’s Long Island’s “Golden Age.” And its glorious interior, portraying a touch of French-Empire opulence, reminds us to enjoy the moment. On a peaceful cul-de-sac in Pen Mor Farms, this resplendent six-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home with pool and tennis/basketball court, is approached by a scenic winding road accented by white-plank horse fencing. This bucolic touch pays homage to the 88-acre development’s origins. Once filled with pastures, paddocks and barns, it was the largest breeding farm for thoroughbred racing horses in New York State. Now known for its many gorgeous mini estates and grand homes, it may entertain the occasional two or four-legged visitor from the neighboring Hoffman Center Nature Preserve and Wildlife Sanctuary. Muttontown, known as one of the wealthiest communities in the nation, was settled originally in the 1600’s by Dutch and English sheep farmers. During the early Twentieth Century, many of New York’s financial leaders established their grand residences on these majestic hills located only 25 miles from Manhattan. Two former estates of New York City families are now known as The Muttontown Golf and Country Club and The Woodcrest Club. With similar roots, the well-known 550-acre Muttontown Preserve offers some of the most beautiful parkland on Long Island. Though surrounded by tranquility, the village’s approximate 4,000 residents, on about 6,000 acres, are within easy reach of premier shopping, dining, entertainment and transportation hubs. Past stately maple trees, electronic iron gates open to welcome you to sweeping acres of emerald lawns secluded by walls of trees and estate fencing. A bluestone-pebble drive provides ample space for parking in its front courtyard and two service courtyards giving access to two attached two-car garages. Across the rear on the house, an expansive bluestone terrace includes areas grilling at its outdoor kitchen, a firepit, and an al fresco dining area. All overlook an oversized, sixty-four-foot, inground, heated pool with spacious bluestone patio, pergola, wi-fi, mood lighting, and sound-system speakers. A walkway leads back to a tennis/basketball court. Upon entering through oversized double entry doors, you will be enthralled by the grandeur of the central, two-story entrance foyer with its gleaming inlaid marble floors, towering pediment-topped doorways, and graceful twin bridal staircases ascending to a curved balcony – all illuminated by Gothic and bullseye clerestories. The formal living and dining rooms are exquisitely appointed, the later featuring a stunning wainscot and access to the butler’s pantry with bar. The former accesses the west wing hall leading to a powder room, well-equipped laundry room, garage, and a charming den with bay of arched windows, French doors to the terrace, and access to a full cabana bath. To the rear of the foyer, the sun-drenched and congenial great room is the hub of the house. The centerpiece of this thirty-foot high room is a marble fireplace, with massive Traditional ern-and-swag mantel flanked by French doors to the patio with arched gothic clerestories above. The east hall leads from here to the second garage, a clever built-in planning center, basement stairs, butler’s pantry, backstairs, and the kitchen. Open to the great room, this charming French Country cook’s dream is a work of art AND an artfully executed workspace. Gorgeous, furniture-like, custom cabinetry is embellished with corbels, intricate moldings, Delft tile backsplash, marble countertop, farm sink, and large, mahogany-topped center island with prep sink and seating. High-end fixtures and appliances include a pro-grade 6-burner-and-grill gas range with two ovens, integrated oversized refrigerator and dishwasher, warming drawer, microwave, espresso machine, and instant hot-water tap. Hardwood floors flow into the delightful breakfast area, mirroring the floorplan of the den, and also opening to the terrace. Custom painted walls and ceiling mural of blue sky and fluffy clouds add a touch of whimsy to the space. Overlooking the great room, the upstairs landing accesses to the west, the palatial and private master suite where you can luxuriate in your spacious bedroom, sitting area, walk-in closets (one with window), and your spa-like verde-marble master bath. This boasts a whirlpool tub, steam shower, water closet with commode and bidet, and ample built-in custom twin vanity. To the right of the landing are three bedrooms with baths en suite, two bedrooms sharing a bath with twin vanity and whirlpool tub, attic access, and two closets. All bedrooms would rival a five-star hotel. The full finished basement offers an immense multi-purpose space, a mirrored gym, storage, utilities, and a staff bedroom and full bath. So much has been provided in this spectacular home to make your life easier and happier, including the finest in materials and products throughout. All that is needed to make it your perfect home is you.

    Oh, if walls could talk, what we could learn from this magnificent, fully restored 1925 Georgian manor. And what its previous celebrated owners would say if they could see it now, more glorious than ever! Surrounded by over seven acres of the best part of its one-time Golden Age 106-acre estate, Tamburlaine Gate stands regally - the crown jewel of Broadhollow Estates. This collection of smaller luxury estates is carved from the original acreage. With gated entrance, circular drive, gorgeous, arboretum-like grounds, par-three golf hole, oversized heated pool, pool house, and opulent, extremely comfortable, twenty-nine-room mansion, this exceptional estate offers the opportunity of a lifetime. With Long Island’s recent rebirth of the “Golden Age,” many builders are creating their versions of Gold Coast mansions, but all fall short of this “Great Gatsby Era” gem that combines a fascinating history, architectural perfection, sumptuousness, and a warm and inviting ambiance that both enthralls and enfolds you with a sense of ease and wellbeing. LOCATION: Located on a gentle hilltop in the heart of Brookville, one of the wealthiest communities in the country, Tamburlaine Gate is surrounded by beautiful estates on gentle, rolling and wooded hillsides. Yet, it is convenient to delightful shops and restaurants, universities, many golf courses, equestrian facilities, beaches, boating, museums, and more. About three miles from major arteries, it is approximately twenty-seven miles from Manhattan. HISTORY: Brookville and its neighbor, Old Westbury, for over a century, have been popular with movers and shakers to build their grand estates and socialize with each other. A history of this “Great Gatsby” Era home, is like reading a roster of some of those elite families. Let’s begin with the manor’s noted architect, William T. Aldrich, who designed it for his brother, Winthrop Williams Aldrich, chairman of Manhattan Chase Bank and ambassador to the Court of St. James, under Eisenhower. The brothers had a father, Nelson W. Aldrich, who was a U.S. senator for thirty years, and a brother-in-law, for decades considered the richest man in the world, John D. Rockefeller. In 1950, the estate was sold to Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt II, great, great, great grandson of Cornelius Vanderbuilt, who founded the family fortune. His father died a hero when he gave his life jacket to a lady on the Lusitania that sank in World War I. In 1956, grandson of F. W. Woolworth, James Paul (Jimmy) Woolworth Donahue, Jr., bought the Broadhollow estate. A socialite known for having fun and overindulging, he led a riotous life, entertaining frequently at his grand home. The estate is mentioned in his biography, DANCING WITH THE DEVIL, by Christopher Wilson. After his death, the estate then was purchased by Percy Uris, who, with his brother was known for building skyscrapers, which transformed the New York skyline. Their philanthropies were legendary, donating millions to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, some Ivy League colleges, and more. After Uris died, the next owner of the estate was Louis Evangelista, a real estate investor and builder, who transformed it into Broadhollow Estates. PROPERTY: Lending itself to entertaining year-round, Tamburlaine Gate offers a wide circular drive and generous parking area for guests. The property invites exploration beginning with a broad stone terrace overlooking the expansive par-three golf hole, complete with sand trap. A stone wall invites you through an archway, past a koi pond, into a shady grove guarded by fearsome stone oriental warriors. Steps lead down to a grassy allée passing through an English perennial garden. At the end, a secluded 61’x 30’ inground, heated pool offers a cooling respite. A Palladian-style pool house provides his-and-hers dressing rooms, showers, and baths flanking a party room. RESIDENCE: The exquisite architectural and interior-design elements exhibited in this resplendent three-story residence are so numerous they could fill a book and cannot all be mentioned here. From the slate roof and coined brick exterior to the gorgeous moldings, huge floor-to-ceiling windows, teak and oak floors, abundance of secret passages, eleven distinctive fireplaces, elaborate moldings, and remarkable artisan-created wall and window coverings, every detail enhances this timeless masterpiece. Offering both immense and intimate entertainment spaces, it is perfect for entertaining any number of guests or for just relaxing alone with a good book. The home offers three floors of living space plus a full basement. The main floor boasts a grand entrance hall with cloak and powder rooms, a second foyer with impressive staircase, a ballroom-size living room, and banquet-sized dining room – all with elegant fireplaces and gorgeous windows. But it also offers an intimate parlor with stunning French wall covering and wet bar, a cozy family room with fireplace and built-in arched cabinetry, and a fabulous black-walnut library complete with billiard table, bookcases, fireplace, and secret stairs to the master suite. Creating a summer-like space, no matter the season, a delightful spot for conversation, cards, or even lunch, this roomy solarium was originally a loggia open to the weather. Now enclosed, it still can offer summer breezes through three sets of Palladian double-doors opening to the rear terrace and lawn. The second floor provides many beautifully appointed bedrooms. In the main section, five have fireplaces and access to baths en suite. Four spacious bedrooms and two baths are in the east wing along with storage rooms and dumb waiter, and a palatial master suite is in the west wing. This features a spacious master bedroom with fireplace, custom walk-in closet, a sitting room, with fireplace, and a luxury marble master bath with twin vanity, whirlpool tub, and large glass-enclosed shower.

    Carved out of an emerald sea comprising hundreds of acres of pristine ancient woodland, this arboreal paradise, just shy of five-and-a-half-acres, is surprisingly isolated from Long Island’s bustling population… and will remain so. Bordered by the Hope Goddard Iselin Preserve, now owned by the North Shore Land Alliance, and the 400-acre Planting Fields Arboretum State Park woods, its manicured lawns form scattered clearings for its sunny, sprawling six-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath ranch, its estate-fenced inground Gunite pool, hidden tennis court with observation patio, and bath/pool house, with two verandas, two dressing rooms, two full baths, and a rear built-in chess board. All are secluded and separated by woods that seem to go on forever – magnificent, mature woods that beg to be explored and enjoyed. Sharing a shady cul-de-sac with a few other estates, the neighbors you might occasionally see will be, most likely, of the fowl or fauna variety. However, this seemingly remote retreat is easy for guests to find and only two miles from golf courses, the Northern Boulevard business corridor, and is less than three miles from Oyster Bay Village’s beach, marina, train station, delightful shops and restaurants. The Locust Valley area is just a little farther with all its recreational destinations that make living here feel like a year-round vacation. If you are a horse enthusiast, this property has the added advantage of being zoned for horses and stables. Perennial gardens plus flowering shrubs and trees add ever-changing panoply of color around the brick-accented front courtyard, its iron entry gates, the expansive rear bluestone and brick patio, the pool area, and other hidden spots on the estate. A huge parking area off a separate driveway provides ample parking by the attached four-car garage and service area. Guests are welcomed into a sunny entrance foyer with sky-lit vaulted ceiling and inlaid marble floors that flow into hallways leading into east and west wings of the house. To the rear, folding doors reveal the elegant and gracious living room, which opens to the rear patio through French doors framed by French windows. A high tray ceiling presides over herringbone hardwood floors and a charming granite and carved wood fireplace. A glass-and-mirror walk-through wet bar, with ice maker, leads into the generous, warm, and inviting study. Featuring similar floors, tray ceiling, fireplace, and French patio access as the living room, it also boasts faux-painted marble wainscoting and stunning upholstered walls. Also, off the living room, the sun-drenched dining room is illuminated by French doors to the patio and a sky-lit vaulted ceiling. Terra cotta floors flow into the expansive eat-in kitchen’s breakfast area that opens to the patio. Extensive floor-to-ceiling cabinetry runs nearly the entire length of this chef’s dream kitchen and provides plenty of elbow room for two cooks to work thanks to two separate work areas. One comprises a large peninsula with Jennair electric cooktop, sink, and seating area. The other includes a double sink beneath a front window, wraparound cabinetry, an integrated Sub-Zero refrigerator, and stainless-steel Viking four-burner gas range, Kitchen Aid dishwasher, a trash compacter, and a wine cooler. Granite countertop and backsplash run throughout. Open to the kitchen and the dining room, a cozy family room, with hardwood herringbone floors, provides a perfect spot to relax. It could also swap places with the dining room if desired. A service area off the kitchen includes a mudroom, maid’s room, full bath, back stairs, and side entrance. Off the hall in the west wing, the romantic master suite encompasses: a charming sitting room with closet and built-in cabinetry; a regal bedroom with French doors to the patio; two walk-in closets; attic access; and a sky-lit Roman-spa-like master bath with twin sinks, Americh Airbath tub, glass-enclosed shower, bidet, commode, and built-in cabinetry. Also, in the west wing are stairs to the basement, a coat closet, and a spacious bedroom with two closets and full bath. The east wing begins with a lovely Sherle Wagner powder room with faux-painted marble walls. Next, a bedroom, presently used as a study, has two closets and a full bath. The partial second floor, accessed from the service area, features two additional bedrooms sharing a Jack-and-Jill bath with twin vanity. The expansive finished basement is the place to be for fun and entertainment. It provides great carpeted spaces with high ceilings, built-in entertainment center, bar, and plenty of room for billiards, media center, home theater, gym, lounge or whatever you may desire. It also includes a laundry room, storage area, and garage access. Whether you want to escape the “madding crowd,” enjoy nature to the fullest, entertain large parties no matter the season, or all of the above, this magnificent estate and its impeccable, expansive eleven-room home are ready for you to move in and enjoy.
