    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.

    Long Island’s “Gold Coast” is dotted with many grand estates rich with history and stories of famous owners, but few if any have as long or more colorful history than Fort Hill House. Standing majestically on a bluff overlooking the cerulean waters of Long Island Sound, Cold Spring Harbor and Oyster Bay, this 10-acre estate’s story began long before the Revolutionary War and has seen everything from English soldiers repelling rebels to celebrity guests enjoying a gala ball. High on a bluff overlooking the water with endless walkways, award-winning gardens, and a lighted staircase descending to 1,800 feet of beach and a 160-foot deep-water dock, this magnificent 37-room, 1904 brick Tudor has been lovingly and impeccably restored to its former glory by the present owners sparing no expense and skipping no detail.

Approached by a circular courtyard, the manse welcomes visitors through a porte cochère to a second ci r cular cour t yard. Reached by a separate drive, an impressive 5,000+sq. ft. garage built by the present owner in 1994, closely resembles the main house. Location Lloyd Neck encompasses approximately 10 square miles and is located about 30 miles from Manhattan on the North Shore of Long Island. Many notable personalities have called it home over the past century including Marshall Field, whose estate is now Caumsett State Park with miles of equestrian and cross country ski trails. Just a few miles south, are the delightful villages of Huntington and Cold Spring Harbor boasting charming shopping districts and fine and casual dining. New York City is approximately a 50-minute commute by train or car, and airports are about 40 minutes away. History Few areas in the United States have as long and as colorful a history as Lloyd Neck. Encompassing approximately 3,000 acres and known originally as Caumsett, Loyd Neck is an emerald neck of land extending into Long Island Sound between Cold Spring and Huntington Harbors. It was originally purchased from Matinecock Native Americans in 1654 for a few pieces of clothing and some tools. In 1670, the area became the property of James Lloyd of Boston, who had his son, Henry develop the area as a manor in the English tradition, where tenants paid so much for the privilege of living and farming there. The Lloyd Manor House was built in 1711 but shortly burned down and was replaced 1714. It was occupied by Benjamin Thompson, who designed the nearby Fort Franklin that was built on the very site of the present Fort Hill House. Lloyd Manor had the unique distinction of housing the Duke of Clarence (later to become King William IV). During the Revolutionary War, Fort Franklin, perched on a bluff high above the water, was a strategic part of England’s defense of her war ships moored in Cold Spring Harbor and Oyster Bay. Revolutionary forces tried many times to take the fort but to no avail. For centuries, cannon balls, shot and coins have been unearthed by gardeners throughout the Neck. The Lloyds forfeited the land around the fort to England’s military, and it was subsequently purchased in 1879 by Anne Coleman Alden. Alden commissioned famed architectural firm McKim, Mead & Bigelow to build her a summer residence on the site. In 1900, William John Matheson, a brilliant chemist who founded a dye and pigment company that merged with J. P. Morgan’s Allied Chemical, purchased the 330 acre estate from Mrs. Alden’s heirs. He commissioned Boring and Tilton, architects who designed the Ellis Island buildings, to create a sprawling brick and limestone structure over the McKim house in a Tudor style with castellated parapets, colonnades, and ramparts overlooking the water, paying homage to its predecessor, Fort Franklin. One remnant of both the Alden house and former fort can be seen in the quadrangle courtyard. Here, a semicircular wall formed from the original fort earthworks diplays a curved built-in seat designed by Charles McKim and a headstone taken from the pasture that pays tribute to a fallen English soldier. Matheson later added an indoor squash court, a porte cochère, ballroom, and acres of formal gardens. The present owners purchased Fort Hill in 1992 and over 3 years, meticulously rest

    MUTTONTOWN. Reminiscent of the charming early Twentieth Century summer homes built by wealthy New Yorkers in New England and on Long Island’s “Gold Coast,” this enchanting young Georgian Colonial is special in many ways. For starters, it is part of an enclave of magnificent multi-acre properties virtually surrounded by the 550-acre Muttontown Preserve with its miles of nature walks, horse and ski trails, and remnants of three historic estates. Ensconced on over four gorgeous acres of emerald lawns, pool and greenhouse enfolded by pristine woodland, this stunning 2009, five-bedroom, six-full and two-half-bath home creates a sense of timeless serenity and seclusion. Nevertheless, it offers easy access to major highways and thus to all the recreational, cultural, shopping and dining experiences for which the area is so loved. Best known for its nature preserves, magnificent estates, and pleasant residential character, the village of Muttontown was incorporated in 1931, but its rich history and name originated in the 1600’s when Dutch and English settlers found its verdant rolling hillsides ideal for raising sheep. 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 Muttontown Preserve offers some of the most beautiful parkland on Long Island. Entered through a gated entry, this magical retreat warms the heart with verdant vistas of manicured lawns and plantings, majestic trees, and an enchanting home with wide, wraparound, partially screened-in porch, a greenhouse, bluestone stepping-stone walkways, crushed bluestone courtyards, and a delightful, picket-fenced, inground Gunite pool with bluestone surround. Radiating a classic Traditional ambiance with beautiful moldings, high arched doorways, hardwood floors, a plethora of oversized windows and French doors, the sun-drenched interior offers a well-designed floor plan for year-round entertaining. This includes four inviting fireplaces plus easy access to porches, patios, and the pool area and an elevator to all three floors. The entrance foyer, with its striking harlequin floors and wainscoting, extends through the house to a French door opening to the rear porch. To the right, an immense living room offers a handsome fireplace and three walls of large windows overlooking the property. The formal dining room is classically adorned with wainscot, muraled walls, and archway into an elegant marble-and-cherry butler’s pantry. Sharing a see-through fireplace with the dining room, the spacious and sunny family room includes a coffered ceiling, built-in cabinetry, and French doors to the patio. It is open to the sunny breakfast room, also with access to the patio, and into the fabulous country kitchen. Despite its delightful colonial country charm, this bright and generous cook’s delight features everything to suit a modern gourmet chef. It boasts extensive custom Shaker cabinetry, Carrera-marble countertops, subway-tile backsplash, farm sink, two center islands, one with curved seating area and sink, the other with glass-and-wood top, beverage refrigerator on one side and buffet drawers on the breakfast side. Its numerous high-end appliances include a wolf 6-burner gas range with 2 ovens, a wall oven, microwave/convection oven, SubZero double refrigerator and 4 freezer drawers, and 2 integrated dishwashers. Also on this level are a generous three-season porch, a powder room, a cabana bath, a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers, and access to the attached three-car garage. On the second floor, a romantic master suite features a sunny bedroom with fireplace, dentil crown molding, walk-in closets, and a luxurious marble bath with marble-topped vanity and dressing table, water closet, steam shower, and claw-and-ball tub. Four additional bedrooms, each with bath en suite, and a huge bonus room, presently used as a gym and game room, complete this level. A full partially-finished basement provides ample storage and expansion possibilities. Sure to stand the test of time, no matter the prevailing style of the day, this magnificent and lovingly appointed New England-style Colonial, in its idyllic and secluded estate setting, nearly surrounded by a nature preserve, is truly a dream come true.

    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.

    Majestically situated on five pristine acres, this architectural masterpiece presents a unique opportunity for lovers of design and nature to bask in the illuminating merger of both. Shining like a striking spacecraft that had just landed, this modern mansion was built with five separate levels of white-painted redwood highlighted by horizontal rows of glass. This was designed so the towering trees, flowering shrubs and beds, perfectly placed throughout the estate, would be viewed from the interior like its own living space, creating a pulse of emotion and vitality. The interior design includes soaring, massive walls of white expanse, a blank palette on which to express your personal style and taste, affected by the ever-changing seasons and interplay of dancing sunlight and shadow. This exceptional estate has been recently renovated by well-known architect owner, Michael Harris Spector, founder of the celebrated New York architectural firm, Spector Group. Believing in simplicity of design, Mr. Spector and his talented and creative wife have fashioned a timeless world of imagination and enchantment that encompasses six bedrooms, four full and four half baths, a sculptured spiraled staircase soaring through the two-story great room, banquet-sized dining room, custom-designed gourmet kitchen, inviting den and an ethereal master suite. Secluded from neighbors and passersby with walls of evergreens and lush foliage, this blissful haven belies its convenient location in the heart of Old Westbury. Long a popular area for New York’s magnates and luminaries to build their grand estates, Old Westbury is just 30 minutes by railway or highway from Manhattan and Kennedy and LaGuardia airports. Conveniently located near parks and museums, it is also just a short drive from fine dining, premier shopping such as the Americana at Manhasset, country clubs, miles of public equestrian trails, polo club, yacht clubs and beaches. Approached off a wooded road, through an electronic gate and up a long, tree-lined drive, this bastion of serenity and breathless beauty welcomes guests with sweeping lawns adorned with colorful flowerbeds and a picturesque pond with fountain bubbling in the distance. Concealed from view by hedgerows masking security estate fencing, a sparkling inground pool offers many hours of summer enjoyment. The nearby pool house provides ample space for partying or a perfect spot for a studio or office removed from the main house. It has a half-bath and workshop on first level and upstairs, a guest suite. Stairs connect upper and lower passages from the pool and pool house to two levels of the main house. An open parking area tucked under the house includes ample storage cabinets and closets and room for three cars. From the parking area, a covered entryway opens through a stunning eight-foot-wide le Corbusier pivot entrance door into a foyer where a gentle ramp ascends in a sun-drenched three-story glass-walled atrium to the main level’s expansive two-story great room. A wood-burning fireplace with stair-stepped niches echo the cubist-like treatment of the walls with right angles forming a glass-walled balcony and horizontal windows playing counterpoint to floor-to-ceiling walls of glass. Here a door opens to the spacious patio, overlooking the pond, that has an outdoor kitchen ideal for al fresco dining. In the midst of it all, a stunning open, circular staircase ascends to the upper levels illuminated by a sky light at its apex. A wet bar and a banquet-sized formal dining room add to the ease of entertaining in this immense open and airy space. The adjoining Boffi kitchen is a study of extreme simplicity obscuring a complexity of function with hidden features in the sleek custom, lacquered cabinetry with Thassos marble countertops and walls, tile floors and high-end stainless steel appliances. These include a gas cooktop, two dishwashers and wine cooler all by Bosch, a Thermador double oven, and SubZero refrigerator. Everything is illuminated by under-cabinet lighting, clerestories and a picture window above the huge double sink. The sun-drenched breakfast area opens through sliders in a wall of glass to an inviting patio enjoying a perfect view of the stunning, three-season linear flowerbeds edged by low hedges. A service area off the kitchen includes a laundry room, powder room, an office and back stairs to all floors. Continuing up the ramp in the atrium from the main level, the next level features the palatial master suite offering a capacious master bedroom with a 14-foot wall punctuated by two horizontal windows and a row of clerestories all with electronic blinds. Sliding glass doors open to a private balcony, perfect for a morning cup of coffee with Mother Nature. The white marble master bath with 14-foot ceiling is illuminated by high picture windows and features a large frameless-glass-enclosed shower. Up another ramp are two walk-in closets and, off one of them, a second master bath. Also on this level is a bright and spacious family room, enfolded by built-in bookcases and media center, and a bridge leading to a large second floor studio and storage. Below this level of the studio, is a first floor pool cabana and bath. The third level houses 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms with separate tubs and showers, a large play room, a sun-drenched and spacious study, a fitness center with a full bath that includes a Jacuzzi, a separate maids quarters; another bedroom and access to a large observatory deck.
