Old Westbury Homes for Sale

About Old Westbury

According to Forbes and Newsweek magazines, Old Westbury is consistently ranked as one of the wealthiest suburbs in the country and has been a popular place for the elite to build their grand residences for two centuries. Conveniently located at the southern edge of what is known as Long Island’s “Gold Coast,” it is 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 still has miles of public riding trails, a horse farm, and polo grounds. Its population is about 4,200 residents and about 1000 families. 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 the home to three institutions of higher learning and two country-club golf courses.

Once upon a time, this fabled village of Old Westbury, repeatedly featured today in film and television productions for its opulent lifestyle, was, three centuries ago, the site of a very humble and bucolic existence. About 40 sprawling, self-sufficient farms, owned by a community of Quakers, with just a few businesses (blacksmith, grist mill, general store, and a dye and carpet factory), lived very contentedly from the mid-seventeenth to the late nineteenth century.

After the Civil War and the arrival of the railway, the farms were gradually sold to York City’s elite families, like the Phipps’s, Whitney’s, Vanderbilt’s, and Goodyear’s. They were drawn to these rolling wooded hillsides and open meadows, just 35 minutes from the city, where they could enjoy their equestrian sports such as horse racing, fox hunting, and polo. And so, they transformed the farms into magnificent estates with grand, sprawling manors reminiscent of European palaces.

With the construction of parkways on Long Island, and the demand for cheaper housing for returning service men and women after World War II, the face of Old Westbury was once again transformed. With rising land prices and taxes, the grand estate owners began to sell or bequeath their land to developers and institutions. Partially in Old Westbury, Long Island University Post was purchased from the Post estate, and named after the cereal inventor, Charles W. Post. The 530-acre Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney estate was sold to a developer who then sold 190 acres with the mansion to men creating the Old Westbury Golf and Country Club, and the remaining acreage turned into The New York Institute of Technology Old Westbury and the Seversky Conference Center. The SUNY College at Old Westbury was originally “Broad Hollow,” the estate of industrialist, philanthropist, and renowned equestrian, F. Ambrose Clark.

One of the remaining estates is the 100-acre estate, “Westbury,” built for John S. Phipps, heir to the U. S. Steel fortune, and his wife, Margarita Grace Phipps, of the Grace Shipping Company family in England. It was one of several homes that they owned and only lived there from September to January every year. Known today as Old Westbury Gardens, it has one of the most beautiful gardens in the world and is a very popular estate museum on Long Island. It was opened to the public by the Phipps’s daughter, Margaret Phipps Boegner, who lived there until she died in 2006 at 99 years old. This amazing gift to the public from the Phipps gives everyone who visits the opportunity to experience the opulence and grandeur of the Long Island’s “Golden Age”.

Estate fencing opens to an expansive rear property encircled by a lush backdrop of trees. Here, you can enjoy a summer filled with fun and friends enjoying a large inground pool with spa, spacious stone surround, and magnificent pavilion. Along the rear of the house, an expansive patio includes a new large pergola shading a complete outdoor kitchen. From its imposing, nearly-three-story portico with Corinthian columns and filigree-and-glass entrance doors, guests are welcomed into an enthralling two-story foyer. Sunlight entering through a massive transom light dances across heated inlaid stone floors, fielded-panel walls, and a graceful bridal staircase with elegant iron filigree balustrade. Archways framed by Corinthian pilasters and Ionic pillars frame entry into the living and dining rooms. Both magnificent rooms will delight the eye with glistening oak floors, front bow windows, wainscoting, and breathtaking ceilings with elaborate and massive moldings.

At one end, an exquisitely-crafted wall of custom cabinetry is both practical and a work of art. The other end of the room flows seamlessly into a spectacular gourmet kitchen with heated inlaid stone floors and a breakfast area with large bay window.

    $3,498,000
    6 Bedrooms 5 Full Baths 2 Half Baths
    Single Family For Sale ML# 3078016
    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 square-foot 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 superb 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 beauty, 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.
