Ideally located on a circular road with only one outlet, this stately Italian Villa offers the quintessence of luxury Long Island living. Standing serenely on over 2 gorgeous acres of sweeping level lawns enfolded by walls of lush foliage, this 6-bedroom, 6.5-bath manor is in a world of its own, a place of pure enchantment. In an area of equally grand residences, it enjoys the convenience of access to major highways, golf and equestrian facilities, boating, beaches, plus charming village shopping and dining. From its stucco exterior with coined corners and an architectural roof resembling red tile, to its elegant interior with high ceilings, soaring windows, and exquisite millwork, the home radiates a welcoming and elegant ambiance – perfect for year-round entertaining on a grand scale.
Welcoming guests with a large courtyard and soaring 2-story portico, the estate encompasses lovely landscaping, estate fencing, and a captivating entertainment complex. An expansive paving stone patio with outdoor BBQ and cooking area provides ample space for al fresco dining. It overlooks a beguiling freeform, inground Gunite pool with estate fencing, shade trees, gorgeous plantings, sunny patio and a babbling waterfall. A 4-car attached garage is serviced by a second courtyard and driveway off a cul-de-sac.
An enthralling 2-story entrance foyer is a fitting introduction to this palatial home. Inlaid marble floors flow past a graceful floating staircase, with fielded-panel wainscot, to steps descending into the stunning living room. Soaring windows flanking a magnificent marble fireplace, along with towering fielded panels, emphasize the 2 ½-story ceiling. An elegant, banquet-sized dining room, a warm and inviting library encased in fielded paneling, and a large, sunny den with sliding glass doors to the rear patio provide spacious and amiable rooms for entertaining. The generous, tile-floored eat-in-kitchen is a cook’s delight with ample granite-topped custom cabinetry, center-island with seating, and stainless steel appliances. A sunny breakfast area, set in a large bay, opens to the patio and flows into a sitting area with unique built-in entertainment center. A mudroom and laundry plus a full bath and a powder room complete the main level.
On the second floor, an expansive and very private master suite comprises its own wing. Its huge master bedroom includes a sitting area with picture window overlooking the pool and lawn. A dressing room with 2 custom-fitted walk-in closets leads to the opulent Travertine master bath boasting a Whirlpool tub, shower, twin vanity, dressing table and water-closet. A second bedroom with bath en suite, 4 additional bedrooms, 2 baths and a playroom are included on this floor. The full finished basement, with a billiards room, spacious entertainment room, kitchen and bath, has easy access to the rear patio and pool.
