    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.
