Classic Setting for Gracious Entertaining
Offering a sense of serenity and timelessness, this stately brick Georgian Colonial welcomes guests onto its gorgeous grounds with a long, tree-lined driveway encircling a formal English garden with cherubic fountain. Its brick façade and towering portico sparkle like a rare gem set in a necklace of lush emerald green foliage. Designed and built by the award-winning landscaping firm of Goldberg and Rodler, Inc, the home’s entire two-acre property creates a sanctuary of beauty and comfort. A plethora of towering trees serve as a backdrop to exquisite gardens and a spectacular outdoor entertainment complex with glistening Gunite pool, a Tuscan-columned pergola, and expansive brick-inlaid bluestone terraces accented by brick walls, outdoor lighting, and an ever-changing array of flowering shrubs. The home’s 7,000 square-foot interior is equally enthralling with large principal rooms offering many fanlight-topped French doors, lustrous hardwood floors, high ceilings, and beautifully crafted millwork seen in elegant moldings and stunning built-in cabinetry.
Set far back from a peaceful and secluded circular road, this magnificently renovated residence is part of a picturesque enclave of impressive homes on park-like properties in the heart of Old Westbury. 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 are dotted with magnificent estates that testify of the love these men had for the beauty of the area. Convenient to major highways and the Long Island Railroad, the area is approximately a half-hour commute to New York City. Dotted with golf courses, a polo club, three major universities, and just a short drive from boating, museums, and premier shopping, the village is as appealing today as ever.
Upon entering the dramatic center-hall, two-story foyer, visitors will be captivated by the gleaming inlaid Absolute Black granite floor and the stunning grand staircase. To the left, the inviting living room provides an elegant yet comfortable gathering place featuring a stunning recessed walk-in wet bar with seating, fielded paneling, and a large marble-faced fireplace flanked by French doors opening to the alluring family room. This divine retreat opens to the rear patio through two sets of French doors and offers a raised library alcove serving dual purpose as a platform for musical performances.
To the right of the foyer, the elegant formal dining room is embellished with a cove lit tray ceiling and striking display cabinets encased in Black Glass. To the rear of the foyer, the enchanting country kitchen features extensive granite-topped, raised-panel cabinetry with limestone backsplash. High-end appliances include a SubZero refrigerator and a large, gas Viking cooktop set in a center island with exhaust hood, seating area, and marine-varnished wood countertop. Inlaid limestone floors flow into the spacious breakfast area that opens through French doors to the rear patio. An office and cabana on the first floor offer flexible space that could be two additional bedrooms. These rooms share a dramatic designer bath.
On the second floor, where a large balcony overlooks the foyer’s grand staircase, each of two additional, beautiful bedrooms offers generous windows and closets plus its own updated and attractive bath en suite. The palatial and incredibly luxurious 1200-square-foot master suite creates the ideal getaway that includes a generous master bedroom with a tray ceiling, fielded-panel wainscot, a huge bay window flanked by circular windows, and access to a gym and large, custom-fitted walk-in closet/dressing room. The lavish master bath boasts a tray ceiling and onyx covering the floors, whirlpool tub surround, steam shower surround, wainscot and countertop on the twin vanity and dressing table.
