If you happen to have $6.25 million burning a hole in your bank account, you might just be interested in the waterfront estate owned by one-time Rep. Frederic Rene Coudert Jr. Given its history -- the estate was built in 1930 -- the house carries a whiff of Gatsby-esque glamour.

“This is a one-of-a-kind residence,” says listing agent Anne E. Kerr of Piping Rock Associates in Locust Valley. “The water is captivating, and the plantings and gardens are beautiful. There’s also a pool with extensive decking. It’s a wonderful house for entertaining, both inside and out.”

Coudert's family still owns the property. Coudert died in 1972.

Overlooking Oyster Bay Harbor, there is a main house complete with four bedrooms and several fireplaces, plus a five-bedroom guesthouse, not to mention superb water views and a 228-foot deep-water dock that might have served Daisy just fine, thanks.
