The 4.5-acre, 7,440-square-foot brick French Provincial style manse features seven bedrooms (including a first floor master suite) and six bathrooms.

Much of the original estate's beautiful landscaping and elegant stone balustrades still remain, as does a greenhouse. Some modern-day additions include a free form black bottom lake pool and a Har Tru tennis court.

The property has been written about in various books, including “Long Island Country Houses and Their Architects, 1860-1940” and “Great Houses of New York."
