Rich Cribs: Old Westbury home was Quaker farmhouse in 1805
From the inside, it’s hard to believe that this Old Westbury home was built in the early 19th century.
Originally a circa-1805 Quaker farmhouse that was part of the William W. Cocks estate, the eight-bedroom, 5½-bathroom Colonial, on the market for $2.988 million, has been updated with many modern amenities, including a roomy chef’s kitchen with granite countertops and top-of-the-line appliances, as well as new bathrooms.
There are still plenty of antique details, such as chandelier ceiling medallions, decorative moldings and carved fireplace mantels.
The house was once owned by George Morton Levy, owner of Roosevelt Raceway, says listing agent Michael Berman of Automatic Real Estate Associates.
The outside has a massive front and side portico with columns, and there is also a pool, tennis court and cabana on more than 4 flat acres of property.
