Rich Cribs: Old Westbury basement bonus, and more
The lower level of this Old Westbury mansion is the “ultimate playground for adults and children,” says listing agent Maria Babaev of Laffey Fine Homes.
On the market for $5.35 million, the seven-bedroom, 8½-bath house comes with a carpeted theater featuring a built-in projector, intricate lighting and reclining chairs. The space also has a home “food stand” with a popcorn machine and old-school arcade room. The basement -- with its 10-foot ceilings and two large staircases leading in from the first floor -- features a gym for fitness needs.
The house is managed by a smart system, which allows a user to control all the lights, music, cameras and alarms with a few buttons. Other aspects include floor-to-ceiling windows, a patio, tennis court, heated pool and en suite bedrooms. -- Elizabeth Gyori
SHIPSHAPE IN SAG HARBOR. Deck railings and subtle curved lines reminiscent of a ship adorn the exterior of a modern post-and-beam house in Sag Harbor Village on the market for $3.295 million.
The home’s entire second floor is dedicated to the master suite, with continuous hard pine wood floors and clear cedar cathedral beamed ceilings throughout the space -- which includes a great room, with wet bar and gas fireplace and an en suite master bedroom that accesses a Juliet balcony overlooking a marina.
Downstairs, the L-shaped open floor plan includes an eat-in kitchen, dining room and family room with a wood-burning fireplace and walls of sliding glass doors leading to a large deck, outdoor fire pit and heated in-ground pool.
The main level has an additional three bedrooms and two baths, including a guest room bath with a sauna. The .85-acre wooded property is listed with Gioia DiPaola of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. -- Virginia Dunleavy
