Expansive entertaining spaces anchor the design of a Contemporary-style six-bedroom, 6 1⁄2 -bath Dix Hills home listed for $1.599 million.
The 2.1-acre parcel includes a backyard with brick patios, maintenance-free decking and an 11-foot deep diving pool that waterfalls into a second in-ground pool. The landscaped, tree-filled property also contains a tennis court, hot tub and outdoor kitchen/bar under a pergola.
“For the area, it’s really unusual. It’s its own mini-estate,” says listing agent Madeline Camay of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
Built in 1984 by architect Donley H. Murray, the approximately 7,400-square-foot home features décor by interior designer Carolyn Miller. A great room with vaulted ceilings features a gas fireplace, wet bar and pool table; its large size and open flow are found in rooms throughout, Camay says.
A guest wing with a separate entrance includes a great room with a movie screen, office, en-suite bedroom, additional bedroom and full bath.
The home’s custom eat-in kitchen includes pullouts, a large kitchen island and eat-in portion that shares a double-sided fireplace with the formal dining room.
Upstairs, a master-bedroom suite contains a bathroom and office. Two bedrooms on the level share a full bath; a fourth has access to a walk-in attic. The level also includes a wardrobe room, Camay says.
The finished lower level has a separate entrance and includes a playroom and home gym; the home has central air conditioning, in-ground sprinklers and an attached three-car garage.
