This Old Westbury estate with 7,500 square feet of living space on 4.19 acres, all listed for $2.395 million, was built in the glory days of Long Island’s Gold Coast in 1925.
The Georgian-style manor house with a weathered, whitewashed brick exterior was once part of the Dodge Estate and boasts five bedrooms and 3 1⁄2 bathrooms. There are a total of seven bedrooms and 6 1⁄2 bathrooms in three structures.
Black and white marble in a checkerboard pattern adorns the floor of the foyer, which has dentil moldings and recessed lighting. Nearby, a living room includes a marble fireplace and museum-like floor-to-ceiling French doors, says listing agent Ellen Kim of Laffey International Realty.
Raised English walnut paneling and a marble fireplace are found in a library with a tiled powder room and a guest closet. Dentil moldings, numerous fireplaces, recessed lighting and pegged, wide-beam oak floors are found throughout the home, Kim says.
The formal dining room has views of gardens and a loggia on the property through six sets of French doors, and also has a fireplace and heavy crown moldings. A kitchen with a spiral staircase includes reverse granite countertops, bluestone flooring, a dual fireplace and stainless steel appliances.
Upstairs, a master suite has a dual fireplace and a master bathroom with garden and pool views. Manicured lawns, a meadow and mature-growth trees are found on the property, which features a heated pool with a bluestone surround.
A tile courtyard is situated between the main home and a two-story guest cottage, which opens to a greenhouse and has a kitchenette, bedroom/living room and full bath on the first floor. Upstairs, there is a loft and a bathroom. A one-bedroom duplex apartment with a media center is above a detached four-car garage.
