This 8,500-square-foot Upper Brookville mansion is “on pointe” in more ways than one. Listed for $5.6 million, the six-bedroom, five-bath house on five acres contains a ballet studio that the owner built for his daughter, says listing agent Clifford Packingham of EVLV Realty.
The studio is part of a lower-level entertainment area that includes a full bathroom, children’s playrooms and a full bedroom. For the adults, there’s also a wet bar.
A second bar on the first floor is next to a green marble bathroom, which has 24-karat gold fixtures and a bone china sink.
The opulent tone is set when pulling through the weathered-brick, tree-lined gate and approaching the courtyard driveway. Guests enter through a two-story marble foyer with a custom staircase. The house contains four marble fireplaces, and ceilings are at least 10 feet high throughout the first floor, Packingham says.
A 29-by-22-foot eat-in kitchen includes a dining area and a breakfast nook with windows overlooking the grounds. Appliances include a natural-gas cooktop, a custom double grill in the kitchen island, double ovens and a Subzero refrigerator. There is also a formal dining room, a den, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a laundry on the first floor. The living room is accented with a gold-leaf painting in the picture molding.
Upstairs, an 18-by-26-foot master-bedroom suite includes a custom marble fireplace, a walk-in closet, a makeup room and a full marble bathroom. The floor has an additional three bedrooms and three full bathrooms; a flight of stairs leads to the third-floor bonus room, which is currently in use as a home gym.
Professionally landscaped grounds include vast grassy fields, a southward-facing outdoor terrace with motorized awnings, a 40-by-40-foot in-ground custom gunite pool and a tennis court. A heated three-car garage is attached to the home.
