Situated inside this Kings Point Colonial listed for $8.8 million is a room the owners call the “Mini White House Library.”
Reason being? It looks similar to the library located in the soon-to-be home of either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.
The library’s dark wood walls are adorned with built-in bookshelves and arched windows. Wide-plank hardwood floors run through the room, which includes one of the home’s five fireplaces. The library is also equipped with a full bar befitting of a commander-in-chief.
Even the exterior of the nine-bedroom, eight-bathroom home somewhat resembles that of the White House. There is one notable exception: It’s not a white house. The exterior is brick. The structural design, though, with its symmetrical windows and columned portico, is similar to the home at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C.
The foyer features a circular wooden staircase that leads to a second-floor landing with a balcony. The 1927 home includes a granite kitchen and formal dining room. The living room leads to an indoor pool surrounded by windows and skylights. Overlooking the pool is a second-floor sitting area, which is accessed by a spiral staircase and leads to a marble bathroom.
The full basement features an entertainment room, sauna and full bathroom.
The 1.47-acre property is set on the highest elevation in Kings Point and offers views of Manhasset Bay, says listing agent Huailing Deng of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
