A multitude of Manhasset Bay views are available from within this circa-1908 mansion in Plandome Manor now listed for $10.68 million.
“There is always something magical about seeing the ever-changing bayscapes with nature that you get to enjoy from all of the principal rooms,” listing agent Traci Clinton of Douglas Elliman Real Estate says of the 5,611-square-foot home, which began as a summer cottage.
Following a two-year renovation completed in 2015, the six-bedroom, 61⁄2-bath home on 1.32 acres is filled with intricate architectural details and modern technology. Marvin windows, custom French-style solid oak doors, wide-plank white oak floors, architectural moldings and custom cabinetry are found throughout the home, Clinton says.
An open floor plan includes a formal dining room with coffered oak ceilings and a Nanawall glass door system, set between the dining room and a screened porch, that opens and allows bay breezes into the home.
A gourmet kitchen trimmed in custom oak cabinetry has Calacatta marble surfaces and beamed ceiling treatments. High-end appliances include a LaCanche French range, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, a pair of Miele dishwashers and a wine cooler and wet bar. A breakfast nook includes a curved brick arch ceiling.
The master bedroom suite — one of five bedrooms on the second floor — has 20-foot-high trestle oak-beamed ceilings, a walk-in closet with custom oak cabinetry, a limestone gas fireplace and a private deck. An en-suite bath includes a Waterworks steam shower and tub, a double vanity and limestone floors.
A Nest thermostat system, closed-circuit cameras, a Sonos sound system and lights can be controlled and programmed by smartphone, Clinton says. There is also 11-zone radiant heat, a full-house water filtration system, a heated two-car attached garage and a generator.
Outdoor comforts include a 250-foot dock, a three-tiered cascading bluestone patio, a 22-by-42-foot in-ground, heated saltwater pool and spa, an outdoor fireplace and a summer kitchen with a Wolf grill/rotisserie, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a bluestone counter. The grounds are planted with specimen trees, Leland cypress hedging, boxwoods, white carpet roses and hydrangeas; an herb and vegetable garden is planted near the kitchen.
