Rumor has it that Elizabeth Taylor -- yes, The Elizabeth Taylor -- once stayed at this sprawling new-on-the-market manse in Huntington while filming a movie.
“Far Horizons," appropriately named for its year–round sweeping views of the Long Island Sound and Connecticut, is listed for $3,675 million.
The story is that Taylor slept at the home while making "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof," which was filmed in 1958 at the Cole estate in Oyster Bay.
The stately English Tudor sits on two acres in the heart of the very sought-after Huntington Bay area. The home was built in the 1930s by Charles and Vera Hammann, who blended
their own finishing touches into the interior design and landscaping. It has six bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and includes a free-form in-ground gunite pool as well as a gazebo.
“This very special property incorporates a time of romance, old-world elegance, architectural detailing coupled with the modern amenities of today,” says listing agent Jyll Kata of the East Norwich office of Prudential Douglas Elliman – The North Shore Group. She is listing the property with Edward D’Ambrosio.
