Reality TV star Bethenny Frankel comes to Huntington Friday to sign copies of her latest book, "A Place of Yes." In an interview with Newsday about the book, she revealed that she once lived with her mother and stepfather in Old Westbury. "It's actually the house Howard Stern’s former wife lives in. Howard Stern bought it from us,'' she said.
That house is not for sale, but there are many others on the market in the North Shore community:
This expanded Cape Cod-style home on a shy-acre is being offered for $859,000. Built in 1954, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home comes with a fireplace and an in-ground pool. “The residence is also presently being used as a church and can accommodate 100 people,” says listing agent Joseph Turowski of Keller Williams Realty Landmark.
This seven-acre estate built in 1977 by designer Walter Uhl and completely renovated and expanded in 1999 is currently on the market for $5.795 million, down from its original asking price of $7 million. The slate-roofed home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two half-baths. Other amenities include an in-ground heated pool, a Har-Tru tennis court and a putting green. Anna Alyskewycz of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate is handling the listing.
One of the few remaining Gold Coast Estates built in the early 1900s is on the market for $10.8 million. The four-acre sprawling compound, which has kept much of its original grandeur, has 10 bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, three half-bathrooms, 11 fireplaces, a three-car garage and three guest cottages. “Just an exquisite-exquisite home throughout designed by noted architect Thomas Hastings, who also designed the New York Public Library,” says listing agent Ellen Zipes of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty.
