A 10,000-square-foot Old Westbury Colonial manor once owned by the son of Fortunoff department store founders Max and Clara Fortunoff has undergone a price cut.
First listed in 2015 for $3.95 million, the asking price for the circa-1924 eight-bedroom, 7.5-bath home with eight fireplaces is now $2.8 million, says listing agent Janet Berookhim of Laffey Real Estate.
Set on 2.17 acres, the pillar-lined home once owned by Alan and Helene Fortunoff includes a reception hall with black-and-white tile floors and a dome-paneled staircase spiraling upward to the second and third floors.
Built-ins, large windows and a fireplace are found in the formal living room. The formal dining room includes French doors to the property, and a large eat-in kitchen contains a secondary staircase. The first floor also boasts a sunroom.
Each finished level includes at least one bedroom. There are five bedrooms and five full baths on the second floor, which includes the master bedroom suite. The third floor has a movie theater, two bedrooms and a full bath.
The home has central air conditioning, 16-zone oil heat and an attached three-car garage, as well as in-ground sprinklers. Manicured grounds include a large brick patio.
