Manicured lawns, lush gardens, towering trees, walking trails — and a pagoda — provide the backdrop for this six-bedroom, 6.5-bath Glen Head center-hall Colonial listed for $2.8 million.
The 4.18-acre parcel also boasts a gazebo and a tennis court to go with an outdoor shower and a heated in-ground gunite swimming pool with a brick patio.
“It is unusual in that area to have that much property and to have those amenities,” says listing agent Christina Porter of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
A foyer flows through rounded archways into principal rooms. A formal dining room has a built-in corner cabinet and original wallpaper. Straight ahead from the front door, French doors provide views of the grounds and gardens. To the right, there is a living room with a fireplace.
“It’s a wide, beautiful way of presenting the entrance into the next room,” Porter says of the arches. Original hardwood floors are found throughout, as are wide moldings.
A library is lined with built-in bookshelves and opens to a covered porch. The gourmet kitchen with an island is next to a family room that has French doors to a patio. An office next to the den is currently used as an artist’s studio, Porter says.
From the foyer, a sweeping staircase leads to the second floor, which has an en-suite master bedroom with an office, four bedrooms and four full baths. The third floor contains a bedroom, full bath, cedar closet and storage.
A finished basement includes a fireplace, a half-bath and a wine cellar. The home also includes a two-car attached garage.
