Rolling lawns, a guest cottage and an in-ground gunite pool with pool house are just a few of the features of this 9.66-acre Mill Neck house, which is on the market for $4.499 million.
Renovated and expanded, the original part of the 1929 carriage house was on a former Vanderbilt family estate, says listing agent Danielle Laria, of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty. The great room -- the main section of the original structure -- has soaring ceilings with wood beams and a fireplace, while the library is appointed with custom woodwork, built-in shelving and another fireplace.
Distressed wide plank flooring and extensive moldings are found throughout the 10-room house.
Right outside the house is a bluestone patio and a brick courtyard terrace. Trees and ornamental plantings are woven throughout. A gardener's shed attached to the pool house is large enough to be made into another guesthouse, Laria says. The pool house has indoor and outdoor showers.
The guest accommodations above the detached four-car garage have their own entrance.
