You can have it your way in Old Westbury….Gold Coast mansion with 21-plus acres for $17.75 million, or the mansion on seven acres for $4.795 million.
The A.C. Bostwick estate in Old Westbury, which had been in the same family for a century, is on the market, listed with Ludmilla and Michael Stanco of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
The property was once owned by A.C. and Eleanor Bostwick, and was sold to international developers after the 2004 death of Mrs. Bostwick at age 100. A.C. Bostwick, who died in 1980, bred and raised thoroughbred horses on the estate. He was a well-known amateur steeplechase rider, and one of his horses won the 1931 Preakness Stakes. His brother Pete Bostwick was a steeplechase rider and polo player.
The 1888 Georgian Revival manor house has 18 rooms, seven full and two half baths, a formal dining room, a library and a music room with carved fireplace. The master suite has its own private wing with fireplace and enclosed summer porch, two dressing rooms, each with baths and closets, and a sitting room with a fireplace and full bath.
The estate is on the market for $17.75 million, but has also been approved for a four-lot subdivision — two four-acre lots, one five-acre lot, and the seven-acre lot with the manor house. The asking price for the seven-acre lot with the house is $4.795 million.
