This circa-1946 Oyster Bay Cove Tudor includes trim pieces that were salvaged from the Charles A. Platt-designed Elms mansion in nearby Glen Cove, its listing agent says. The asking price is $1.199 million.

Woodworking, trim, doors and paneling in the foyer, living and dining rooms were gathered from the estate home, says listing agent Annemarie Chernack of Signature Premier Properties.

Floor-to ceiling glass doors between the living room and den are also original to The Elms, which historians say was built around 1912 for clothier and stockbroker Clifford V. Brokaw.

Wood floors are found throughout the home, in which the plaster-walled first floor contains a formal living room with nearly floor-to-ceiling windows and a fireplace mantle with carvings of birds, fruit and pomegranate.

There are also a formal dining room, a den, two bedrooms and a full bath. Upstairs, the master suite has two large walk-in closets.

The flat, hilltop 2.3-acre parcel includes a patio, gardens and specimen trees such as hollies and Japanese maple. It is a short distance from the site of the Tranquility estate, where President Theodore Roosevelt’s parents maintained a summer home.
