Noted architectural firm George B. Post & Sons designed this Tuscan villa in the middle of Oyster Bay Cove, on the market for $1.289 million. The four-bedroom home, with warm ocher walls and French blue shutters, was built in 1962 on two acres as a summer home, says listing agent Kimberly Bancroft of Piping Rock Associates Inc.
"It feels like you're in Italy or Santa Fe, New Mexico," Bancroft says. "It's something that you just don't see."
Both the living room and master bedroom have French doors that open onto an outdoor courtyard with colorful gardens and a wisteria-covered pergola. The living room also has 10-foot ceilings and arched windows overlooking the property.
The home comes with beach and mooring rights.
