Port Washington's Cliffhanger house is on the market for $1.995 million.
The midcentury modern home was built in 1964 by its original owner, architect and engineer John Mascioni. Sellers Stuart and Jill Gold, who spent nearly a decade renovating the house, say they fell in love with the .31-acre property at first sight.
The 4,500-square-foot home has 11 rooms, including a third-floor master suite, offices, a home theater and a gym. Highlights include a natural-stone rock garden and a rear deck.
It got its name Cliffhanger because of its location. "We named it that just because it’s on a hill," says Jill Gold. "Half the house is hanging off a hill. We’ve named each one of the houses we’ve owned. Our house out in the Hamptons, we call it the 'Great Escape.'"
Inside, the home feels like a treehouse, they say.
“Sitting in the living room, looking out the 8-foot-high windows in the summer, you can’t even see your neighbors," says Stuart Gold. "But in the winter, you can see Manhasset Bay through the bare trees.”
