Forget leaving Long Island and battling traffic on the New York State Thruway to vacation in the Adirondacks. This Upper Brookville estate offers the luxury of a retreat in the mountains without even leaving the property.
Aside from a large main house with plenty of luxury amenities, this 5-acre property, on the market for $6.8 million, also boasts a 3,500-square-foot Adirondack-style cabin with a wraparound mahogany porch overlooking an infinity pool, hot tub and waterfalls.
The cabin, built five years ago as a guesthouse, has three bedrooms, including a master guest suite with a fireplace and his and hers changing rooms. Reached by car, or a natural rock path, it comes fully furnished with custom pieces crafted upstate.
“As you sit by the cabin, you feel like you’re in the Adirondacks,” says listing broker Roberta Feuerstein of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “It’s really such a complete escape.”
The estate is named Twin Pines for the pair of trees that frame the entrance of the 11,500-square-foot main home, and was built in 1996. It includes five bedroom suites, as well as a gym, wine-tasting room, library and home theater.
