PARK IT HERE. Automobile aficionados might want to take a look at a brick Colonial in Old Brookville Village on the market for $1.995 million. Along with six bedrooms and 5½ baths on 2-plus acres, there’s an attached 10-car garage — five tandem bays — with a separate temperature control to protect them.
Seller Pauline D’Chiutiis says the garage was customized by her father, “an automobile connoisseur from the era of European race cars,” and once held his exotic car collection.
Above the garage is a large living area with a bathroom and an outdoor terrace. An enclosed breezeway connects both to the main house, where there is a second garage roomy enough to accommodate two cars or a hoist to work on an engine.
Bart Bleiweiss, co-listing agent with Cristina Callegari at Keller Williams of Greater Nassau, describes the rest of the home, built in 1968, as “truly one of a kind . . . a very warm and gracious house.”
The first floor has a great room with a vaulted ceiling and a den/game room with pool table. Oversized windows are featured throughout, and the eat-in kitchen has a brick coal oven. -- Virginia Dunleavy
LIGHTS, CAMERA. A Hollywood-style theater is one of many highlights of an Old Westbury home listed for $2.988 million.
“The audio system, the video format, the comfort and lighting, were all designed to meet the criteria of a Hollywood director in a Hollywood screening room,” says owner and developer Eric Schwartz. “There are remote blackout screens, movie screen masking technology, and special lenses that allow the viewer to experience the chariot scenes in ‘Ben Hur,’ for instance, as it was intended, in an ultrawide, dynamic screen format.”
The house is on 2 acres. There are three fireplaces, wood floors, a gunite pool, two teak decks and a Har-Tru tennis court. It is listed with Ellen Zipes of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty and Maria Babaev of Laffey Fine Homes. -- Gigi Berman Aharon
