Called Hazeldean Manor, this Sands Point mansion, on the market for $4.56 million, was built around 1906 for investment banker James Lee Laidlaw, Sands Point’s first mayor. The incorporation papers for the village of Sands Point were signed in the home’s living room. Laidlaw and his wife, Harriet, also were leaders in the women’s suffrage movement.
A couple purchased the property from the Laidlaw family in 1995, restoring and renovating the Mediterranean-style house. They added a family room and a three-car garage, expanded the rear stone patio and installed a pool on the three-acre property. The home retains extensive woodwork, floor-to-ceiling windows and moldings.
The eight-bedroom home has seven full and two half-bathrooms.
