1 High Meadow Ct - Old Brookville, New York
Old Brookville. Borrowing heavily from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie School Style of architecture, this stunning six-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath contemporary, ensconced on over two magnificent acres, offers a unique open and airy ambiance mellowed by warm wood and earthy stone influences. Secluded by lush shrubbery and mature trees, it enjoys sweeping emerald lawns, accented by specimen trees and flowering bushes, that enfold a large front circular drive and a fabulous rear entertainment complex. This comprises expansive veranda, deck, and patio overlooking an oversized inground pool with brick surround and diving board. On a tree-lined cul-de-sac street shared with equally grand residences, this exceptional home is in Old Brookville, an incorporated village covering about four square miles in the heart of Long Island’s fabled “Gold Coast” and about 25 miles from Manhattan. It offers its residents its own police force and convenience to the Americana at Manhasset, Wheatley Plaza, the Nassau Museum of Art, Long Island Railroad, golf, boating, public and private schools, and equestrian facilities. Framed by beautiful plantings, a wide portico welcomes guests into a spacious foyer, with Travertine floors and floating staircase, that flows seamlessly into a grand two-story living room. A soaring wall of windows floods the space with sunshine and, along with a massive oak fireplace, carries the eye up to the high ceiling. Hardwood floors extend into a large dining space adorned with walls of natural-wood shelving, ideal for displaying collections and books. Both rooms open through glass doors to the rear veranda, a delightful shady area ideal for as fresco dining. The bright and cheery adjoining eat-in kitchen features ample sleek wood cabinetry, many large windows, hi-hat and under-cabinet lighting, a center island with seating and five-burner gas cooktop with vent, and stainless-steel double-oven, dishwasher, and refrigerator with in-door ice and water. Ceramic tile floors reach into the spacious breakfast nook boasting three walls of windows and access to the veranda. The southern wing of the home houses the powder room, a roomy study with floor-length windows, and the master suite. This palatial getaway encompasses a study alcove, spacious bedroom with wall of floor-length windows, a large walk-in closet, and a Travertine master bath with jetted tub, shower, vanity, commode, and bidet. The northern wing contains a guest suite with nursery and full bath plus access to the basement, side entry, and garage. Overlooking the living room, the upstairs foyer accesses a bedroom with bath en suite plus three additional bedrooms, a bath, and second set of stairs. The full finished basement creates great space for entertainment and storage. It includes a huge rec room/gym, bedroom, study, full bath, kitchenette, laundry, and access to the rear patio and pool. Offering ample room for living large and entertaining on a grand scale, this sizable, sun-swept home is ready for you to make it your own.
