108 Woods Ct - Old Brookville, New York
Old Brookville. Full of bling and sophistication, this exciting five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath, 2014, Hampton-style Colonial not only offers three floors of comfort and high style on a beautiful acre property but also, an ideal location on a winding cul-de-sac street in Old Brookville. This residential “Gold Coast” village of about 2,000 residents, with its own police department and many grand estates, is one of the wealthiest communities in America. It offers ready access to great shopping (like the Americana at Manhasset), restaurants, night life, beaches, boating, golf, mansion museums, universities, private and public schools, renowned hospitals, major arteries, and train station. It is 25 miles from Manhattan and just south of the Locust Valley area that those in the know call the “New Hamptons.” Approached by a tree-lined driveway and brick walk, this stunning home welcomes you with a stone-faced portico. It opens to a charming center-hall, two-story foyer where sunlight entering through a high Palladian-style window dances across gleaming hardwood floors (that extend throughout the home), fielded-panel wainscot, and elegant staircase. French doors open to an inviting study to the left, while on the right, the style of an exquisite entablature framing entry to the sun-drenched living room is echoed in the mantel of its gas fireplace. The stunning formal dining, open to the living room, kitchen, and foyer, enjoys a dramatic coffered ceiling and two sunny windows. To the rear of the foyer, a perpendicular hallway leading to the service area, opens to the fabulous cook’s dream eat-in kitchen. Ample fine-furniture-like custom cabinetry with easy-care quartz countertop and marble backsplash include a center island with seating area and a custom hood above the gas range, one of a set of high-end stainless-steel appliances. A back staircase is in the sunny breakfast area that opens through sliding-glass doors to the rear patio. Between meal prep and breakfast areas, a wide doorway leads into a delightful rear family room that boasts a vaulted ceiling, wood-burning fireplace flanked by double windows, and French doors opening to the patio. Besides a walk-in pantry in the kitchen, the service hall offers two more closet/pantries and a coat closet as well as access to a lovely powder room, mudroom, attached two-car garage, and guest suite with full bath. Off a spacious second floor landing, the glamorous master suite features a high tray ceiling, wraparound corner windows, two walk-in closets, and a luxury bath with twin vanity, whirlpool tub, and frameless-glass-enclosed shower with built-in seat. This floor also includes a large walk-in linen closet, a bedroom with bath en suite, a hall bath with twin vanity and large shower, and two more bedrooms, one quite large with big walk-in closet. The finished basement is like a whole new world and is decorated in modern glam – an entertainer’s paradise! It includes a media room, party room with kitchenette, gym, playroom, full bath, large laundry room with sink, cabinetry, and two washer and dryer sets, a utility area, ample storage space, and an egress window. If you love the sophistication of Manhattan but need more elbow room, this spectacular home is for you. Its sweeping lawns and towering trees offer ample space for the possible addition of a pool and/or tennis court. In such an ideal location offering so much to do and enjoy, you will feel like you are on vacation 365 days a year.
