28 Shadetree Ln - Roslyn Heights, New York
Enjoy luxury resort-style living year-round in this gorgeous 2016 Hampton-style, cedar-shake and stone, six-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath Colonial only thirty minutes from Manhattan in the Country Club area of Roslyn Heights. Standing majestically on a third acre of exquisite professional landscaping boasting a plethora of specimen plantings and a riot of color, this nearly new architectural gem is an entertainer’s delight with a bright and spacious floor plan superbly finished with the finest in craftsmanship and appointments plus an exciting venue for summer entertaining in its secluded “tropical paradise” rear property. Upon entering the gated rear property, you will be enthralled by floral splendor lining a bluestone walk leading you to an inground, ozone, heated pool with expansive bluestone surround. A large patio with outdoor kitchen provides ample space for lounging and al fresco dining. Manicured lawns, lush plantings, a privacy fence, plus triple fountain flowing into the pool from a raised planter with tropical plants and palm trees, may make you feel like you’re on an isle in the South Seas. Adjoining the Wheatley Hills Golf Course, the scenic community of Roslyn Country Club is aptly named. Its sidewalks invite pleasant strolls along its peaceful lanes with beautiful homes. It offers easy access to premier shopping including the Americana at Manhasset and Roosevelt Field, the largest and most successful mall in the state, and to parks, schools, Hofstra University, golf, boating, delightful village shops and restaurants, estate museums, beaches, and more. Visually appealing, with its garage carriage doors, corner tower, stacked-stone chimney, and oversized windows and doors, this magnificent 4,200-square-foot home (not counting its full finished basement) welcomes friends into a sun-drenched two-story foyer with a wide staircase, custom powder room, fielded-panel walls, plus crown molding and gleaming five-inch oak floors that flow throughout the first floor. Combining the classic center-hall layout with a more up-to-date open floor plan brings Traditional style into the Twenty-first Century. A spacious, sunny living room with fielded-panel wainscot, tower room alcove, and wet bar with wine cooler, opens through wide pocket French doors into a sun-drenched den. Offering a gas fireplace, with marble surround and overmantel wired for television, the room is illuminated by two walls of large windows and French doors to the rear patio and pool. It is open completely to the breakfast area (with sliders to the patio) and the sleek, gorgeous eat-in kitchen. Unique in design, this chef’s haven cleverly positions its oversized Sub-Zero stainless-steel refrigerator, Wolf gas six-burner range, double-oven range, Bosch dishwasher, Sharp microwave drawer, and stainless-steel farm sink overlooking the pool, all on the same side of the large center island with seating area. Extensive, high-end Shaker cabinetry, with thick Carrara marble countertop and Carrara backsplash, wraps around the room and into a spacious butler’s pantry. This flows seamlessly into the gracious formal dining room that is open to the foyer and features fielded-panel wainscot, oversized front windows, and ample space for large dinner parties. A service area off the kitchen includes two walk-in pantries, a spacious staff/guest room with bath en suite, and access to the attached, insulated two-car garage and to basement stairs with door to the backyard. The second floor boasts oak floors, crown moldings, tray ceilings, laundry center, and five inviting bedrooms with high ceilings. Entered through its own foyer with tray ceiling, the palatial and serene master suite will pamper you with a sunny and spacious bedroom boasting an octagonal tower-room sitting alcove, two large walk-in closets, and a lavish Carrara marble master bath with water closet and twin vanity, where you can luxuriate in your marble shower with seat and multiple shower heads or your freestanding soaking tub. A wide hallway leads to the remainder of this floor, which offers two spacious bedroom/bath suites, a third bedroom with private entrance to a hall bath, and a fourth bedroom presently serving as a study. The expansive full, finished basement, with high ceilings and plumbing for a future bath, offers ample space for any number of activities including a gym, media center, game area, and more. Plus, it offers easy access to the pool area at one end and an egress window at the other. Offering all the beauty, luxury, and entertainment venues of the Hamptons, yet so convenient to Manhattan and airports, this rare and custom showplace is a “better than new” complete home that requires nothing but your family to love and enjoy the lifestyle it provides.
