3 Chestnut Ct - Old Westbury, New York
Old Westbury. Set back on a gorgeous, lush two-acre property, this unique five-bedroom, three-full and two-half bath, brick Tudor may surprise you to know it was built in 2004. With many of the charming elements of houses built in the early Twentieth Century, it creates a warm and nostalgic ambiance with its steep gable and hip roof lines, its casement and arched windows, and an interior with richly stained moldings, wide-plank hardwood floors, spacious gathering places, superb custom artisan embellishments, and massive stone fireplaces - one elegant, one rustic, and one modern. Set far back from a cul-de-sac street serving a total of five luxury properties, it is conveniently located in the southeast corner of Old Westbury. Perfect for commuting to Manhattan via the nearby freeways and train station, it is close to premier shopping, dining, golf, mansion museums, equestrian trails, and renowned hospitals. Enjoying a sense of seclusion, this stately home enjoys a triangular property with a magical pristine woodland on one side and sweeping lawns edged by mature evergreens on the other. A long crushed-stone driveway provides access to an attached three-car garage tucked behind the home providing additional privacy to a spacious level lawn just waiting for you to add a pool and patio to your liking. Impressive doors with circular leaded-glass insets welcome you into a grand, two-story entrance foyer featuring gleaming travertine floors, with inset medallion, richly stained millwork, and a graceful floating staircase ascending beneath a massive arched window to a second-floor balcony. To your right, next to a stunning glass-tile powder room, an elevator awaits to take you to second and basement floors. On the left, past a sunny study and guest closet, you will enter a spacious living room boasting hardwood floors, open-beam vaulted ceiling, and a massive stone fireplace reminiscent of an Adirondack lodge. With closet, plumbing for a wet bar, and French doors to the rear property, it creates a perfect space for entertaining. So does the extraordinary formal dining room that is entered from the rear of the foyer. Superb craftsmanship is exhibited in its Greek key inlaid hardwood floors and its elegant marble fireplace illuminated by a wall of windows and French doors opening to the rear property. The adjoining eat-in-kitchen is a cook’s delight featuring ample furniture-like cherry cabinetry with marble countertop, peninsula with seating, decorative tile and glass backsplash, under-cabinet lighting, and high-end stainless-steel appliances. Hardwood floors flow into the sunny breakfast area with French doors to the rear property and access to the attached three-car garage. Here, stairs descend to the full, finished basement. From the sun-swept second floor balcony the palatial master suite includes an entry hall with access to two walk-in closets, and a spacious master bedroom boasting two dormered sitting nooks, a large arched window, a fireplace, and a luxury marble bath with steam shower, large whirlpool tub beneath an arched window, sitting area, and twin dresser vanity. This level also features a laundry room, a lovely bedroom with bath en suite and large closet, plus two additional bedrooms sharing a hall bath. One bedroom provides attic access. Boasting large sunny rooms, high ceilings, hardwood floors, and ensconced on two magnificent acres convenient to all the North Shore has to offer, this modern interpretation of an English Tudor invites you to let your imagination soar as you transform it into the home of your dreams.
