3C Foxwood Rd - Great Neck, New York
KINGS POINT. With views of the sparkling waters of Long Island Sound, just six-hundred feet away, and gentle summer breezes wafting through the trees, just feel the stresses of the day melt away as you sit with a glass of wine on your bluestone patio. Or take a dip in your swimming pool that overlooks a scenic pond. Perhaps some waterfowl will drop by for a visit. Such will be your pleasure in this marvelous home just minutes away from Manhattan. Located on a cul-de-sac road in Kings Point, this delightful six-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath, center-hall, brick Georgian Colonial welcomes guests along a hedgerow-lined drive to a circular courtyard and imposing two-story portico with Corinthian columns. Offering high ceilings and sun-swept, spacious rooms, the interior is ideal for gracious entertaining with easy movement from the grand marble foyer with graceful bridal staircase and elegant moldings, into the inviting living room featuring a striking Zebra Wood gas fireplace, massive crown molding, and herringbone hardwood floors that flow into the library. Here, a paneled wall with ceiling-high bookcases matches the rich tones of a coffered ceiling while a huge triple-window floods the room with distant water vistas. Open to this area, the bright sophisticated den says, “Come and stay awhile.” A wall paneled in Macassar ebony wood frames two floor-length windows framing a giant, Caesar Stone, gas fireplace beneath a large television. The adjoining wall opens through sliders to the expansive rear patio, which overlooks the pool and pond. Through French doors off the foyer, the chic formal dining room, with triple window and fielded panel wainscoting, opens to the spacious eat-in-kitchen. This sunny room was designed for entertaining, featuring a large workspace with sleek, granite-topped cabinetry, two separate workspaces with cooktops, a center island, and matching, full-size, two Subzero refrigerators and freezer. Tile floors flow past a planning center into the breakfast area that opens through sliders to the patio. A service hallway leads to the laundry room, full bath, side entrance, walk-in pantry, staff bedroom, and attached three-car garage. On the second floor, the palatial master suite boasts a huge bedroom with custom rose wood gas fireplace, many closets including two custom-fitted four-season, walk-ins (one is huge), a lavish marble bath with soaking tub/shower, a second shower, and a large sauna. Also off the spacious landing are two bedrooms with baths en suite, two bedrooms with walk-in closets that share a bath. All are beautifully appointed. The finished basement offers ample space for play or entertaining with wood floors, a generous recreation room, and a large bonus room with windows between. Great Neck is a peninsula on Long Island’s north shore known for its diverse population, cultural activities, and many high-profile residents. Valued for its proximity to Manhattan and its award-winning schools, it has been the home to such notables as Paul Newman, Francis Ford Coppola, F. Scott Fitzgerald (whose “Great Gatsby” was based on the area), Harry F. Sinclair, and Walter P. Chrysler, whose estate is today the U. S. Merchant Marine Academy. It offers all the recreational facilities, dining, and shopping experiences for which Long Island’s North Shore is famous.
