OLD WESTBURY. Located in the heart of Old Westbury and dating back to the beginning of the “Great Gatsby” era of the early twentieth Century, this charming white-washed brick manor presents an exceptional opportunity for the perceptive buyer. With the ambiance of an English gentleman’s country estate, the 4.2-acre property offers sweeping lawns, mature gardens, and towering trees enfolding an enclave of three residences, a 4-car heated garage, and an inground Gunite pool. Approached by over 500 feet of tree-lined driveway, the estate welcomes guests with a cobblestone entry, and a circular drive leading to a detached 4-car garage. The main house, with its columned portico, and an inviting rocking-chair front porch, overlooks a gentle hillside with steps leading down to a sparkling inground Gunite pool with brick surround, estate fencing and hedgerows. Next to the manor house, a walled courtyard leads to a charming 2-story guest house with a wall of windows in the living room, a kitchenette, two bedrooms, two baths, and a large greenhouse extending off to the rear. The driveway continues past the guest house and circles around to the detached four-car garage’s lower level. Above the stalls, a one-bedroom apartment with kitchen, full bathroom and sitting room with a fireplace, opens onto the manor’s cobblestone entry. The possibilities for expansion or redesigning this enchanting enclave are intriguing, but for the lover of unique historical homes, this delightful Georgian residence offers spacious rooms with high ceilings, a huge upgraded eat-in kitchen with wine cooler, circular staircase up and downstairs to basement, extensive custom, granite-topped cabinetry, center island, and stainless steel appliances. A double sided fireplace enhances the kitchen, the ballroom-sized formal dining room, the sun-drenched living room with acanthus leaf crown molding, and the warm and inviting mahogany paneled office. Harlequin marble floors greet visitors in the spacious foyer with elaborate crown moldings, guest closet and powder room. The second floor features a palatial master suite with fireplace and luxury bath, plus a second bedroom with bath en suite and two bedrooms sharing a third bath. The partial basement includes a laundry room plus an additional room and utilities. Long a popular area for Manhattan’s magnates and luminaries to build their grand residences, Old Westbury is just 30 minutes by railway or highway from Manhattan and Kennedy and LaGuardia airports. Conveniently located near parks and museums, it is just a short drive from fine dining, premier shopping, country clubs, miles of public equestrian trails, polo club, yacht clubs and beaches.
