1858 Muttontown Rd - Muttontown, New York

 

MUTTONTOWN. Reminiscent of the charming early Twentieth Century summer homes built by wealthy New Yorkers in New England and on Long Island’s “Gold Coast,” this enchanting young Georgian Colonial is special in many ways. For starters, it is part of an enclave of magnificent multi-acre properties virtually surrounded by the 550-acre Muttontown Preserve with its miles of nature walks, horse and ski trails, and remnants of three historic estates. Ensconced on over four gorgeous acres of emerald lawns, pool and greenhouse enfolded by pristine woodland, this stunning 2009, five-bedroom, six-full and two-half-bath home creates a sense of timeless serenity and seclusion. Nevertheless, it offers easy access to major highways and thus to all the recreational, cultural, shopping and dining experiences for which the area is so loved. Best known for its nature preserves, magnificent estates, and pleasant residential character, the village of Muttontown was incorporated in 1931, but its rich history and name originated in the 1600’s when Dutch and English settlers found its verdant rolling hillsides ideal for raising sheep. During the early Twentieth Century, many of New York’s financial leaders established their grand residences on these majestic hills located only 25 miles from Manhattan. Two former estates of New York City families are now known as The Muttontown Golf and Country Club and The Woodcrest Club. With similar roots, the well-known Muttontown Preserve offers some of the most beautiful parkland on Long Island. Entered through a gated entry, this magical retreat warms the heart with verdant vistas of manicured lawns and plantings, majestic trees, and an enchanting home with wide, wraparound, partially screened-in porch, a greenhouse, bluestone stepping-stone walkways, crushed bluestone courtyards, and a delightful, picket-fenced, inground Gunite pool with bluestone surround. Radiating a classic Traditional ambiance with beautiful moldings, high arched doorways, hardwood floors, a plethora of oversized windows and French doors, the sun-drenched interior offers a well-designed floor plan for year-round entertaining. This includes four inviting fireplaces plus easy access to porches, patios, and the pool area and an elevator to all three floors. The entrance foyer, with its striking harlequin floors and wainscoting, extends through the house to a French door opening to the rear porch. To the right, an immense living room offers a handsome fireplace and three walls of large windows overlooking the property. The formal dining room is classically adorned with wainscot, muraled walls, and archway into an elegant marble-and-cherry butler’s pantry. Sharing a see-through fireplace with the dining room, the spacious and sunny family room includes a coffered ceiling, built-in cabinetry, and French doors to the patio. It is open to the sunny breakfast room, also with access to the patio, and into the fabulous country kitchen. Despite its delightful colonial country charm, this bright and generous cook’s delight features everything to suit a modern gourmet chef. It boasts extensive custom Shaker cabinetry, Carrera-marble countertops, subway-tile backsplash, farm sink, two center islands, one with curved seating area and sink, the other with glass-and-wood top, beverage refrigerator on one side and buffet drawers on the breakfast side. Its numerous high-end appliances include a wolf 6-burner gas range with 2 ovens, a wall oven, microwave/convection oven, SubZero double refrigerator and 4 freezer drawers, and 2 integrated dishwashers. Also on this level are a generous three-season porch, a powder room, a cabana bath, a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers, and access to the attached three-car garage. On the second floor, a romantic master suite features a sunny bedroom with fireplace, dentil crown molding, walk-in closets, and a luxurious marble bath with marble-topped vanity and dressing table, water closet, steam shower, and claw-and-ball tub. Four additional bedrooms, each with bath en suite, and a huge bonus room, presently used as a gym and game room, complete this level. A full partially-finished basement provides ample storage and expansion possibilities. Sure to stand the test of time, no matter the prevailing style of the day, this magnificent and lovingly appointed New England-style Colonial, in its idyllic and secluded estate setting, nearly surrounded by a nature preserve, is truly a dream come true.
