1 Carriage Dr - Old Westbury, New York
OLD WESTBURY. Ensconced on 4 idyllic acres of gorgeous manicured lawns, exquisite gardens and mature trees, this spectacular, over 7,000-square-foot contemporary has been masterfully designed for those who love all things beautiful both in nature and in manmade aesthetics. Approached by a circular drive, dramatic white granite steps and a stunning cedar and glass façade are but a mere introduction to the stunning and masterful use of high-end materials seen throughout the manse as well as the breathtaking outdoor entertainment complex. This summer haven includes a myriad of decks and granite patios leading to an immense inground Gunite pool and spa, cabana, and tennis court, all accented by delightful specimen plantings with a lush backdrop of foliage. The interior is equally enthralling and amenable to entertaining beginning with its 2-story foyer and living room, awash with sunlight through walls of glass and huge clerestories. From here, the floor plan flows easily into an exceptional formal dining room with 2 solid walls of glass; a cozy den with unique stainless steel entertainment center and fireplace; a cherry and granite wet bar; and the extraordinary gourmet kitchen. This cook's delight features sleek cherry and granite cabinetry, a huge center island, and a solid picture window above the sink and counter overlooking the pool. High-end appliances galore serve every desire. Sliding-glass doors in the breakfast area open to the expansive patio, ideal for al fresco dining. In a wing of its own with a spacious deck overlooking the pool, the palatial master suite boasts a huge bedroom with make-up alcove, 2 fabulous custom 4-season closets, and a lavish marble bath with twin vanity, shower, water closet and Roman whirlpool tub beneath a picture window. Two additional bedrooms with baths en suite, a stunning powder room, and laundry complete this level. On the second floor a dramatic balcony with cascading wall of glass overlooks the living room and leads to 2 additional bedrooms with baths en suite. One could easily serve as a second master suite with its own balcony and ample room throughout. The finished lower level boasts an entertainment room with media area and movie screen plus a cedar closet. Located in Old Westbury, with its gently rolling hillsides dotted with magnificent estates, this entertainer’s gem is convenient to golf, polo, 3 major universities, equestrian facilities, and is just a short drive from boating, museums, dining and premier shopping. It is approximately ½ -hour commute to Manhattan by car or train.
