A waterfront estate with 13 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, a ballroom and two guest houses for the price of $100 million has gone on the market. Located just 25 miles from New York City, in the old-money community of Kings Point, the historic mansion is thought to have inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald for the town of West Egg in The Great Gatsby.
The property has some truly spectacular features, such as an indoor lazy river pool and a vintage two-story dollhouse that is every little girl’s dream-come-true. Amongst other amenities is a private wine cellar with a tasting room, a casino, shooting range and a two-level garage with a hydraulic lift. The outdoor features of the property include tennis and racquetball courts and a gym.
Japanese and English gardens surround the estate and there is a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline on the horizon. Koi ponds and fountains complete the serene and lush landscape. The outdoor swimming pool boasts a slide, marble statues and ornate tiling on the edge.
The design of the house is rather lavish and features embellished ornaments and architectural styles to highlight its decadent luxury, such as golden doors with a stone arch and marble statues on either side. Marble, wood and designer fixtures adorn the interior, which is a mix of blue, white and cream flower details.
An enormous kitchen provides plenty of storage and counter space, and features stained-glass lighting. All bedrooms have en-suit bathrooms and the living and dining are flooded with natural light.
There is a private pier connected to the home that can dock a 200-foot-long yacht. Other striking features that have been added after the renovation are Turkish baths, spa treatment rooms, saunas, steam rooms, and even a hair salon. Coldwell Banker is the broker handling the listing.
