203C W Shore Rd - Great Neck, New York
Kings Point. Tucked away on over an acre of beautiful grounds encircled by lush trees, this striking brick manor, with circular driveway, enjoys gentle breezes off the Long Island Sound about a thousand feet away. Built in 2000 and offering over 6,000-square-feet of luxurious living space with six bedrooms, four baths and a powder room, it has merged elements of Georgian, Palladian, Post Modern, and Art Deco design to create a stunning home for the New Millennium. Just south of the United States Merchant Marine Academy and close to the recreational facilities of Kings Point Park and the Parkwood Sports Complex, it is within easy reach of the charming shops, restaurants and train stations of Little Neck and Manhasset, including the Miracle Mile and Americana upscale outdoor mall. Great Neck is a peninsula on Long Island’s fabled north shore “Gold Coast,” known for its diverse population, cultural activities and many high-profile residents. Valued for being just minutes from Manhattan and for 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), George M. Cohan, Oscar Hammerstein II, Harry F. Sinclair, and Walter P Chrysler, whose estate is today the Merchant Marine Academy. With the classic look of a brick Georgian Colonial with coined corners and slate-like roof, the front façade is punctuated by a Post-Modern portico with Ionic pillars, a hint of what’s to come. Entered through oversized Post-Modern entry doors with matching fanlight, the sky-lit two-story entrance foyer, with marble powder room and two guest closets, greets the eye with a spectacular bridal staircase with Art Deco iron and brass balustrade and gleaming inlaid marble floors that flow into the enthralling formal dining room. This banquet-sized Art Deco masterpiece features a tiger-oak wall of custom built-ins, rich royal blue walls, and massive white crown moldings accenting a gold-leaf tray ceiling. A Palladian window floods the room with light as does a similar one in the living room across the foyer. A full wall of contemporary wood panels, along with hardwood floors, adds warmth and charm to this sunny gathering place. A French door leads into the bright and cheerful sunroom, a perfect spot for a card game or pleasant conversation. Off the rear of the foyer, a spacious and inviting den features a marble-faced gas fireplace and a wall of windows with French doors opening to the rear bluestone patio. French doors also open to the sunny and generous eat-in kitchen with large breakfast area opening to the patio. Ceramic tile floors and crown molding flow into the kitchen area that offers extensive custom maple cabinetry with granite countertop, mosaic tumbled marble backsplash, and large center island with wine cooler and seating. High-end appliances include an integrated dishwasher, refrigerator, electric double oven, and a Viking gas range double oven. Both the foyer and dining room access the kitchen as does a service area that includes a laundry room, bedroom, full bath, backstairs, outside entrance, and access to the attached three-car garage and full basement. Recently finished in part with bedroom, bath, egress window, and a large entertainment space, it offers ample storage space and room for future expansion. From the second floor balcony overlooking the foyer, a double door opens to the spacious and serene master suite with a huge, sun-drenched bedroom, two walk-in closets, and a luxurious, sky-lit marble master bath boasting two large vanities, a free-standing tub, glass-enclosed steam shower, water closet, heated towel rack, and heated floors. Also, on this level are an attic and two sets of Jack-and-Jill suites totaling four bedrooms and two baths. Dramatic and inviting, this lovely bright and airy home’s interior has been professionally designed with new furnishings, which are available for sale with some exceptions. Offering an outstanding location, a large property, and fabulous high-end appointments, this magnificent home only needs you to make it complete.
