4 Arborfields Ct - Old Westbury, New York
Old Westbury. Glamour meets high tech in this spectacular brick colonial set on over two flat acres in Old Westbury. Offering the glitz of a movie star estate and updated with the latest in smart-house technology, creature comforts, and high-end finishes, it provides a dazzling setting for grand entertaining and opulent living. Located off a cul-de-sac shared with three other properties, it is convenient to premier shopping, entertainment and dining venues, golf and equestrian facilities, universities, and major highways putting it within easy reach of boating and beaches, and about 26 miles from Manhattan. A circular drive, accented by graceful trees and elegant plantings, winds around to a service courtyard and a three-car attached, heated garage. Estate fencing opens to an expansive rear property encircled by a lush backdrop of trees. Here, you can enjoy a summer filled with fun and friends enjoying a large inground pool with spa, spacious stone surround, and magnificent pavilion. Along the rear of the house, an expansive patio includes a new large pergola shading a complete outdoor kitchen. From its imposing, nearly-three-story portico with Corinthian columns and filigree-and-glass entrance doors, guests are welcomed into an enthralling two-story foyer. Sunlight entering through a massive transom light dances across heated inlaid stone floors, fielded-panel walls, and a graceful bridal staircase with elegant iron filigree balustrade. Archways framed by Corinthian pilasters and Ionic pillars frame entry into the living and dining rooms. Both magnificent rooms will delight the eye with glistening oak floors, front bow windows, wainscoting, and breathtaking ceilings with elaborate and massive moldings. Oak floors flow through a similar archway from the living room into a delightful, sunny den where a gorgeous, hand-carved-marble fireplace is flanked by French doors opening to the patio. At one end, an exquisitely-crafted wall of custom cabinetry is both practical and a work of art. The other end of the room flows seamlessly into a spectacular gourmet kitchen with heated inlaid stone floors and a breakfast area with large bay window. With a “Hollywood-meets-French-Country” ambiance, this bright and spacious chef’s dream boasts ample custom cabinetry with granite countertops, exquisite moldings, tile backsplash, and center island with seating area, prep sink, and beverage cooler. Additional high-end stainless-steel appliances include twin SubZero refrigerators/freezers; Miele oven, Miele microwave speed oven, Miele warming drawer, and Miele cappuccino maker; and a cooking center with two gas burners, a gas grill, an induction cooktop with four burners, and a pot filler. A butler’s pantry connects kitchen to dining room. A hall off the kitchen leads to a planning corner, a deluxe laundry room, an onyx full bath, guest bedroom, mudroom, and access to basement, second floor, garage, and patio. On the second floor, a palatial and posh master suite enjoys a sunny and spacious master bedroom with a striking DaVinci glass-and-gas fireplace beneath a recessed panel television. A harlequin-beveled-mirror dressing area accesses a huge four-season walk-in closet and a lavish master bath with radiant-heated inlaid stone floors, a glass-enclosed steam shower, matching claw-and-ball tub, twin vanities, bidet, commode, and bay window. Both bath and bedroom offer the convenience of remote-controlled blinds. Four additional sunny and attractive bedrooms, two designer baths, and ample storage space complete this level. The newly renovated basement is an entertainer’s dream with breathtaking, radiant-heated floors, a mirrored gym with egress window, a gorgeous designer spa bath, a state-of-the-art bar/kitchenette offering a granite-waterfall bar with seating, ample sleek white cabinetry, sink, dishwasher, and see-through refrigerator/freezer. The sensational entertainment area features a coffered ceiling, fielded-panel walls and pillars, and a striking bookmatched marble wall with inset wide-screen television and DaVinci glass-and-gas fireplace.
