Museum Quality In the Cove

This is a unique home of the highest caliber, set on two idyllic, scenic acres of the former Tiffany Estate, and near to the President Theodore Roosevelt sanctuary. A special location amidst the trees and rolling hills of Oyster Bay Cove. A special, splendid home designed by the same architect, Edward Durrell Stone, who designed the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, among other masterpieces.

A private drive leads to a circular courtyard and a brick walkway to a custom made mahogany double door entree-way to this Mid-Century Modern home with more than a flair of Stone’s famous international styling.

Enter into an elongated foyer which leads to a large living room with two walls of Anderson glass providing spectacular views to the exterior. Living room also features hardwood planked floors, wood burning fireplace, plus an exit door to a fabulous wrap around deck, perfect for all season outdoor entertaining. Deck overlooks your private kidney shaped, free form, gunite swimming pool. The pool is perfect for a pre-breakfast dip or the summer Sunday expanded family outing.

Adjacent to the entrance foyer is a spacious comfortable sky-lit dining room with a brick floor, separated from the foyer by a custom made oak room divider with built-in space for china, silver, linen storage plus a coat closet.

 An effective, functional, working kitchen with granite countertops, which open on two sides for easy service. Gas cooking (propane); new appliances; easy maintenance. Opens up to a family room with custom parquet floors and many built-ins. Also, with access to the brick patio. Almost every room has exterior access. You feel as one with nature. The outdoor Pergola adds to the relaxing, comfortable, zen-like quality of the premises.

Four bedrooms and two full baths on the main level. The master bedroom stands alone, off the foyer, with a sleek wall of closets on one side, and beautiful views of the exterior on the other side. Built-in bed with custom book shelves. A private door to the wrap around terrace. Interior private master bath with double stainless steel sinks stall shower.

The three additional bedrooms, plus an additional full bath, are conveniently on the other side, off of the family room. Lower level has a separate guest room, plus a third full bath. Then, an additional family room with working fireplace. Utility room with lots of storage space, high ceilings. Exterior two car carport with separate direct entrance to the home via mud room, plus independent laundry room, off kitchen plus storage shed.

Many, many extras, including world famous architect’s name, new fiberglass 1000 galloon oil tank, new roof, newly reconstructed driveway, connection to public water, and new cesspool.
