Huntington Oheka Castle

Huntington homes for sale are attracting plenty of acclaim these days, and our real estate agents are ready to handle the increased demand. But, naturally, even the most dedicated house-hunters don't spend all of their time looking for homes – they also want to get acclimated to Long Island's Gold Coast and all its amenities and sights. And what sights they are!

The Gold Coast is known for both its natural and man-made wonders.  In addition to the Gold Coast's beach and historic lighthouses, it has a collection of gorgeous mansions. Some modern, some historical, all of these fabulous constructions are impressive in their own way. There are even mansion tours so you can see all of them in a whirlwind tour that will leave you breathless.

If you only have time to see one magnificent mansion, though, we have the pick for you.  It's the Oheka Castle, also known as the Otto Kahn Estate.

And it stands out as truly unique in an area that's replete with architectural wonders. 

The Oheka Castle is a Fairytale Wonder

Built between 1914 and 1919 by the famous financier Otto Herman Kahn, whose name inspired its own, the Oheka Castle is today the second-largest private home in the United States. It is composed of more than 100 rooms sprawling across more than 109,000 square feet.

The Castle, known far and wide for its pointed, tower-like projections, has long been a subject of fascination. In recent years, the public has had more opportunities to see it up close and personal: It has been renovated and reopened as a luxury hotel.

The current hotel configuration consists of 32 guest rooms, including lavish luxury suites.

Oheka Castle has also served as a wedding venue, a favorite among A-list celebrities and international dignitaries. It has appeared in the backdrop of a wide range of films and television shows, often staged as a historic location in Europe.

Visitors are welcome to drop in for tours of the chateau-style estate and its lavish gardens. It is not necessary to get a room, though staying overnight provides you with a unique perspective. Each guestroom has antiques, artworks, and the elegant Italian linens.

Although the building retains all the charm of its original incarnation, the hotel also offers all you would expect from any modern business-class accommodations. You can enjoy fine dining, a fitness center, in-room massage, and even golf and tennis at nearby Cold Springs Country Club.
