Location, location, location. We love that concept at Long Island HOME, and so do the residents of Dix Hills, with its mid-island proximity to both the Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean, the East End as well as Manhattan, and the myriad shopping, dining and cultural destinations within an easy drive. A hot spot today for young professionals and families today, Dix Hills was also once home to saxophonist and composer John Coltrane, the Jazz legend who lived in the community from 1964 until his death in 1967. Now, it also welcomes the Long Island HOME Property of the Week.
This five-bedroom home with eight full baths and one half-bath abode is grand, inside and out. The 13,000 square-foot abode features stunning 20-foot soaring ceilings, formal living room and formal dining room, a den, sauna, marble bath and countertops, a home office and much more.

The antique-white chef’s kitchen offers luxury appliances, such as double dishwasher and double wine fridge, and a walk-in pantry. Dark granite counters, including the center island with a warming drawer, juxtapose the white of the tiles and cabinets illuminated in a bath of natural sunlight from the doors that lead to the patio.
The exterior features a basketball court and views from two balconies, one of which stems from the primary suite that has separate seating area and a gas fireplace.
There is also an attached private, three-car garage.
Two staircases lead to “super-sized” rooms, as the listing describes them, with walk-in closets and en-suite baths. There is a second-floor family room that could be transitioned into a sixth bedroom with another balcony.
While this “all-brick brick beauty” is certainly a token of classic elegance, there are plenty of fun surprises on the lower level as well. The basement takes one decades back in time with its 1950s-inspired diner, complete with black-and-white checkered-tiled floor, bright red bar stools and booths. There is also an indoor basketball court and bowling alley, gym, full bath, steam room and a changing room with a separate entrance.
