This 6-bed abode boasts dark, ebony floors that beautifully contrast the bright white walls throughout. The airy feel is amplified by the natural light that floods through the french doors and tall windows that line the home. The wainscotting accents highlight the intricate millwork and custom details — one of the many unique qualities of the property.
The top two floors are just over 3,700 square feet with sizable bedrooms, two of which feature wooden accent walls, tying in the rustic and modern feel of the home. The family room is open to the kitchen and features a white, cobble stone fireplace, one of four in the home, a beautiful delicate shift in textures that climbs the wall to the high A-line ceiling. The walls are lined with windows and doors that overlook the backyard. The eat-in kitchen, one of two kitchens, is bright with Christian cabinetry and a large island with a remarkable pop of color with a bright red Aga gas stove and granite counters. It also features two Fisher Paykel dishwashers.
The Locust Valley home boasts 10 rooms, 8 full and 2 half-baths. The primary bedroom has its own exclusive wing, offering ultimate privacy, with a sitting room, two full baths, walk-in closet and primary suite. Four ensuite bedrooms and game room lounge area are perfect for family, friends and winding down. There is also a set of stairs that leads to a private guest suite with a full bath.
The living room and dining room open floor plan has two fireplaces located at either end of the room. The fireplace is a gorgeous deep green color, yet another accent that adds a stunner touch to each area of the estate. From the statement red-brick exterior with 3-car garage to the myriad of textures and pop of colors within the interior.
The approximately 2,500-square-foot finished basement hosts a cozy home theater as well as a bountiful home gym. Take your workout outdoors at the basketball and tennis courts or simply admire the lake on the property. The secluded resort-style property with jacuzzi and pool and dainty stone pathways, is a relaxing paradise with everything one might need.
