Long Island’s Gold Coast is typically associated with the glamour and elegance and can’t-look-away style of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, but instead of Jay Gatsby we’ve been tempted to seek out Alice to ask if we’ve entered Wonderland as the Long Island HOME Property of the Week heads to a magnificent mansion in Mill Neck.
“Few properties can evoke as many emotions as this one of a kind,” starts the listing for this opulent home in Mill Neck. “Being Part of the Gold Coast, Completed in 2013, set in 8 landscaped acres in the heart of the luxury enclaved of Horseshoe Road, Chateau Sur LEtaing is Gallagher Homburger Gonzales Architects brand new estate complete with indoor pool, elegant pond, state of the art greenhouse and six-car garage.”
