This week’s Long Island HOME Property of the Week spotlight takes us to the iconic Spanish Mediterranean waterfront home at 12 Macy Drive in Hewlett Bay Park. Listed with Ahmed Mohammed of the V.I. Properties Team at Compass Real Estate, the single-family home built in 1997 has an asking price of $11,600,000.
Nestled on over two acres within what the listing describes as “one of the most luxurious towns in NY State,” this nine-bedroom, eight-bathroom home offers 20,000 square feet of living space. Impeccably designed and built by the owner with custom-made high-end materials, this is a true waterfront property boasting notable amenities and impressive views throughout.
From the outside, one can stroll around the property’s 2.13 acres and take in standout aspects including the inground pool and, above, the unique two-layer Spanish Mediterranean copper roof, which the listing describes as among “the most challenging and expensive type of roof to build.”
This masterpiece of architecture boasts more than 300 Tischler Und Sohn windows and doors. Laser-cut mahogany flooring stretches out before guests walking through the home, while custom moldings adorn each room. “The use of luxurious mahogany brings an old-world charm to many rooms,” the listing notes, while gold-plated kitchen knobs and handles shine in the true chef’s kitchen.
Once inside the foyer, a winding staircase beckons, leading upstairs and past the Glen Johnson custom-made chandelier as one approaches the master suite. On the lower level includes an entertainment space with dining area and wet bar. The is also a cabana room that comes with a sauna, Jacuzzi, steam room and fitness area, as well as a full bathroom and pool entrance.
In addition to so many reasons to stay home, the property is just 15 minutes from JFK Airport and 35 minutes to midtown Manhattan.
