A piece of history remains, and today that same home is on the market for $3,900,000. The former owners kept the home’s integrity, keeping all the architectural detail that makes the home unique.“The new construction is a modern classic brick Colonial with a European elegance and style desired by today’s discerning global buyer,” explains Sharon Piscopia, a realtor with Laffey Fine Homes International, who is representing the property. “And, the owners spared no expense. Every detail is exquisite and reflects the beauty of an era gone by from the hand-beveled stone to the handcrafted coffered ceilings, inlaid black African wood floors, and the radiant floor heat throughout the house.”Additional standout features include the natural limestone flooring and eight-foot mahogany doors, majestic staircase in entry foyer and a wrought-iron chandelier made with real gemstones. In the living room stands a 19th-century French mantel from a castle that dates back to 1890 and in the dining area is an Italian fireplace from the 19th century made of travertine marble. The kitchen features custom-built cabinets with Edgar Berebi hardware and Swarovski crystals and Lemurian blue granite counters from Madagascar.On the second floor are four bedrooms that each have a bath and ample closet space. The master bedroom with Versace wallpaper has a custom fireplace, and the master bath has a steam shower and custom-made copper bathtub.The exterior features a wraparound porch with a portico, electric gates and intercom system and custom windows. The backyard has a bluestone patio, in-ground gunite heated pool and Jacuzzi, and an outdoor kitchen and entertainment area that is ideal for large gatherings. For additional privacy, there is an abundance of trees and shrubbery surrounding the property.The finished basement with nine-foot ceilings includes a media/recreation room, nanny bedroom ensuite, a sauna, a bar and a wine cellar with private seating. The estate also has an eight-car garage equipped with heating and air conditioning and two car lifts.Nancy Cuite, a resident of Sea Cliff and co-listing agent with Laffey Fine Homes International, describes Sea Cliff as the new Brooklyn.“The village is one square mile of restaurants, beaches, parks and festivals, music and art that are all within walking distance,” she says.The listing agents are Sharon Piscopia, Licensed Real Estate Broker, Laffey Fine Homes International [email protected] mobile 516-732-4515 and Nancy Cuite, Licensed Real Estate Broker Laffey Fine Homes International [email protected] laffetyintl.com mobile 516-200-5700.Front Parlor with hand cut limestone walls and marble fireplace.Gourmet Chefs Kitchen with Lemurian Blue Granite counters, La Cornue Blue range and custom cabinets made with Edgar Berebi Hardware and Swarovski Crystal.The backyard features an inground heated gunite pool with Jacuzzi, outdoor kitchen and entertainment area, bluestone slate patio.Familyroom with American Walnut parquet floor with African black wood inlay and marble fireplace mantle made of Emperador Marble.last_img read more
