The Castle, as this luxurious Tudor-style home at 52 Mineola Ave. in Roslyn Estates is known, is truly fit for royalty with its stained-glass turret, guest cottage, heated in-ground pool and sauna.
This lavish 4,662-square-foot single-family home has all the amenities expected of such a fine residence on the Gold Cost, including seven bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, a blue stone patio with a built-in BBQ and detached garage. The stunning home sits on 1.79 acres, or 77,989 square feet—27 percent more square footage than a football field.
Built in 1946, the beautiful three-story home on a hill has the classic touch of hardwoods floors, two fireplaces and a spiral staircase but also has a modern, updated eat-in kitchen with a double oven as well as plenty of counter space. The generous living area includes a large formal dining room. And its fully furnished basement even has a playroom for the kids.
The home looks immaculate inside and out. Its U-shaped driveway is surrounded by a well-manicured lawn and massive backyard dotted with enough trees for privacy. The pool is gated off from the rest of the backyard with a tasteful iron-wrought fence.
Commuters interested in the property would be pleased to learn that it’s less than a mile from the Roslyn Long Island Rail Road station. It’s also less than a mile from the Long Island Expressway and Northern State Parkway.
For those days off, it’s conveniently located near Christopher Morley Park and several golf courses. The head of Hempstead Bay, which leads into the Long Island Sound, is a little more than a mile north of the home. The property falls within the award-winning Roslyn School District.
The asking price? It’s listed at $2,799,000. And the annual property taxes are $64,452.
