Majestic. That is the best word to describe the sprawling century-old estate recently listed for sale with a 3,000-square-foot private beach located at 100 Feeks Lane in the Village of Lattingtown.
This epitome of Gold Coast living features a laundry list of selling points, including more than 5,000-square feet of living space, two guest cottages, an in-ground pool, tennis courts and fruit trees that dot the beautifully landscaped 6.75 acres of property—a lot size more typical of a farm or ranch than a single-family home.
Life-sized statutes of men on horseback bookend the brick and iron-wrought entrance gates that welcome visitors. Once inside, the long scenic driveway leads the way to the gorgeous estate house.
Built in 1914, this magnificent six-bedroom house has four and a half bathrooms, a ballroom, eat-in kitchen, grand living room, six fireplaces, stone patio and three porches.
While the stately property has no shortage of privacy, it’s also only about a mile from the Locust Valley Long Island Rail Road station. It’s also a short drive from the lively downtown areas of Oyster Bay, Bayville and Glen Cove.
For nature lovers that just can’t get enough of the wilderness that the property offers, the estate is only three blocks from Baily Arboretum County Park and near the North Shore Wildlife Sanctuary. It overlooks Mill Neck Creek, which feeds into Oyster Bay.
The estate falls within the Locust Valley School District, which had its high school ranked by The Washington Post as No. 1 on Long Island and No. 4 in New York State this year in the paper’s annual High School Challenge Index.
What’s the asking price? It can be all yours for $2,650,000. The property tax bill last year was $68,289.12, including $2,482.01 in village taxes.
