Sweeping views of the Great South Bay are unparalleled at this palatial post-modern waterfront mansion on the market at 162 West Bayberry Rd. in Islip in the tony neighborhood of Bayberry Point.
Built about 20 years ago with nearly 11,000 square feet of living space, a classic design and fine European craftsmanship tailored for a lifestyle of casual elegance, this jewel of a home is truly one of a kind. Besides its stunning panoramic vistas, its great many amenities include an in-ground infinity pool, a hot tub, five fireplaces and 800-square-feet of water frontage.
The majestic property—easily the most eye-catching house that Fire Island Ferries passengers glimpse when they cross the bay—has five bedrooms, seven and a half bathrooms, a formal dining room, eat-in kitchen, billiard room and library. It also has a three-car garage, porch, patio and water fountain at the top of its gated driveway. This fantastic home includes rights to a private marina and sits on 1.6 acres—that’s 69,696 square feet, meaning the entire property has more space than The White House, not including the grounds surrounding the president’s home.
The property is located less than two miles from the Islip Long Island Rail Road station. It’s also a short drive from Sunrise Highway, the Southern State and Sagtikos parkways. Its perks include being situated near a multitude of parks, including Islip Beach, Heckscher State Park, Connetquot River State Park and Robert Moses State Park.
The property falls within the Islip School District, which had its high school ranked as one of the best in the nation by Newsweek magazine.
How much is this mansion? It can be all yours for $5.9 million. That doesn’t include the annual property taxes of $78,513.
