This Old World Colonial has a history as long as the massive piece of property on which it sits that is for sale at 300 Lawrence Hill Road in Cold Spring Harbor.
Built in 1910 on 5.44 acres of land—the size of two city blocks—this property was purchased in 1933 by JP Morgan as a wedding gift to his daughter, and there’s no surprise why. With iron gates opening up to a long driveway through the lush grounds that lead up to the four-story, brick-faced Georgian mansion, this beautiful home is the epitome of elegant inside and out.
Although it was restored to keep the eight-bedroom home up to date, the house stays true to its historic feel. It comes equipped with 10 bathrooms, 10 half bathrooms, two eat-in kitchens, a formal dining room, theater, full bar, gym, sauna and tanning booth.
The backyard has an in-ground saltwater pool, a pool house with a kitchen, a full playground, basketball court and guest house.
This colonial is a five minute drive from the Cold Spring Harbor Long Island Rail Road station, 11 minutes from the Long Island Expressway and a short drive from downtown Huntington. It is zoned for the Cold Spring Harbor school district, which had its high school ranked No. 31 in New York State by US News & World Report.
This elegant and historic home is listed for $13,800,000. The annual property taxes bill is $123,000.
