Elegance radiates from this historic Georgian-style mansion and its nearly 24-acre expansive wooded estate with and two guest cottages listed for sale at 473 Woodbury Rd. in Cold Spring Harbor.

Built in 1934, this home was designed by Mott B. Schmidt, the famed architect who designed homes for the Vanderbilt family and other socialites a century ago. It’s situated on a 1,034,550-square-foot lot that’s nearly as big as Ellis Island, with views of the valley and harbor.

The 11-bedroom mansion has 8,000-square-feet of living space, eight bathrooms, two half bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen with updated appliances and formal dining room. Amenities include a library, seven fireplaces, in-ground pool and tennis court. The basement includes an unfinished playroom, perfect for a new owner to add their own style into this beautifully designed home.

Besides two large cottages, it also has a carriage house with an apartment, a three-stall barn, a greenhouse and nine-car detached garage.

This estate is 15 minutes from the Northern State Parkway and the Long Island Expressway, and five minutes from the Cold Spring Harbor Long Island Rail Road station. The home is zoned for Cold Spring Harbor High School, which is ranked No. 31 in New York State, according to U.S. News & World Report.

The asking price is $12,500,000, not including annual property taxes of $103,101.
