At The Beacon at Garvies Point, a new luxury community being built in Glen Cove, it’s all about location, location, location.
The community’s developers, Uniondale-based RXR Realty, recently took the Press on a tour of the newly finished units.
“The Beacon at Garvies Point, a resort-style neighborhood in Glen Cove, offers potential buyers the opportunity to live a carefree lifestyle,” says Joseph Graziose, executive vice president of residential development and construction at RXR.
The born-and-bred Glen Cove resident has been a passionate revitalization advocate, and says he’s excited about the city’s transformation.
Conveniently located an hour from Manhattan and the Hamptons and nestled within 56 waterfront acres with sweeping views, The Beacon at Garvies Point boasts 167 LEED-certified, one-, two-, and three-bedroom luxury condominiums, and is the first phase of RXR’s massive development.
“RXR’s total investment in Glen Cove — through the Garvies Point and [downtown] Village Square project — will top over $1 billion,” Graziose says. “From the residential buildings, Harbor Landing (luxury rentals) and The Beacon, the project is bringing together a professional workforce with a commercial and retail component that will enhance the surrounding North Shore communities as well as revitalize Glen Cove’s waterfront. It’s been a labor of love.”
The Beacon’s residents have access to a variety of wonderful outdoor spaces, including courtyard terraces, rooftop terraces at the penthouse level, and outdoor balconies for nearly every home. And there’s private parking.
Units are priced from $700,000 to $3 million.
Experience all that Garvies Point has to offer and enjoy Long Island’s biggest playground with 28 acres of green space, sunset views, and easy access to open waters. Other draws: A one-mile waterfront esplanade with outdoor seating; connectivity to Garvies Point Preserve: a 62-acre wooded nature preserve that offers miles of trails and bike paths, as well as playgrounds, parks, a dog park, boardwalk and beach. And there’s more: an outdoor amphitheater, ecology pier, a platform for arts & entertainment, plus space for Glen Cove community events. Also, great schools and golf courses.
Lucky residents always get what they want and need at The Beacon, say the developers, thanks to a cornucopia of amazing amenities that guests can enjoy as well. That includes a lounge, library, club room, game room, screening room, 24-hour fitness center, yoga room, seasonal outdoor heated swimming pool, 23 rooftop terraces, two outdoor kitchens equipped with Viking grills, fridges, and prep sinks, and direct access to a waterfront esplanade.
“Everything will be taken care of for you, and you get peace of mind with 24-hour security,” says Graziose.
A friendly doorman greets you as you enter an impressive wood and stone lobby leading to spacious, beautifully appointed and welcoming common areas that serve as an extension of your home, providing comfy spots for reading, relaxing, or entertaining guests. There’s even a private meeting room.
Expertly designed by Safavieh and echoing their fabulous décor throughout the three model units (also for sale), these unique spaces feature transitional-style, on-trend furnishings, as well as striking accessories and lighting further enhanced by eye-catching artwork.
These elements are reflected in The Beacon’s open layout units — of which 50 percent or so have been sold (buyers have started moving in) — and in the high-end finishes, such as marble floors and glass-enclosed showers with mosaic floors in the bathrooms and Italian-made Siena custom cabinetry with soft-close and drawers in the kitchens.
“The open-plan gourmet kitchen is designed with chefs’ needs in mind, complete with custom-paneled GE Monogram appliances,” Graziose adds.
Other quality cucina features include durable and stylish Super White natural quartzite countertops, marble mosaic herringbone backsplashes, and oversized Kohler stainless steel sinks. Master bath highlights: soaking tubs, custom Siena wood double vanities, white marble countertops, Kohler undermount sinks, and high-gloss tile wet walls. Units have central A/C and gas stoves, and can offer smart technology.
The development also offers worry-free living with no need to keep up with the maintenance of a larger home, such as landscaping, snow shoveling, repairs, and pool cleaning. And there’s a 24-hour concierge.
Garvies Point’s proximity to the Long Island Rail Road’s Glen Cove station 1.5 miles away and access to Glen Cove’s Ferry Terminal and future ferry commuter service to Manhattan is another big plus. Also, it’s a stone’s throw from Village Square’s restaurants and shops.
“Purchasing at The Beacon is a great investment opportunity because of the lifestyle,” says Graziose. “Whether you are downsizing from a larger residence, to the empty nester whose kids have left the house, or a snowbird who has multiple residences, it is the perfect place to live, eat and play.”
The Beacon at Garvies Point will soon become the go-to waterfront destination for anyone looking for exciting activities and attractions close to home. Are you ready for some adventure?
