A six-bedroom, brick Tudor home built in 1929 is listed for sale at 82 Hampton Rd. in Garden City.
Olive Tjaden, one of the country’s first prominent woman architects, designed the house with luxurious features, such as a sweeping staircase, several stained glass windows, and curved stone fireplaces. The front exterior shows off those windows and brick work with landscape lights that come on at night.
While holding on to its early 20th century roots, the four-floor house has many renovated rooms that give much more of a late 20th century feel, some with checkered tile floors and boldly colored walls, including lots of blues and greens.
The home’s enchantment comes from its high, 9-foot ceilings, private terraces, and wide-plank hardwood floors. The house is plenty spacious with a lower-level family room and home office. The house also has three bathrooms and two half bathrooms, including a master bathroom, and a powder room.
Its new, gourmet, eat-in kitchen leaves lots of room for preparing meals for a large family. The kitchen has a pantry, custom wood cabinets, Wolf and Sub Zero appliances, stone and marble flooring, a full-length wine refrigerator, surround sound, and decorative lighting.
The house has a basement with walk-out access. The backyard is great for hosting, with a built-in gas barbecue, brick-paved patios, and a large wood-burning fireplace. Plus, there is a separate two-car garage with a private loft on its second floor.
The asking price is $2,450,000, not including the annual property tax of $42,484.
The real estate agents listed for the property are Donna O’Reilly Einemann and Monica OReilly, of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, who can be reached at 516-669-3700.
