house in roslyn

A historic, landmarked colonial home built in 1836 and restored in 1926 is listed for sale in Roslyn.

Dubbed “Locust Hill,” this grand house is situated on more than four acres of land and overlooks Gerry Park in the quaint Village of Roslyn. In fact, the Gerry family, for whom the park is named after, once lived in the home, as well as the notable Brower family.

Renowned architect Bradley Delehanty renovated the old home 90 years after it was built to its current grandeur. Now, its 1920s colonial architectural style exudes old-world charm inside and out.

The revived home offers an oversized formal dining room and formal living room, as well as a large eat-in kitchen. Throughout the house, certain original details are still present, such as the intricate moldings and wood floors. 

This 6-bedroom house has six full bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and a half bathroom. It also has seven wood-burning fireplaces, including in the living room and the oversized bedrooms. Large, elegant windows allow for views of the park and the distant Long Island Sound.

Other notable features include a potting shed, a barn-garage, a tennis court, a wine cellar, and a screened-in Adirondack porch. It also has a full basement with walk-out access. The property is full of nature, from well-manicured gardens to towering trees. It is located in the Roslyn School District at 110 Main St.

The asking price is $2,488,000, not including the annual property tax of $38,942.

The real estate agents listed for the property are Debra Quinn Petkanas and Diane Stigliano, of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, who can be reached at 516-674-2000.
