155 + 159 Cove Neck Rd - Cove Neck, New York
One of the most scenic spots on Long Island’s fabled “Gold Coast” could be yours in this spectacular 15.6-acre wooded wonderland atop a 160-foot-high bluff overlooking the confluence of Oyster Bay and Cold Spring Harbor and the distant shore of Connecticut across Long Island Sound. Enjoy watching regattas, sunrise and sunsets from the many terraces surrounding a sprawling glass and cedar 1955 modern ranch reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie School of architecture where structures blend with their surroundings both inside and out. High walls of glass open from nearly every room, including a master suite, guest suite, plus four additional bedrooms enjoying spectacular vistas of water, flowering shrubs, and emerald trees. Also overlooking the water, gardens, and woodland, a Le Corbusier inspired pool house offers sliding walls of glass opening to a large inground pool on one side, and terraces overlooking the waterfront on the other plus changing rooms, bathrooms and a second-floor studio. Once in the Roosevelt family, the steep hillside rising from the 700 feet of beach was used by Teddy Roosevelt to practice for his celebrated charge up San Juan Hill, instrumental in winning the Spanish American War. A wooded peninsula bounded on three sides by water, Cove Neck offers serenity and seclusion yet is near Oyster Bay Village’s shops, restaurants, harbor, and train station and is close to boating, golf, and riding trails.
