This magnificent 2015 all brick French Chateau is ready to fulfill your every desire. Standing majestically on its own near-three-acre property it offers sweeping lawns flowing up to a wooded hillside, a distant three-stall horse barn and wooded paddock, plus three delightful patios, one with gorgeous fountain, ample space for outdoor dining, and a perfect spot to enjoy serene vistas including local wildlife. Custom built for its present owner, this exceptional home has been exquisitely finished with spacious, sun-filled rooms ideal for entertaining and thoughtfully designed for ease in movement plus a first-floor guest/master suite. If you love equestrian pursuits, the property's location is ideal. About a thousand feet from its paddock, along a wooded horse path, is the North Shore Equestrian Center, and not far from there, is the U.S. Foundation Polo Fields. If horses aren't your thing, there is ample space on the property for a future pool and tennis court. Located close to the Long Island University Post Campus and the New York Institute of Technology, you will have many opportunities to enjoy cultural events, especially at the Tillis Center. The approximately 3,500 residents of Brookville have easy access to premier shopping and dining in neighboring villages, several golf courses nearby, and are just a short drive from boating, beaches, museums, railroad stations, and freeways with about a 30-mile commute to Manhattan. Off a beautiful and quiet "country" road with scenic estates and cul-de-sac, this gracious home welcomes guests with a driveway that accesses a large front courtyard and a service courtyard by the attached garage. Entering through the soaring entryway, you will be enthralled by the spacious two-story marble foyer with its soft neutral palate and graceful floating marble staircase. It's intricate iron-and-brass balustrade features a gothic arch that echoes the design of the arched front windows. A banquet-sized dining room to the right and the living room to the left feature massive crown molding and wood-like ceramic tile floors with radiant heating that flow throughout the home. To the rear of the living room, a sunny family room enjoys tall windows overlooking the rear property. An open staircase, with similar balustrade as the foyer, descends to the finished basement for easy access when entertaining. Open to the den, a bright and airy eat-in kitchen boasts ample marble-topped cabinetry and a large center island with seating. Kosher ready, it includes two large refrigerators, two sinks and dishwashers, two workstations, and two microwave ovens. It also offers an oversized glass cooktop with stunning black-and-gold exhaust hood, wall double oven, and an impressive vertically stacked marble wall with television and electric fireplace. The roomy breakfast area opens through French doors to the stone patio, which has been wired and plumbed for a future outdoor kitchen. A hall running the width of the house connects the foyer with the service staircase, gorgeous French powder room, several closets, pantry, mudroom, and garage to the right and to the left, the guest or master suite. This includes a comfortable bedroom, ample closets, full bath, laundry, and a sitting room with French doors to its own terrace and steps to the yard. The finished basement is perfect for year-round entertaining with a large recreation room, a wine cellar, and a spacious lounge/media room with stone, raised-hearth fireplace and twelve-foot sliding glass doors opening to a rear patio. On the second floor, you will feel duly pampered in a master suite that would rival the bridal suite in a French Riviera resort. It's huge sun-drenched bedroom and two custom-fitted closets are fabulous but are out shown by the two-room master bath and all its bling! One room boasts a huge frameless glass-enclosed steam shower with marble seat and multiple shower heads plus a mirror-covered twin vanity and water closet. The other has a free-standing jetted tub where you can relax in front of your marble encased electric fireplace set in a mirror-subway-tiled wall. Four additional bedrooms are on this floor - two with designer baths ensuite and two that share a lovely hall bath. Two linen closets, a laundry, and walk-up stairs to the third floor, complete the upstairs. A finished bonus room over the garage, accessed from the master suite could serve as a gym or huge closet/dressing room. In pristine condition throughout, this amazing home includes all the comforts and state-of the art mechanical and electronic features you would expect in a Twenty-First Century grand estate. All it needs is you!
