Property Description

"Preference", a masterpiece Georgian-style brick Manor House built in 1926 by distinguished architect Thomas Hastings as a wedding present for the Granddaughter of Charles Pratt. The Estate sits on the secluded, second-highest elevation of Long Island's Gold Coast creating a tranquil and harmonious setting. The winding driveway leads uphill past manicured lawns, specimen trees, flowering bushes and perennials. Elegance and comfort reign in this spectacular home, from the gabled slate roof, the exquisite detailed carved wood moldings, 18th century chamfered cedar paneling in the living room which conveys an air of gentility to the oval pool, tennis courts and outside veranda. The entry hall, with marble fireplace, details of the graceful iron and mahogany staircase looks through to the expansive grounds beyond. The large dining room, perfect for gracious entertaining, opens onto an outdoor terrace. Includes guest and staff apartment and a cottage.
