    Don’t like it. It looks like a square box in the middle of nowhere. This style (more than 2 floors, the style of windows and details of the facade) looks appropriate as a townhouse in NY but not as a freestanding house.
    And the yard looks horrible too; it looks like the only fun there is happening inside.

    I agree, the exterior is pretty bad and reminds me of a psychiatric hospital or something. It’s too symmetrical. I really don’t care to see the interior, because based on the two pictures provided, it will be a crazy mess with necessarily bold colors and nightmare-inducing murals. I love how the gatehouse is a completely different style.

    I would be much happier with the eastern neighbor.

    It’s a boxier version of the Saperstein mansion. No thanks.

    Like everyone else has said, it’s just really square and completely uninteresting. It’s big but there should be more to a magnificent house than just size. The gatehouse looks like a gaping mouth ready to gobble up guests as they enter the property.

    The Brokerage is a well known international company a division of Engel & Voelkers. I think this property is worth every dime.

        LOL.. No George I don’t. My g/f sells high-end RE and told me everything about this house. I thought as well it was a small company but she advised me otherwise. This was before HOTR posted.

      I am confused, because the company you mentioned is listing the property that means it is worth the asking price?

        No in comparison to the outrageous prices being asked for properties in that area. This one is actually worth it. We feel had it been one of the other big named local realtors it would have been listed a lot higher.

    May not seem like the same place, but a google map search of that address points to this house exactly. Zillow (I realize they aren’t THAT reliable) has it appraised at 13 and change, which seems more like it. Still, very boxy and cold on the outside. Probably owned by some Wall Street thief.

      Address is correct Kevin but Zillow’s information isn’t accurate including year built.

    According to Nassau County records, Zillow IS correct and the listing has it wrong.
    The home was built in 2002. There are 9.5, not 10 baths. There’s a total of 16,071 a/c sqft. It’s on 5.88 acres, not 6.
    Additionally, there’s a 1,456 sqft guest/gatehouse on the property with 2 beds, 2 bath, and two one-car garages which was built in 1997.
    The home is owned by Richard Cohen, an executive with Chudnow Manufacturing Company, Inc. which designs and manufactures beverage despensing machines and equipment.

    I actually really like it. Its solid and well constructed in the French style. The only thing I dislike is the tiny back yard. I don’t know what you have against the exterior, it looks very nice. It’s a very nice home with a good drive, but unfortunately has a terrible back yard in terms of size. That’s probably why some comments on here state that it looks squashed

    It’s obviously modeled after Petit Trionon on the grounds of Versailles. Heres a great post about Petit Trionon at a architecture blog, Columns and Balustrades:

        Oh actually it’s not my blog, but my next door neighbor’s. I showed him your blog recently, and he loved it! He thought the site was messed up, so he asked me to post the comment.

            No, he loved the site, he thought it was messed up because his comment wouldn’t go through, he thought there was a glitch or something.

    Bland and uninteresting and possibly one zero too many on its asking price…

    The Petit Trianon was smaller and better proportioned than this plus it was set in a park of many acres. If it were properly sited on an estate of 75 acres with the correct formal gardens it might, just might be okay if you gutted the interiors. It’s basically the Vegas version of the Petit Trianon – very in your face and gaudy – perfect for your Arab Shiek or Iranian nouveau riches. The place has been a local point of contention on Centre Ialand since it went up. Old timers refer to it as the cinder block pile and were very excited the night it burned down but alas they rebuilt. A classic white elephant property.
