    This has to be owned by an attorney. No way in hell someone would want to live in a giant attorney’s office or courtroom. Exterior looks like an earthworm.

    Aside from the elongated floorplan, I LOVE the photos of the interiors. I love the extensive use of dark natural woods throughout (probably what Daniel meant by the attorney’s office / courtroom comparison – I just love that look), and the coffered ceilings. The kitchen and that outdoor room are gorgeous! Hopefully that crazy floorplan doesn’t mean this home will be squeezed in between two other large homes, but from first glance, this looks like my kind of place!

    What the hell…? I absolutely hate the layout of this thing. I get that the owner wanted a really big house on a really narrow lot but that’s ridiculous. Beyond the house’s shape, the exterior is very awkward. Which entrance is the main entrance? There’s one facing south, that looks almost like an afterthought, and another on the east side of the house. Both look like primary entrances. The interior just doesn’t do anything for me.

    I wanted to hate the interior, as the exterior has the most ridiculous layout or site plan that I have ever seen. But attorney’s office or not, the interior is well done and eminently livable – at least for me. But the exterior is the architectural equivalent of a ransom note, and it is hard to believe that the designer is a trained architect. More likely a builder with software that made it a snap to design a monstrosity.

    Kenny, how ’bout coming up with a HOTR version of the Razzie Awards? I think you could get some major PR out of it. Just let me nominate this one for Worst Architectural Design.

    A mess from the get-go. The lot has a tiny beachfront and the only view of the beach is from the pool. I like the billiards room.

    I love the exquisite interior of this home! The dark wood tones and coffered ceilings give it a warm and, in my opinion, inviting look. I prefer a fromal interior. As for the exterior: the main entrance is nice, although I would prefer more lawn and less pavement. The landscaping in the front is very nice. The layout of the home does seem a bit odd and elongated, but in order to have a home of this size, it seems that this was the only option, given the narrow lot that the house sits upon. But it certainly doesn’t appear to affect the interior in any way.

    It could be worse. Definitely an attorney’s home though. Or possibly a judge.

    I was poking around the area when I looked this home up on birds eye view and noticed something strange nearby…what is that round thing at the end of Governor’s Ln (south and east of our subject house). It’s either next to or on the property of Sands Point County Park. I would’ve thought it might be horse-related, but there doesn’t appear to be any horse facilities close by.

        Not the water tower, I’m talking about literally right next to the end of Governor’s Ln and Orama Dr, it’s a flat, round surface that looks like it’s made of concrete.

          Nova Ben. I think what you are seeing is not actually part of the Sands Point park. THe park is a collection of former Guggeneim family mansions and estates and are really spectacular buildings. The Helen Keller Institute for the Blind is headquartered in the office park looking building complex adjacent to that concrete circle you see. It is also an assisted living facility for vision impaired residents. While I am not certain, the circle is actually two concentric rings, and the outer ring has railings around it and the innner ring also is fenced in and is surrounded by light poles. While I dont know what courses and programs take place there, I would venture to say that the circle is probably a walking trail that a vision impaired resident of the facility can use and not be concerned with getting lost. It makes sense, so if someone can confirm that, that is what it most likely is.

          Also the nearby horse facilty you were seeking, well that would be the former Guggenheim horse facilty and that was actually in the enormous stone castle structure near the water tower that someone else mentioned. It had an interior riding ring back in the day. The Sands Ppint Park is quite the place, containing 3 mansions, two easily can be called castles.

            Really great info, Marc, thanks! I had no idea there was an institute for the blind there…I kind of figured that ring wasn’t part of the park, it was just the park was a good reference point to describe where I was talking about. Your guess as to what the rings are sound pretty convincing, I would not be surprised if that’s what it was. 🙂

    I just don’t get having a 3.3 acre lot size and only a 3-car garage!

      I would think the size of the house would have more to do with how big a garage you should have, not the lot size.

      Although I guess I just supported your point anyway since the house is huge, but oh well 😉

      It DOES look like a monstrosity, but at least it is properly sited on the property.

    I was one of the subcontractors on the job. The owner is one of the biggest Electrical contractors in NYC. He was a great guy and the house was awesome. If you like the exterior please “like” my FB page. @eastcoastwallcoatings .
