    Its a breath of fresh air from all the Hampton mansions, I have to say though I actually quite like it. There’s alot of major and minor adjustments to be made, the kitchen certainly isn’t my taste but it isn’t bad either. The whole house screams out “family comfort”, also love the rear garden, looks very peaceful and relaxing.

    I like this. Exterior looks very nice (a bit “Greenwich-y”) and the interior, with a completely new set of furnishings could be fantastic. Nice big open spaces, but still very manageable.

      The similarity of styles is no mistake – both Greenwich and this area of L.I.’s North Shore pride themselves on being “old money”. Contrast this with the new moneyed Hamptons.

    Now this I like. I think the interior could be freshened up to make it slightly less stodgy-looking, but overall I think it’s nice. Looking at the exterior pics it’s hard to guess that it’s not been there for 100 years. I would replace the asphalt driveway with something less ordinary, but beyond details like that, this is a winner for me.

      This mansion is in the Hamptons? I thought it was in Cold Spring Harbor, NY? Also I wanted to add that this is a nice house over all and the grounds of the property and the views and scenery look amazing but I really hate that fireplace in the foyer though, I’d have to do some renovations on that if I did hypothetically buy this house.

    Absolutely stunning. With some very subtle updating inside this will be perfect. Love the wood-paneled family room.

    The existing house is very well done and classically timeless. The home owes much of its timeless quality to the mature landscaped grounds and terraces overlooking Cold Spring Harbor. The property was originally landscaped by Olmsted and the current home sits on the site of the former Beaux Arts mansion built in the early part of the twentieth century for Walter Jennings. The mansion, Burrwood, was designed by Carrere and Hastings and foolishly demolished by Kean Construction after stating it would be preserved. They then built this home on the same site. So while the present house is very nice, I would prefer the authentic historic mansion that it replaced.

      You say Burrwood was foolishly demolished, but many, many of these homes simply couldn’t (and can’t) be saved. I would think that Kean probably thought it could be , but on closer examination, found it to be very uneconomical to do so.

        No many of these homes can be saved but the land it sat on was worth more to the developer than keeping his word, which in many cases enabled his subdivision plans to go through the town boards in the first place. His “estimate” to renovate the existing mansion was an absurd 10 or 11M back 15 years ago. Local preservation groups toured the home and saw nothing that some updating couldnt solve. He demolished one mansion and built 4 or 5 on the site including over the well preserved formal gardens. He obviously made a fortune in the process. Why restore one home when you could sell 5? Kean builds wonderful luxury homes as this listing attests to, but the man himself is sleazy.

          If he couldn’t make money at it, then why bother? Who would? Did anyone else step up and offer to do a renovation using the numbers the preservation group came up with?

            Mak, he could make money but he could make more subdividing the property. Not satisfied with just making money and doing the thing he promised to do, that is my point plus nobody steps up to the plate when everyone thinks they have found the right buyer who said they will presere the home only to find out the buyer lied and does the opposite. One cant fight that sleazy tactic.

            Irregardless, saving an older home, built with steel roof girders, concrete slab floors, solid limestone and granite stonework and slates up to an inch in thinkness only makes sense. Destroying such construction and craftsmanship is foolishly short-sighted and not sustainable. The building was meant to last 300 years. Instead we get stone veneers and thin tiles and plywood and engineered lumber mcmansions. THey may look pretty but the real artistry, materials uniqueness and one of a kind interiors and designs are sacrificed, not to mention the mature landscaping bulldozed. The original cannot be duplicated today. That alone makes the point to work with it and re-use it. It also is a commentary on todays lack of interest in preservation by people constructing mcmansions. They are also just as clueless to what they could have if they focused on restoring our countries historic properties and not building humongous inferior copies.
