This house is one of the finest on the North Shore of Long Island.
Whether you want to relive the glamour of the Roaring Twenties or just want to see what life is like for a Russian billionaire, this $ 85 million property on New York’s Long Island has got you covered.
First built in 1928, this eight-acre Long Island estate has all of the modern luxuries you would hope to get in a home of that price.
The estate was previously owned by Tamir Sapir, a Russian émigré who made his fortune in New York real estate. He died in 2014.
The current owner, whose identity is shrouded in mystery by a limited-liability corporation, bought the estate in 2013 for $ 15.85 million, but they reportedly never moved in.
The mansion later listed for $ 100 million in 2015 with no takers. Paul Tyree of Laffey Real Estate now has the new listing.
One of the largest and most expensive homes on Long Island’s North Shore is up for sale again.
Located in the village of Kings Point, the eight-acre estate lies about 25 miles from Manhattan.
Much of that acreage is taken up by manicured lawns and gardens. Long, winding driveways lead to the several different structures situated on the property.
The main house was built in 1928 and is a turreted stone mansion, evoking much of the glamour and glitz of the Roaring Twenties.
It’s since been updated many times over, and it has all of the modern luxuries one might expect at this price point.
In the time since the main house was built, two other guesthouses were added to the property, increasing the livable square feet to 60,000. According to the listing, there are now 18 bedrooms in total.
Tons of outdoor spaces have been built to enjoy the greenery.
Gold doors welcome you into the main residence.
The kitchen sits under stained-glass skylights. It has plenty of custom touches, like stone flooring, two steel refrigerators, and a center island-mounted range and hood.
The bathrooms are also custom-built, with lots of glass and marble.
Solariums filled with stone and gem work are situated around the house. Onyx, lapis, agate, and malachite were all used.
The main house also has a ballroom, lazy river, hair salon, wine vault, indoor racquetball court, gym, spa, sauna, indoor pools, and even a two-story doll house. Another building houses a bowling alley, casino room, and even a shooting range.
The property’s history is apparent in the backyard of the main residence, where old-growth trees have stood for nearly a century.
Multiple themed gardens are strewn through the property. A Japanese, English, and rose garden are all included.
The fountains and statues on the property were inspired by the Peterhof Grand Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia.
A full-size tennis court also sits on the property, though it appears the new owner will have to supply their own net.
Behind the main house, through the garden, and past the tennis court, you’ll find another pool. This one has its own waterslide.
A private pier in the back juts out into the Long Island Sound and can accommodate a yacht up to 200 feet long.
