THE ESTATE AT KINGS POINT F.SCOTT FITZGERALD MAY HAVE PATTERNED his glitzy Gatsby residence after this property, which was later transformed into a virtual palace in the style of the Romanov’s Peterhof Grand Palace in St. Petersburg. When you pass through the gates of the Estate at Kings Point, it can be difficult to grasp the grandeur that will unfold. Everything is immaculate — the custom inlaid stone driveways, the courtyards and the beautiful rose gardens. Making your way across the eight-acre compound and down to the waterfront, the full scope of the property begins to take shape. From the waterside terrace, one can look across Long Island Sound and enjoy a drink as the sun sets over the Manhattan skyline. It’s only a 25-mile drive, yet the bustling city might as well be worlds away, as the specimen trees, magnificent statues and glistening fountains transport you to a majestic world of luxury in Kings Point, New York. Today, the estate maintains every imaginable amenity throughout the main residence and two large guest houses, offering a combined 18 bedrooms and 32 bathrooms. Akin to a private resort on Long Island’s Gold Coast, skilled craftsmen were gathered from around the world, turning unique marble, stone and gold filigree into a spectacular venue of artistic elegance. Upon entering the main house, an awe-inspiring three-story foyer sets the stage for the ornate detail that is to come. A gourmet eat-in kitchen gives way to a breakfast area and butler’s pantry, equally suited for hosting large or low-key dinners. A nearby hallway leads to a visually striking oval glass elevator servicing four levels of the home. A place to focus on the health of mind and body is the gym and spa with two whirlpools, a sauna and water treatment room. Imagine meditating and decompressing from a long day at work in this ultra tranquil space. A 3,000-bottle wine cellar completes the home with access to the David Courtyard, where a full-size replica of Michelangelo’s David stands courageously. The wine cellar is ideal for wine collectors who love to have a great bottle on-hand for lavish entertaining. One will find a refuge when pampering and rejuvenation are in order in the 5,000-square-foot aqua spa, which includes a lap pool, lazy river, two Jacuzzis, dual hydro soaking tubs, a hair salon, and a lounge, complete with a kitchen. Relax with your favorite book as you drift down the lazy river or rest your sore muscles in the jacuzzi. And if you’re in need of a workout, there is a two-story playroom and racquetball court also located in this well-equipped complex. A palatial master suite overlooks the waterfront and front fountains with three Juliet balconies, filling the room with a fresh breeze. The lavish master bathroom provides a unique atmosphere to unwind after a long day, with a spa surrounded by floor-to-ceiling aquariums. Across the second and third levels, four spacious en suite bedrooms ensure ample accommodations with mesmerizing views. The nearby carriage house is an ideal spot to host visiting family and guests, with five bedrooms and a host of exciting amenities, including a two-lane bowling alley, Moroccan spa with hammam (steam room) and a manicure and pedicure room. The Rodney House is the second guest house, complete with seven bedrooms to accommodate additional guests. Your visitors will feel as though they are on vacation. Combining the natural beauty of its surroundings with a resort-like ambience, the waterfront area serves as a gathering place for all to enjoy. One can play a game of tennis on the clay court before cooling down in the swimming pool with a drink at the swim-up bar, or host a large-scale event. For the maritime enthusiast, a deep-water dock extends into Long Island Sound with the capacity to hold a 200-foot mega yacht. As a world-class private residence located just a short drive from New York City, the Estate at Kings Point delivers a coveted lifestyle that is seldom available on such a grand scale. From top to bottom, it is a property that leaves nothing to be desired and stands ready to open its gates to the next owner.
