To acquire an entire island of this magnitude and beauty is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The fact that it lies less than 1 hour from New York City by car, and less than 30 minutes by air or sea makes it remarkable. The Manor House is an example of the extraordinary craftsmanship and resources available to the creators of the fabled Gold Coast estates. There are 5 additional major residences on the island plus an 8 stall stable, paddocks and a groomsmanâ€™s cottage. Salutation offers spectacular and unparalleled views over the Long Island Sound to the Manhattan skyline, Connecticut and Westchester.
THE MANOR HOUSE
THE MANOR HOUSE â€œSalutationâ€? was built in 1919 by Junius Spencer Morgan, son of J.P. Morgan Jr., with a later addition completed in 1928. The architect was Roger H. Ballard, and Frederick Law Olmsted, the celebrated landscape architect of New York Cityâ€™s Central Park, was engaged to design the property. Mature ornamental plantings, specimen trees, walled gardens and rose gardens have thrived and contribute to the magical aura of this truly extraordinary property. The stately and monumental manor house is constructed of stone transported by barge from quarries in upstate New York by Mr. Morgan. The roof tiles are also of stone. The house is approximately 27,000 square feet in size, and has had only three owners. Original appointments including wide-plank flooring, magnificent millwork and leaded glass windows have been meticulously maintained. Many sets of French doors open to terraces from which spectacular views of the water, gardens, lawns and sunsets may be savored. The entrance foyer, octagonal in shape, is illuminated by a dramatic skylight located three floors above. Arched doors lead to the baronial Great Hall. Its marble and stone flooring, beamed ceiling, wainscoting and a myriad of other architectural details are a testament to the vision of the architect and the excellence of the craftsmen who executed that vision. Grandly proportioned entertaining rooms include a formal living room, dining room, delightful octagonal shaped breakfast room and a music room, all with fireplaces and high ceilings. The handsome library, paneled in mahogany, has wide plank floors and 2 fireplaces. French doors at one end of the Great Hall open to a covered, colonnaded terrace with superlative views across Long Island Sound to the Manhattan skyline, Westchester and Connecticut.
