STERLING MIL L N ECK , N E W YO RK
L O C AT I O N Just thirty miles from Manhattan and within easy reach of fine shopping and dining, Sterling is nestled in the tranquil Incorporated Village of Mill Neck, New York which is characterized by magnificent homes and estates where luxurious living and the natural resource of Long Island Sound can be enjoyed.
PROPERTY A winding pebbled drive with sweeping views of expansive lawns sets the stage for arrival to Sterling. Built in 1976 and completely renovated to perfection, the expanded ranch style home has an elegant symmetry that orients the principal rooms toward wonderful views of awning covered brick and quartzite patios, lush green lawns, a spectacular heated saltwater pool and southern exposure that maximizes the home’s natural light. The level 4.99-acre property is graced by a low walled courtyard with manicured hedge that welcomes guests to the residence.
RESIDENCE Comprised of a cedar shake hipped roof and red brick façade that is complemented by tall shutters and a pretty wood apron detail below each casement window, Sterling evokes a country French sensibility. Once inside, relaxed living is found in the comfortable but refined home. Custom millwork featured throughout this residence is beautifully illustrated by the 13-foot-high rough-hewn Douglas fir vaulted entry foyer ceiling - artfully crafted and masterfully executed. The main gallery hallway with limestone and terra-cotta radiant heat floor provides an elegant bridge to the two wings of the home. The spacious and light-filled formal living room has an 11 ½-foot-high tray ceiling, recessed lighting, fabric covered walls, double French doors, a polished hardwood floor and a hidden wet bar with honed limestone countertop. The elegant formal dining room has French door access to outdoor patios.
The grand kitchen with 14-foot-high tray ceiling opens to a family room style sitting area overlooking a dining patio with built-in commercial grade grill and stone dining table which is perfect for outdoor entertaining. The kitchen is outfitted with handcrafted custom cabinetry, French blue limestone countertops, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, a pantry and a work island with sink and seating. The butlerâ€™s pantry boasts floorto-ceiling custom cabinetry, a sink, dishwasher and Sub-Zero refrigerator. There is radiant heat throughout. Completing this wing of the home is a bedroom with bath, laundry room, powder room and mud room that leads to the attached 3-bay heated garage. At the opposite wing, the gallery hall features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a charming brick and gravel courtyard and outdoor covered porch. The library is wrapped in custom wood cabinetry with a raised panel detail and strie finish. There is a wood burning fireplace and French door access to the outdoors. A curved staircase with lovely metal balustrade leads to the second level landing with skylight and closets. Two bedrooms share a large hall bath and have lovely views of rear lawns and gardens. A cedar storage room completes this level.
The sumptuous first floor master suite has French doors leading to a brick patio, an attractive gas fireplace and his and her custom dressing rooms and baths featuring Jerusalem limestone, deep soaking tubs, rainfall showers and comfortable radiant heat floors. A bedroom is currently in use as a handsome office with custom built-in cabinetry and desk.
For the golfer, there is a marvelous chipping and putting green with two sand traps. Two in-ground propane tanks service both the heated pool and kitchen. There is a generator, sound system, both indoors and outdoors, as well as professionally designed landscape lighting that highlights the property at night. Sterling is distinguished by the combination of remarkable craftsmanship, beautiful design and materials that culminate in an elegant, open, comfortable and gracious home where luxurious and easy living can be found.
