PROPERTY Sunset Bluff is a magnificent waterfront estate that sits high atop a hill overlooking Hempstead Harbor and the Long Island Sound. This historic property on Long Island’s exclusive North Shore was the residence of John T. Pirie, one of the original Sea Cliff settlers and community leaders. The home was rebuilt in 1997 after the original structure was lost to fire. One of the largest lots in the village, this almost 2-acre property includes a fantastic flat yard with brick patios, stairs down to its 300 feet of shoreline and a heated in-ground Gunite pool. With an elevated panoramic water view, the property enjoys cool breezes and glorious sunsets. A long Belgian block lined driveway winds through lush landscaping toward a detached 3-car garage and ample guest parking. Sea Cliff is a small Incorporated Village located just 25 miles east of Manhattan. It is well-known for its historic Victorian homes, village beach and local parks. Students attend the highly regarded North Shore Schools district.
