Our spectacular Gold Coast mansions and homes have provided the setting for movies and television shows from Batman to Mildred Pierce. In this issue, we take a snapshot of this diamond mine for world-class filmmakers. Knole, an estate in Old Westbury for instance, was the location for the original Arthur, starring Dudley Moore; as well as the films Reversal of Fortune, Mickey Blue Eyes, Devil’s Advocate, and The Associate starring Whoopi Goldberg. Falaise, the former Harry Guggenheim estate in Sands Point Preserve, was the setting for a scene in The Godfather starring Marlon Brando. What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas, but Oheka Castle in Cold Spring Hills was where the movie with Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore was actually filmed. Recently filmed in Old Westbury and coming to the big screen next year are Admission starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd and Dark Horse with Christopher Walken and Mia Farrow. Then there’s my own budding television career. But, as you’ll see, that’s a separate story. Our summer issue includes other stars as well. Gary Gallagher, our featured architect, has long been known for his luxurious one of a kind custom homes. The mother daughter team of Rosemarie and Annemarie DiSalvo, the owner/designers of DiSalvo Interiors, make decorating seem easy. Their eclectic sense of style can be seen in fabulous homes across the North Shore. We also look at summer decor -and how with a few minor changes, you can make the interior of your home feel outdoorsy and like summer. For your outdoor living room,

we’ve provided a sampling of garden decor products from fountains to freestanding fireplaces. Besides yard knickknacks that are nice to look at, we’ve also sought out great gadgets for a smarter home. And in the dining arena, we’ve taste tested the coolest cocktails at our favorite restaurant bars and enjoyed a meal at the Poll Brothers’ hot new venture in Roslyn, Hendrick’s Tavern. Our Good Life column will have you setting up the umbrella on the beach and canvassing the racks of suntan lotions at your local pharmacy or supermarket with SPFs of 30, 45, 70 or more. Sure, the dangers of too much sun have practically been grilled into us the last few years. But our fair-skinned essayist came out of the shade with a love story about having fun, safely, in the sun. Enjoy the summer! Don’t forget the suntan lotion. And happy reading!

ARCHITECTURAL VISIONS: GARY GALLAGHER CUSTOM DESIGNS ELEGANCE by Linda Tagliaferro by Linda Tagliaferro

What sets Gallagher’s

For Gary E. Gallagher, designing a home is all about focusing on the details and fulfilling clients’ wishes. Time and again, he has made dream homes come true. The president of Gallagher, Homburger, Gonzalez, Architects, PLCC in Huntington, Gallagher has created blueprints for many luxurious residences on the upscale North Shore. “We’ve worked on homes out in the Hamptons and other parts of the country,” he explained, “but primarily, we’ve done homes in the Gold Coast area.” Gallagher was born in western Pennsylvania but has lived in the Huntington area for most of his life. Even as a child he enjoyed sketching and designing. By the time that he entered high school, he had his heart set on pursuing a career in architecture. He attended the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury and cites his influences as Le Corbusier and Richard Meier as well as “a more recent generation of architects like Robert A.M. Stern and Michael Graves.” Since the early 1980s, Gallagher has worked with Steven Homburger and Melvin Gonzalez, designing

Gallagher and his colleagues excel at integrating dramatic touches into clients’ homes. “We do a lot of detail in these houses,” he explained. A recently completed residence features soaring ceilings with domes measuring 12 feet across. “It’s common with this type of dome to include a chandelier and a great deal of moldings and trims that fit the style and budget of the client,” he elaborated. The

GallaGher’s residences tend to be stately GeorGian colonials with Grand front entries and those “with a french manor-look with stone and very steeply pitched roofs,”

When a client seeks a design for not only the principal residence but also all the accessory buildings, Gallagher and his team coordinate plans for the compound. They enjoy designing an entire environment, which might include a guesthouse and a pool house. The structures utilize many of the same shapes and materials, roof lines tie into one another, and the windows complement each other.

Most of their architectural plans are unique and tailored to the homeowner and the specific site. More recently, tradition rules. Gallagher’s residences tend to be stately Georgian colonials with grand front entries and those “with a French manor-look with stone and very steeply pitched roofs,” he said. What sets Gallagher’s architectural practice apart from the competition is experience. “Among the three of us, we have 90 years in the business. We focus on doing quality, high end design and servicing our clients in all aspects of the process from the initial zoning analysis all the way through to helping them with the interiors and other aspects of the projects.” In order to develop a personalized design, from the start the architects spend a great deal of time discussing plans with their clients. Gallagher’s firm files for the necessary permits and helps clients select a builder, and assist throughout the construction process. When it comes to specific plantings or formal gardens, Gallagher defers to landscape architects. However, once the garden plans are designed, Gallagher’s firm

makes suggestions to ensure that the landscape is coordinated and that the plantings complement the architecture of the residence. If an allée of trees is supposed to line the driveway, for instance, Gallagher weighs in on the selection of trees. “You’d want to pick ones that don’t block the design,” he said. “I’ve seen long driveways where there’s no opportunity to see the house until you’re right in the forecourt, and that to me is disappointing. As you drive, you want to get some glimpses of what’s ahead.” Since he started in the field more than 30 years ago, Gallagher said that the industry has undergone a number of changes. “There are multiple state regulations and zoning has become more and more stringent,” he said. “The processes of filing and approval have become more involved.” More attention is also paid to the environment, with a focus on utilizing sustainable products such as cedar shingles coated with environmentally friendly stains. The products used for the homes they design are manufactured within a 500-mile radius. But adhering to state regulations doesn’t mean that

firm has also designed domes that have been painted to resemble azure skies. He recently suggested a distinctive flourish to a client with an artist’s studio in her home: incorporating a painted ceiling depicting the fingers of God and Adam reminiscent of Michelangelo’s mural in the Sistine Chapel. “It could be an inspiring addition to her residence,” he explained. When a client seeks a design for not only the principal residence but also all the accessory buildings, Gallagher and his team coordinate plans for the compound. They enjoy designing an entire environment, which might include a guesthouse and a pool house. The structures utilize many of the same shapes and materials, roof lines tie into one another, and the windows complement each other. To achieve the best results for their clients, Gallagher and his team discuss all the possibilities. “Initially, we ask what’s on the client’s wish list without editing out what they think they can’t do,” Gallagher said. “Maybe they can’t accomplish the entire wish list, but we’ll sit down and explore all the different alternatives and see how close we can get to the mark.” SE SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY 9

DiSalvo iNTERioRS: aN EClECTiC DUo By DoNNa KUTT NaHaS

When Rosemarie DiSalvo designs interiors, she prefers the clean lines and natural, unstained wood tones of Italian Country style rather than the gilding typical of more ornate Renaissance style furnishings. Sometimes the high end interior designer opts for English Regency style, tapping into its“rich mahogany of reds and dark brown stain,” with inlaid woods and clean lines. Or if her client so desires, she’ll fashion a space with classic Chippendale style furniture with their signature ball and claw legs. Her daughter, Annemarie DiSalvo, on the other hand, takes an eclectic approach to interior design. With tastes and preferences that constantly evolve, she finds inspiration in everything around her “ as well as other designers’ creative work.” She explores different design genres and time periods and mixes and matches them together to form a “pleasing palette” and “unique personality” for each client’s home. “For example: A bold modern painting, ensconced in a gold leaf Rococo frame can hang magnificently above an Art Deco console.” Though their styles are different, the motherdaughter duo (Rosemarie is vice president; Annemarie is president) combine their strengths as 12 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

founders and owners of DiSalvo Interiors, a 16-yearold interior design firm based in Carle Place that handles residential and commercial interior design projects from Manhattan to the East End. Most of their residential commissions are on the North Shore of Nassau County. As a design team they share a mahogany partners’ desk in their second-story office in a converted 1880s firehouse. It is here where interiors are transformed from the mundane to the spectacular. Interior design plans for kitchens and baths are spread out on a grand onyx-top art deco table. Binders chock-full of fabric samples, wall coverings, wood finishes and furniture resources line the shelves and a farmhouse table. Each year, the DiSalvos design the interiors of eight to 10 new 10,000-square-foot homes and handle a dozen or so smaller redesign and decorating projects, Annemarie said. They also decorated a European villa outside Rome that once belonged to the grandfather of a client from Garden City and will be used as a second residence. Among the latest trends, they noted, are deep jewel tones of teal, orange and ruby along with monochromatic grays, including gray wood tones,

driftwood finishes and metal. Traditional lines mix with modern colors; patterns are starting to make a comeback; and marble countertops are gaining favor over speckled granite. By 9 a.m. each morning the DiSalvos are responding to dozens of emails from clients, builders and suppliers, and are “putting out fires” of a different kind. “In construction, a million things can go wrong: molding is warped, a marble shipment is delayed,” said Annemarie, who studied interior design at Fashion Institute of Technology. Rosemarie, who learned the trade at C.W.Post/ Long Island University near the end of a 23-year stint as a paralegal, typically takes on small design and decorating projects. Annemarie tackles ground-up construction or major renovations. A third designer, Keith Mazzei, a design coordinator, and a bookkeeping assistant round out the team. Initially the firm was a small furniture and design services boutique located first in Franklin Square, and later Garden City. “My job at the law firm was very rewarding, but my daughter gave me the ability to go for my dream,” Rosemarie recalled. She has no regrets. “The business is a blessing, and I am very happy we did it.” Two years ago, the pair decided to downsize the

retail portion of the business and expand their more popular interior design service. They moved the headquarters of DiSalvo Interiors to its current location. According to their website, some of their commercial redesign projects are for captains of industry such as Dean Witter in Manhattan, the Wall Street Regent Hotel and catering giant Leonard’s of Great Neck. Annemarie visits three to five job sites every day. “I work with the builder to make sure projects are progressing and that the finishes are being installed properly.” She keeps a pair of UGG boots in her SUV just in case a worksite is muddy, snowy or drafty. From the job site, she may drive to Manhattan or the Hamptons to meet a client to review architectural plans. Her task is complex. Designing a space not only

involves dressing up a room with beautiful furnishings and stunning fabrics, Annemarie said, but also changing the structure, sometimes transforming plaster walls to stone, adding beams to a ceiling, moving or changing the shape of a window. Aspects of a room are not properly modified without striving to find the “best potential in every space.” “When you know a client and what she wants, every area of a room should have a purpose,” said Annemarie, who caught the design bug years ago after viewing a spectacularly refurbished home in the Five Towns. “That purposed area can take the form of a corner with a reading chair or a fantastic piece of art that will make you want to wander over and ponder it or a window frame that makes you want to glance out that window.”

Drawing that information out of clients is made easier by asking direct questions. “I delve into who my clients are as a couple and as a family,” Annemarie said “I ask them how they live in the home, about their friends, if they entertain often and cook daily.” Finally, she assigns homework, asking her clients to study design and decorating magazines to identify what they like and don’t like. “People know what they like but may not know how to express it. I want to visualize what’s in their mind.” The finished design project is a collaboration. “I love to mix and push the envelope and explore someone else’s tastes and bring that out.” Annemarie says. “I’ll guide their tastes to the proper scale, blend the color palette correctly, but at the end of the day, it must be their thumbprint.” SE SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY 13

With tastes and preferences that constantly evolve, she finds inspiration in everything around her “ as well as other designers’ creative work.” She explores different design genres and time periods and mixes and matches them together to form a “pleasing palette” and “unique personality” for each client’s home. “For example: A bold modern painting, ensconced in a gold leaf Rococo frame can hang magnificently above an Art Deco console.” Though their styles are different, the motherdaughter duo (Rosemarie is vice president; Annemarie is president) combine their strengths as 12 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

founders and owners of DiSalvo Interiors, a 16-yearold interior design firm based in Carle Place that handles residential and commercial interior design projects from Manhattan to the East End. Most of their residential commissions are on the North Shore of Nassau County. As a design team they share a mahogany partners’ desk in their second-story office in a converted 1880s firehouse. It is here where interiors are transformed from the mundane to the spectacular. Interior design plans for kitchens and baths are spread out on a grand onyx-top art deco table. Binders chock-full of fabric samples, wall coverings, wood finishes and furniture resources line the shelves and a farmhouse table. Each year, the DiSalvos design the interiors of eight to 10 new 10,000-square-foot homes and handle a dozen or so smaller redesign and decorating projects, Annemarie said. They also decorated a European villa outside Rome that once belonged to the grandfather of a client from Garden City and will be used as a second residence. Among the latest trends, they noted, are deep jewel tones of teal, orange and ruby along with monochromatic grays, including gray wood tones,

driftwood finishes and metal. Traditional lines mix with modern colors; patterns are starting to make a comeback; and marble countertops are gaining favor over speckled granite. By 9 a.m. each morning the DiSalvos are responding to dozens of emails from clients, builders and suppliers, and are “putting out fires” of a different kind. “In construction, a million things can go wrong: molding is warped, a marble shipment is delayed,” said Annemarie, who studied interior design at Fashion Institute of Technology. Rosemarie, who learned the trade at C.W.Post/ Long Island University near the end of a 23-year stint as a paralegal, typically takes on small design and decorating projects. Annemarie tackles ground-up construction or major renovations. A third designer, Keith Mazzei, a design coordinator, and a bookkeeping assistant round out the team. Initially the firm was a small furniture and design services boutique located first in Franklin Square, and later Garden City. “My job at the law firm was very rewarding, but my daughter gave me the ability to go for my dream,” Rosemarie recalled. She has no regrets. “The business is a blessing, and I am very happy we did it.” Two years ago, the pair decided to downsize the

retail portion of the business and expand their more popular interior design service. They moved the headquarters of DiSalvo Interiors to its current location. According to their website, some of their commercial redesign projects are for captains of industry such as Dean Witter in Manhattan, the Wall Street Regent Hotel and catering giant Leonard’s of Great Neck. Annemarie visits three to five job sites every day. “I work with the builder to make sure projects are progressing and that the finishes are being installed properly.” She keeps a pair of UGG boots in her SUV just in case a worksite is muddy, snowy or drafty. From the job site, she may drive to Manhattan or the Hamptons to meet a client to review architectural plans. Her task is complex. Designing a space not only

involves dressing up a room with beautiful furnishings and stunning fabrics, Annemarie said, but also changing the structure, sometimes transforming plaster walls to stone, adding beams to a ceiling, moving or changing the shape of a window. Aspects of a room are not properly modified without striving to find the “best potential in every space.” “When you know a client and what she wants, every area of a room should have a purpose,” said Annemarie, who caught the design bug years ago after viewing a spectacularly refurbished home in the Five Towns. “That purposed area can take the form of a corner with a reading chair or a fantastic piece of art that will make you want to wander over and ponder it or a window frame that makes you want to glance out that window.”

Drawing that information out of clients is made easier by asking direct questions. “I delve into who my clients are as a couple and as a family,” Annemarie said “I ask them how they live in the home, about their friends, if they entertain often and cook daily.” Finally, she assigns homework, asking her clients to study design and decorating magazines to identify what they like and don’t like. “People know what they like but may not know how to express it. I want to visualize what’s in their mind.” The finished design project is a collaboration. “I love to mix and push the envelope and explore someone else’s tastes and bring that out.” Annemarie says. “I’ll guide their tastes to the proper scale, blend the color palette correctly, but at the end of the day, it must be their thumbprint.” SE SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY 13

DRESS UP YOUR GARDEN

By LINDA SASLOW

Garden accessories—ranging from benches, fountains and chimes to statues, fireplaces, firepits, planters and pottery urns—are the finishing touches which personalize a garden and add character to an outdoor space. “It’s the accessories that make a garden your own,” said Donna Moramarco of Martin Viette Nurseries. “Some people prefer whimsical; others are more formal. The different styles and materials make accessories unique and when well placed, make an important statement in any garden.” Accent benches encourage you to stop and smell the roses.

GUILTY PLEASURES In a world that embraces the brand new, sleek, digital and mass-marketed, previously-owned, mechanical and limited-edition watches are luxury items that have truly stood the test of time. With their precision, time-proven movements and complicated features, these watches — whether strapped to the wrist or linked to a chain dangling from a pocket — convey an appreciation of fine craftsmanship from another era. And depending on the luxe brand name on their faces and the narrative behind their existence, they may also represent sound investments. Some of the most sought-after, previously-owned timepieces have appreciated as much as 40 percent in value since 2008, according to Matthew Gross, who buys and sells previously-owned and new watches at H.L. Gross in Garden City, while his brother, Brad, specializes in bridal jewelry. “The collectors’ watch market is definitely strong now and has gone up since the recession, when people were unloading them,” said Matt Gross, who has been journeying to domestic and international trade shows and auctions for nearly two decades to buy and sell classic time pieces. “Collectors can have three to four watches or over 100.” More often than not, the collectors are men —- not women — who are trading in a watch to trade up to an ever-scarcer and intriguing piece. “Men are drawn to mechanical timepieces that are a bit more rare, and they aren’t as concerned with fashion, while women are looking at watches from a style point of view,” said Michael Edelman, director of London Jewelers’ watch salon. Women also tend to hold onto watches because of their sentimental value. Generally, watches most in demand among the collector set are those that not only possess a name with uber-cache, such as Rolex, Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin, and tout such features as a perpetual calendar, chronograph and minute repeater, but are also scarce. An extremely fine and rare 18-karat yellow gold Patek Philippe World Time watch, dating back to 1953, sold at auction in Switzerland for $1,190,500 Swiss francs or about $1.26 million in U.S. dollars last May. “Part of their value is that they will never be made again, and people view them as an investment,” said Gross. In contrast, a brand new Patek Philippe World Time watch currently retails for $47,000. About 18 months ago, a platinum Panerai watch, which featured a Rolex movement and see-through caseback, sold at auction for about $220,000, or nine times more than its selling price a decade earlier. Its immensely appreciated value was, in part, the result of its limited-edition status; Panerai produced only 60 of these watches in the 1950s, according to Edelman. A notable provenance can also add to a watch’s attractiveness to buyers and increase its worth. In 2008, Eric Clapton’s 1971 Albino Rolex Daytona sold for $505,000, while in May, a Rolex Submariner, once owned by Isser Harel, who headed the Mossad, Israel’s national security agency, from 1952 to 1963, sold at a Geneva auction, for $263,748, which was nine times its anticipated high estimate.

of the watch is engraved in Hebrew with Harel’s name, as well as the Mossad motto around the State of Israel emblem. The condition of a previouslyowned piece’s case and the original box and paperwork that accompanied it also enhances a watch’s value. Yet a scratched crystal and frayed strap do not diminish a rare watch’s importance, since they can be replaced, said Gross. Collectors aren’t alone in their passion for distinctive timepieces. Rare, older watches have also captured the attention of the investment community, and in January 2011, Precious Time, a Luxembourg-registered hedge fund, was launched to take advantage of the escalating values of vintage watches immune to fashion’s whimsy. In a year’s time, the watch hedge fund, which has a physical inventory that includes an extremely rare 1954 stainless steel Patek Philippe with a pulsation dial, has already registered a 12 percent increase in performance, according to Miriam Mascherin, managing partner of Elite Advisers, which started Precious Time. “In these difficult times, investors are looking for diversification and good returns,” Ms. Mascherin said. “Investment in collectible watches combines enthusiasm and excitement with sound reasoning and performance.” SE

On a remote hillside tucked away on the grounds of the exclusive Village Club, a production assistant in an “ITALIA” soccer shirt bellows, “Picture!” Three crew members sitting on wooden crates munching spareribs fall silent as the cameras get ready to roll on a scene from the fifth episode of the hit TV series Royal Pains. The plot follows concierge doctor Hank Lawson in the Hamptons. (Spoiler alert: Sorry, East End lovers, the zombie episode was shot in a reconstructed barn in the Sands Point Preserve.) Contrary to what the script would have its audience believe, Royal Pains is shot mainly on the North Shore. In fact, spotting those yellow and black signs that point the way to the RP set has become something of a phenomenon for the show’s cognoscenti who post their sightings on www. onlocationvacations.com.

ists, wardrobe mistresses, hairdressers, caterers, grips and sound engineers is not so easy. In just one week, Royal Pains set up shop at Bayville’s Crescent Beach Club, a sound stage at Columbus Circle in Manhattan, and now, The Village Club at Sands Point. The show stores many of its props at Gold Coast studios in Bethpage where Man on a Ledge starring Sam Worthington was shot last year. Royal Pains is not alone. On any given week, Law and Order: SVU, Damages, Person of Interest, and Gossip Girls set up shop in locations as varied as Old Westbury Gardens, Glen Cove, and even Nassau County Correctional Facility in East Meadow. The new season of Married to the Mob films there and you might be surprised to know that scenes from Scent of a Woman with Al Pacino were also shot in one of this jail’s four empty tiers. “Filming in Nassau County has gone through the roof. Last year, the direct

economic impact was $90-million,” says Debra Markowitz, Director of the Nassau County Film Office in Mineola. “That’s really huge.” Although the Nassau County Film Office has been charged with attracting and retaining film, television and commercial industries for the past 23 years, Ms. Markowitz has observed some big changes since 2008. “During the recession, commercial work disappeared. It was replaced by TV series and larger feature films,” she says. She sees the return of commercials as “a positive indicator of the economy turning around.” In neighboring Suffolk last year, film, television and commercial industries brought in 4.7-million dollars of revenue. “That includes vendors, hotels, and suppliers of food,” says Joanne Minieri, the Suffolk County Commissioner of Economic Development. Despite an influx of such television shows as Damages, Revenge, and Pan Am, many visually stunning Suffolk locations are just too far from a given studio’s home base. “The reason we shoot Royal Pains

in Nassau County instead of the Hamptons is because we are locked into union regulations that state you have to shoot within a 30-mile radius of the studio zone. Our home studio is at Columbus Circle,” explains Mike Fucci, location manager for Royal Pains. “A Hamptons shoot would require that we budget two hours each way for travel time which would shorten our work day by four hours. Or we would have overnight housing costs for the cast and crew.” The unions involved include I.A.T.S.E. (stagehands and motion picture technicians), the Teamsters, and Local 399 of the Screen Actors Guild. Going back nearly a century, the 30mile zone has been a big attraction for some of Hollywood’s legendary filmmakers. In 1915, silent film producer Vernon Castle produced The Whirl of Life in Long Beach. The 1954 Billy Wilder classic Sabrina, starring Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart was shot in several locations around Glen Cove and Mill Neck. The 1995 remake with Harrison Ford was filmed at Salutations, the former J.S.

On a remote hillside tucked away on the grounds of the exclusive Village Club, a production assistant in an “ITALIA” soccer shirt bellows, “Picture!” Three crew members sitting on wooden crates munching spareribs fall silent as the cameras get ready to roll on a scene from the fifth episode of the hit TV series Royal Pains. The plot follows concierge doctor Hank Lawson in the Hamptons. (Spoiler alert: Sorry, East End lovers, the zombie episode was shot in a reconstructed barn in the Sands Point Preserve.) Contrary to what the script would have its audience believe, Royal Pains is shot mainly on the North Shore. In fact, spotting those yellow and black signs that point the way to the RP set has become something of a phenomenon for the show’s cognoscenti who post their sightings on www. onlocationvacations.com.

ists, wardrobe mistresses, hairdressers, caterers, grips and sound engineers is not so easy. In just one week, Royal Pains set up shop at Bayville’s Crescent Beach Club, a sound stage at Columbus Circle in Manhattan, and now, The Village Club at Sands Point. The show stores many of its props at Gold Coast studios in Bethpage where Man on a Ledge starring Sam Worthington was shot last year. Royal Pains is not alone. On any given week, Law and Order: SVU, Damages, Person of Interest, and Gossip Girls set up shop in locations as varied as Old Westbury Gardens, Glen Cove, and even Nassau County Correctional Facility in East Meadow. The new season of Married to the Mob films there and you might be surprised to know that scenes from Scent of a Woman with Al Pacino were also shot in one of this jail’s four empty tiers. “Filming in Nassau County has gone through the roof. Last year, the direct

economic impact was $90-million,” says Debra Markowitz, Director of the Nassau County Film Office in Mineola. “That’s really huge.” Although the Nassau County Film Office has been charged with attracting and retaining film, television and commercial industries for the past 23 years, Ms. Markowitz has observed some big changes since 2008. “During the recession, commercial work disappeared. It was replaced by TV series and larger feature films,” she says. She sees the return of commercials as “a positive indicator of the economy turning around.” In neighboring Suffolk last year, film, television and commercial industries brought in 4.7-million dollars of revenue. “That includes vendors, hotels, and suppliers of food,” says Joanne Minieri, the Suffolk County Commissioner of Economic Development. Despite an influx of such television shows as Damages, Revenge, and Pan Am, many visually stunning Suffolk locations are just too far from a given studio’s home base. “The reason we shoot Royal Pains

in Nassau County instead of the Hamptons is because we are locked into union regulations that state you have to shoot within a 30-mile radius of the studio zone. Our home studio is at Columbus Circle,” explains Mike Fucci, location manager for Royal Pains. “A Hamptons shoot would require that we budget two hours each way for travel time which would shorten our work day by four hours. Or we would have overnight housing costs for the cast and crew.” The unions involved include I.A.T.S.E. (stagehands and motion picture technicians), the Teamsters, and Local 399 of the Screen Actors Guild. Going back nearly a century, the 30mile zone has been a big attraction for some of Hollywood’s legendary filmmakers. In 1915, silent film producer Vernon Castle produced The Whirl of Life in Long Beach. The 1954 Billy Wilder classic Sabrina, starring Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart was shot in several locations around Glen Cove and Mill Neck. The 1995 remake with Harrison Ford was filmed at Salutations, the former J.S.

As president of the prestige firm that represents some of the most expensive and beautiful homes on the North Shore, Shawn’s depth of knowledge about the finest details makes him highly sought after by New York producers. He said, “I can walk into a home without missing a beat and talk about the highest quality materials being used as well as the mechanicals. I grew up in a family of interior designers and have been doing this for so long that it takes me half the amount of time it would take somebody else.” Not only is he able to capture the essence of a home with a quintessential sound bite, Shawn’s expertise allows the producer and camera crew to zero in on specific details. “I understand the level of quality; for example, I can recognize the exotic woods and the types of stones,” he said. In one recent “Living Large” segment which showcased a prestigious French chateau-style residence on Wheatley Road in Old Brookville, Shawn explained that the

SUMMER STYLE

S

ummertime, and the living is easy. School’s out. It’s the season to play. Fling open the French doors and let the outdoors in. That carefree attitude is evident in how we dress, how we dine, and how we entertain. The same summer spirit can also be reflected in your home. Small changes in décor can make your home feel cool, calm, relaxed and inviting—the perfect ambience for summer. Modifications may be as simple as swapping pillows, using slipcovers or adding a tropical blast to a room with a hanging green or flowering plant. Or you can opt for a head to toe, custom designed summer home makeover. Here are some “sizzling” ideas from design experts on how to give your home a new look for summer. Change the pillows and cushions: It’s one of the easiest ways to transform your home from a winter look to a lighter summery environment, said Mercedes

Soothing Summer Décor By Linda Saslow

Courland suggests putting that chenille spread in the back of your closet, and replacing it with a cotton or silk duvet—perhaps in bone, or white on white, accented by coordinating pillows for a monochromatic look, or with contrasting ones in bright yellow, orange or citrus green. Try also mixing and matching towels— combining white with splashes of bright color.

Rotate accessories: “De-clutter” is the mantra for summer time, said Faith Rosenthal of the Long Island Design Center. The theme of “less is more” creates an airy feeling that makes a living space feel more casual. Out with the heavy knick-knacks and in with fun, beach, and summery ones that are lighter and easier. Debbie Ubertini, a designer at 406 West Home Furnishings, suggests clear glass, seashells, lanterns and candles to accessorize during the summer. Glass picture frames and porcelain vases also give a lighter, more casual feeling.

Summer is a perfect time to be creative. That might mean replacing your wall art with posters of fun, sunny prints, watercolors of sunsets, photographs of beach scenes at different times of the day, or bright and whimsical abstracts. Whether posters or original works of art, these changes may add to that summery feel. Courland, owner of Courland Designs. If, for example, a room is decorated in shades of gray, switching the accent pillows to bright yellow from burgundy totally changes the look. Colorful pillows in brighter colors—solids, stripes, floral or lightly printed—are perfect summer accessories. Even outdoor furniture pillows work well for indoor summer decorating. 28 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

The designers agree — summer is the perfect season to break the rules. It could be as simple as introducing un-matching pillows, breaking up pairs of lamps, and mixing and matching towels. Or it could be a more dramatic change like painting one wall of a room a daring and unexpected shade of turquoise or lime, or adding an over-sized whimsical abstract print to a wall of your living room for a blast of summer cheer.

Add different lighting: Changing the lighting can make a big difference in a room’s atmosphere, said Rosenthal. A new lampshade on a table top—with a brighter color or a lighter fabric— brings a seasonal flavor to a room. Switch the bed linens and towels: It’s a season to lighten the weight of fabrics and add softer or more cheerful colors.

Change the window treatments: The heavy drapes were perfect for winter, but not the right feeling for the summer. Rosenthal advised hanging up a pole with lighter panels of linen, silk or another sheer fabric. Different window coverings will make a dramatic change in the entire room. Introduce lighter pieces of furniture: A wicker loveseat, a pair of wicker chairs, or a wicker coffee table brings a casual, airy ambiance to any room, and will blend with almost any décor. Switch out your coffee table with two ceramic Chinese urns turned upside down. Or try bringing a favorite outdoor piece inside—giving any room a more summery feel. Transform tabletops: Simply by changing the accessories on your kitchen or dining room table, you can create a new summer look, suggested Courland. Try using lighter colors and flowery placemats and napkins, or adding a splash of color with a bowl on the kitchen table filled with bright red and green apples or colorful limes and lemons.. Connecting with the outside surroundings also adds sizzle to summer décor. Even if you don’t have the urge to

tend a summer garden, fresh flowers and lush green plants or an herb container garden easily bring the feeling of outdoors inside. Flowers can be arranged in creative ways— perhaps in a pitcher, a mug or even a teacup.

MEN’S CUSTOM FASHION

Victor talbots:

Haute couture for tHe fasHion forward Guy by linda saslow

Victor Talbots, the couture fashion establishment in Greenvale, personifies elegant menswear. But many wonder whether there really is a man behind the name. Indeed there is. Just ask any savvy gentleman who has been fitted there for a tuxedo, had their clothing made to measure or shopped for fine mens suiting with labels like Brioni, Kiton or Ralph Lauren Purple Label . Victor Talbot Scognamiglio is a visible presence in the clothing store that bears his name. While he wears many hats—including those of designer, buyer, marketing director, image consultant and chairman—at least half of his week is spent on the floor beside his sales team. “I want to hear what my customers 30 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

think,” said Victor. “I am privileged to have an audience who appreciate unique things. And to be effective, you have to be hands on.” The legendary business, now located in a historic building on Glen Cove Road, was founded 28 years ago as an at-home shopping service. “I always had a love for clothing,” said Victor, now 51. “In college, when I got my first job at a formal men’s shop, I realized that I had a knack for business and I recognized the importance of detail.” After graduating from college, Victor got his first job in finance but longed to start a business of his own. For more than a year he moonlighted on weekends, calling prospective grooms and selling them elegant evening wear

for their upcoming weddings. When Victor learned of the finance company’s plans to relocate to Oregon, he took it as a sign: it was time to turn his dream into a reality. With a loan of $20,000, a van and one tailor, he started a traveling menswear company. Victor Talbots was born. By word of mouth his business grew. Several years later, Victor opened his first shop, committed to providing an environment befitting his designs. “It’s like a restaurant,” said Victor. “You can have the greatest product, but if the service is lacking, you’ll never go back.” Loyal customers have recognized the quality and integrity of the fashions, and have appreciated the expansion of Victor Talbots to include outerwear, accessories, shoes, and more casual

attire. Beyond the made-to-measure custom clothing department and the usual personal shopper, Victor Talbots offers a concierge service that analyzes your closet and helps to create an updated wardrobe. “Our customers like to see continuity,” Victor said. “A man likes to know that the same salesman who sold him his Bar Mitzvah suit can now sell him a tuxedo for his wedding.” Mark Zelniker, of Syosset, has been a Victor Talbots customer for more than 20 years, relying on the expertise of Darren, his favorite salesman. “He knows what works, and he has great taste,” explained Mark, who bought his first tuxedo for his son’s Bar Mitzvah, and has since brought both of his sons to the men’s boutique to share the experience. “I would never think of working with anyone else,” he said. “ I may pay a little more, but it’s worth it.” The business has recently expanded in several new directions—launched its own shoe line and fragrance, and will soon add a salon equipped with shave and shoe shine. A new E-commerce venture, GroomStars—a shopping service for grooms--is a joint venture among several vendors and as Victor explains, “a way to stick our toe in the water.” There is no stopping Victor Talbots. “You constantly have to re-invent yourself and stay current,” Victor emphasized. Then there are the younger customers who need more affordable fashions. “There is an entire generation of 1921 year olds, who have never put on a suit or tie,” Victor explained. “We have partnered with Hugo Boss and J Brand to create an experience for this younger generation and to open up the playing field for them. As they get older and make more money, they will hopefully grow into our label.” With one of his three daughters interested in joining the business, Victor is now looking at a space in downtown Manhattan, with plans to open a second Victor Talbots in the near future. “I’m proud of my products and I love what I do,” said Victor. “It’s not work, but an extension of my enjoyment.” SE

“I always had a love for clothIng,” saId vIctor, now 51. “In college, when I got my fIrst job at a formal men’s shop, I realIzed that I had a knack for busIness and I recognIzed the Importance of detaIl.”

Beyond the made-to-measure custom clothing department and the usual personal shopper, Victor Talbots offers a concierge service that analyzes your closet and helps to create an updated wardrobe. “Our customers like to see continuity,” Victor said. “A man likes to know that the same salesman who sold him his Bar Mitzvah suit can now sell him a tuxedo for his wedding.” Mark Zelniker, of Syosset, has been a Victor Talbots customer for more than 20 years, relying on the expertise of Darren, his favorite salesman. “He knows what works, and he has great taste,” explained Mark, who bought his first tuxedo for his son’s Bar Mitzvah, and has since brought both of his sons to the men’s boutique to share the experience. “I would never think of working with anyone else,” he said. “ I may pay a little more, but it’s worth it.” The business has recently expanded in several new directions—launched its own shoe line and fragrance, and will soon add a salon equipped with shave and shoe shine. A new E-commerce venture, GroomStars—a shopping service for grooms--is a joint venture among several vendors and as Victor explains, “a way to stick our toe in the water.” There is no stopping Victor Talbots. “You constantly have to re-invent yourself and stay current,” Victor emphasized. Then there are the younger customers who need more affordable fashions. “There is an entire generation of 1921 year olds, who have never put on a suit or tie,” Victor explained. “We have partnered with Hugo Boss and J Brand to create an experience for this younger generation and to open up the playing field for them. As they get older and make more money, they will hopefully grow into our label.” With one of his three daughters interested in joining the business, Victor is now looking at a space in downtown Manhattan, with plans to open a second Victor Talbots in the near future. “I’m proud of my products and I love what I do,” said Victor. “It’s not work, but an extension of my enjoyment.” SE

“I always had a love for clothIng,” saId vIctor, now 51. “In college, when I got my fIrst job at a formal men’s shop, I realIzed that I had a knack for busIness and I recognIzed the Importance of detaIl.”

The Smarter Home: Electronic Gadgets For Your Residence

Cool it fast! The VinPodium HC04. A Rapid Wine Chiller. $80 @ Smarthome.com

Restful channels. The Pillow Remote Control. $29.99 @ Brookstone.com

The Pillow Remote Control $29.99. Available at Brookstone.com Weight Staff

Did you have your heart set on a soothing glass of wine after a hard day’s work, only to discover that you forgot to chill the bottle? The VinPodium HC04.A Rapid Wine Chiller brings wine, champagne and other spirits to a palatable temperature in minutes as opposed to hours. It typically takes just 3 minutes to bring Bordeaux or Shiraz to the mid-60 degrees Fahrenheit, Beaujolais or Rose to the mid 50s Fahrenheit in 6 minutes, and champagne or sparkling wine can reach a frosty mid-40 degrees in 13 minutes. Plug in the unit, and then add ice cubes and water. Lift up the neck of the machine, and place your bottle of wine on the support base. Adjust the timer to the suggested amount of minutes. Press the start button and cool water flows around the bottle. When the unit stops, you lift up the neck, remove the bottle and you’re ready for that perfectly cool glass of wine. Cheers!

If you’re looking to track your weight, percentage of body fat and BMI, your first instinct might be to hire a staff of doctors and personal trainers. But owning a Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale is a little bit like having your own staff of weight management professionals on hand. This super-scale taps into your home wireless network and uploads all your fitness information to a private account whenever you step on the scale. On Fitbit. com, you’ll track the progress of your weight loss online. A graph provides a visual indication of how you fare with your weight, body fat percentage and BMI (body mass index) over time. Need someone to keep you on track with your goals? You’ll earn weight achievement badges whenever you lose 5, 10 or 20 pounds. Like-minded, weightconscious people are part of the Fitbit.com community and you can share ideas and statistics with them, or let your friends hear the good news via Facebook or Twitter. And don’t worry about your friends and family sneaking an online peek at your weight: you’re in charge of how much and which data that gets shared.

Mixology is reaching new heights. With a cocktail for every season, every occasion and perhaps every mood, bartenders and mixologists are creating cool new signature drinks. Though classic drinks like Manhattans, Tom Collins and Gin Slings are perennial favorites, cocktail culture has evolved beyond the once trendy, pretty in pink appeal of “Sex in the City” Cosmopolitans and oh-so-green Apple Martinis. With the recent tide of colored and flavored tequilas and a Baskin-Robbins assortment of vodkas including vanilla, cookie dough, citron and raspberry, cotton candy, and even PB&J -- yes, peanut butter and jelly ---all sorts of creative new cocktails are worth a shot. For health-conscious imbibers there are drinks made with Van Gogh’s acai blueberry vodka or ruby red, tart and sweet pomegranate liqueur. For dessert, think Godiva’s dark chocolate liqueur, double espresso martinis or a splash of Smirnoff’s Fluffed Marshmallow vodka on the rocks with S’mores. On the North Shore, summer siesta cocktails to beat the heat also include classic mojitos and magnificent margaritas. LUXURY taste tested cocktails in four of the North Shore’s hottest restaurant bars. Here’s what we found: A sign behind the bar at Besito Mexican Restaurant and Agave Lounge in Huntington reads, “All good tequila revives the brain, warms the heart, uplifts the spirit and overhauls the machinery.” From shooters to sippers to savours, the bar offers more than 75 different tequilas -- all from, you guessed

it- Mexico, to tempt your palette or quench your thirst . Next to a bucket of cut fresh fruit, Maya Moore, a bartender at Besito for two years, deftly squeezes limes and muddles mint preparing drinks. “The most popular is the Besito Patron Margarita,” Moore said, made with top shelf liquor and organic ingredients including pomegranate-tangerine juice infused into the classic cocktail. At $11, it’s a tangy, tart treat made with Patron Reposado, Cointreau, pomegranate-tangerine juice and fresh squeezed lime and served in a weighty, handblown old-fashioned glass. At 83 calories, Besito’s Partida Natural Margarita ($13) is the skinny girl’s Margarita of choice. Made with Partida blanco tequila, fresh squeezed lime and agave nectar, its all-natural ingredients won’t spike blood sugar. As the tequila menu advises, “Enjoy them slowly and respectfully.” Dock your yacht at Prime, An American Kitchen & Bar on Huntington Harbor, and head for the Cabana Bar by the Boardwalk or the Fantail Deck, an outdoor deck with a large round gas firepit and Adirondack-style lounge chairs. On the hottest days and nights, cool down with the perfect sinful delight, Prime’s Sweet Tea Lemonade ($14), made from Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, homemade lemonade and sour mix. Bartender Amanda mixed up this most popular sweet drink serving it in an extra tall glass. You can also never go wrong with Prime’s Pineapple Mojito, a delightful, cool mix of Malibu pineapple, muddled mint and lime and fresh pineapple. More urban bistro than typical strip mall joint, Bar Frites at Wheatley Plaza in Greenvale is part of the brothers George and Gillis Poll’s growing ensemble of upscale hap-

style. Savor it on Blackstone’s newly designed outdoor patio, opened on Memorial Day weekend. It’s a blend of Ciroc peach vodka, fresh white peach puree, and splash peach Schnapps with a Champagne topper. For paradise on Long Island, this is it. SE

THE MANY (ALL BUSTLING) FACES OF BEIJING By M.C. SUSSMAN

the Temple of Heaven, the symbol of Beijing, is surrounded by a park where locals drink tea, practice Beijing, the political, educational and cultural capital of the most populated nation in the world, the People’s Republic of China, is a rapidly evolving, bustling portrait of change. Broad boulevards and ultra modern skyscrapers sprawl across the city, sometimes replacing the traditional hutong neighborhoods of adjoining alleys lined with old-fashioned single story courtyard residences that played an important part of Chinese cultural history during the Ming and Qing dynasties. Throngs of Chinese, nearly all holding cell phones, stand or squat on street corners, waiting for a break in the endless the swarms of car, bicycle and scooter traffic on the concentric yet rectangular “ring roads” that circle the metropolis. Part of Beijing’s latest incarnation is as a modern shopping mecca stocked with the best American and global brands. The Peninsula Hotel lobby, for instance, has Chanel, Hermes, Prada, Gucci and other luxury brand shops that gives it the feel of a “mini Americana Manhasset,” said Shawn Elliott, President and CEO of Shawn Elliott Luxury Homes & Estates, who stayed there on a recent trip to the Chinese capital. To his delight, in the area were also Rolls Royce, Maserati and Lamborghini dealerships and upscale shopping malls that seemed be three miles long with many of the same retailers you’d find at Roosevelt Field or Walt Whitman mall as well as many Chinese brands. Shawn was in Beijing to speak at a luxury real estate conference about the benefits of living on Long Island 38 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

and in the United States and to participate on a panel on “what you can buy in New York for $10 million or more.” He gave a powerpoint presentation to real estate agents, investors, buyers and immigration agents on his top 25 properties. Recently there has been a large influx of wealthy Chinese buyers on the North Shore of Long Island and across the United States, drawn at least in part by the ability to have larger families and the fine local schools, Shawn said. While in China, Shawn’s favorite tourist jaunt was to the Great Wall, which was built between the 5th century B.C. and the 16th century A.D and has foothigh steps that are “almost like a Stairmaster.” For the record, he completed four levels. He visited Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, palaces and temples. Not to be missed were the traditional Chinese silk,

antiques, clothing and night markets. Along the way Shawn practiced the Mandarin he’s been learning via Rosetta Stone, the foreign language software. He took rides on rickshaws pulled by bicyclists and newer models towed by motorbikes and was awed by the overwhelming amount of car, bicycle and scooter traffic on boulevards so wide they make New York roads seem small. At the center of the city, the vast Tiananmen Square is the largest public square in the world, and the site of 1989 massacre of student activists by the People’s Liberation Army. Around the square are grand, voluminous buildings such as the Great Hall of the People, the Museum of Chinese Revolution, the Museum of Chinese History, the Chairman Mao Memorial Hall and the Monument to the People’s Martyrs, the Qianmen Gate and the Forbidden City. The must-see palace of palaces is the Forbidden City. Set in a green oasis that was once the private garden of Ming and Qing emperors and now a beautiful public park, it seems worlds away from the bustling boulevards and crowded markets. Home to the Imperial Court, it was relatively unscathed during the cultural revolution. The footpaths are lined with willow trees and there are Buddhist temples by the lake. Separately, the Temple of Heaven, the symbol of Beijing, is surrounded by a park where locals drink tea, practice calligraphy or tai chi. Further away is a newer landmark, the National

calligraphy or tai chi. Further away is a newer landmark, the National Stadium or Bird’s Nest from the 2008 Olympic Games. Stadium or Bird’s Nest from the 2008 Olympic Games. Among the remains from the medieval city is the Ming Dynasty Wall Site Park, the only remains of the city wall. Beyond sightseeing, dining in Beijing was a unique experience. At restaurants, the dishes just keep coming, though with the language barrier, it’s sometimes hard to know what you’re eating. Beyond familiar outposts of fine restaurants like Nobu, Zuma or Maison Boulud, Shawn described dining at Dadong Roast Duck Restaurant as “a tremendous experience.” The lean, headless ducks hang from black hooks, ready to roast in the restaurants’ brick ovens until the skin is crisp and the meat is melt-inyour-mouth tender.Think of it, Shawn said, as “a Peter Luger for duck.” SE SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY 39

HENDRICK’S TAVERN: THE POLL BROTHERS NEWEST VENTURE

The Poll Brothers, Gillis (on left) and George with George’s wife Kristin at their newest restaurant, Hendrick’s Tavern, in Roslyn.

By M.C. SUSSMAN

B

ecause five of their seven restaurants are within a three mile radius on the North Shore, restaurant kings George and Gillis Poll work hard to give each an identity to call its own. At the swank Americana at Manhasset, the Poll Brothers own Toku, a modern Asian restaurant. On the other side of the luxury destination shops is their Italian restaurant, Ciopollini. (The Poll Brothers‘ casual lunchtime counterpart, Ciopollini Pronto, is steps away, the place for a quick wrap, salad or bowl of roasted tomato soup, with indoor and outdoor seating.) Just down the road in Roslyn is Bryant & Cooper, their signature steakhouse. At Wheatley Plaza in Greenvale, Bar Frites, a French bistro draws an affluent suburban crowd to both the covered outdoor seating and inside the restaurant. They also own Majors Steakhouses in Woodbury and East Meadow. The most recent addition to Poll Brothers’ successful squadron of sophisticated restaurants is Hendrick’s Tavern in Roslyn on the landmark site of the old George Washington Manor. The first president dined there in 1790 when it was Hendrick Onderdonk’s estate, hence the name. Onderdonk also owned the Roslyn grist mill and the paper mill. “We had to be creative in having a concept that was different from the others,” Gillis Poll said. Unlike their other restaurants, Hendricks Tavern has event spaces, including a catering hall on the main level that accommodates 150 guests with dancing and a cocktail party-style lounge beneath the ballroom for private events. One of the two upstairs private function rooms upstairs accommodate s 35 guests; the other can hold 70. The ballroom overlooks a pond. At their other locations, “people would ask us if we could do birthday parties or business functions but it would be 30 to 40 people and we couldn’t do it,” Gillis

The wood-paneled walls in The main dining room are covered wiTh black and whiTe phoTographs from The broThers’ “eclecTic personal collecTion” “WE HAD TO BE CREATIVE IN HAVINg A CONCEPT THAT WAS DIffERENT fROM THE OTHERS,” gILLIS POLL SAID.

added. The extra rooms for private parties made the historic home “attractive.” They “revamped this place from head to toe in every which way,” Gillis said. Part of that renovation was the addition of a main bar to the restaurant, while keeping the “George Bar” which has numerous paintings of the first president on its walls. The tavern’s cozy living room has a fireplace and provides lounge seating beyond the main bar. It’s next to another dining room known as “the porch.” The wood-paneled walls in the main dining room are covered with black and white photographs from the brothers’ “eclectic personal collection,” George

Poll said. Seating along the walls and windows is on comfortable deep red banquettes; tables and chairs fill the center of the room.The ceiling is beamed and the original wide plank floors remain in the main dining room and the George Bar. Hendrick’s Tavern offers the same dry aged and prime steaks as Bryant and Cooper, a raw bar, artisan pizzas, tapas or small plates such as lightly fried panko-crusted avocado or king crab legs, appetizers including a Maryland crabcake or a sashimi-style Ahi Tuna Poke, salads, pastas and a wide selection of fish including Chatham Cod, grilled Branzino and seared Norwegian salmon. Sides range from lobster fried rice

to sweet potato mash -- made with cinnamon and sugar -- creamed or sauted spinach. For dessert, check out the white chocolate cloud cake that is reminiscent of an oversized Ring Ding and the bountiful fruit platter with pineapple, grapes, melons and berries. During an interview, the Poll brothers declined to name a favorite dish. “They are all our favorites,” George Poll said. Like their customers, choosing a dish depends on what they are in the mood for. “It’s a steakhouse but it’s a variety of things.” A bit bigger than a neighborhood bar, Poll called their newest endeavor “our take on the American tavern.” SE SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY 43

Calf farm road a TusCan Jewel in The norTh shore’s Crown By m.C. sussman

W

ith a commanding hilltop view of the surrounding paddocks and meticulously landscaped gardens, this five-acre Tuscan-like estate in Mill Neck is paradise found. A sparkling gem in the North Shore’s crown, the 15,000 square foot stucco and stone European country castle has a massive turret to the front with a smaller turret to the back. The splendor starts at the round entry forecourt. A large urn planter on a pedestal surrounded by abundant flowers grace its island. Above the arched double entry doors exquisitely detailed with wrought iron is an elegant Juliette balcony with a matching railing. Inside, the foyer is spacious and elegant yet warm and welcoming, with gleaming marble floors, a coffered ceiling and extensive moldings. Straight ahead, through the formal living room, are French doors leading to a bluestone balcony wrapping the main floor with access from nearly every room. Skirted by fanciful wrought iron railings, the broad balcony overlooks the dreamy

46 SHAWN ELLIOTT LUXURY

resort-like backyard, with a classic pool and spa, two waterfalls, outdoor kitchen and living room, and terraced gardens beyond. A shady terrace on a hillside provides a quiet space to enjoy the outdoors. To one side of the house is an elevated vegetable garden with built in irrigation. Down a distant slope, a 10-stall state- of-theart stable, designed for race horses, fits neatly onto the splendid equestrian property. The inside is equally captivating. To one side of the foyer, beyond a double-sided fireplace, is an elegant home office with full bath. To the other side, the large formal dining room has oak floor and a ceiling medallion. Beyond it is the spacious country-style kitchen with creamy white cabinetry and matching granite laced with gold tones on an expansive center island and a built-in brick pizza oven. Across from it, a curved breakfast room with two stories of windows overlooks the grounds. Curled off the kitchen is a doubleheight family room of regal proportion, accented by a limestone and marble fireplace. The grand staircase winds gracefully to the second floor, with a balcony overlooking the family room. The master suite includes an adjacent nursery to one side and a sitting room with a fireplace and a private balcony to the other. Inside the castle-sized turret is a round library with a vaulted gold leaf ceiling, a perfect getaway space to curl up with a book. The family bedrooms are spacious suites, each with its own bath. The house has a laundry room on each level. A grand staircase also winds to the cavernous lower level, outfitted with all the must have bells and whistles, from a 1200 bottle wine cellar to a large built in bar, a lounge like movie theater and a gym. In the spa, there’s a locker room, a large steam shower and a sunken, glass enclosed bubbly, effervescent Jacuzzi. Sip a glass of merlot as you soak and watch the flames flicker in the imposing stone fireplace or watch a movie on a large screen television above the fireplace. This two-year-old palatial home has six fireplaces, six bedrooms, seven full and two half baths, an in-law suite, staff quarters, and an elevator. All the floors have radiant heat. It is a treat not to be missed. Price Upon Request. Ben or Marion Matros (516)647-7488. SE
