Share
Standing majestically on a bluff overlooking the confluence of Cold Spring Harbor, Oyster Bay and Long Island Sound, with a lighted staircase descending to over 1000 feet of its own beachfront and 160-foot deep-water dock, this renovated, 3-story, brick and limestone, turn-of-the-20th-century Tudor mansion is truly a treasure of immeasurable proportions. With a history dating back long before the Revolutionary War, its 10+ acre grounds, with sweeping meadows, lush lawns, and acres of award-winning formal gardens, have seen everything from English soldiers repelling rebels to celebrity guests enjoying a breathtaking sunset while dance music wafts on the evening breeze from the ballroom. Imagine shooting your next movie, TV series, commercial, documentary or short in such a serene and magical setting far from the hub bub of commerce yet less than an hour from New York City. Ideal for creating settings on a grand scale, this property, located in Lloyd Harbor’s Fort Hill includes an indoor squash court, separate wing with ballroom and expansive guest suite, a commercial-sized state-of-the-art kitchen, solarium, banquet-sized dining room, verandas, terraces, balconies and much more. Approached by a circular courtyard, the manse welcomes visitors through a porte-cochere to a second circular courtyard. Reached by a separate drive, an impressive 5,000+ sq ft garage built in 1994, closely resembles the main house and appears to be as old. Throughout the home, the exquisite detailing and craftsmanship dating back more than 100 years, has been masterfully restored to its original glory as seen in the stunning coat-of-arms displayed in one of many stained-glass windows and an exterior limestone relief, or the high coffered ceilings, inlaid wood floors, linenfold paneling and intricate millwork. Style of Location Fort Hill Estate is an historic landmark home situated on over 10 bucolic acres resting on a bluff overlooking Cold Spring Harbor and the Long Island Sound. This beautiful Tudor Revival home is surrounded by sprawling lawns, mature trees and beautiful formal gardens.The westerly views are the best Long Island has to offer. Style of Garden The formal walled gardens are inspired by the classic English garden complete with formal beds, herringbone brick paths, a fountain, trellis patio, large potted plants and greenhouse. It is divided into three sections: The Children's Garden with statuary, greenhouse and playhouse; The Main Garden complete with fountain, benches, flower beds and trellis patio enclosure; and, The Rose Garden. While there are 18 bedrooms in the mansion, there is an additional apartment over the garage and other rooms that could easily be turned into bedrooms to accommodate even more people staying overnight.
