Hearts will skip a beat upon visiting
this hidden treasure, one of Old
Westbury’s best-kept secrets.
An interesting historic past makes
this captivating self-contained
private resort set on 16 beautiful
acres surrounding a sophisticated
10,000-square-foot mansion is a truly
rare find at $13,900,000.
Made for entertaining, the one-ofa
kind solid brick beauty was built in
1987 by the current homeowners who
transformed what was once an old
horse farm into a sprawling estate.
Driving down the long, winding,
tree-lined road and past the private
gate leading to the grand home gives
one the feeling of being in a movie.
In fact, the estate has been featured
in 100-plus films, commercials, and
famous music videos.
There are seven charming renovated
legal residences on the grounds,
two barns, a U-shaped stable (there’s
potential for horses), and a unique
tower that all date back to the 1880s,
according to owner Deborah Zayas,
who pointed out that the land was
once owned by Quaker farmers and
French doors in the huge living room/den open onto a palatial patio, (vine-covered arbor) and Olympic-size
pool and jacuzzi, all situated on four private, gated acres. (The patio offers views of Old Westbury Gardens,
which border the estate.)
