Owl Hill is a secluded estate spanning over 27 acres on Long Island’s famed North Shore - an enchanting retreat where nature meets the luxury of old-world grandeur offering peace and tranquility only an hour east of New York City and minutes to the water.
A private circular driveway transports you to another world as it winds past wooded forest, rolling lawns and majestic trees until you arrive at a classic and elegant 6,500+ square foot main residence that sits atop a hill among towering oak and maple trees. Built in 1907 by world-famous architect Henry K Murphy with extraordinary craftsmanship and one-of-a-kind details throughout, the house preserves the elegance and integrity of the turn of the last century. This unique home boasts 5 ensuite master bedrooms, a prodigious music/living room, an elegant dining room, a formal library, a separate wing with 3 staff bedrooms, a quintessential artist’s attic, a sprawling basement and a wrap-around porch with views across the landscaped lawns. Additionally, there is a separate 2-car garage (with upstairs studio apartment) and a gunite pool with cabana nestled in the forest.
Allow the roaring fires from the 8 majestic fireplaces to effortlessly traverse you from the bustle of the big city to complete, cozy serenity. With original tiger oak and mahogany hardwood floors, moldings and details throughout, soaring ceilings, and original pocket doors, this home is a treasure hidden within its own forest.
Located only minutes from the Long Island Sound, the Long Island Expressway, the LIRR, private access beaches, golf courses, equestrian activities and all amenities, Owl Hill offers the best of both worlds: ultimate privacy and convenient access.
Currently 2 separate tax lots; further subdivision possible.
