Water Mill Mansion – $58,500,000
Now this is the type of Estate that has great ‘Aerial Appeal’ and even better ‘Curb Appeal.’ A lot of homes you see nowdays can look amazing from the sky, extremely large and well designed and than you either see them in person or see the images and they are disgusting! For me – ‘Aerial Appeal’ is just as important as ‘Curb Appeal’ so I’m happy to see this one gets an A+ in both departments. The design of the home is very symmetrical which as a rule I don’t normally like but in this case I feel it works very well. I like how the pool extends long ways from the rear of the home with an infinity edge over looking the sunken Tennis Court. There’s tons and tons of exterior patio space for entertaining and plenty of lawn space for other activities.
Right off the bat I was impressed with the Grand Entry Hall, I almost always like dual staircases and I’m very impressed with the flooring they chose – it’s very unique. All of the spaces in the home are expansive and oversized including the Gourmet Chef’s Kitchen. At first glance I wasn’t overly impressed with it as it doesn’t go with the style of the rest of the home, than I thought maybe it’s the Butler’s/Chef’s Kitchen but I don’t think that’s the case. It’s equipped with very high end fixtures, appliances and finishings and enjoys massive windows looking onto the property. I think this is one room that I would need to see in person to determine whether or not I truly like it.
Overall I love this house. The detail throughout, the quality of materials, different textures and styles used make this home truly unique. The Listing Site suggests the Square Footage is 2,000 – which is clearly wrong so I put it as Unknown. If by chance you know the correct square footage or have more pictures of the home please contact me and let me know!
