A 47 acre waterfront compound on Long Island complete with 20,000 square foot Tudor style main house has been reduced to $25 million. Known as Sassafras, the sprawling estate first hit the market in 2007 for $60 million. According to the listing, “The present owner designed the home paying homage to the British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, incorporating traditional Tudor architecture and the vernacular styles of south-east England style into a timeless masterpiece.” Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt rented the property in 2009 while Jolie was filming parts of Salt on Long Island. The main house includes 25 rooms with a grand entrance featuring a 48′ cathedral ceiling, a great hall, study, formal dining room complemented by a wraparound outdoor terrace with commanding water views, a baronial living room with exceptional fireplace, 8 bedrooms and 8 full and 4 half baths, enclosed dining veranda and a master suite offering 120 degree views of Long Island Sound and Connecticut.
Also on the grounds are two guest houses, each approximately 5,500 square feet, a log cabin “tea house” with stunning sea views, tennis court and beach cabana with full kitchen and deck. The grounds encompass extensive specimen gardens, exercise path, private beach with its own pier which can accommodate 3 jet skis, an 80′ motor yacht, 24′ sailboat, 30′ speedboat and two maintenance/chase boats with three additional moorings. There is also a 30′ x 60′ pool, gazebo with bar and hot tub. Sassafras is on the market for $25 million with Philip C. Laffey of Laffey Real Estate.
