Brand New 22,000 Sq. Ft. Long Island Château in Old Brookville, NY
Old Brookville, New York, United States
This property is currently off the market. A brand new 22,000 square foot château designed and constructed in the spirit of the Gilded Age of Long Island’s Gold Coast has hit the market for $60,000,000. The project, brought to fruition by architect Michael Jay Wallin and Schneider Architectural Works, P.C., was the dream of Raphael Yakoby, the creator of Hpnotiq and Nuvo Liqueur, who had previously listed the home for close to $100,000,000 last year. Yakoby drew inspiration from Château de Versailles and Château de Vaux le Vicomt when designing his home, known as Maison des Jardins. The 160-foot-long limestone residence sits on a private 8 acre estate accessed by a long private drive with massive twenty-two foot high iron gates flanked by limestone piers. The main body of the château consists of a central curved roof with pediment, two bay wide wings then connect to two outer mansard roofed towers. The graduated courses of Vermont slate create a roofscape upon which over forty dormers are placed. According to Newsday, the 8 bedroom, 8 full and 5 half bathroom home is available fully furnished with fixtures such as Baccarat crystal chandeliers and marble fireplaces from the 19th century. The home is reportedly 95 percent complete, with some of the lower level in the process of being finished. Located in the heart of the Gold Coast’s equestrian country, this property is convenient to major highways and railway, offering a quick commute to Manhattan. Nearby are golf clubs, a polo club, three major universities and just a short drive from boating, museums, premiere shopping and top restaurants. The village is as appealing today as ever. It is on the market for $60,000,000 with Douglas Elliman.
