Designed by Henry Corse in 1937 and considered to be one of the last great estates constructed in Mill Neck, this spectacular English Tudor Revival has hit the market for $27 million. Built for Florence Calkin Dickerman, widow of financier Watson Bradley Dickerman, Wychwood sold in the 1950s to Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt II and again in the 1960s to one of his relatives, businessman and Pan American Airways founder Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney, The Wall Street Journal reported. Offering sweeping views overlooking Oyster Bay Harbor, Cove Neck, Centre Island, and Lloyd Harbor, this 13.19-acre estate is crowned by a hand-carved slate roof, leaded glass, and steel casement windows throughout. The main house features 9 bedrooms and 11 full bathrooms, all with finishes reminiscent of an English country manor. In addition to the main house, there are extensive landscaped gardens and terraces, a heated Gunite pool with pool house, and a carriage house with staff quarters. Wychwood affords the opportunity for entertaining on a grand scale, as well as the lifestyle of a private retreat. Wychwood is on the market for $27 million with Mary Ellen Cashman of Compass Realty.
