8220 NARROWS Avenue - Bay Ridge, New York
AS SEEN ON NBC 'S OPEN HOUSE AND FEATURED IN ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST, THIS MANSION IS NOTED BY TIME OUT AS ONE OF THE '30 MOST BEAUTIFUL NYC BUILDINGS'! Once upon a time...when the now trendy Bay Ridge with its magnificent bay views of Manhattan and Verrazano Bridge was "an oceanfront getaway for the city's rich and famous", a gifted architect was commissioned to build what the Daily News would call "the most magnificent residence in all of New York City" or, more commonly, the legendary "Gingerbread Mansion". This spellbinding 5,746 SF one-of-a-kind home is nestled on a PRIVATE 20,000 SF lot (think 10 townhouses!) for an enchanting coastal retreat with SEASONAL WATER VIEWS JUST 20 MIN. TO DOWNTOWN MANHATTAN! The home's magic lies in its master craftsmanship which combines the beauty of the natural environment with fairytale lore and artistic engineering genius. The house, built from uncut stone, brilliantly conforms to the rolling topography of the land with a pitched roof and gabled windows straight out of the Hobbit. A captivating archway leads to a secret oasis of emerald lawns and flowing fountains as well as the home's private entrance and three car garage. Spacious rooms and an open layout reveal glittering stained glass windows, intricate woodcarvings, hand-painted ceilings and whimsical door knockers. Meticulously maintained and modernized with only 4 owners spanning a century, you will want to entertain or simply relax in tranquility - but beware - with its multiple fireplaces, coffered candlelit dining, music and fountain rooms, this house was made for falling in love and magic...
