5 Pin Oak Ct - Old Brookville, New York
Unique in design and history, this magnificent stucco-and-stone mansion, with slate roof, turret and huge mahogany arched entry doors, at first reminds one of an English gentleman’s country home. But as one wends his way around the exterior of the 8,700 square-foot house, with its walls of towering arched windows, bluestone terraces, manicured lawns and breathtaking rear property with pool and pond, the secluded property of 2.06-acres feels much, much larger and reminds one of those fabled movie star estates in Beverly Hills. This ties strangely into this home’s interesting past, when it was owned by the notorious Jordan Belfort, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” recently portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie by the same name. Truly designed for partying on a grand scale as Belfort loved to do, it has been exquisitely transformed by its present owners into a gracious and inviting home, impeccably appointed with stunning architectural details and the quintessence of tasteful interior design. But it still remains an entertainer’s paradise of grand proportions. Located in the scenic and stately community of Old Brookville on a quiet cul-de-sac enclave of equally gorgeous residences, this exceptional estate is convenient to several golf courses and is within easy reach of beaches, boating, delightful village shopping and dining, and the Long Island Railroad, putting it within a comfortable commute to Manhattan. Enfolded by a myriad of mature trees, this grand mini-estate welcomes guests with a circular drive and two electronic-gated entrances, a spacious front courtyard and a raised circular bluestone entrance terrace. The stone driveway wraps around to a second large courtyard serving the 3-car attached garage. Across much of the rear of the manse, the expansive bluestone terrace, with built-in grill, overlooks a wrought iron balustrade to the sparkling, inground Roman pool with sizeable brick patio, and cabana/pool house. A picturesque pond is shaded by lush trees at the rear of the property. Exquisitely finished, the home’s interior says, Welcome!” the minute its massive arched entry doors open to the sun-drenched, 2-story entrance foyer with its harlequin designed marble floor, French doors opening to the rear terrace and awe inspiring circular staircase ascending inside a turret with diamond pane window, teacup ceiling and fanciful aviary mural. A nearby hall provides access to a cloak room and elegant powder room. Three steps lead down into the ballroom-sized sunken living room. Guests will be enthralled by the extensive fielded panels framing beautiful upholstered insets plus the gorgeous inlaid wood floors, hand-carved stone fireplace and the soaring tray ceiling. Off the living room and the foyer, a splendid entertainment complex includes a warm and inviting den with towering arched windows and a wall of mahogany built-ins with media center; a striking lounge boasting an oversized stone fireplace and high black ceiling with oversized dentil crown molding; and the richly adorned and amiable billiards room offering a walk-in wet bar with seating. A high coffered ceiling and walls enveloping huge Palladian-style windows are adorned with custom-painted murals. On the opposite wing of the house, the harlequin marble floors extend off the foyer into a gallery and adjoining formal dining room. Here, sunny vistas of the rear property are enjoyed through towering arched windows that echo the arches in mahogany doors accessing the glorious Clive Christian French country kitchen. With an elegance reflecting the rest of the home, this bright and spacious workspace has all a gourmet chef could desire from extensive marble-topped custom cabinetry, including a large center island with seating and prep sink plus a farm sink beneath a sunny bay window flanked by 2 dishwashers. High end appliances include a Viking 6-burner and griddle gas cooktop, a double-oven, microwave, wine cooler and trash compactor. The charming breakfast area enjoys a gas fireplace, bay window with window seat and 2 doors to the rear property. A service area off the kitchen includes a laundry room, walk-in pantry, back stairs and access to the garage. On the second floor, the opulent master suite is in a wing of its own that includes a palatial bedroom with an extra high tray ceiling and fireplace plus a sunny sitting room. A spacious Edwardian-style master bath features rich mahogany wainscoting and cabinetry resembling fine furniture. It includes a throne-like whirlpool tub, twin vanity, dressing table and steam shower. An adjoining four-season dressing room is a dream come true with ample custom closets, dentil crown molding, a dressing table, a huge marble-topped center island, windows and a tray ceiling with custom –painted sky mural. Four additional bedrooms, each with a designer bath en suite, will take one’s breath away with their stunning designs included upholstered walls, gorgeous coordinating window coverings, and luxur
