The timeless six-bedroom contemporary offers a pool, two acres of landscaped grounds and an easygoing indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
The late master architect Norman Jaffe was justly famous for the dozens of strikingly contemporary beach houses that he crafted in the Hamptons in the 1970s and ’80s. This updated 1977 Jaffe gem is a tad closer to Manhattan, at 15 Horseshoe Road in the leafy and storied Nassau County village of Old Westbury.
With more than two acres of flat lawns and rolling grounds, a saltwater pool, and multiple decks, covered patios and terraces, this six-bedroom, nine-bath estate offers indoor-outdoor living at its very best. And with 6,835 of interior square footage, there is certainly plenty of room to spread out and find your own space.
The primary bedroom suite is set well away from the public rooms, with a romantic fireplace, new carpeting, a marble bathroom, a large dressing room, a private deck and a tucked-away home office. There is also a home theater and a two-car attached garage on this level. Upstairs you’ll find a mezzanine-level gym with wide-angle views of the landscaped property and a second floor with three en suite bedrooms and a gigantic walk-in cedar closet.
The lower level offers a spa area with sauna and steam and a full bathroom, a rec room with a pool table, wine storage, a commercial-grade laundry room, another bedroom and a bonus room (yoga perhaps?).
The mature trees and gardens here are gorgeous (and very private). Should you ever need a little inspiration for your own garden, the 200-acre Old Westbury Gardens is just a five-minute drive from the house. The Americana Mall in Manhasset, known as the East Coast’s Rodeo Drive, is also close at hand.
