TOP TEN REAL ESTATE DEALS
A Long Island mansion and equestrian estate that has been a big player in the thoroughbred racehorse business is up for sale for $10 million. The listing, which includes a 15,000 square foot home and 10-stall stable, was also a filming site for several movies and TV shows, including ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ starring Leonardo DiCaprio and episodes of the TV series “Elementary.”
About 30 minutes from New York’s Belmont Park, close to Manhattan and the Hamptons, the Mill Neck property includes the six-bedroom home on five acres of rolling pastures, lawns and trees, an apartment and tack room, paddocks and a merry-go-round. About 100 race-winning horses have trained at the facility.
The French chateau-style home with a turret and steeply pitched roof sits at the end of a long driveway in front of a courtyard and lush landscaping. Home features include wood and marble floors, six fireplaces, extensive woodwork, wine cellar, mahogany bar, fitness center, hot tub room, poker room and a movie theater. In the backyard is a resort-style entertainment complex with an outdoor kitchen, heated saltwater pool, waterfall and koi pond, multiple patios, and year-round gardens.
Mill Neck, named after a 17th-century sawmill, is one of the most expensive ZIP codes in the United States, consisting mostly of large homes on scenic grounds. It is often compared to the Hamptons and is minutes from President Teddy Roosevelt’s home in Oyster Bay.
The estate is listed with Regina Rogers by Douglas Elliman. ¦
