Newly constructed Old Brookville home that was listed over the summer for just under $100 million, built by an entrepreneur to resemble a French château, is coming back on the market this week for $60 million.
Designed and constructed in the spirit of the Gilded Age of Long Island’s Gold Coast, he home, named Maison des Jardins, is being sold by Raphael Yakoby, the creator of Hpnotiq and Nuvo liqueurs. It is filled with multimillion-dollar materials and fixtures and is available fully furnished.
The 160-foot-long limestone residence sits on a private 8 acre estate accessed by a long private drive with massive twenty-two foot high iron gates flanked by limestone piers. The main body of the château consists of a central curved roof with pediment, two bay wide wings then connect to two outer mansard roofed towers. The graduated courses of Vermont slate create a roofscape upon which over forty dormers are placed. According to Newsday, the 8 bedroom, 8 full and 5 half bathroom home is available fully furnished with fixtures such as $2.5 million Baccarat crystal chandeliers and marble fireplaces from the 19th century.
For over a century, Long Island’s Gold Coast has been a favorite destination for Manhattan’s captains of industry and finance to make their home. Its gently rolling verdant hillsides are dotted with magnificent estates that testify to the beauty of the area. Located in the heart of the Gold Coast’s equestrian country, this property is convenient to major highways and railway, offering a quick commute to Manhattan. Nearby are golf clubs, a polo club, three major universities and just a short drive from boating, museums, premiere shopping and top restaurants.
