This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a truly spectacular waterfront property on the Gold Coast in North Haven, which is more attractive because it’s Richard Gere’s former home. This estate in Actors Colony Road, in the prosperous Hamptons area, 90 miles from New York was built in 1902. It’s been renovated and expanded since then. Now, the bay front compound, which consists of 3 single and separate lots, spans an impressive 6.30 acres and includes 300 ft of bay frontage, dock permits and room for tennis. The anchor of the property, the main house known as Strongheart, is now geothermal making it incredibly energy-efficient.
The majestic Manor includes formal living and dining rooms, a gourmet chef’s kitchen, a number of inviting sitting and entertaining areas, fireplaces throughout, and a screened-in porch spanning almost the entire length of the house.
The compound boasts 2 completely renovated guesthouses for a grand total of 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. Also found on the property are several garages, a gym and a basketball court.
The incredibly landscaped property also includes a 60 feet heated pool overlooking the bay and stone gardens. A beautiful bridge over the private, waterfront pond leads to a charming tea house located in the center of the pond and continues towards the future dock and beach.
Rolling lawns, flowering gardens, specimen oak trees and an outdoor fireplace pavilion are only a few of the additional features that make this property so spectacular. Mesmerizing views of Peconic Bay and Mashomack Preserve are available from essentially anywhere on the Estate.
Previously listed for $65 million, this magnificent place can now be yours for a mere $47,5 million.
