Versailles-Inspired Mansion on Long Island, New York, Hits Market for $21.9 Million

A mansion on Long Island, New York, that was built to look like the castle at Versailles, is on the market for $21.9 million. “The home is perfectly positioned to take advantage of views of the towering trees, the beautifully landscaped yards, the cabana and the water features,” Ms. Rogers said.

Designed by Long Island-based Michael Jay Wallin Architect in 2011, the mansion features a symmetrical exterior with a Vermont slate roof and limestone framed doors and windows. The interior boasts a spiral sculptural three-story custom staircase, an elevator, French doors, French limestone flooring, limestone archways and limestone wood-burning fireplaces, according to the listing. The three-story architectural stairs are a work of art, listing agent Regina Rogers said. Other design features include soaring ceilings, custom mahogany millwork and antique wood beams.

The home has seven bedrooms, nine full bathrooms and four half bathrooms. On the lower level is a 2,000-square-foot recreation room with a custom built-in bar, a media room; a mahogany wine cellar and tasting room; a gym; and a family room, the listing said.

“My personal favorite space is the European-style kitchen, which has exposed antique wood beams, reclaimed French limestone floors, and modern amenities and high-end appliances,” Ms. Rogers said. “It’s an entertainer’s dream.”

The home is fully equipped with smart home technology, Ms. Rogers said. “It’s very new, although it looks like it has been there for hundreds of years,” she said.

Additionally, the property has a custom, 1,500-square-foot cottage with two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. Sitting on its own 7-acre lot, the guest house has the potential to extend up to 14,000 square feet, Ms. Rogers said.

The sellers bought the property in 2008 for an undisclosed amount, property records show. They could not be reached for comment.

Located in the Gold Coast village of Mill Neck, the property is about 45 minutes from both Manhattan and the Hamptons. Banksy’s Love is in the Air, screen print in colors, 2003
