This historic waterfront estate on the New York Gold Coast will take your breath away. There are homes with nice gardens, and then there are spectacular gardens that also include a home. This unique mansion is definitely the latter – it sits on a spectacular 32 acres of land, with incredible garden design ideas, woodland, stables, and a working farm that offers unparalleled views of Long Island Sound.
This estate is so exclusive that it has been owned by only two families since 1929. Throughout the Roaring Twenties, it was used for luxurious entertaining, with famous guests including F.Scott Fitzgerald. It is believed that 10 Lands End Road became one of the properties that inspired the extravagant setting of The Great Gatsby (1925).
There is no doubt that this estate is one of a kind, not least because of the enormous grounds that offer almost limitless opportunities for being in nature. From secluded formal rose gardens to informal meadow areas and woodlands, the outdoor spaces will take the future owner on hours of walks.
Exquisitely maintained groves, rose arches, pergola ideas, and walkways give the grounds a romantic and slightly rustic look that is a million miles away from urban life. This is despite the fact that Locust Valley where the estate is located is only an hour's drive from New York City.
The Lands End Manor is also perfectly suited to equestrian enthusiasts too. The estate includes a five-stall stable with a one-bedroom groomsmen apartment and four-car attached garage. Additionally, there is a six-bedroom guest house, caretaker cottages, greenhouses, pool and Georgian pool house.
And for those who are really serious about growing plants and want plenty of greenhouse ideas in their outdoor space, there is an enormous greenhouse that is perfect for growing exotic plant species and citrus trees. The beautiful glass structure sits on an immaculately maintained lawn area.
This luxurious estate will delight whoever becomes its extremely lucky next owner, with plenty of luxury to offer in its seven-bed, seven-bath manor. However, there aren't many homes in the world that can offer quite this quality of outdoor experiences, from gardening to walking to horse riding. 10 Lands End Road is on sale by Douglas Elliman for $28,500,000.
