88 Old House Lane is a “grand and lavish structure,” says Sabreen Qaiyum, sales associate for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Long Island. “The dramatic, geometric design is particularly striking when lit in the evening.”
The newly constructed home was designed by Stuart Narofsky to create a chic home with an emphasis on contemporary style. Complementing his designs are flawless interiors by Jennifer Rusch and furnishings mainly by Roche Bobois, according to Qaiyum. The undeniably modern feel is ideal for entertaining and also offers the highest sense of relaxation. Easy, walk-on access to the beach and expansive outdoor spaces, including a bar and deck space, are perfect for long, leisurely afternoons with family and friends.
“The atmosphere of the home is both welcoming and warm, while maintaining an elite and luxurious aura. This is achieved by the combination of art, technology and design features located throughout,” says Qaiyum.
Although the home is large — a multi-level of 15,000 square feet — the open spaces are inviting and comfortable. The floor-to-ceiling windows, rare works of art, and the 50-foot indoor pool will entice guests and encourage them to stay awhile.
Qaiyum highlights the tea area — a serene sitting area bathed in light — describing it as being “perfectly integrated with the other spaces within the home. The smokeless fireplace with hand-painted decorative rocks is most inviting and engenders an amazingly relaxing and contemplative experience.”
Already standing out among other homes for its individual style, 88 Old House Lane’s impressive integration of technology is award-winning. “The house is silver-level LEED certified for sustainability, making it one of the largest homes in the U.S. to achieve such an honor. Prestigious awards include the “Ceramics of Italy” honorable mention award, “Sustainable House of the Year” award from the AIA, as well as the HOUZZ “Best of Design” award,” according to Qaiyum. Smart home technology and eco-friendly systems such as geothermal heating and cooling, photovoltaic panels, and a sedum-covered organic roof make this home one of a kind. Additionally, iPads are embedded in the walls throughout the grand home. Technology such as this will allow homeowners to control all entertainment features, LED lighting, thermostat, shades and the home-wide audio system with ease and convenience.
Everything seems to be at your fingertips. Entertaining guests is simple with the lavish billiards room, wet bar, wine cellar, and more. The rooftop tee box, another unique feature, allows for 90-yard drives to the lush backyard golf green.
Truly at the height of luxury, the property features a celebrity-style helipad, its own spa, easy access to luxury shopping, and a spattering of inspiring statues. Qaiyum also notes that “the wonders of New York City are just 40 minutes away.”
Listed at $28 million, prospective buyers would be considered “power players,” according to Qaiyum. “88 Old House Land is for a buyer who understands that their property is worth more than that to them and that their ownership will set them apart from others.”
