An expansive contemporary house in Centre Island, New York, that’s situated on more than 3 acres of land with 440 feet of water frontage, has hit the market for $12.5 million.
Known as Eventide, the gated property was designed in 2001 for the owners in an exclusive neighborhood with celebrity residents like Billy Joel, according to Mr. Shawn R. Elliott of Nest Seekers LLC, who co-listed the property with Zachary Elliott, also of Nest Seekers, last week.
“With 440 feet of direct water frontage and a private beach, Eventide is a shining example of contemporary architecture. It was designed to take advantage of the awe-inspiring ocean views,” Mr. Shawn Elliot said.
The 11,000-square-foot residence has six bedrooms and nine bathrooms and features a two-story entry hall, a waterfront formal living room, a dining room, a chef’s kitchen and a wood-paneled office, according to the listing.
The finished basement provides opportunities to add other luxurious amenities. On the park-like grounds is a bocce ball court, a waterfront pool pavilion with a full bar, an outdoor kitchen and a pool house that is also fully equipped with a kitchen, according to the listing.
With an asking price of $12.5 million, the home is currently the most expensive on the market on Centre Island, according to Mr. Elliott and the Multiple Listing Service.
Despite its name, Centre Island is actually a 1.1-square-mile peninsula, part of the township of Oyster Bay in Nassau County. It;s about 37 miles from midtown Manhattan.
