1410 Wolver Hollow Rd - Upper Brookville, New York
UPPER BROOKVILLE. Ensconced on approximately 5 magnificent acres of sweeping level lawns nearly surrounded by gentle wooded hillsides and lush foliage, this majestic young, over 7,000 square-feet, brick manor offers a sense of total seclusion and peaceful vistas at every turn. Guests are welcomed via a long, winding drive to a circular courtyard where wide stone steps lead up to the elegant front portico. On each side, bluestone walkways wrap around the entire house while passing by colorful, formal gardens and a large bi-level bluestone patio. Built just before the New Millennium, this classic, sun-drenched, center-hall Georgian colonial, with its exquisite detailing and high-end finishes, creates the perfect setting for luxury “Gold Coast” living. Gleaming hardwood floors, high ceilings with elegant moldings, spacious, sunny rooms, 7 bedrooms, 5 full baths, 2 half-baths, and several marble-faced fireplaces create a perfect venue for gracious entertaining. Upper Brookville has long been a popular location for leaders of industry and finance to build their grand estates. According to Bloomberg News, it consistently ranks among the top 15 wealthiest communities in the United States. Its beautiful, wooded countryside is dotted with gorgeous properties. Its residents enjoy a great location convenient to boating, golf, equestrian facilities, quaint village shopping, museums, and Long Island Railroad putting them within approximately a 40-minute commute to Manhattan. Enter through oversized entry doors and be enthralled by the floating bridal staircase and inlaid marble floors in this open and airy 2-story entrance hall. Both the formal living room and banquet-sized formal dining room boast herringbone floors, tray ceilings, striking custom fireplaces and large French windows. A butler’s pantry with wet bar leads into the expansive eat-in gourmet kitchen.

Entered from the kitchen and the foyer (through pocket doors,) the sizable sunken den is flooded with sunny vistas through 3 walls of windows and French doors to the formal garden. Extra tall ceilings are accented by massive dentil crown molding while herringbone floors and built-in bookcases add to the room’s stunning architectural detailing. A study with fireplace and built-in cabinetry, a guest/staff suite with bath, 2 lovely powder rooms and a service entrance with access to the attached 3-car garage complete the main level.
