Nestled in the beautiful Mamaroneck shoreline community of Orienta Point lies an exquisitely redesigned waterfront estate and a true labor of love. Originally constructed as a pied-a-terre, one-bedroom home in 1979, 1100 Cove South Road now boasts a meticulously crafted carriage house style complete with five bedrooms, five and a half baths and 5,710 square feet of bright, spacious and luxurious appeal. The driving force behind this masterful renovation, current homeowner and interior designer of over 40 years Linda Negrin, takes great pride in both her home and passion for planning and creating magnificent custom designs from nothing but untouched space and big dreams. The residence is now for sale and listed by Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty Larchmont agents Willoughby Dobson and Ali Greene for $3,280,000.
Negrin began her career in 1972 with the establishment of Interior Sensations, a custom design business for both commercial and residential clients. Her company, mostly known for renovating kitchens and bathrooms, has greatly evolved within the Larchmont community, where Negrin has designed numerous homes throughout the years including her own.
“I’ll never forget one of my home renovation projects on Larchmont Ave,” said Negrin. “After completely gutting the inside of the home, the design and re-construction took a good four to five months to complete. Then, on its first day on the market, the newly renovated residence sold. After this great success, I was ready for my next big home transformation project.”
1100 Cove South Road represents the full realization of her ambitions as a home renovator. Once known solely for its exquisite location, this entirely revamped and custom-designed residence now stands as a stunning home in its own right. Beginning with the kitchen, Negrin describes the process of renovating this energy-efficient waterfront home as a huge undertaking, where numerous walls were eliminated, the roof taken off, and a 3,000-pound beam brought in to hold together a now complete open floor plan. Infused with natural light, the new wide open, flexible design, highlighted by walls of glass with water views from almost every room and over 2,000 square feet of porches, patios and deck balconies, seamlessly blends the home’s dramatic interior with dazzling views of the Long Island Sound and its surrounding wildlife. Additional features include hardwood floors throughout, sustainable surfaces and over 40 lighting fixtures, some with LED capabilities.
“In the home-selling process, location is the bottom line,” said Willoughby Dobson. “It’s important to make the most of the inside and outside attributes of the home, while also keeping in mind that buyers today like open spaces and a smart design flow, all of which are present in this extraordinary Mamaroneck estate located on a private road with water access and a golf-club just steps away.”
“Most buyers today don’t have time to renovate—they prefer a home that is move-in ready,” said Greene while discussing the importance of interior design and home selling. “It’s essential for a home not only to have function, but also a neutral palette accented by a thoughtfully designed vision.”
With its resort-like lifestyle, which offers beautiful waterfront and golf course views, a backyard dock, and lavish amenities, this one-of-a-kind Westchester County property is now maintenance-free, extremely livable and ready for its next adventure.
“I have been a part of the Larchmont community since 1977,” said Negrin. “Over the years, I’ve grown to love the area and all the opportunities it has provided me in truly transforming houses into homes. This is exactly what I did at 1100 Cove South Road, which has been my beloved home since 2007. By selling this home to a new, loving owner, I hope to give back just a portion of what this community has given to me.”
