It’s no wonder why so many star-studded individuals once admired this heavenly waterfront estate located inside the gated Edgewater Point Association, a safeguarded, historic establishment in the town of Mamaroneck, N.Y. The residence, which was designed by award-winning architect Robert Keller and has historic ties to renowned movie director D.W. Griffith and other prominent individuals, is listed by Larchmont agent Arlene Gibbs and Rye agent Louis Katsoris, and offered at $7,895,000.
Located in a waterfront setting sought after by the first American settlers, The Edgewater Point Association boasts a rich history and various community offerings including access to a beach and dock. Henry M. Flagler, a financial and railroad entrepreneur, dedicated much of his time and money into improving the area, building a great sea-wall around its mile of shore front, and caring for surrounding gardens. The community further evolved when James Fenimore Cooper, the renowned romance novelist, wrote a book called Satan’s Toe, discussing the neighborhood’s charm. Throughout the years, the association has additionally served as a gathering place for prominent historic names including John D. Rockefeller, Henry H. Rogers, John D. Archbold and Edwin Booth.
The original residence on the site was updated and maintained by important film industry leaders including motion picture director D.W. Griffith, who worked to enrich the beauty of its gardens and featured them in some of his most famous screen masterpieces. The property was most recently redesigned in 1999 by the award-winning architect Robert Keller, who created curvilinear architectural details, which are highlighted by a light-filled open-floor plan, flowing rooms and soaring ceilings. Situated on 1.5 acres of private land along the Long Island Sound, the 8,000 square-foot estate has panoramic shoreline views from virtually every room and its sweeping grounds, some stretching as far as the New York City skyline. The interior mimics the nautical nature of the home’s surroundings in each of its 15 rooms. Walls of glass, especially in the residence’s circular office, which offers nearly 360 degrees of expansive water views, maximize appreciation for the property’s picturesque surroundings. Numerous skylights, terraces and private balconies, accessed from two bedrooms including the master suite, further add to this scenic atmosphere.
“This magnificent home exemplifies waterfront living at its finest,” said Gibbs. “The Edgewater Point Association is not only a beautiful, distinguished neighborhood of Westchester County, but it is also located just 35 minutes from Manhattan, offering its residents the best of both worlds.”
“Having such a stellar residence with 350 linear feet of waterfront views stretching to New York City plus the extra amenities of a pool, beach and dock is a rare combination for any waterfront home in this price point,” said Katsoris.
Amenities include a gym, media room, saltwater pool and pool house equipped with changing and showering facilities, as well as a kitchen. A three-car attached garage and access to the association’s private beach complete the property.
