Light reflects and shimmers through uniquely designed rooms, each with its own dramatic assertions. In a different tone, but no less dramatic, is the entertainment barn—with its open space and soaring ceiling. Visitors will also appreciate the comfort of the two-bedroom guesthouse. The home is sited on 3 acres of verdant grounds with a pool, a professional tennis court and surrounded by 7 additional acres of nature preserve. Downtown or the beach is minutes away and Manhattan is another 50.
