Would You Pay $85 Million For The Great Gatsby Estate?
The charming village of Kings Point, New York, served as inspiration for F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic novel The Great Gatsby, which might explain some of the outrageous properties in the area. But the mind blowing estate in front of you reportedly inspired the set design for the 2013 film, proudly sitting on eight acres of waterfront magic about 45 minutes away from New York City.
Completed back in 1928, the Great Gatsby estate would have surely made Jay Gatsby himself feel overwhelmed. Boasting manicured grounds, with century-old trees, sculptured shrubs, and inlaid stone driveways, this luxurious property also features many other incredible amenities, from tennis courts to a stunning swimming pool, outfitted with a lovely cabana and swim-up bar.
The lavish estate features 18 bedrooms and 32 bathrooms, which are spread across the original mansion and two smaller mansions, called the Carriage House and the Rodney House, which function as guest homes. Showing off bespoke finishes such as marble, malachite, lapis lazuli, gold leaf, and agate, the extravagant interiors of this property were designed to impress just about anyone.
The main estate is also complemented by a massive 10-car garage, a 3,000-bottle wine cellar and everything in-between: a gorgeous spa and sauna, a hair salon, an impressive gym, racquetball court, and an incredible lounge that’s just perfect for a Great Gatsby party.
At the end of the day a large dock, that’s able to accommodate a 200-foot yacht, will help you make a big entrance or might prove to be the best way to start the trip of a lifetime. Exclusivity comes at a high price, and that’s $85 Million.
