Richard Gere, star of Pretty Woman and Primal Fear, among many others, is selling his amazing Long Island bay compound. The dream home consists of 3 single and separate lots, spans an impressive 6.30 acres and includes 300 ft of bay frontage, dock permits and room for tennis. The anchor of the property, the main house known as Strongheart, was originally built in 1902. It has since been renovated to the highest level possible while still retaining all of its original charm. The home is now geothermal making it incredibly energy-efficient.
The majestic Manor includes formal living and dining rooms, a gourmet chef’s kitchen, a number of inviting sitting and entertaining areas, fireplaces throughout, and a screened-in porch spanning almost the entire length of the house. The compound boasts 2 completely renovated guesthouses for a grand total of 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. Also found on the property are several garages, a gym and a basketball court. The incredibly landscaped property also includes a 60 feet heated pool overlooking the bay and stone gardens.
A beautiful bridge over the private, waterfront pond leads to a charming tea house located in the center of the pond and continues towards the future dock and beach. Rolling lawns, flowering gardens, specimen oak trees and an outdoor fireplace pavilion are only a few of the additional features that make this property so spectacular. Mesmerizing views of Peconic Bay and Mashomack Preserve are available from essentially anywhere on the Estate. This is truly a unique property that can never be replicated.
