Villa Maria, Water Mill, NY, United States

Description: “Villa Maria is an estate in Water Mill, New York. Built as a private residence in 1887, the villa itself was extensively remodelled by Brooklyn-based architect Frank Freeman in 1919. It later became a convent and spirituality center, before recently becoming a private residence once again. The building is considered a Long Island landmark. Villa Maria was originally built in 1887 as a “rambling, Queen Anne-style summer house” for partners, cousins, and industrial financiers Josiah Lombard and Marshall Ayres, Jr. of the Lombard, Ayres & Company. The original owners, wanting to put something decorative on this one-acre front lawn, bought the beautiful Corwith Windmill for $750 in 1891, from its location in North Haven, and had it hauled to this front lawn where it stands today.

Villa Maria is a private and magnificent waterfront estate with stately gardens and glorious views of Mecox Bay. The residence is offered on approx. 7.6 acres with a dock and 680 feet of bulk headed waterfront (additional acreage is available). The present owners, world-renowned designers, purchased this spectacular property in 2005 and began a 6-year project to restore the home’s original 1920’s grandeur while modernizing it into a splendid 21st century estate. At approx. 22,000 sq.ft., it has 11 bedrooms including a 6-room beautifully appointed master suite, a handmade stone and wrought iron staircase, a 60-foot living room with original fresco details and a state-of-the-art kitchen. All principal rooms are brilliantly sunny and take advantage of the panoramic water views. The outdoor spaces feature a grand 2-story portico and a large stone terrace overlooking the wide lawn and bay. There is a waterside pool, pool cabana, tennis court and a charming two-bedroom guesthouse.
