The Property: Centre Island | Oyster Bay Point Lot Estate
Located within one hour of Manhattan, this unique, +4-acre point lot estate offers striking views of the Long Island Sound and Cold Spring Harbor that simply cannot be replicated anywhere else on Centre Island. The estate’s grounds form an idyllic natural landscape, with commanding, open views, rolling green acres and trees, and two small ponds flanking the residence. The Property is located north of 25A, the main east-west state highway.
The contemporary, 11,000-square-foot estate consists of a main residence and attached guesthouse, which combine for a total of 9 beds, 8 full and 1 half baths. The estate was carefully designed to provide sublime views from every vantage. Large, picture windows in nearly every room offer lovely water vistas, while a series of terraces and patios allow for outside enjoyment of the picturesque surroundings.
Unique features include a push-button system that washes salt water from the estate’s exterior, and a geothermal heating and cooling system that uses ground water to maintain temperature balance. There is also a 3-story elevator and back-up generator system. The perimeter of the Property is reinforced with a steel bulkhead.
While the careful design and durable core construction of the Property may make a renovation project more ideal, the estate could also be cleared from the site entirely for the development of a brand new, illustrious point lot estate with a location and views that cannot be reproduced.

The Location: The Village of Centre Island | Oyster Bay & the Gold Coast of New York
Located in the town of Oyster Bay within the Gold Coast of Long Island, Centre Island is perhaps the most exclusive suburban New York neighborhood west of the Hamptons. This prominent community is surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches and is accessible by only one, police-guarded road to ensure the privacy and safety of the community. The 605-acre peninsula has over four miles of coastline bordered by Cold Spring Harbor, Oyster Bay Harbor, and the Long Island Sound, and is quickly becoming known as the sailing mecca of the North Atlantic.
Long Island’s Gold Coast, which stretches across its North Shore, has played a prominent role in the area’s rich history, and was once home to some of the wealthiest families in America. The area was coined the “Gold Coast” due to its dense concentration of distinguished, well-heeled residents. At the end of the last century, the area became the most fashionable escape for America’s wealthiest citizens. The Vanderbilts, Astors, Pratts, Morgans, and the upper echelon of New York society all lavished huge sums on building castle-like estates and gardens there, many of which can still be seen today. The Gold Coast also serves as the famous backdrop for F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, which centered on the area’s wealth and long-held reputation of elegance.
Centre Island boasts a number of its own notable residents, both past and present. The list includes musician Billy Joel, Academy and Tony Award-winning lyricist Alan Jay Lerner, media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, and political commentator Sean Hannity.
