When the listing calls this waterfront manor "ideal for entertaining on any scale" it isn't kidding around. The 10,000 sq. ft. Lutyens-inspired home on 5.6 acres not only features a paneled billiards room with its own poker table, but boasts a family room with a circular alcove that the broker calls "perfect for backgammon or Scrabble tournaments." We're guessing cribbage is OK too.
Outside, the opportunities for recreation continue with a heated gunite swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, a deep water boat dock and 350' of private beachfront.
And for those with less social dispositions, the home still has an incredible amount to offer: "A fully appointed media room, a paneled reading room, complete gym, an epicurean's dream kitchen and formal dining room. There are seven fireplaces, an elevator, Creston music system, five bedrooms, and eight baths."
