About This Property

About 51 Halsey Lane

Villa Maria, one of Long Island's most beautiful estates, is a 15+ acre retreat of solitude and beauty with breathtaking views of Mecox Bay. The residence is offered with approx. 1,200-foot bulkhead waterfront with dock.

In 1919, shipping magnate Edward P. Morse commissioned Brooklyn architect Frank Freeman to transform the existing cottage into this beautiful Villa by the sea. In 2005 the present owners, world renowned designers, purchased this spectacular property and began a 6-year project to recapture its 1920's grandeur while completely modernizing it into a splendid 21st Century estate home. Consisting of approx. 22,000 sq.ft. and four levels, the highlights include a handmade three-story wrought iron staircase accessing a large reception hall, a 60-foot living room and formal dining room, both with original fresco details, 11 bedrooms including a 6-room beautifully appointed master suite, a serene and light filled atrium with the original tile floor and a brilliant state of the art kitchen.

The internationally renowned architectural firm of Andre Tchelistcheff hired only the most talented craftsman to complete the thorough restoration and renovation of this landmarked home. Care was taken to insure all principal rooms take advantage of the panoramic views and abundant light that filters through the waterside French doors and windows. The outdoor spaces feature a grand double height portico with enormous stone columns, a large limestone terrace with magnificent views of the bay. The stately grounds and gardens have been restored and further enhanced by Edmund D. Hollander, offering year round beauty and privacy. There is a pool with panoramic water views, a pool cabana, a tennis court, and a comfortable and chic 2-bedroom guest house.

About the area

The Gold Coast of Long Island is a 20-mile or so strip along the water’s edge of the North Shore. A century ago, it was a popular summer retreat for the likes of the Vanderbilts, Woolworths and Guggenheims. F. Scott Fitzgerald was awed by the concentration of wealth he found here when he began his masterpiece, “The Great Gatsby.” At one point, Gilded Age estates stood by the hundreds. Over time, most fell victim to the wrecking ball.
