A massive Kings Point estate filled with opulent amenities among its three dwellings, including multiple indoor and outdoor pools, replicas of fountains found in a Russian palace and a casino, has been listed for $100 million.
The centerpiece of the 8-acre property, listed with Diane Polland of Coldwell Banker Previews, is a stone mansion built in 1928. The property also has two guest houses, which combine to provide 60,000 square feet of living space, with 13 en suite bedrooms and 35 bathrooms.
The mansion features lapis, agate and onyx carved by European craftsmen, as well as a ballroom, a racquetball court, fitness studios, saunas and Turkish baths. The additional homes are set up for entertaining, with a bowling alley, a casino room and a shooting range, said Roni Boyles, a spokeswoman for Coldwell Banker Previews. Outside is a 200-foot dock that stretches into the Long Island Sound, and the property offers views of the Manhattan skyline and the Throgs Neck and Whitestone bridges. A long driveway is paved with laser-cut stone and the fountains on the property were modeled after ones at the Peterhof Grand Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia.
