Great Neck, NY 11021









Completed in 1923 and set on a landscaped .47-acre, this well-appointed Colonial residence is surrounded by regal old growth and mature specimen trees with perennial under plantings. Perfect for relaxing and entertaining outdoors, a conveniently located terraced dining patio sits just outside the kitchen with a flagstone patio below. They overlook lovely secluded gardens with manicured hedges and flowering azalea, hydrangea, day lily, iris and peony. A broad drive provides ample parking, and an attached garage has space for two vehicles. RESIDENCE Exuding charm, the gracious five-bedroom Colonial's architecture gives a nod to both Tudor and Cotswold design. Composed of a stucco facade with touches of half-timber work and a welcoming portico, the residence sits high above the street. To the left of the front entry, a Great Neck Historical Society Heritage plaque recognizes the residence as the home of Julius Henry "Groucho" Marx from 1926-1931, at which time he relocated to Hollywood. Added to the residence in 2014, the attractive portico opens to a foyer with comfortable radiant heat and skylights that invite natural light into the interiors. The expansive formal living room boasts a series of oversized casement windows overlooking both the front and side gardens and a fireplace with a carved wood mantle flanked by built-in cabinetry. There is room for several furniture groupings. The elegant formal dining room has lovely architectural details including parquet wood flooring, boxed beams and original moldings. It opens to the bright kitchen with a spacious informal dining area and large windows overlooking the delightful back gardens. A bedroom suite with a full hallway bath sits at the southeast corner of the main level. It has access to both the gardens and the living room. The second level opens to the spacious primary suite with a spa-inspired en suite bath featuring luxurious fixtures and finishes. The bath has an oversized shower, spa tub, two skylights and exquisite marble flooring with radiant heat. Two additional bedrooms share a full hallway bath with radiant heat. On the third level, a bright and restful bedroom has panoramic views of the lush landscaping. A hallway bath has attractive finishes. Perfect for quiet work from home, built-ins run the length of the office with two skylights and a cedar closet for seasonal storage. Central air conditioning provides comfortable living on all three levels during warm summer months. As part of the expansion in 2014, new windows were installed throughout. There is garage access from the lower level where utilities, storage and laundry are located. This beautiful five-bedroom Colonial residence with an expanded floor plan offers gracious living and entertaining in a delightful landscaped setting.
