This Mansion is a welcome reminder of New York City’s historical past; a time when summer retreats boasted over 440 acres and the finest in architectural style and materials. Built in 1855 for the New York Optician, Benjamin T. Pike Jr., the house was constructed of Maine Bluestone and detailed with cast-iron columns and trim. The property was owned by the Steinway family from 1870 to 1925, and has remained with the current family ever since. Today the Mansion’s 25 rooms sit on a green oasis of approximately one acre. Intricately carved marble mantelpieces, plaster moldings, etched glass walnut pocket doors, and a glimmering chandelier dangling elegantly from a 30 foot sky lit dome all combine to great affect. The main floor’s double Parlor connects to both the Grand Foyer and Formal Dining Room with expansive Kitchen and gorgeous Library. The second floor has 5 Bedrooms, Office, and two full Baths, connected by a stunning shelved Book Gallery. Media Room, Sauna and Jacuzzi.
