Speaking of water, they aren’t making any new waterfront property. That’s a big reason many of the unique and charming bayfront homes of Plandome are owned by the same families not for years but for generations, some extending a half century or more without a turn. It’s also a reason the picturesque enclave’s 1,441 residents are about the same number as recorded in the 1960 census. Simply put, Plandome is home to some of the Manhasset area’s largest, most architecturally distinctive and historically significant homes.
Each of the community’s stately domiciles is encircled by lushly landscaped lawns and mature trees, a full nine of those homes directly overlooking Manhasset Bay. Now, those nine bayfront estates are welcoming two new stately homes to the market every bit as remarkable.
Beautiful hand-cut Connecticut stone distinguishes each of the spectacular, smart- and energy-efficient stone-and-shingle transitional Georgian/Hampton-style homes.
They are graced by elegant, English-style Belgium block courtyards with exquisite bluestone steps, architecturally-appointed porticos with Chippendale railings and large round columns and meticulously manicured landscapes featuring diverse foliage to both maximize privacy and deliver year-round color.
