These on-the-market estates on Long Island's North Shore boast impeccable details and breathtaking views.
Swan Landing’s formal dining room features a crystal chandelier, custom molding and French doors that lead to a stone patio overlooking the water.
A custom build by award-winning architecture firm Shope Reno Wharton, Swan Landing is the epitome of luxury living—seamlessly blending traditional notes from the late 1800s with modern elements. The approximately 23,000-square-foot stone and shingle estate, with verdant grounds designed by renowned landscape architect Peter Cummin, boasts 13 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms and ample space for a family who loves to entertain on a lavish scale. A stunning barreled-ceiling entrance complete with detailed millwork and handsome wainscoting leads into his-and-hers library wings, both of which contain antique fireplaces.
Beyond the great stair hall—the centerpiece of the home—lies the elegant formal living area, where a panoramic view of Manhasset Bay greets you from a curved wall of windows. The sweeping views continue in the primary bedroom, which has 12-foot ceilings, a private sitting room, custom walk-in closets and his-and-hers en suite bathrooms.
The commanding great stair hall.
Elsewhere throughout the house, find a chef’s kitchen outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances; an octagonal breakfast room lined with a large stained-glass window and five sets of French doors for the ultimate indoor-outdoor space; a temperature-controlled working wine room and wine cellar; a gaming lounge; and a 40-foot indoor pool. The only rival to the beauty of the property’s interior is its exterior, where a romantic lily pond and English garden mingle with a waterfront Har-Tru tennis court, outdoor pool and flat beach with imported sand from the East End.
With an outdoor pool and lush, textured grounds, the property is a dream for entertaining.
Despite the sheer magnitude of Swan Landing, it still manages to feel cozy and livable—making this estate truly one of a kind. $45 million, 227 Dock Lane, Kings Point, Jason Friedman, The Friedman Team at Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, 516.236.6226, thefriedmanteam.com

The home has the feel of a French country estate.
This Normandy-inspired French Tudor in affluent Kings Point village makes a grand first impression with its stylish circle stone driveway, stucco facade and lush landscaping that creates a natural oasis. Situated on more than 7 acres of land, the home features an all-season organic English garden, decorative box hedging, exotic florals and multiple species of fruits and vegetables, plus an irrigation system that ensures the vibrant grounds remain pristine.
A striking circular foyer welcomes guests to Château North.
Inside the threestory estate, a circular foyer adorned with an iron chandelier and curved glass windows opens onto the main floor, which comprises a step-down formal living room, sunroom, dining room, study, lounge, and kitchen with Wolf 60-inch gas range and en suite breakfast room. The eight-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom residence also offers a large bonus playroom as well as a separate primary wing with full bath, walk-in closet, custom shelving and fireplace
A large stone gazebo at the edge of the peninsula is the perfect place to soak in views of the marsh and Long Island Sound.
Adjacent to the two-car garage, a two-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom guesthouse draped in cedar vineyard canopies makes for a charming visitors retreat, and additional outdoor amenities—from a gazebo providing endless views of the marsh and Long Island Sound to a greenhouse, private beach and inground pool steps from the water—illustrate why this abode is every bit the European masterpiece. $25 million, 229 Dock Lane, Kings Point, Jason Friedman, The Friedman Team at Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, 516.236.6226, thefriedmanteam.com
