The North Shore is known for its elegant homes, and two homes dating back to the early 20th century are for sale in Manhasset.
The summer home of Daily Racing Form founder Frank Brunell at 31 Elm Sea Lane in Plandome Manor is listed for $4.59 million through Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, and a 1920s Colonial home in Plandome with eight bedrooms is listed for $3.49 million by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
Brunell’s former home sits on 1.58 acres within the Manhasset school district and has four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.
Real estate agent Patricia Gahan Moroney said the home boasts an impressive entryway with a dramatic staircase.
The living room and formal dining room both have fire places, and a large sunroom runs along the back of the home. Moroney said the current homeowners have restored the home as well as add a mudroom to the home in keeping with the history of the 1902 home.
The three-story Plandome home at 15 Middle Drive has five fireplaces across the property, including in the master suite and banquet-sized dining room.
Listing agent Shelley Scotto said the large eat-in kitchen is well lit, and the grand entry is covered in mahogany wainscoting. The property also houses a double staircase with the original banisters and an original telephone booth in the entry.
Both homes have detached two-car garages, and new owners would be eligible for beaching and mooring rights.
