For environmentally conscious buyers who aren’t keen on “tiny homes,” a 15,000-square-foot mansion is for sale in Sands Point.

The house at 88 Old House Lane, which backs up to Long Island Sound, is on the market for $24 million.  It has 21 rooms, including eight bedrooms, a 50-foot indoor pool, billiards room and a helipad, and offers eco-friendly technology. 

It has been on the market for six months after an auction of the property was never followed through. 

Sabreen Qaiyum of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage said the home has received offers and described potential buyers as people who are considered “power players.” 

“This includes individuals whose decisions when buying a home are highly influenced when they understand that the property they are acquiring is unique and one of a kind,” she said. “88 Old House Lane is for a buyer who understands that their purchase of the property is worth more and will certainly stand out among their social circle.” 

The mansion is silver-level certified by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, an international green certification program, which Qaiyum said makes it one of the largest home in the nation with that certification. 

It has also been named “Sustainable House of the Year” by the American Institute of Architects and HOUZZ, an online architecture and design forum, awarded the home “Best of Design,” and the home received the “Ceramics of Italy” honorable mention award. 

To reduce its carbon footprint, the mansion is equipped with technology that includes a closed-loop geothermal heating and cooling system, rainwater harvesting, closed cell foam insulation, sedum-covered organic roof and photovoltaic solar panels. 

IPads adorn the walls throughout the mansion which control the home’s LED lights, thermostat, shades and the homewide audio system. 

The billiards room includes a wet bar and wine cellar and a rooftop tee box allows for 90-yard drives to a golf green in the backyard. The indoor pool is equipped with its own spa. 

The home was built by the homeowner for his family in 2014 and was designed by Stuart Narofsky with interiors by Jennifer Rusch and furnishing mainly from Roche Bobois. Sculptures and pieces of art from around the world are included with the purchase of the home.
