No one who answered this question mentioned that although it was originally listed for $12.7MM in 2007, the house sold in 2010 for just under $5.2MM.
It is a spectacular house on Lighthouse Road in Sands Point with nighttime views called "diamond bracelet views" of the twinkling lights on the Triborough and Verrazano bridges. The house sits on beautifully landscaped property and wraps around an interior courtyard with a pool and is just steps from a private beachfront.
Taxes are comprised of Nassau County general taxes, Port Washington school and library taxes and Village of Sands Point taxes. The Village provides essential services from a private water department to road maintenance to 3x/week trash collection and a top-knotch private police department. Membership to the VIllage Club of Sands Point, a former Guggenheim mansion on 23+ acres with golf, tennis, pool, dining and waterfront, is also available to residents.
