Home of the Week – What’s on the Market?

This beautiful estate was featured on the cover my recent Sotheby’s mailing and I have been excited all week in anticipation of sharing it. I truly didn’t realize homes like this still existed (especially here in America!)  Known as Twinight, this estate was built on six acres of water front property in Centre Island, New York.  Its design was based on the Petit Trianon château at the Palace of Versailles.  It features brightly painted interiors with rich architectural ornamentation.  Each room is more breath-taking than the last.

This house is named Twinight because of the natural pink and blue light created by the setting sun when it hits the Portuguese limestone exterior. Picture perfect!
