A gracious home at Narrows Overlook atop a bluff, commanding an unexcelled panoramic view of New York Harbor, from the Statue of Liberty to the Verrazzano Narrows Bridge, framing the skyline of Manhattan rising spectacularly from the bay. Over one hundred years ago, this home in the Georgian style was built on its present superb site, then part of the Alexandre estate. Immediately to the south was the Von Briessen estate, now deeded to the City of New York for a park. The grounds are spacious, 175 feet frontage on the harbor and just shy of one acre in area. This is a most pleasant home, bright and airy. It is remarkably well oriented to take advantage of its site and every room in the house has a harbor view. Convenient to public transportation, it is especially secluded; in the city butnot. The plaza of the Verrazzano Bridge is only a few blocks away and you can drive to downtown Manhattan in as little as 25 mins, depending on traffic. This is one of the most interesting sites in the world. Every ship that enters or leaves New York Harbor passes your door, often only a few hundred feet away. Entrance is by long driveway from Sea Gate Road, to a drive which encircles a magnificent weeping white linden dating back over two centuries. Steeped in history, this home offers 5 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, formal rooms and endless more memories to be made by its new owners.
