Sound from every room & space for all with 7 bedrooms & 5 full & 2 partial baths.

The 2nd floor family room is a wonderful place to read, relax &enjoy the view and sure to be a favorite location. Set back from coveted Middle Beach Rd, the professionally landscaped yard with specimen trees & plants provide a special privacy to this mint condition, exceptional home. This unique getaway was built for entertaining & gatherings of all types. Early owner Grover Whalen ("Toastmaster of NYC") hosted many luminaries of the day here including Mayor Fiorello Laguardia. Imagine the plans they made sitting on the screened porch watching the sun set over Long Island.These two men meant more to that period of city life than most any others of their era.
