2 Pheasant Run - Old Westbury, New York
OLD WESTBURY. Sequestered on 2 magnificent acres surrounded by mature evergreens and trees, this sprawling contemporary ranch with a 2-story addition has been masterfully designed with walls of glass and glass doors to flood its approximately 6,600-square-foot interior with breathtaking vistas. Its high, sky-lit ceilings and minimalist design, with sleek built-ins and neutral palette, provide a perfect backdrop for displaying an art collection and for viewing the natural surroundings. Ideally located in the heart of Old Westbury, close to golf courses, 3 universities, premier shopping and only a half-hour commute to Manhattan, the property, backing up to a greenbelt with pond, feels like it is in a world of its own. Two electronic-gated, tree-lined driveways access a service courtyard and attached 3-car garage plus a large guest parking area and a spacious brick courtyard leading to the front entry. The home’s floor plan is a “U” shape enfolding an outdoor entertainment complex with inground Gunite pool and an expansive wraparound cedar deck accessed from most major rooms. From the charming, shady courtyard, guests are welcomed into a windowed and sky-lit foyer with a guest closets and a powder room.

In the opposite wing of the house, a serene and spacious master suite bedroom overlooks the pool through tall windows and atrium doors opening to the deck.
