Iconic Carousel Estate Sells For A Whopping $25,000,000

The iconic Carousel Estate — which was listed for $25,000,000 — is officially on record. Built in 1929, the estate has been the venue of choice for lavish affairs and exclusive family gatherings for decades. As of December 14th, the estate will change hands for the first time in 35 years.

For almost a century, the Carousel Estate has played host to the area’s most influential figures. A state-of-the-art pier, designed to hold and shelter up to seven fifty-foot yachts, was always a hive of activity, even during the sobering Great Depression. Lazy summer days were spent on the property’s private beach and legendary events filled the night air with music and laughter.

Lively soirees aside, the Carousel Estate remains a treasured family lodge to its handful of past owners. The main home features three distinct living spaces connected by a myriad of breezeways. The original 1920s craftsmanship infuses the house with bygone glamour that would make Gatsby blush. Massive stone hearths serve as gathering points throughout the house and bring a sense of intimacy to this grand property. Separate detached caretaker’s quarters offer additional privacy for guests of the estate. All of this grandeur culminates in fourteen bedrooms and eleven and a half bathrooms.

With an expansive three-and-a-half-acre footprint, Carousel is a natural playground for those lucky enough to get past the gate.  A private marina, for example, is just one of the ritzy lakeside amenities scattered throughout the estate. Two-hundred feet of crystal blue waterfront is the centerpiece of the property and luxurious outdoor living makes the most of the breath-taking grounds.
