Gatsby-inspired Long Island mansion hits the market for $55m


A breathtaking Long Island estate in the spirit of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby has just gone on the market for $55 million. 

The home, known formally as The Three Bridges, was built in 1928 and is one of the last remaining generational properties on Long Island’s Gold Coast, according to Zillow.

The Three Bridges sits on more than eight acres of property in the King’s Point section of Great Neck, with beautiful views of the New York City skyline – including the Throgs Neck, Whitestone and RFK bridges for which it gets its name.

This one-of-a-kind property is similar in vein to that of another iconic historical home – the Hearst Estate in Beverly Hills, California – which currently on the market for $69.95 million. The lavish 3.5-acre property was once home to newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst and actress Marion Davies. 

Built in 1926, the estate was designed by Gordon Kaufmann, the English-born American architect behind the Hoover Dam.

The pink stucco mansion is an American treasure and even housed the Kennedy’s during their honeymoon.

The main house features eight bedrooms and 15 bathrooms, and it has endless opulent living spaces including a formal living room set under a soaring 22-feet tall arched hand-painted ceiling.

The home has a two-story wood-paneled library, as well as a billiards room that features a fireplace reminiscent of Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California.

Recognized as one of Los Angeles’ legendary homes, it was the set to Francis Coppola’s 1972 hit ‘The Godfather’ – and featured in one of the more famous scenes in cinema history in which a Don Corleone puts a severed horse’s head in the bed of one of his enemies.

More recently, Beyoncé filmed her opulent music video for her 2019 song ‘Mood 4 Eva’ in the estate, where she used the Olympic size pool in a dream sequence with synchronized swimmers.
