Bois Dores Waterfront Estate, Water Mill
Given its 5.65 +/- acres, the “Bois Dorés” estate is revealed past a winding drive, lush lawns, sunken all-weather tennis court, caretaker cottage, and ends at the front entry of this John Laffey-designed, shingle-style residence. A sense of relaxed elegance informs all aspects of this exquisite home, yet hallmarks of the Laffey design are evident, given the two-story turret room, covered stone patios, interior vaulted barrel ceilings, and attention to handcrafted details. The view from the back patio flows down to the heated Gunite pool, pool house, and gardens, to 350 feet of waterfront on Mill Pond with dock. Opening with a double-plus-height entry hall, the house features a living room, circular sunroom, formal dining room, chef’s kitchen with breakfast area and family room, library, ground floor guest suite, second story master suite with sitting and sun rooms, double dressing closets and baths, six more guest suites, an elevator, and a bonus loft over the 3.5 vehicle garage.
