Sundays in my City

My husband took a ride with a friend to make a delivery here and took a few shots
during one of last week's snow storms as you can see on the car.

Not having grown up here in America, I'm not very family with the wealth that seems to
be a large part of Long Island. If you have followed my food blog you would know that'
my husband's Mom catered for over 20 years in houses like this. She would sometimes do
up to 4 parties in a week.

My husband was very impressed for some reason of the fence that surrounds the property.
(probably of the price in the tune of $10 mil.)

Go thru the gate and past the lake that was built.

This is a very new house...built in the past 2 years. This is the side of the house, with 3 wings, probably
a guest house, servants quarters, and garages.

Here's the main part of the house.

....and a peek in thru the arches from the parking lot.

And that's about all I can share with you.

There are many houses like this, most of which you won't see from the road,
especially in summer with the abundant maples in the area.

Come travel the world with us at Unknown Mamis.

Wow. It is humongous. I don't think I would like a very big house. Do you know why? I would hate cleaning it! : ) I would love those views though. Magnificent for sure!

Looks like Christmas card pictures!

Long Island is the playground for the wealthy. The Hamptons are like some of the most prized real estate in the US!

I have a NY friend who has a fashion blog

Lovely...expensive, lovely.

I really like the second picture....with just a touch of red, it would make a beautiful Christmas card.

Have a great week.

Wow! I've never seen so much snow. Here in Texas we get no snow... and a castle, how romantic.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Wow, that is A LOT of snow! Hope it's cleared up a bit by now.

And that is some house! Who needs all that space!?!?!

Thanks for sharing your city.
