    Description

    This gracious estate boasts unobstructed golf course views, amazing grounds, perennial gardens and 8 car garage spaces with plenty of room for your golf cart and car collection. It's a golf lover's dream, strategically placed on 2.33 acres adjoining the 1st fairway of Knollwood Country Club featuring spectacular views. Oscar Meyer built this gracious 6 bedroom, 7 full and 2 half baths, 7533 square foot, 8 car garage, home in 1967 for his oldest son.

Off the kitchen is a private bedroom, bath and sitting room on the 2nd floor, separate from the 4 bedrooms on the 2nd floor. Original significant architectural features include: marble floors, marble powder room floors and pedestal sink, sconces, 5 fireplaces, bridal staircase and chandeliers. Recent updates: refurbished roof and 2 new air conditioning units. The property is being sold "As Is"
