Elmont, NY (PRWEB) September 23, 2010
At the turn of the 20th Century, wealthy New York City residents were caught up in "Gold Coast Fever". They came to the North Shore of Long Island and built majestic, opulent homes as well as magnificent golf and country clubs. Joseph Sampson Stevens, one such NY visionary, director of Chemical National Bank, world renowned polo player, who rode with Teddy Roosevelt's Roughriders in the 1890's, purchased large parcels of land, which have now become the beautiful grounds to the Stone Hill at Muttontown community.
The prestigious architectural firm, Warren & Wetmore, whose credits include New York's Grand Central Terminal, designed a 10,000 SF Georgian-style mansion named Kirby Hall, where Stevens and his family lived. The mansion still sits atop the highest elevation of this iconic estate overlooking the rolling hills in this new European-influenced community. When completed, Stone Hill will consist of 80 magnificent estate homes sitting among 148 acres of languidly rolling hills, mature trees, and perfectly manicured grounds.
On September 18th, 2010, famed builder and developer, Bernard Janowitz, invited top real estate individuals and firms, to tour the newly completed clubhouse. The 40' x 18', indoor heated pool, surrounded by imported natural stone tiles by Fiorano, were meticulously installed in a French modular pattern that accentuates the 16"x24", 16”x16”, 8”x16” and 8"x8" sizes. "They selected a warm, walnut-toned stone that has been specially chiseled, tumbled and brushed, in a manner that reflects time-worn stone that had been preserved and maintained under special care" said John Tudisco, VP of Sales & Marketing at Fiorano Tile.
The clubhouse features a physical fitness center, card room, outdoor tennis courts and elegant men’s and women’s showers and locker rooms. Being the center of the community, a gathering room and food preparation areas were included to support private parties and events for the residents at Stone Hill. "We wanted the fine residents of this community to have a place where they can relax and enjoy their time here with their neighbors, family and friends, or simply enjoy a quiet work out or swim in an atmosphere that reflects their appreciation of quality and sophistication, as they have come to expect in a community of this nature" said Jo-Ann Miller, director of Sales at Stone Hill.
Bernard Janowitz, hand selected a team of designers and product suppliers that were best suited to deliver a clubhouse of his dreams, and was proud to celebrate its completion at the grand opening event.. "What a night" said Mr. Janowitz, "I am thrilled to be able look at around at a finished product, that has been years in the making." In addition to the wonderful tile by Fiorano, designer Carmella Acerra selected top quality wood trim, chandeliers, elegant sisal rugs, window treatments, furniture and all the amenities for this work of art, the Clubhouse at Stone Hill. "Finally, in addition to the grandeur of each home at Stone Hill, residents can now feel they have a second home they can relax in and enjoy", said Mr. Janowitz.
Also celebrated at the event was the first presentation of Long Island Luxury Magazine's 66 page color issue featuring the Stone Hill at Muttontown project, published by industry expert, Jeff Gross.
