Long Islanders may take some flack now and then for their accents, but we'd get past it if it meant we could get our paws on this $8.8 million jaw-dropper.

"Gold Coast" luxury at its finest, the palatial mansion commands three acres of prized real estate in Old Brookville, N.Y., a posh bedroom community near Long Island's north shore.


The six-bedroom home boasts a stately brick-and-slate exterior, with window balconies and a double-door entrance tucked behind four soaring marble columns. Carving out its fair share of the more than 11,000 square feet in the home, the foyer has coffered ceilings and an elaborate mural that looms above a double-helix staircase.

Marina Davis of Laffey Fine Homes has the listing.
