Built during the 1920s, this exquisite mansion is nestled in the North Shore of Long Island enclave of Glen Cove and sits on nine waterfront acres. It’s a seven-bedroom brick chateau with six full bathrooms and two half baths that was built by Lewis Luckenbach, an heir of Luckenbach Steamship Company, Inc. Known as Cobble Court, the manor, built in 1928, has a private beach that looks out onto the Long Island Sound, two large guest cottages, a greenhouse and a garden house.

Sotheby’s International Realty has listed the mansion for $16 million. Bragging rights: some of the wealthiest industrialists in America have owned mansions in the area including J.P Morgan, the Vanderbilts, Hearsts, Astors and Guggenheims.
