Wild Bank

Perched atop the Long Island Sound is an extraordinary 2.6-acre waterfront estate that comes with a rich history. Built in 1907 and having served as the former home of American composer and conductor John Philip Sousa, the home, known as Wild Bank, was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1966. It is still a private residence and is not open to the public. And so begins the story of this beauty that is located at 12 Hicks Lane in Sands Point.

The property has six bedrooms including a master on the first level, five full bathrooms and one half bath, a large kitchen and formal dining room, all beautifully decorated with plenty of natural light.

Outside, the home features a sprawling stone loggia and terrace area, tennis court, deep water dock and sandy beach as well as breathtaking perennial gardens, should you fancy a stroll. An upper balcony also permits for stunning sunset and New York City skyline views. A four-car garage with two bedroom guest cottage is perfect for hosting family and friends. And a stunning wine cellar is the pièce de résistance.

The home is currently listed for $8,995,000 by Douglas Elliman Real Estate. For more information, contact Maggie Keats, licensed associate real estate broker for Douglas Elliman Real Estate at 516-449-7598 or email maggie.keats@elliman.com.
