The 2nd floor family room is a wonderful place to read, relax &enjoy the view and sure to be a favorite location. Set back from coveted Middle Beach Rd, the professionally landscaped yard with specimen trees & plants provide a special privacy to this mint condition, exceptional home. This unique getaway was built for entertaining & gatherings of all types. Early owner Grover Whalen (“Toastmaster of NYC") hosted many luminaries of the day here including Mayor Fiorello Laguardia.
