Historic Long Island House To Hit The Market Next Week

A Long Island house, originally designed for financier and philanthropist Percy Rivington Pyne II in the 1930s, is coming to the market early next week, with an asking price of $5.85 million, listing agent Jason Friedman of the Friedman Team at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage told Mansion Global exclusively.

The 15,390-square-foot Georgian Revival house sits on approximately four acres of land with gardens, a parcel of the 90-acre farmland Mr. Pyne bought in 1926 in Roslyn Harbor, Long Island. The rest of his property was subdivided for suburban development in 1945, according to Mr. Friedman.

Mr. Pyne’s grandfather was Moses Taylor, director and president of City Bank of New York, which later became Citibank, and had a controlling interest in Consolidated Gas Co., now known as ConEd. His mother was a direct descendant of Richard Stockton, signer of the Declaration of Independence.
