A grand but unusual estate in Sands Point, N.Y., an affluent village on the North Shore of Long Island, has hit the market asking $38 million.

Nearly new, postmodern and eco-friendly, the mansion sits on almost four waterfront acres, according to the New York Times. Completed in June, the 15,000-square-foot estate features a circular drive, a sculpture garden, a golf green and a sandy beach on Long Island Sound.

Its eco-friendly amenities include geothermal heating and cooling, photovoltaic panels, a sedum-covered organic roof, a maintenance-free porcelain and zinc facade and two cisterns that capture and reuse rainwater for irrigation.

Its application for a silver-level LEED certification for sustainability is pending, but if it’s granted, the home would be one of the largest residences with the certification in the nation.

Sonny Chabra, the chairman and chief executive of ASI System Integration, a provider of information technology services, is the seller. The eight-bedroom, nine-bathroom house is being sold furnished.

“It’s a turnkey situation,” said Shawn Elliott of Shawn Elliott Luxury Homes and Estates, the listing broker. [NYT] Christopher Cameron
