Sitting on nearly 18 acres on the water, Mill Neck’s Oak Knoll Estate was the site of shoots for Ralph Lauren, “The Godfather: Part III” and “The Sentinel.” Now the William Adams Delano-designed home is on the market for $12.85 million.

he house was originally built for Bertram G. Work who was the CEO and Chairman of Goodrich Tire Company.

“The union was threatening to kill him at the time so every window in the house has pocket solid steel doors that covered them incase they came after him,” listing broker Jason Friedman of Laffey Fine Homes in Great Neck said. “The house was built during prohibition, so in the basement there is a bank vault door that leads to a second vault door, which leads to a lounge/speakeasy room filled with wine, liquor, etc.”

The property features it’s own vineyard, reflecting pool, carriage house, horse barns and 14 fireplaces. –Christopher Cameron
