A historic home with very funky interiors and 33 acres along a Long Island shore has hit the market. Designed by architect Edward Durell Stone, the property is asking $13.8 million.

Stone is best known for his work on landmark buildings like Radio City Music Hall, the lobby and ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria, the Kennedy Center in D.C., the Museum of Modern Art and the General Motors Building. But this modernist home in Lloyd Harbor may be one of his most interesting residential commissions.

The property itself has 700 feet of beach frontage and is divided in to four lots. It was originally part of the Gilbert Colgate Estate (as in Colgate-Palmolive).

The main house sits on an 11-acre lot and features four bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms. But it’s the mansion’s living room that is the real showstopper. It has arches, palms trees, funky-to-the-max mid-century furniture, two story windows and an indoor pool – that’s right, a pool in the living room.

Jason Friedman and Rudi Friedman of The Friedman Team at Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage have the listing.
