The price of Wildbank, the former Sands Point home of late American composer John Philip Sousa, has dropped by $400,000, down to $9.45 million, said a Douglas Elliman spokeswoman. The 6,000-square-foot waterfront home at 12 Hicks Lane has six bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, a gym, fireplaces, a loggia, an upper balcony and Zuber scenic wallpaper. Both the main house and nearby cottage have their own wine cellars and generators. It also has a deep-water dock on a sandy beach with sunset-facing views. The home, added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1966, came on the market last summer. Sousa, the composer behind “The Stars and Stripes Forever” and many other military marches, reportedly lived in the Sands Point home from 1915 to 1932, the year he died at 77. Maggie Keats of Douglas Elliman has the listing. [Douglas Elliman]
