A 30-acre North Shore property that once served as the home of the now-demolished St. Ignatius Retreat, which was donated to a Jesuit group in 1937 by the family of late industrialist Nicholas Brady, is now on sale for $110 million as a potential development site, Newsday reported. The New York Province of the Society of Jesus, an order of Jesuit priests, sold the land at 251 Searingtown Road in Manhasset for $36.5 million in late 2013 to the Manhasset Bay Group. The developer subsequently tore down an 87-room, Tudor Elizabethan-style mansion on the site known as Inisfada, a Gaelic world for “Long Island,” which had served as seminary and retreat house for the Jesuits. Newsday noted that the property can currently hold up to 46 single-family residences, citing an online listing from Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, which is handling the sale. “The property is a unicorn… the last of its kind,” Daniel Gale Sotheby’s broker Jason Friedman told the outlet. “It’s a prime site, in one of [Long] Island’s premier neighborhoods.” [Newsday]
