A newly-built, 9,103-square-foot Mediterranean-style home in the Harriman Estates section of Sands Point has hit the market with a $9 million price tag, Long Island Press reported. The home at 48 Sterling Lane has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, two half bathrooms, three eat-in kitchens, a library, a game room, a wine cellar and several balconies. The 2.34-acre property also has a three-car garage, patio, deck and pool. Kristine Livadas of Douglas Elliman has the listing for the so-called Modern Tuscan home. Sands Point tends to get eight to 10 newly constructed or reconstructed homes per year, according to Newsday. There has reportedly been an increase in young families that have moved into the affluent area within the past five years, which has helped upgrade existing homes to modern standards. Between March 1, 2018, and March 29 of this year, there were 30 home sales in Sands Point with a median price of $1.916 million, according to data from the Multiple Listing Service of Long Island. The priciest home sale for the village in that time was for $5.4 million. Newsday reported last week that the former Sands Point home of late singer Perry Como was once again for sale with a $2.9 million ask. The property at 39 Cornwells Beach Road, which initially hit the market in mid-2017 seeking $3.95 million, is listed with Jill Berman and Rachel Sha of Douglas Elliman. [Long Island Press]
