The Cliffhanger house, a mid-century modern home perched in Port Washington, has hit the market for $1.995 million, Newsday reported. The home was built in 1964 by its original owner, architect John Mascioni. The property at 121 Huntington Road is now owned by Stuart and Jill Gold, who spent nearly 10 years renovating a place that they fell in love with “at first sight,” according to the outlet. The 4,500-square-foot home has five bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, offices, a home theater and a gym. Outside, the property has a stone rock garden and a rear deck. In the winter, a new owner can look out their windows and see the Manhasset Bay. Alexis Siegel and Amy Rosenberg of Douglas Elliman have the listing. Potential buyers, however, could be disappointed to learn that the home has no real tie to “Cliffhanger,” Sylvester Stallone’s cult-classic 1993 action film. “We named it that just because it’s on a hill,” Jill Gold told Newsday. “We’ve named each one of the houses we’ve owned. Our house out in the Hamptons, we call it the ‘Great Escape.’” [Newsday]
