Prepare to be impressed by this unparalleled 11,000 sqft beachfront estate situated on the Gold Coast of Long Island. Owned by video game pioneer Robert Holmes, co-founder of Acclaim Entertainment, known for the legendary NBA Jam and Mortal Kombat series. Holmes is selling his custom built one-of-a-kind residence at 205 Asharoken Avenue in the Village of Asharoken and venturing to the West Coast. After global travels, researching in countless magazines and daydreaming about the perfect seaside oasis, 20 years ago, Holmes decided to bring his dreams to life by building this magnificent coastal retreat.

Built by renowned architects Shope Reno Wharton and Smiros & Smiros, this timeless estate is approached through a ¼ mile gated private driveway and perfectly situated on 4.2 acres surrounded by mature plantings and specimen trees. The residence is entered through an antique arched doorway surrounded by custom leaded glass windows that leads to the main living areas with 11’-28’ ceilings and expanses of glass that perfectly frame captivating water views.

Impressive state of the art amenities including Savant home automation and attention to detail throughout seamlessly incorporate indoor and outdoor living. Swim in the luxurious 36’ indoor lap pool surrounded by Chinese slate floor, ceiling arches, and spa. End each day in extravagant 1,300sqft master suite with wet/dry sauna, exercise room, balcony, dual marble baths and walk-in closets.  Enjoy your family compound while hosting guests in a  separate and private wing with additional kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, and living area with balcony overlooking the pool and the waters beyond.

“Designed not to be a showcase but a home, and a home that could easily accommodate 100+ people for a reception or a dozen to stay overnight in complete comfort.” - Holmes says.

Immaculate grounds feature sweeping level lawns, boat house with exterior water supply, 53’ outdoor pool, and a fully equipped, lighted DecoTurf tennis court, all hidden behind a stone pillared entry gate. Sit back and relish every sunset from 225' of western facing beachfront and the expansive bluestone terrace overlooking across Northport Bay to the Vanderbilt Museum.

Asharoken has been a long time haven for America’s famous. Henry Morgan, founder of Morgan Stanley, purchased 448 acres back in 1939. The beauty and privacy of it's beaches and bays also inspired authoring of The Little Prince and have been home to Katherine Hepburn, Rube Goldberg, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Jackie Gleason, Fiorello LaGuardia, Harry Chapin, Eugene O’Neill and the Vanderbilts among many other notables.
