A stunning mansion on 15 acres overlooking the Long Island Sound is on the market for $14.6 million. Located at 2 Wallis Lane in the North Shore village of Nissequogue, the estate, known as Somerset, boasts a seven-bedroom main brick manor residence and nearly 900 feet of water frontage. The 1930s era home has preserved lots of its charm, from its curvy staircase to the intricate moldings.

According to the listing, the waterfront estate’s design was inspired by the ornate Governor’s Palace in Williamsburg, Virginia. Since the home’s construction in 1935, a number of notable residents have lived there, including the Lauder Greenway family, as Mansion Global reported.

George Lauder started a steel company in the late 19th century with his cousin, Andrew Carnegie, that later became U.S. Steel. The family also built the 50-acre Greenwich estate Copper Beech Farms, which sold for $120 million in 2014 after it was originally listed for $190 million.

The main home of the Somerset estate measures 9,000 square feet and contains seven bedrooms and five and a half baths. The property also boasts a wine cellar, pool, pool house, and a garden.

Just 50 miles east of Manhattan, Nissequogue offers the best of the woods and the waterfront, with both nature preserves and beaches. The home at 2 Wallis Lane sits next to the 125-acre David Weld Sanctuary while also enjoying unobstructed access to the Smithtown Bay and the Long Island Sound.
