Billy Joel Just Listed a Grand 26-Acre Long Island Estate for $49M
The ‘Piano Man’ is movin’ out of his spectacular Long Island estate, or at least it seems that way. Just this week, the iconic singer-songwriter also known as ‘Mr. Long Island’ listed his 26-acre property right on Oyster Bay Harbor. Located in the tiny coastal town of Centre Island, it’s close to where the world-famous musician grew up and sits on the market with a whopping $49 million price tag.
A regal New York retreat, the residence offers over 2,000 feet of water frontage, a floating dock for frequent boating, a huge pool, and a helicopter pad. All of this is set behind gates, so one can come and go seamlessly by air, water, or road. If Succession has taught us anything, it’s that the ultra-wealthy who can buy at this price point like to have ample travel options.
As you might imagine, the grand atmosphere continues throughout the interiors. There’s a 20,000-square-foot main house currently under renovation with five bedrooms and ever-present 180-degree views. For hosting large weekend gatherings or staff, a three-bedroom beach house, three-bedroom guest apartment, and four-bedroom gate/guest house with an additional three-bedroom apartment provide immense space for all.
Primed for all kinds of leisure or opportunities for quality time, the estate boasts vast rooms for entertaining as well as special perks like a bowling alley and indoor pool. It would be difficult to be bored here as nearly every hobby from gardening to water sports can be nurtured here.
A major listing for the market just in time for summer, the celebrity home is represented by Bonnie Williamson of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
