Stately Long Island Gold Coast Mansion Skips Brokerbabble

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Glen Head, N.Y.
Price: $3,599,000
The Skinny: On Long Island's Gold Coast, this historic mansion is apparently impressive enough to do without the usual brokerbabble treatment. Instead, the description reads simply: "Lots of new renovations, roof, border trees, restored drive, grand scale entertaining rooms. All information should be verified." Built in 1918, the seven-bedroom, nine-bath estate retains much of its original grandeur, save for the kitchen, which appears to have been done over in the early 1990s and is currently showing its age. The sparsely furnished interiors feature marble fireplaces, intricate plasterwork, a stunning staircase, and plenty of "grand scale entertaining rooms." Unfortunately, the list price isn't as modest as the description. The house and grounds are currently listed for $3.6M.
