A Stanford White-designed mansion in Premium Point, New Rochelle with extensive waterfront footage and spectacular views of Echo Bay, Long Island Sound, Bronx-Whitestone and Throgs Neck Bridges and New York City, is quietly available for purchase in an off-market listing for $23.9 million. Premium Point is a gated compound in Westchester County founded in 1892 with such notable residents as artist Norman Rockwell, media mogul John Kluge, and publishing giant Henry Holt. Constructed in the 1890s, the 28-room 21,306 square foot mansion was recently renovated and boasts 13 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms.
With landscaping by Frederick Law Olmstead, the home known as “All View” has just under three acres of land and boasts a formal circular driveway, two private beaches, a “great lawn” a 30′ by 60′ mosaic glass pool, and a deepwater dock. The superb location is a convenient 35 minutes to New York City by train and five minutes by helicopter.
The home was originally built for Charles Oliver Iselin, a well-known yachtsman and winner of America’s Cup. The exceptional front door, which is made of oak, is four inches thick and weighs 600 pounds. The house features many other unusual architectural details including hand-plastered vaulted ceilings.
The current owners purchased All View in 2013 after a long period of vacancy and recently completed an elaborate large-scale, multi-million dollar three-year-long renovation, which included restoring the mansion to its Beaux Arts glory and advancing it technologically and sustainably into the 21st century by installing new state-the-art systems for electricity, heating, air conditioning and water.
The home was previously owned by African chief and mining tycoon, Antonio Deinde Fernandez, a former ambassador for the Central African Union to the United Nations, according to Westchester Magazine. Fernandez, a Nigerian billionaire and one of the wealthiest men in Africa, died in 2015. Fernandez served as an advisor to the Angolan government on economic matters between 1982 and 1985 and was subsequently appointed as deputy permanent representative of Mozambique in the United Nations, according to Forbes. He served as a special adviser to the president of Mozambique on International Economic Matters between 1992 and 1995.
