It’s free to whistle the disco tune to any Bee Gees track – but when it comes to buying the home of a former group member, it costs much more than just a song.
On Long Island, a seven-bedroom spread that once belonged to Robin Gibb could be yours for $ 12.9 million, the listing broker told The Post.
Gibb, who died in 2012 at the age of 62 after complications from cancer and surgery, owned this home in Lloyd Harbor in the 1980s. The iconic 70’s band also featured Gibb’s brothers Barry and Maurice, the latter being his fraternal twins.
The nearly 7-acre spread, at Mallard Drive 31 in Lloyd Harbor, is called “Kenjockety,” which according to the Long Island Press is a Native American term meaning “far from noise.”
Kenjockety dates back to 1926, when Arthur H. Fleming – a timber operator in the American West – built it for his daughter Marjorie, as a wedding gift. Fleming tapped architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, who designed St. Bart’s Church on Park Avenue in downtown Manhattan.
The renovated property in front of Oyster Bay has seven full baths and three baths. Entry photos show a sweeping staircase, wooden beams on the ceiling, a wood-paneled library, fireplaces, spacious entertainment areas and a private deep-water dock with gazebo.
Other details include underfloor heating in the entrance area, a “Winter Garden” room off the living room facing the gardens and bay, as well as a master suite with a private balcony and a walk-in closet with mahogany cabinets.
The grounds also house a renovated cottage with 1 bedroom and its own fireplace. Also outside: a built-in pool and 500 meters of private beach.
This is not the home’s first time on the market. Zillow shows that it was previously listed for $ 9.95 million in 2016, and then increased in price to $ 12.99 million the following year. It has spent time on and off the market since then.
Bonnie Williamson and Lauryn Koke of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty have this listing.
