    A massive Kings Point estate filled with opulent amenities among its three dwellings, including multiple indoor and outdoor pools, replicas of fountains found in a Russian palace and a casino, has been listed for $100 million.

    The centerpiece of the 8-acre property, listed with Diane Polland of Coldwell Banker Previews, is a stone mansion built in 1928. The property also has two guest houses, which combine to provide 60,000 square feet of living space, with 13 en suite bedrooms and 35 bathrooms.


    The mansion features lapis, agate and onyx carved by European craftsmen, as well as a ballroom, a racquetball court, fitness studios, saunas and Turkish baths. The additional homes are set up for entertaining, with a bowling alley, a casino room and a shooting range, said Roni Boyles, a spokeswoman for Coldwell Banker Previews. Outside is a 200-foot dock that stretches into the Long Island Sound, and the property offers views of the Manhattan skyline and the Throgs Neck and Whitestone bridges. A long driveway is paved with laser-cut stone and the fountains on the property were modeled after ones at the Peterhof Grand Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia.

    The property is currently Long Island's most expensive listing.

    "It's incredibly magnificent and I don't think that there's anything even comparable to it, even on the Gold Coast of Long Island," Boyles says.

    The property was once owned by Tamir Sapir, a businessman from the Soviet Union who heavily invested in New York real estate and had an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion, according to published reports. He died in 2014.

    Boyle declined to name the current owners, but said the home is part of a large real estate portfolio. The owners purchased the home for $15.85 million in 2013, according to public records.

    "It's one of those things where they found themselves able to invest in a portfolio full of properties, and this was one of them," Boyle said.

    I were a rich big shot the one thing I'd want in my house would be a Bowling Alley. Just throwing balls when you get home would be insanely satisfying.

    I would seriously be happy with a two or three story story house just as long as it had a Alley somewhere. Anything else feels like overkill.

    And I'm not even much of a Bowler my average is 140, but still Bowling at anytime would be the shit.

    i once set my filter at $100 million and looked at the house for sale throughout the US on zillow.

    every single one of them, while probably having kick ass locations, were horrid. marble floors? why? so your kids can fall and crack their heads open? why don't the rich just have normal but very nice houses? who needs 3 story ceilings?

    My feet hurt every time I think of walking on marble floors every day, in every room.

    I would really enjoy living in a house that seems more museum than home

    though I'd ditch that tennis court for a batting cage

    Even if I had a TON of dough, I wouldn't buy a huge castle like that. It's too much.

    If you can afford a mansion like that you have a chef. The owners wouldn't be caught dead cooking.

    8 Acres isn't much. That's built on pretty much everywhere. No land to enjoy....

    I used to live across the street from this house. The guy who owned it created the "Meow Mix" advertising campaign back in the 70's. I knew his kids in high school. They always had the coolest shit.

    My cousins used to live in King's Park on Long Island but it didn't look anything like that.
