Bee Gees founding member Robin Gibb’s onetime residence in New York is available for sale. The distinguished house comes to the open market with an asking price of $12.9 million. Gibb owned the property on Long Island’s Gold Coast in the 1970s, ultimately selling it in 1983, according to public records.
The estate has been titled Kenjockety. It is anchored by a manor house built in the mid-1920s; surrounding the mansion are grounds that measure nearly seven acres. The property begins with a set of iron gates between brick pilasters, with a brick drive extending through a porte-cochere to a circular motor court with a landscaped centerpiece.
The house, too, is brick, with half-timbers and leaded glass windows giving its exterior an additional dash of dignity. Inside the roughly 16,000 sq. ft. house there are seven bedrooms and at least eight baths.
The home begins with a black-and-white tile foyer, which also features hardwood molding, a coffered ceiling, and a dentil cornice. Fireplaces, arched French doors, inlaid hardwood floors, exposed beams, and hardwood wall niches are other details of this renovated—and magnificent—house on Lloyd Neck.
Brick landscape walls and a one-bedroom guest cottage augment the semi-forested grounds. Newer features include a newly-rebuilt seawall and geothermal HVAC.
Gibb passed away in 2012. The Bee Gees’ record sales exceed 200 million, making them one of the most successful bands of all time.
