Sands Point was settled by Vanderbilts and other shapers of the Gold Coast, but is perhaps better known as “East Egg” in "The Great Gatsby." This circa-1930 colonial on Boulder Beach offers views across the Long Island Sound. It has a wrap-around covered porch, a dining room that seats 30-plus, and 145 feet of shoreline with new dock and boathouse. The gatehouse has 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The décor of the sitting room features a most intriguing combination of ginghams, plaid, and old-timey ships, while the central hall has landscape murals. The manly wood-paneled office is not afraid to pair tartan carpeting with equally plaid armchairs.
