Time for a little holiday getaway. This four-bedroom, four-bath vacation home located in the Sea Gate area of Coney Island has some unusual and whimsical touches. It also happens to be owned by Emmanuel Garofalo, who The New York Daily News called a “known Gambino crime family mobster.”
There are a few chandeliers strewn about, but overall the feeling is cheerful, casual and bright, as one might expect of a seaside lair. There is an iridescent blue and black bath whose coloring recalls fish scales or mermaids. The tile in the master bath appears to be printed with faces from famous Italian art.
There is a parquet floor in the media room, and the entry hall has a leaded glass door and transoms and what appears to be a slate floor. The cabinetry’s pneumatic legs make the black and silver kitchen look as if it’s about to achieve liftoff.
Do you find it appealing for $1,198,000?
