The North Shore of Long Island has long been steeped in Gatsby-esque luxury, so it was fitting when The Ritz-Carlton Residences opened in May 2016 at 4000 Royal Court in North Hills. Phase 1 has nearly sold out, with only four residences remaining, and occupancy for the second phase begins this winter.
In all, there are 244 two- and three-bedroom condominiums, primarily attracting empty nesters as well as Manhattanites and Brooklynites looking for more space — and the strength of the Great Neck South school district.
For those residents commuting to Manhattan, there’s a Cadillac Escalade shuttle to and from the Long Island Rail Road — 30 minutes to Manhattan. For those with a house in the Hamptons, you’re only 60 miles away.
Whether residents are working in New York City or not, all are attracted to the Ritz-Carlton’s lock-and-leave, maintenance-free lifestyle — the big home without the task of maintaining it.
And oh the amenities. The Clubhouse amenities include indoor and outdoor pools, a movie theater, golf simulator, game room, lounge, and reception rooms for entertaining.
There’s also a 24-hour concierge, gated entry, 24-hour loss prevention personnel, doormen and porters, valet parking, housekeeping, dog walking and pet care services, package delivery, dry cleaning and personal trainers.
Kitchens feature stainless steel Sub-Zero refrigerators, Wolf five-burner gas cooktops and ovens, under-counter wine storage and under-cabinet lighting.
Bathrooms have Bain Ultra soaking tubs, Newport brass fixtures, double vanities and separate water closets.
The complex was developed by RXR Realty and sales are being handled by Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. For more information, visit the website.
Prices start at $1.5 million.
