This potent property ushers in a new age of the man-house, or, as we like to call it, the "mansion."
Everything about the $15.95 million lair is charged with white-gloved testosterone. There's a heated garage and porte-cochere to store your collection of muscle cars. There's a game room, gym, pool and tennis court. And there's a wine cellar with ample space for every single one of your 5,000 bottles.
The tennis court is "all weather," according to the Corcoran listing, but that doesn't mean it's indoors. At Captains Neck Lane, you're expected to play tennis outside, among Japanese maples and copper beeches, in rain, snow, sleet and/or hail. In such a powerful setting, even the "octagonal breakfast nook" manages to seem dignified.
"MAJESTY REIGNS ON CAPTAINS NECK LANE," says the listing. "Good pedigree always shows." Is that a challenge? You bet! Only the bluest-blooded men need apply. Then again, if you have $15.95 million, that could work, too. —William Alden
