$18M Long Island Retreat Designed by Richard Meier Available for First Time

A 3-acre waterfront compound on Long Island, NY, designed by the celebrated architect Richard Meier, is on sale for the first time, for $18 million.

Meier designed the Maidman House in Sands Point, NY, in 1971 for the Maidman family, a well-known New York real estate dynasty.

The building, originally a retreat for Catholic nuns, was purchased by the Maidmans from the Brooklyn archdiocese, explains the listing agent, Bonnie Doran.

William Maidman founded Townhouse Management Company. His son, Richard Maidman, was the company’s second-generation leader. He spent a lot of time at this home before passing away in 2017. A Maidman family trust named Steamboat Landing is the current owner.

Meier is best-known for his iconic, large-scale designs, including the Getty Center in Los Angeles. White is often the dominant color in his works, and this home
