The main home is an 8,000-square-feet single-family home. It has six bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms all spread over three or more floors.
The home has large open porches and patios. There is a tennis court, a pool and rolling greens surround the house. There is a boat dock, a separate guest house and open terraces as well.
The listing doesn't show interior photos, but the exteriors look amazing. The manicured landscape and the water features make it a true luxury property.
The listing description reads:

Nash was born into a Jewish family that fled Germany during the time of the Nazis. He grew up in Manhattan, New York, and went on to get his degree from the City College in 1953. He became the president of Oppenheimer & Company after serving the investment banking firm for more than 20 years.
Nash also founded the New York Sun and was the vice chairman of the American Stock Exchange in the late seventies. He died of a long illness in 2008.
Helen Englander, Nash's wife is the sister of Israel Englander - the businessman who recently purchased the French Government's New York City penthouse at 740 Park Avenue, Lenox Hill. Englander said that he will be using the property as a pied-a-Terre for his kids and grandchildren, whenever they visit the Big Apple.
