About Chelsea Mansion
Located on the 550-acre Muttontown Preserve, Chelsea is a 40–room mansion listed on the National Register of Historic Places (in 1979). The home was built by Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Moore in 1924 and is an outstanding example of the design ideas prevalent during the latter part of Long Island’s Gold Coast era. A blend of French, English and Chinese influences, the mansion provides a sense of mood, elegance and charm, while achieving well-proportioned, livable interior spaces.
