MANHASSET - A Manhasset mansion built during the roaring '20s is now up for sale.

The nearly 100-year-old Tudor mansion was built by industrialist Nicholas Brady and his wife Genevive. The mansion sits on 30 well-kept acres and has breathtaking views in every direction.

The 87-room mansion was built from 1916-1920 and cost Brady $2.3 million. When it was finally finished, the Bradys named it "Inisfada," which means “Long Island” in Gaelic.

A few years before the Bradys passed away, they donated the house to the Jesuit Order of the Catholic Church. The group has been operating the mansion as a public retreat house for the past 50 years.

Due to operating costs, the Jesuits have decided to leave the historic house by the end of June. The purchase of the mansion will set a buyer back $49 million.
