Description

Located in Bridgehampton North, this 58+ acre compound is the last of its kind, offering extremely rare pre-existing non-conforming subdivision capabilities. Pre-existing zoning allows for a multitude of options ranging from a multi-lot compound to a high yield subdivision. A new development subdivision is supported by surrounding market stability and proven absorption rates of large new construction estates. The property is currently comprised of 8 structures in totality. The 25,000 SF+/- principal dwelling overlooks Long Pond with an oversized pool, pool pavilion, grass tennis court, and immaculate grounds and gardens. Additionally, the estate offers a private 18-hole golf course, wrapped around two completely private ponds masterfully designed by Rees Jones, with a pro-shop/clubhouse and halfway house.

This immaculate private course offers the amenities of the most revered clubs. The par 70 course plays across two of the estate's three ponds, encompassing 6,307 yards, four shared greens, four shared fairways, and three sets of tees - making the course enjoyable for all ages and skill levels. It has earned a 132-slope rating by the Metropolitan Golf Association (MGA), and is currently being operated by a full-time superintendent previously affiliated with Bethpage Black. Located at the fifth hole is a halfway house, originally a milking barn that has since been restored to include a living area, bathroom and refrigerator. The pro shop is an English-style clubhouse on two floors, paneled in Brazilian mahogany. Service buildings dating back to the property's incarnation as a working dairy farm include an original potato barn and vintage metal barn used for storage, also containing a caretaker's office and an apartment.

On the site of the property's original farmhouse is a caretaker's cottage, designed by Allan Greenberg, crafted with triple-sash floor-to-ceiling windows, a graceful columned wraparound porch and a bluestone patio with views of the peaceful gardens. Inside is a living room with built-in bookcases, country-style kitchen/dining room, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 marble baths, and a laundry room.

The 25,000 SF+/- main residence, designed by renowned classical architect Allan Greenberg, features 8 bedrooms, 10 full and 3 half bathrooms, and is perfectly positioned to enjoy views of Long Pond. The meandering driveway, lined with mature landscaping and large trees, follows the rolling terrain of the impeccable golf grounds. Past the front entryway, a mahogany porte-cochere proceeds to a courtyard that's also reachable from a service road. Custom moldings, milled doors, cherry and mahogany floors hand laid with a classic Greek key border, five fireplaces, and Venetian plastered walls optimize the elegance. Indoor/outdoor living and entertaining are made effortless with a thoughtful, flowing floorplan. Encompassing the expansive grounds is a heated gunite pool with spa, pool pavilion, grass tennis court, covered loggia, and an abundance of gardens. To the right of the entrance, 60 solid concrete columns create a walkway supporting wisteria-laced pergolas.

Notable landscape designer Edmund Hollander transformed the former 58+ acre dairy farm into a verdant oasis, enveloped by woodland to create privacy and natural environs. Formal and informal gardens, planned in accordance with those of an estate from the turn of the last century, were professionally designed to weave throughout the property and perfectly harmonize with the house. The jewel of the 14 distinct world-class gardens is the spectacular rose garden - derived from the great rose garden at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden that appears in all its splendor through an extended pergola, blanketed with rose-covered trellises. An abundance of other vibrant, colorful varieties include a white garden, wildflower gardens, butterfly and lily gardens, fruit trees and an orangery.
