ShareThis

WESTHAMPTON WONDER

Quite simply one of the grandest estates on the East End, this shingle-style manor house overlooks Quantuck Bay at Westhampton Beach. Lording it over ten acres and a thousand feet of waterfront, the manse was built in 1903 for coal baron William C. Atwater by the eminent architect Henry Bacon who was best known for designing the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. The three-story main house flows across 16,000 square feet, has 24 rooms, six fireplaces, 9BRs, and nine full and two half-baths. A graceful entry leads to a sweeping, three-story staircase, the formal dining room is banquet-sized, and broad water views extend from nearly every room. The original poolside carriage house is covered by century-old grape vines. An allee of century-old catalpa trees lines the driveway, and the impeccable grounds contain a Lord & Burnham greenhouse, tennis court, and gunite pool. $39 million.

STANDING TALL IN SAG HARBOR

No detail was spared in the magnificent renovation of Hope House, a dramatic three-story Victorian village residence only a half-minute stroll to the heart of Sag Harbor. “It was a labor of love by the owners,” says Corcoran’s Cee Scott Brown. Marble floors, antique French and Italian tiles, exquisite woodwork, and topnotch hardware and appliances all went into the painstaking re-do, which included replacing the slate mansard roof and customizing a wrought iron, three-story banister. The 2BRs could easily be converted into 4BRs to go with the 3½BAs; a third floor media room with vast skylight and adjoining terrace overlooks the village rooftops. Completing the picture is a lovely bricked garden with water feature, providing a tranquil retreat so close to the singular café life and village buzz of Sag Harbor. $4.995 million.

LOOK NO FURTHER

Sweetly nestled in the East Hampton dunes, this shingled 6BR beauty is a retreat of world-class elegance, just off the village’s finest address, Further Lane. Raves Ray Smith, Prudential Elliman’s senior managing director of sales: “First, it’s got all the bells and whistles—a free-form pool and pool house, Har-Tru tennis court, a beachside cabana which you can’t get any more, and a large ‘party house,’ for lavish entertaining which can also be an artist’s studio. With that, it’s the only property in the $20-million-range in East Hampton today.” Built along classic Hampton’s lines in 1985, the house commands almost three oceanfront acres, with five full bathrooms, one half-bath, and a garage. All in all, says Smith, “The best oceanfront package on the market.” $24.5 million.

VILLA VICTORIOUS

Life on the East End doesn’t get any better than this Mediterranean-style villa in Southampton’s prestigious Fordune Estate. Says agent Beate Moore: “As a package, it’s spectacular. The property has everything—ocean access, Mecox Bay water views, pool and tennis.” The sunny, spacious 5BR house features a great room with 19-foot ceilings, 10-seat screening room, Euro Concepts kitchen, lavish master suite, and four guest suites. Through it all flows a beautiful aesthetic, ideal for relaxed and sophisticated entertaining. Fordune Estate, a property once owned by Henry Ford II, is a gated collection of high-end homes with a private beach. With its prime setting at the end of the estate drive, the villa has sweeping views of both the ocean and bay. The nearly three acres are meticulously landscaped, sporting a smartly integrated Olympic-sized pool and tennis court. $12 million.
