We are delighted to present this beautiful private estate in the hamlet of Quiogue within Southampton. This property has been affectionately named ‘Camp Jerome’ and was originally built for use as a farm back in 1902. It has been over 50 years since this home was last put up for sale, which makes this an extremely rare opportunity.
The estate consists of the main house plus two separate guest houses, a barn house, swimming pool, tennis court and private dock all spread over an impressive 16 acres and boasting a total of 17 bedrooms. The main house features a wonderful country-style aesthetic drawing on its farmhouse roots, with a dark stone exterior facade contrasted by pale sloping roofs and red brick chimneys. There is a plentiful use of wood panelling on the walls, ceilings and cabinets alongside warm rust-coloured stone tiles in the flooring to take you on a trip back through time. The key features of the house are a large drawing room, a gorgeous formal dining room and an eat-in kitchen. Each of the bedrooms is incredibly spacious, with large windows designed so you can wake up to the most gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside and the bay.
Only a short way off the driveway you will find two lovely guesthouses, each comprising three bedrooms and a similarly elegant rustic design. The 50-foot pool and pool house are located a short walk from the front door of the main house, as is a beautiful tennis court. A cobbled pathway leads you through the expansive front lawn to the dock, which occupies only a small portion of the 500-foot waterfront of the property.
Take a stroll through the pine forest and green paths behind the house and you will find yourself approaching a beautiful barn, standing two and a half storeys high and made of galvanized steel. Spread over a total area of 7,500 sq ft, the barn is currently being used as an art gallery to house the private art collection of the current owners. This space can easily be repurposed into a large private gym, sports, hall, warehouse for car collectors, or even another guest house if so desired.
This magnificent property is only a short drive away from Westhampton Beach and Francis S. Gabreski Airport and is a 1.5-house drive from the New York mainland.
An opportunity to own a historic private estate such as this in one of New York’s most exclusive residential enclaves comes along very rarely and is one that we would highly recommend to our most discerning clients.
