Called the Jessup Homestead, the original portion of this Quogue house was built in the early 1700s by one of the area’s founding families. Now on the market for $3.35 million, it anchors a 2.5-acre development with four newly constructed homes in a community called Quogue Mews.
During a recent renovation, the look of the historic home’s facade was preserved, while the interior was gutted and modernized, says listing agent Marcia Altman of Brown Harris Stevens, whose husband, Barry Altman, is the developer behind the Quogue Mews project.
“This is a home for someone who wants the vintage look, but doesn’t want to do all the work,” Marcia Altman says. “It has everything you would look for in a modern home.”
The four-bedroom, 4 1⁄2-bathroom house has an eat-in kitchen and breakfast nook, with fireplaces in the living room, formal dining room and master suite, which also has a bathroom with a steam shower and a Jacuzzi. Outside is a fourth fireplace, plus a gunite pool and spa. There is also a home automation system.
One of the new homes will be coming on the market soon, Marcia Altman says.
