Set amid 90 acres of a working farm is this East Quogue ranch listed for $699,000.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is situated on a two-acre parcel that has farmland at both the front and back of the house.
“To look at the open farm, it is a beautiful thing,” says homeowner Joseph Musso. He adds that the property is ideal for “anybody that has that dream to grow some vegetables.”
The farm grows produce from May to the end of October, including berries, potatoes, cauliflower, corn and tomatoes, says the home’s listing agent, Karen McNamara of Town & Country Real Estate.
The development rights to 86 acres of the farmland were recently sold to the Southampton Town Community Preservation Fund, McNamara says.
“The acres which surround the house will remain farmland forever, in perpetuity,” McNamara says. “So the views from all of the windows will always be farmland.”
The home, built in 1951, underwent a renovation that opened the floor plan and created a great room that includes the living room, kitchen and dining area. The granite kitchen boasts new appliances, including a Wolf stove. Sliding glass doors off the dining area open to a back patio that overlooks the property.
