Sitting on almost a full acre in Lattingtown is an unusual early 1900s home for sale that was once part of the Piel family estate. In this case, it’s Piel as in Piels Beer.
On the market for $1.25 million, the property was once part of the larger Piel family estate; the home was originally a barn. Listing agent Katie Cuddeback of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty has found public records that indicate the conversion likely took place in 1954.
It is now a four-bedroom, three-bath, two-story home surrounded by Monet-worthy gardens. (A pond on the property is rimmed with irises that suggest the work of the French Impressionist painter.)
There is about 2,400 square feet of living space, but that does not take into account a finished basement that has the original boulder foundation. Enormous timber beams are tied into the rustic decor. Central air-conditioning and a stainless-steel kitchen are among the more contemporary features.
“It’s a great old house, surrounded by beautiful gardens and a tranquil pond,” Cuddeback says. “[The home has] a two-story entry hall, a great kitchen and new baths, and it’s a walking distance to the village, train and schools.”
