Meticulously restored to its former 1920s glory, the six-bedroom, seven-bath home has fine millwork details, luxuriously fitted baths, a spacious professional kitchen with Viking appliances, a large kitchen island, a living room with a fireplace and a dining room.
In addition, the master wing has its own fireplace, private office, spa bath, powder room and gym. The residence is on 1.2 private acres, with a heated pool, separate guest cottage and two-car garage.
According to PropertyShark.com, it was the priciest listing in Suffolk County last week. “This elegant home has dueling views over Hook Pond, the grounds of the Maidstone Club, and is a short stroll to the ocean," says listing agent Michael Schultz of The Corcoran Group. The house was in the news last year for falling victim to copper bandits.

SO FASHIONABLE. Famed mannequin maker Ralph Pucci and his wife, Ann, have bought an oceanfront cottage in Amagansett for $5.2 million, according to the Long Island Real Estate Report. The renovated four-bedroom, 3.5-bath, two-floor home went on the market in September 2008 with Myles Reilly of Saunders & Associates, who also sold the property. The home was renovated from top to bottom, inside and out, in 2007.
OLDIE FOR SALE. A classic 1930s Sagaponack farmhouse symbolizing Long Island's rich agricultural history has hit the market for $2.5 million. The Peconic Land Trust, a nonprofit that aims to protect working farms and natural lands, moved the Hedges Farm House from its original location to save the structure. Ronald Lauder, son of cosmetics mogul Estée Lauder, donated the property where the house stands. Since then, the house was moved within the donated land again in 2010 because a neighbor put a restraining order on the property, according to news reports. “It is a classic style, four-square prairie style farmhouse that is very characteristic of the agriculture on Long Island,” says Emma Clurman of Brown Harris Stevens, who is co-listing the property with Peter Turino. The house has facade easements in order to conserve the historic character of the farmhouse. The new owners will have one acre of the 10.7 acres of land to build and expand on. “The house will have to go before the architectural review board and any additions must remain in character of the architectural integrity [of the home], “ Clurman says.
