The newly listed Longview, on the market for $18.5 million, is on the highest point in Water Mill, says listing agent Peter Hallock of The Corcoran Group.
It’s said that on a clear day, you can see 30 miles to Montauk Point and 10 miles to Mecox Bay and the Atlantic beyond, he says.
The 15,000-square-foot, eight-bedroom, 9.5-bath home features a home theater, an artist’s studio, a tennis court and a tower that functions as the home’s observation deck with a ceiling of pine wainscoting. It is here that the sellers -- a family of three generations -- like to play games, give dinner parties and just hang out. The property has a 52-foot pool that is next to a pool pavilion with a fireplace and a glass ceiling. -- Valerie Kellogg
