For sale, a circa 1892 farmhouse in Southold, known to locals as the Great Hog Neck Farm, which can trace its ownership back to two prominent families. According to the Southold Historical Society, the house was owned by the Terry family until members made a trade with the Hallock family for some land.
It was the childhood home of Joseph N. Hallock, owner and editor of the Island Traveler Newspaper and father of Ann Hallock Currie-Bell, the society’s founder. The house is listed for $589,000.
Current owners Rita and Curtis Winkler purchased the two-story frame house six years ago. They updated the eat-in kitchen, adding a 15-foot vaulted ceiling, and the windows of the enclosed porch making it easier for year-round use. Wolf Preserve borders the 2-acre property, and the sellers have spotted a variety of wildlife including deer and fox, while hiking the marked trails.
Other features include three bedrooms, two baths, a formal dining room, den with wood-burning stove and a barn.
The listing agents are Nicholas Planamento and Joan Bischoff Van Heemskerck of Town & Country Real Estate.
