Rich Cribs: 37 acres in Mattituck

For $8.9 million, there's almost nothing you couldn't do with this 37-acre estate in Mattituck, says listing agent Donielle Cardinale of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty: "All the development rights are intact," she says. So, you could apply to open a bed-and-breakfast, plant a vineyard, raise horses, collect cars in the 12-car garage - or indulge a motocross hobby, she says.

"They built a motocross track, probably about 5 acres of the property. It's a fairly rectangular space with big, huge hills and water and all kinds of crazy stuff," Cardinale says.

Public records show the property belongs to Bissett Nursery's James Bissett III, an owner of Atlantis Marine World in Riverhead. - KRISTIN TAVEIRA
