To enjoy an elegant country life….Celebrated for its beauty, this expansive waterfront estate is distinctively refined. Majestically overlooking the pristine waters of Quantuck Bay in Westhampton Beach stands a spectacular residence whose sense of elegance and luxury is so impressive that it is truly one of the grandest ever built on the east end of Long Island. The Shingle Style manor house, on 10.37 acres with 1,000′ of water frontage, was built in 1903 for William C. Atwater, a coal baron. He commissioned the architect Henry Bacon, formerly of McKim, Mead & White and best known for his design for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. The main house comprises c. 16,000 square-feet on three floors, with 24 rooms, 6 fireplaces, nine bedrooms, nine full and two half-baths. Exquisite architectural detail, restored original millwork and generously proportioned rooms afford elegant formal entertainment as well as comfortable relaxation. Superior craftsmanship has been meticulously maintained and adds to the uniquely gracious atmosphere of this historic treasure.
