It’s all about the water and big sky in this big house on Quogo Neck Lane in Quogue Village, near Quantuck Bay. With seven bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms, this 6,000-square-foot traditional house is ready for an owner who likes to host large gatherings for family and friends.
“The first floor is all about entertaining,” says Steven Rosmarin, the Douglas Elliman agent who represents the listing. On the first level, a generous grand foyer with a 22.9 foot ceiling height is flanked by the formal living room with a wood-burning fireplace, and a dining room of nearly equal size at 280 square feet. Both rooms are illuminated by natural light through the numerous windows. Through the hallway, an open-plan kitchen and dining area offer a combined 420 square feet and is adjacent to a 340-square-foot family room with a wood-burning fireplace, and built-in shelves and storage. Also accessed through here are a recreation room and a three-season sun room. There are hardwood floors throughout.
In the kitchen, the custom wood cabinetry, which includes an integrated wine rack, is topped with granite counters, including a breakfast bar that seats two. The terra-cotta tiled floors and handsome wrought iron and brushed metal light fixtures give the kitchen a rustic Tuscan feel. The stainless steel appliances include Viking gas range and double wall ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerator and a Miele dishwasher. A large laundry room off the kitchen, a 33-square-foot butler’s pantry, and a full bathroom complete the utility/convenience area here.
The large second-floor landing offers its own sitting area with views to the west through a large triptych-type arched window with side transoms overlooking the bay: “There’s your breathtaking sunset view from the house,” Rosmarin says. This floor is devoted to bedrooms all of which include wainscot paneled ensuite bathrooms. The primary suite encompasses a 260-square-foot bedroom, a 140-square-foot office with separation from the sleeping area by two hallways wrapping around a double-size walk-in closet. It shares a 124-square-foot balcony with one of the other guest rooms. The large bathroom is clad in topaz marble pattered tile and has a soaking tub underneath two windows offering water views.
Built by the current owner in 2006, the home is situated on a double lot of two acres with water access on two sides and “offers a unique and irreplaceable opportunity,” Rosmarin says. The house offers plenty of outdoor entertaining space, with large covered decks of varying sizes on three sides of the house. The property is self-contained with privet hedges, water and leafy trees creating natural borders to enclose an oversized gunite heated pool, outdoor shower and a tennis court with a spectator’s gazebo. A pathway of bluestone pavers lead to the dock from the house, complementing the low stacked walls and pillars on either side of the driveway and front porch entry. The house has been clad in a manufactured siding that resembles cedar shingle, a material that helps combat the salt and other weather elements. The heated three-car garage has finished floors and contains a 172-square-foot utility room.
Adjacent to the Quogue Historic District along Dune Road, the home is 2.2 miles from the Quogue Boardwalk and the Quogue Beach Club. Nearby natural assets include the Quogue Wildlife Refuge two miles away and five miles to the north, the Westhampton Dwarf Pine Plains Preserve.
“The village of Quogue is very desirable,” says Rosmarin, adding that the most distinctive feature of Quogue Village is the exclusive field club, established in 1887. “Generations have raised their children at the club, it’s very toney.”
Yet, at the same time, he says, “This is a very family-friend walk-around community. You walk into town and everyone knows who you are.”
