Quimby Lane Property Held By Same Family Since 1800s Is For Sale For $14M

Sep 2, 2019 10:02 AM

A Bridgehampton property that has stayed in the hands of the Quimby family since the 1800s is on the market, including a four-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom residence built in 2009.

The 3.4-acre property is in the old estate section on the family’s namesake Quimby Lane and asking $14 million.

The Balinese-style estate was designed by Peter Cook and built by Glen Web with landscape design by Ed Hollander. What’s Balinese-style, exactly? It’s inspired by Bali, a volcanic island off Indonesia with a distinct vernacular architecture.

A pool house with roses, flowering vines and a wet bar sits aside the heated gunite pool. Mature specimen trees and hedges provide privacy and a meadow complements the lawn.

The residence, with a flared hip roof, has cathedral ceilings clad in cherry wood and Venetian plaster and glass walls.

The living room has a central fireplace and leads to a raised formal dining room and an eat-in kitchen with counter seating, shaker cabinets, a butcher block island and stainless steel appliances. A wet bar leads to the round sitting room with motorized shades and French doors to the grounds. A screened porch has a sitting and dining area that blends the indoors and out.

The master suite has walk-in closets, a gas fireplace, window seating and a soaker tub. The lower level is partially finished with recreation space.

Among the many amenities are radiant heat floors, central vacuum, and home automation.

Dana Trotter has the listing for Sotheby’s.
