12 Sunset Avenue East Quogue, New York
Waterfront buyers looking for privacy, peaceful views, a deep-water dock, and separate accommodations for visiting guests will find this turn-key compound the perfect Hamptons spot. Set on nearly 2 lushly-landscaped and treed acres with 140 ft. of water frontage on Phillips Creek, the property features a FEMA-compliant and recently renovated 4-5 bedroom main house, as well as a charming 2 bedroom, 2 bath poolside cottage and detached 3-car garage with huge artist's studio/gym/office (with bath) above. Pass through the private gates of this waterfront paradise, located on one of East Quogue's premier streets, and you'll arrive at the approx. 4,500 sq. ft. main house, boasting multiple spacious decks and a screened porch to take in the delightful water views. With roots as a 1930's hunting lodge, today the George Vickers-renovated house showcases only the best of modern amenities. Highlights include a spacious eat-in chef's kitchen with vaulted ceilings, Carrera marble, top-of-the-line appliances, and window seat for reading on that rainy day. The formal dining room includes a valuable circa 1820 French marble fireplace with carved figural columns. Nearby is the laid-back living room that spills out onto the decks and porch for indoor/outdoor living. An adjoining den with full bath can be used as a 5th bedroom. Three separate wings lead to private sleeping accommodations. The master bedroom has its own private staircase, a wood-burning fireplace, private waterside deck and huge master bath. The house has 5-zone gas heat for energy efficiency. Outside, you'll find a 1,100 sq. ft. 2-bedroom, 2 bath guest cottage with living area and efficiency kitchen. Take a dip in the 50 ft. heated gunite lap pool and stroll the meticulous landscaping and gardens by Marcus Stinchi. The deep-water dock (6-8' at low tide) offers water and electric hook-up and can accommodate a 44' boat. The location allows easy boating access (with no bridges to navigate) to access the Shinnecock Canal, bay and ocean. All this, and only a 90-minute commute to mid-town Manhattan.
