About the property

5 bedroom 3 1/2 baths on the water with tennis court, dock and private beach

This warm summer home faces east over Quantuck Bay in the quiet hamlet named Quiogue between Westhampton and Quogue. This neighborhood was once home to the Immaculate Conception convent and this is the main house in a compound still held by the same family for six generations.

Great fishing, charming shops, decent vineyards, amazing fresh local produce, an LIRR train station and a vibrant town are all nearby. Perhaps best of all, it is five minutes to ocean beaches which are as beautiful as anything on the East coast.

There is a dock for your shallow draft boat and a small private beach for your wind surfer or kayak on this three acre property. There are crab nets and fishing poles and old bicycles and good books and cribbage boards and lovely neighbors and yes, dogs are more than welcome. The tennis court, which was built in 1876, beckons, “Come out and play.” Beautiful custom made stationary wooden benches under an oak tree overlook the three acre property. It is quiet and peaceful here.

Save yourselves an hour and a half of bumper to bumper driving; it’s just as nice here as east of the canal for less money. If you want to give your kids the quintessential summer at the shore, this is it.

About Bud Dunbar

60 years old, father of two, work in the environmental field, love this place, live nearby

Bud Dunbar purchased this house in 1876

Why Bud Dunbar chose Westhampton Beach

This property was given to my great great grandfather who was a minister in Brooklyn. It was given him by the Warden of his church who lived next door. Prior to WW2 the family bought five adjacent houses and when my mother was a kid, she had 8 cousins all living on the compound.

What makes this house unique

We have always been avid tennis players and there are two 75 year old 15' long custom built wooden benches for people to watch the tennis from. We have also been avid sailors and we would usually sail over to the beach for the day. We have also been dog owners from the get go and there is a wireless dog fence on the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

August 2017

Absolutely perfect!! We could not ask for a more perfect place to spend our family vacation!! It is exactly as it looks in the pictures but having Bud as a host made it even better. When it rained he lent us his giant umbrella and any questions we had he was very quick to respond. Lovely place. Wonderful host. I would happily stay here again!

This property has been in a single family for over 135 years. It is not ostentatious or wasteful but it has been home to many wonderful people and well loved for six generations. We don't water the lawn or fertilize it in order to protect the bay so the grounds are pretty simple. The beaches out here are some of the best in the country so we have always gone there instead of putting in a pool.
