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.
