Between the bridges in the most highly sought after oceanfront location in Westhampton Beach this distinctive shingle style estate with 300+/- ft. ocean frontage on 5.1 acres presents a number of possibilities to the savvy buyer. Designed in 1909 by architect J. Sarsfield Kennedy (who also designed the famous Gingerbread House in Bay Ridge and the Picnic House in Prospect Park) this home incorporates elements of what was described as both a European villa and craftsman style design, and is so well built that it survived the great hurricane of 1938 unscathed. The 5,700+/- sq. ft. home offers eight bedrooms, six full and two half baths, with panoramic ocean views from many large windows, and a private boardwalk to the beach. A graceful curving driveway leads to the home, where a fieldstone porte cochere opens to the columned front porch. Built to take maximum advantage of summer sea breezes in a time before air conditioning, the home has screened porches providing cross ventilation. Other delightful features include beamed ceilings, fireplaces, bay windows with banquette seating, beautiful woodworking and convivial spaces for gathering and entertaining. The eat-in kitchen area offers counter seating, a charcoal barbecue and glass doors to an expansive ocean-view terrace with covered seating areas and sunny places for dining or relaxing. At the western end of the home is a sunroom with bar, and a separate small living area. Outdoors, set away from the house, is the heated gunite pool and spa, and an elegant pool house with high, open ceilings with beautiful beams and rafters, currently a billiard room and lounge. This classic home could be restored and updated to preserve its classic beach house charm while providing 21st-century amenities, a new home could be constructed on this rare 5+/-acre oceanfront lot, or the property could potentially be subdivided. In every case, the setting is nothing less than spectacular.
