New to the market is this awe-inspiring $17.25 million compound—dubbed Robbins Farm—on Wyandanch Lane in Southampton. The nearly five-acre property belongs to the Edward Mele Trust, and has the potential to become a large estate, complete with several outbuildings. As is, the waterfront land consists of four separate structures, including a gate house, a barn, a stable, and a rustic shed.
While many of the structures have been converted into residences and guest houses, none of them really scream multi-million dollar estate. To fix that, the trust successfully petitioned to tear down the circa 1899 stables and replace it with a home—a move that preservationist Sally Spanburgh called "a shame." Fortunately, the decision to "create an unparalleled compound" (or to leave this authentic one as is) ultimately rests with the future buyer!
