When this Amagansett residence last landed on the market, it asked a whopping $11,995,000. Recently, it’s been relisted, this time for $7,595,000.
Known as the Main House at Quail Hall, this residence offers over five acres of land, a three-car garage, and a swimming pool. There is also a wine cellar and outdoor fireplace. A total of four bedrooms and six bathrooms are across the home’s 5,500 square feet of space.
According to a Curbed Hamptons article published in August 2015, the residence was constructed in the early 1950s for the founder of Faberge cosmetics, Samuel Rubin. Alfred Scheffer, otherwise known as "the dean of East Hampton architects," designed the structure with bluestone patios and cedar ceiling beams.
While the home has been modernized over the years, it still retails many of its original Scheffer touches. The modernization has brought solar panels to the listing as well as geothermal heating and cooling, central steam humidification, internet controlled thermostats, a Sonos sound system, and backup generator.
