The site used to be a polo field

A home that is on the location of what was previously a polo field is now for sale in East Hampton, as reported by Newsday. The home was owned by the Talmage family, and is near what used to be the family’s dairy farm. The Talmage family is one of the founding families of East Hampton Town.

This is a great opportunity to own a great piece of history in East Hampton.

The 3,300-square-foot home is on a 1.7 acre property with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The great room has 25-foot cathedral ceilings, a wall of windows, and fireplace. The exterior is surrounded with white plank horse fencing, to maintain the integrity of the property’s history as a polo field. There is a heated gunite pool and Har-Tru tennis courts in the backyard.
