Once owned by Federal Judge Irving Ben Cooper, this treehouse-inspired Remsenburg home is on the market for $1.05 million under Corcoran Group’s agent, Natalie Lewis.

Irving Ben Cooper worked on many high-profile cases during his time in office, including a complaint that Jackie Kennedy Onassis filed against paparazzi and a claim that baseball was monopolizing major and minor league teams. Though he passed away in 1996 at age 94, the home has stayed in his family for three generations.

Built in 1965, the home was modeled after California cliff-side ranches. In just 1,000 square feet, there’s only one bedroom and two bathrooms, but sited on nearly 2 acres of land. According to the listing, there’s also the opportunity to purchase the adjacent 1.24-acre lot with a five-bedroom house on it to make a compound over 3 acres in size.

Unfortunately, there aren’t a whole lot of photos available of the interiors—so we’re thinking that they aren’t in the best shape. But the interior photo that is available shows a wide open living space, a retro fireplace, and sliding glass doors that lead to an exterior deck.

Located at 5 Remsen Lane, the property is sited less than a mile from beaches on Moriches Bay.
