The incredible 14,000-square-foot Quogue estate at 23 Shinnecock Road known as Belle Mead—which was one of the last works by famous architect Stanford White—went on the market less than two months ago for $9,875,000 and has already gone into contract.
Originally built in 1906 (the same year the White died), the current owners purchased the iconic estate in 2011 for $5.4 million and sought to restore the home back to its original early 20th century glory. In 2014, it went up for sale with a $15.5 million asking price.
In addition to having been built by the same architect who designed Montauk’s Seven Sisters, it has also had several notable residents. The current Corcoran listing claims that it was “commissioned by the Greeff textile family” who had a fabrics business in the 18th and 19th centuries.
It was also once the residence of Eileen Ford, the founder of Ford Models, which is now one of the best-known modelling agencies in the world and currently represents names like Andreja Pejić and Channing Tatum.
There are 10 bedrooms and eight bathrooms inside the massive home, which is sited on a sizable 3.4 acres of land. Outside, there’s a pool and exterior dining and lounging space.
The property was represented by Corcoran Real Estate’s Tim and Thomas Davis.
