This idyllic waterfront compound at 74-80 Cedar Lane in the secluded Southampton hamlet of Remsenburg was once a 19th-century hunting lodge. In far more recent days, complete restoration and renovation have bestowed this charming property–it’s currently the hamlet’s most expensive listing at $17,500,000–with some top-tier modern additions like an elevator, a guest house, a pool and tennis court, a porte-cochere and a five-car garage with hydraulic lifts, a boathouse, a fitness room, and a wine cellar. And in case you forget the laid-back Hamptons vibe, there’s even an old-fashioned windmill on the property.

The best feature of this unique seven-acre estate south of Montauk Highway may be one that only nature can provide. Waterfront views stretch over Seatuck Cove and Moriches Bay for unforgettable sunsets.

The main house has nine bedrooms and nine-and-a-half baths. Anchoring the ground floor is a round sunroom with cathedral ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace. This vast, airy space is both tranquil and elegant, perfect for entertaining a crowd or just enjoying the morning light.

The living room has a built-in bar and another wood-burning fireplace. Also on the ground floor, you’ll find a formal dining room and a wood-paneled library/study.

The thoroughly modern kitchen boasts granite countertops, a Wolf range, dual ovens and dishwashers, and a 17-foot island. French doors lead from the kitchen to a brick-paved patio overlooking the water. There is also a temperature-controlled wine cellar.

On the second floor, the primary bedroom has dual closets and a private porch with water views. The luxurious master bath is surrounded by windows and has radiant floor heating.

Each of the remaining bedrooms has its own unique architectural charm, including an octagonal bedroom surrounded by windows and topped by a wood-beamed cathedral ceiling.

Even your cars get pampered here. A porte-cochere provides shelter and a detached five-car garage features commercial-grade hydraulic car lifts.

A pool house with a sauna and a gym overlooks a heated saltwater gunite pool. Har-Tru tennis courts add yet another classic country club athletic opportunity. A quaint refurbished windmill sits at the center of the property.

A four-bedroom guest house means your guests will never want to leave. There’s plenty of privacy and even more sunlight and waterfront paradise views.

A sweeping, lush lawn meets waterfront docks and a sandy beach. Dock rights and a boathouse give you a private entry to beautiful Moriches Bay.
