Get Them While They're Hot! By Barbara BakerQuintessential Quogue - $13,500,000The Goods - “Only once in a blue moon does a 4-acre waterfront property on Quogue’s most desirable street become available,” says listing agent, Brown Harris Stevens’ Marcia Altman of the compound that has been in the possession of Toys R Us founder Charles Lazarus for 40 years. Besides the main house, there are three other structures on the property: a towered recreational building carved out of the former stables; a boathouse that sits at water’s edge, and a 3-car garage.
