HRES is known for its pages of multi-million dollar listings, but once in a while a property comes along that requires a bit more attention like this one of a kind 17 acre estate being represented by Susan Breitenbach. HRES sat down with Susan to find out what makes this Ocean Road estate exceptional.

Q:  Susan, your knowledge of real estate, especially in the Hamptons, is extensive.  You have been in this business for quite some time…do you ever see yourself taking a break?

A:  Absolutely not.  I live and breathe real estate, and I can’t imagine it any other way. I really love what I do.  I have also met so many interesting people over the years and so many have become close friends. It is more of a lifestyle than a profession to me. I don’t believe you can do real estate well part time… you have to be available 24/7 and know every aspect of the market.

Q:  Susan, you have been the #1 agent in the Hamptons for the past few years…does this put more pressure on you with your clients?

A: I think they expect the best, and I do my best not to disappoint them!

Q:  You list some of the most spectacular properties in the Hamptons. What makes this property so special?

A: This property is one of the most unique properties left in the Hamptons and can be passed on for generations to come. It is an incredible compound with 17 acres South of the Highway in the estate section of Bridgehampton on Ocean Road.  It is so very difficult to find an estate property of this size with endless possibilities including two single and separate 2+ acre lots, plus a 13 acre agriculture reserve with permits for your own horse farm, possible vineyard, tree farm, orchard, or combine to customize your lifestyle.  There is a gated entry which leads to a spectacular new residence, traditional shingled exterior with covered porches from every room, and crisp more modern interior with every amenity including all custom doors and windows, radiant heat floors, chef’s top-of -the-line kitchen,  media room, and much more. This residence has a “club house” with sliding Nano doors which lead onto a putting green, and tennis court.  The other 2+ acre lot has an amazing “pool house” with sliding glass walls as well, and the most spectacular outdoor kitchen, pergola, oversized heated gunite pool, and separate Jacuzzi, and room for another 12 -15,000 sq. ft. dream home of your choice.  This spectacular new residence built by Breitenbach Builders includes gardens that are impeccably designed by Edmund Hollander and bring the whole property together.

Q: As one of the top brokers in the nation, how do you think this property compares to other homes in this price range?

A: This property is in a league of its own!  There is no other property currently like it on the market in the Hamptons at this time.  The quality of construction, workmanship, and materials used are unparalleled.

Q: This exceptional property includes a separate building lot which have preliminary renderings for another large home, a 13.4 acre reserve with permits for a possible horse farm, but could also be used for vineyards, orchards, wildflowers, or any other agriculture use.  What would be your recommendation for the potential homeowner to best utilize the property?

A: I think it would be a sensational estate to entertain, or a family compound. The possibilities are endless to have your own enclave in the middle of Bridgehampton South, whether to build your own dream home with horse farm, vineyards, orchids, organic farm, or to look out across expansive wildflowers and lawn.  You could have two large residences each with tennis,pool and pool houses plus reserve! Land is getting so hard to come by in excellent locations like this and they are not making any more of it!
