A Southampton estate originally built for Henry Ford II and his family in 1960 has been listed by its current owner for $175 million, making it the most expensive property on the market in the state of New York.
Known as Jule Pond, the 42-acre estate offers the largest ocean frontage in the Hamptons with nearly 1,300 linear feet. A tree-lined driveway leads to the 20,000-square-foot main residence, which boasts 12 bedrooms (including two master suites) and 12 baths. Outside, the sprawling estate offers everything from a 60-foot swimming pool and spa to an outdoor kitchen and shower. Three ponds, verdant trees, and a meditation garden with a koi pond and waterfall feature give the property a serene feel. Sports enthusiasts will appreciate the tennis court and basketball court, and green thumbs can utilize the original on-site greenhouse where the Ford family once grew their own fruits and vegetables. Winding pathways to a quarter-mile of private beachfront overlooking the ocean.
