Why is Joe Farrell significant to the real estate industry?
Joe Farrell is known for his work as a developer in the Hamptons, but particularly for the 10-bedroom, 15-bathroom “the Sandcastle” mansion at 612 Halsey Lane, Bridgehampton.

The Sandcastle is a 17,000 square foot estate in Bridgehampton. Farrell’s family sometimes uses the Sandcastle as a primary residence, but have been known to rent to celebrities (including Beyonce and Jay-Z and Madonna) and other high-profile individuals.
