The Apaquogue in East Hampton

An East Hampton home built in 1884 has hit the market for the first time in more than a century.

Known as the Apaquogue and located at 72 Apaquogue Road, the home was listed on July 1 for $16.9 million, Behind the Hedges reported. In the middle of the 19th century, the property’s former owner, Abraham Candy, ran a boarding house on his farm.

E.A. LaForest took over the property in 1882, but the boarding house burned down two years later. A 22-room boarding house was rebuilt in its place, a building that stands to this day and from which a hotel was run. The hotel was converted in 1912 into a summer home, which housed Belgian children who were evacuated from Europe during World War I, according to Behind the Hedges.

The outlet noted that the property’s current owners, whose identities were not immediately available, are selling because their family has grown, with various individuals living in different cities and not spending as much time in East Hampton as they would like.

The 10,000-square-foot, four-story home currently has 16 bedrooms, seven bathrooms, three fireplaces and a large wrap-around porch. The four-acre property doesn’t have a pool or tennis court, but is zoned for it, as well as a finished basement, Patch reported.

Frank Newbold, one of the East End’s top residential brokers per The Real Deal‘s recent ranking, and colleague Marilyn Clark from Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing. [Behind the Hedges] — Aidan Gardiner
