A Hamptons Farmhouse Hits the Market After More Than a Century in the Same Family

After more than a century in the same family, a historic Hamptons farmhouse is on the market.

The East Hampton home was built around 1880 by Julius Parsons, says his great-grandson Cleon Dodge. Currently, Mr. Dodge and his brother Carter Dodge are putting about 11 acres of land on the market for his $6.97 million.

Sotheby’s International Realty listing agents Jenny Lundy and Zach Deighton said the property is located in the Springs area, a few hundred feet from Acabbonac Harbour, off Gardiner’s Bay. Randy says the white farmhouse spans about 2,800 square feet and has six bedrooms and two porches. She said the interior includes a double her parlor, original pine floors and a mahogany staircase.

The property also has a two-story barn built in the 19th century and a studio used as a workshop.

Cleon Dodge, a retired engineer from Pennsylvania, and Carter Dodge, a retired doctor from New Hampshire, lived in this house as children, according to Cleon Dodge. He inherited the house from Louise Edwards Dodge and has been vacationing in it ever since.

Growing up, the brothers used the on-site studio to continually repair their late father’s 16-foot wooden yacht.

The Parsons family were members of the original colonization of East Hampton in the 1600s, says historic preservation consultant Robert Hefner. Julius Parsons used the homestead as his family home and farm, he said.

The listing agent hopes to attract buyers looking to build a family building.Since the property is located in a historic district, any exterior renovations or additions are subject to review by the town.

East Hampton homes are located near Accavonac Harbour.
