House With Private Museum Goes On The Market In Quiogue

Hmm, spend the weekend relaxing at your beautiful waterfront estate, or go visit an art museum? This will not be a dilemma at all for the buyer of 607 Main Street on Quiogue. The mansion, just listed for $23,450,000 (via Tim Davis at Corcoran), has the distinction of its own art museum, created by the businessman and philanthropist Jerome Stern, assisted by his wife, Ellen.

First, some details about the 16-acre property on Quiogue, west of the Shinnecock Canal: Affectionately known as “Camp Jerome” and originally owned and operated as a country farm, the 17-room residence with two guesthouses has not been for sale in more than 50 years. The 16 acres contains three parcels with more than 500 feet of newly bulkheaded water frontage as well as the three-stall horse barn with paddocks. The 10-bedroom, 10-bath main house boasts beautiful bay views and easy access to the 50-foot in-ground pool with pavilion and tennis court. The two- and three-bedroom guesthouses are conveniently located off the main driveway. Meander through the pine forest and various pathways to a 7,500-square-foot art barn structure housing the family’s private art collection, which is a climate-controlled 2.5-story galvanized steel building on a separate parcel.

“Endless possibilities exist as a private gallery space or car collector’s warehouse while easily re-purposed as an additional guesthouse,” we’re told. “Be the next owner of this private enclave 1.5 hours to New York City and just 10 minutes from Gabreski Airport.” Original construction on the property, which overlooks Quantuck Bay, was completed in 1902, and today total living space is 9,400 square feet.

It is no wonder that Jerome Stern, who died this past March, wanted an art museum as part of his home. Art was a passion of his during his 93 years, as was philanthropy. The venture capitalist was a dedicated art collector and patron of art institutions. Mr. Stern was a founder of the Israel Museum, New Museum, and Studio Museum of Harlem, and philanthropic endeavors included support in various ways of the Israel Tennis Centers, Ohr Torah Stone, Lincoln Square Synagogue, and the Hampton Synagogue in Westhampton Beach.

Buy Camp Jerome and you’ll never have to wait in line to see an art exhibit again!
