A 28.4-acre compound in Shinnecock Hills by architect and urban planner Grosvenor Atterbury with grounds by Frederick Olmsted, the father of American landscape architecture, has come on the market for the first time in decades.

At 409 and 369 Montauk Highway, the compound is listed for $29.95 million. A 14.7-acre parcel includes a circa 1912 bespoke residence and a historic carriage house, as well as a garage, greenhouse, pool, pool house, and tennis court. The second parcel, at 15.2 acres, comprises rolling woodland.

One or both of the parcels could be subdivided, the listing from Sotheby’s International Realty and associate broker Christina Galesi states.

Through the gates, a winding driveway encircles a Venetian fountain and leads through a porte cochère to the cobblestone entry of the 12,601-square-foot fully renovated main house with 12 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.

“The world class, professionally maintained landscaping has a wide variety of exquisite specimen trees and plants,” the listing states. “Watch spectacular sunsets from the lounge area overlooking the serene rolling hills or take to the jogging trails around the entire perimeter of the 30 acres.”

The main house has a stucco façade, and the grand entry leads to a sun-drenched formal living room, dining room, and study, each with custom limestone and marble fireplaces. Classic details throughout the residence include custom trim and crown molding, walnut floors with mahogany ribboned trim and Venetian plaster. Ceilings are 12 feet, and custom insulated glass windows and doors let in abundant natural light.

The main house also features an eat-in kitchen and butler’s pantry appointed with top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances; a family room; an al fresco outdoor dining area with a koi pond; and a primary suite with a sitting area with views of Shinnecock Bay and a fireplace, and an onyx spa bath with Lefroy Brooks fixtures and a sauna.

Five of the bedrooms are located in the guest wing tower connected via a portico with a three-stop elevator to the look-out terrace, a 10-seat movie theater with fiber-optic ceiling lighting, and a separate two-bedroom apartment with a kitchen.

Amenities include geothermal and six-zone heating and cooling systems, radiant floor heating, central station alarm systems, and an audio/visual system.
