Historic Apaquogue Hits The Market For First Time In A Century

authorStaff Writer on Jul 12, 2019

The Apaquogue, a 10,000-square-foot East Hampton Village residence built in 1884 as a boardinghouse, has just hit the market for the first time in a century.

The four stories include 16 bedrooms, seven bathrooms and three fireplaces. It has a large wraparound porch that catches breezes off the nearby ocean and retains period details. The 4 acres are located at 72 Apaquogue Road while a small tail of land connects the back of the property to La Forest Lane. The asking price is $16.9 million.

According to “Images of America: East Hampton” by John W. Rae, Abraham D. Candy owned a 107-acre farm on Apaquogue Road and built a boardinghouse there that was sold in 1882 to Mrs. E.A. LaForest. That boardinghouse burned, and the Apaquogue was built in its place two years later.

A classified advertisement in The Brooklyn Daily Eagle on May 14, 1909, sought a buyer for The Apaquogue. “Hotel for sale,” the ad stated. “The Hotel or Boarding House at East Hampton known as The Apaquogue will accommodate thirty boarders. Large stable. Three and half acres of good land. Half mile from ocean. Terms reasonable for prompt sale.” Interested parties could contact Joseph S. Osborne.

In 1912, Mrs. A.A. Cater bought the Apaquogue, and then Julian S. Myrick was the last purchaser in 1919—once again, according to Mr. Rae’s “East Hampton.”

The Apaquogue can be updated or it could razed and replaced with a 10,550-square-foot main house with additional living space in a finished basement, the Sotheby’s listing advises. Associate brokers Frank Newbold and Marilyn Clark have the listing.

State Issues New Regulations In Response To Newsday’s Housing Discrimination Investigation

The New York State Board of Real Estate has approved new regulations to combat housing discrimination in response to a three-year Newsday investigation. The investigation and subsequent report, titled “Long Island Divided,” found widespread illegal discrimination against minority homebuyers. Newsday also found that the fair housing and anti-discrimination training classes that real estate agents are required to attend were, more often than not, inaccurate, confusing or incomplete. Governor Andrew Cuomo directed the Department of State to issue new regulations in light of Newsday’s report, which was published in November. On December 16, the State Board of Real Estate — which ... by Staff Writer
