98 Dune Road, Quogue
This new build on the oceanfront sold just two months after the home was listed for sale, according to Douglas Elliman Real Estate. By builder George Vickers of Westhampton Beach, the 4,300-square-foot residence on 0.61 acre with an oceanside gunite pool has five en-suite bedrooms, all with ocean views, and two half-baths. All bathrooms feature full-slab floors, radiant heat and custom vanities, and the master bedroom upstairs has a custom master bath with a large walk-in closet and private balcony.
The coffered ceilings are 10 feet tall, and 8-inch plank engineered white oak floors are underfoot. A gourmet chef’s kitchen is located on the first floor with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, a pantry and custom white oak cabinets with a cerused finish. Common spaces include a large dining room, den and living room with a gas fireplace.
There are washers and dryers on both floors and automated shades throughout. Also among the amenities are indoor and outdoor speakers and Creston smart home technology and security.
There are two outdoors kitchens with Lynx grills, expansive decks, a hot tub, a carport and a private boardwalk.
Colleen Graning of Douglas Elliman had the listing.
“This property was built in just seven months by George Vickers Enterprises, which is amazing in itself, and what is most memorable to me is how quickly it was snapped up for sale,” Graning said. “This beautiful home was in contract within five days of launch and the brokers’ open house and closed within 30 days. This really speaks to the strong demand we’re seeing for new construction in the Hamptons right now.”
April Kaynor of William Raveis brought the buyer in conjunction with the Morabito Weiss team at Compass.
Dune Part 3 LLC sold to 98 Dune Road LLC on October 7, 2022.
339 Dune Road, Westhampton Beach
On just shy of an acre, this oceanfront beach house with glass details, stonework and extensive decking has seven bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms. A large circular fireplace is at the center of a massive living room designed for entertaining. A chef’s kitchen has granite countertops and a 8-foot-by-10-foot island, two refrigerators and a dual oven. The kitchen flows into a spacious dining room, and also among the interior spaces is an oceanview exercise room.
The house was rebuilt after the original structure burned down in 1984, pointed out Mary Binder, the associate broker with Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty who represented the property along with Dianne Klink. “Every single room, except for two rooms in the house, are ocean view,” Binder said.
A tennis court is on the bayside, and an 18-foot-by-45-foot-pool and a 12-person hot tub are on the oceanside.
Binder said six interested buyers flew in from around the globe to view the property and make offers, and the new owner is from IKO Roofing Company in Toronto. She said the sellers were the Lanza family — and the new owner was disappointed that he didn’t get to keep the portrait of the Lanzas’ bootlegger grandfather from Brooklyn that had hung in the home.
The asking price was $11.9 million, and the buyer contacted Binder directly. The sale closed on April 1, 2022.

40 Ocean Avenue, Quogue
Designed in 2016 by award-winning architect David Neff, this 1.24-acre property on a peninsula in Quogue Village’s estate section has the feeling of a world-class resort, according to the Saunders & Associates listing. The 5,000-square-foot, five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom coastal shingle-style home was designed to “let the amazing setting do all the talking.”
The 270-degree water views span from the Quogue Field Club Golf Course to the Quogue Canal, Dune Road and the Quogue Bridge. Nearly every room has water views.
Natural cedar and stone materials were used on the exterior, and Fleetwood sliding doors run the length of the living and dining rooms.
The first floor features wide-plank fumed oak floors and cerused oak walls with chevron inlays. The sun-drenched great room has a built-in bar, gas fireplace with slate surround, and opens to the three-season screened porch.
The chef’s kitchen, with custom cabinetry by Deane Kitchens and Caesarstone counters, has a 60-inch dual-fuel Wolf range, two serving islands, two dishwashers, two refrigerators, two sinks and a 48-bottle wine refrigerator. The backsplash is made of hand-crafted cement tile from Mosaic House and was featured in The New York Times.
Other highlights on the first floor include a powder room, a large dining room that opens to a dining deck, a den/office, and a mud/laundry room with full bath.
The primary suite with automatic shades, a large dressing room and bath is on the second floor. Among the four additional en-suite bedrooms is a six-bed bunk room.
Outside, find ipe and bluestone decking, a heated gunite pool with built-in spa, and plantings of beach grasses, bayberry and hydrangea by landscape designer Mario Nievera.
The listing quotes Neff as saying the buyer will be treated to “two magic moments” during the day: “In the early morning, there is amazing light that comes across the water to the east, when all the egrets and birds are dancing on the glistening water. And the house takes on an alpenglow as the sun sets over the marsh to the west.”
He added, “By far, this was one of my favorite projects. I hope the new owners will find as much magic as my clients — and I — have.”
On September 20, 2022, The Cotswolds LLC sold to Old Bridge LLC.
