SOUTH OF HIGHWAY HISTORIC OPPORTUNITY! Rarely do historic gems like this come on the market. Built in approximately 1745, the "Abraham Baker House" has been designated by the Town of East Hampton as a Special Historic Landmark, and is one of 15 properties in East Hampton where the Town will permit owners to build a second dwelling/guest house. This is an opportunity to enjoy two dwellings -- one historic and one new construction -- all on one .8 acre lot. This fabled historic farmhouse was purchased in 1924 by the founders of the famed Riding Club of East Hampton and converted into a clubhouse for its members, who counted the Bouvier family among its ranks. Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy first learned to ride on the property. The historic home features a magnificent great room with dining area, large hearth and working fireplace, and original wood floors. A second fireplace warms a cozy study with beautiful wood paneling. Architectural treasures such as the original riding lockers are preserved in one of two first floor en-suite bedrooms. This South of the Highway location is less than a mile from Two Mile Hollow Beach and abuts the estate section of East Hampton Village.
