The Former Ford Family Compound Is the Most Expensive Listing in the Hamptons
Jule Pond, a 42-acre oceanfront retreat in Southampton originally commissioned by and built for Henry Ford and his family, has just come on the market for $175M, making it the most expensive home for sale in the Hamptons. In addition to its notable price, the estate also offers the largest ocean frontage in the Hamptons, which spans nearly a quarter mile.
Extensively renovated in 2008, Jule Pond’s main stucco residence has maintained many original details throughout its 20,000 square feet including molded ceilings, traditional chandeliers, Italian marble fireplaces and French parquet floors. The octagonal reception room was imported from France and there are 2 lavish master suites along with 10 more bedrooms.
The secluded property is home to a 3-bedroom carriage house in addition to the expansive main residence as well as a detached 6-car garage. An outdoor recreation area includes a gunite swimming pool with a separate spa, a full outdoor kitchen and multiple dining and entertaining areas. There are also tennis and basketball courts.
