From the listing: Welcome to Somerset. Inspired by the Governor’s Palace in Williamsburg, Virginia, this notable estate was completed in 1935 and remains a crown jewel of Long Island’s fabled North Shore.
Commanding nearly 11 level, waterfront acres overlooking Long Island Sound, Somerset enjoys an unassuming approach that leads to the end of a long, private road adjacent to the lush David Weld Sanctuary, a tranquil, wooded nature preserve.
The property, with its specimen plantings and exceptional privacy, boasts a staggering span of nearly 700-feet of waterfrontage along the shoreline, the toe of which has been fortified by a newly constructed seawall of steel and stone.
The unparalleled views of Smithtown Bay and Long Island Sound defy description, though statesman Daniel Webster liked to call the Sound, “our American Mediterranean.”
Nissequogue has been heralded by The New York Times and Newsday as a luxury alternative to the Hamptons.
An adjacent 4-acre waterfront parcel is available separately.
