Narrow Lane Farm
An air of early Americana pervades this one-of-a-kind equestrian estate in Sagaponack. Steps from the Wölffer Estate and Stables, a vineyard and equestrian facility with 140 miles of trails, the luxurious 2.94-acre property was once a humble potato farm.
Adhering to impressive standards of craftsmanship and style, the current owners imaginatively re-created the compound as an enchanting estate encompassing 10 buildings—offering seven bedrooms and 14 baths—a pool, a fruit orchard, and private vineyard.
The transformation was undertaken carefully, with an eye to the area’s history and agrarian past.
Among the most intriguing elements is the present-day pool house, known as the Marconi Barn.
The building began life as the first telegraph station on Long Island, dating to around 1902, and has been elegantly reconstructed and modernized.
The farm’s original potato barn was renewed as an equestrian center with three horse stalls, a loft sitting area, a bath, and a groom’s lounge.
Adjacent is a run-in barn with paddocks and Amish wood fencing.
The centerpiece of the estate is a wholly new, delightfully charming 7,304-square-foot residence, which occupies the footprint of the farm’s primary barn.
Of its four bedroom suites, the master retreat includes a sitting room, a marble bath, and access to a terrace overlooking the grounds.
A screening room with sliding African mahogany barn doors is located in the basement.
Many of the home’s interior spaces benefit from airy vaulted ceilings, and a local ironworker hand-forged door hinges and balusters throughout.
Given that the property includes a private vineyard and is adjacent to one as well, it is fitting that a 300-foot long climate-controlled tunnel links the main residence to a stylish, secluded wine cave.
The two-bedroom guesthouse is a rejuvenated 1920s farmhouse of roughly 2,600 square feet.
Of the five transformed original barns, two were destined for entertaining. Tavern on the Green—named after the iconic Central Park restaurant—has a sleek, handsome palette; a fireplace; oak floors; shiplap paneling; and a bar with a double-tap beer tower.
The Farm to Table barn is certain to be the site of many a festive meal.
The barn-style two-car garage also offers an apartment and—one of the property’s most appealing features—a sunken hot tub terrace.
At the heart of century-old black-oak trees, farmland, equestrian fields, and a 250-plant vineyard is the refreshing heated salt water pool, a perfect spot for relaxing and appreciating the vintage charm that surrounds it.
