It's spread across 42 acres in the Hamptons, it's been on the market for almost two years without a sale, and now according to its most recent listing on Bespoke Real Estate it's now $30 million cheaper. It's called Jule Pond, and it's now got an asking price of $145 million.
Located in Southampton, Jule Pond's recent $30 million price chop means that it is no longer the most expensive home listing in the Hamptons, which was a position it held at the $175 million price point. It first went up for sale back in August of 2017, so far without success, despite being a very impressive piece of property.
How impressive? Enough for its original owner, none other than Henry Ford, for whom it was originally built, per Business Insider. The main house at Jule Pond has a generous 20,000 square feet of space, with room for 12 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a library complete with indoor koi pond and waterfall, and various ornate furnishings. But what makes the property really special is arguably outside: Not just the swimming pool and tennis court, but gorgeous Southampton views and a beautiful stretch of beach side wilderness and multiple ponds.
Also outside, you'll find a six-car garage, greenhouse, basketball court, and even a three-bedroom "carriage house." And as the Bespoke Real Estate listing states, Jule Pond is a distinguished property even in the Hamptons, which has some of the finest real estate in the world:
"Located in the Town of Southampton, this 42+ acre oceanfront estate offers the largest ocean frontage in the Hamptons, spanning nearly a quarter mile (1,286 linear feet). Further complementing its rarity is its setting and scale. The property is bordered by 3 ponds, affording unobstructed views of Mecox Bay and the open ocean."
Even if you don't have $145 million to spare in order to take advantage of that price cut, you can take a look at Jule Pond in the video tour below:
