Jule Pond is an oceanfront estate that occupies over 42 acres of the premier real estate at the Hamptons. The property boasts almost a quarter of a mile of ocean frontage, the largest in the area, and direct access to a private beach. It is also surrounded by three ponds and offers impeccable views of Mecox Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
This celebrated estate dates to the 1960 when it was commissioned and built for the Ford family. It was part of a 235-acre property known as ‘Fordune,’ and was described as “one of the greatest showplaces of the times.”
The estate was purchased in 2002 and completely renovated in 2008 while retaining esteemed elements like the distinctive molded ceilings, chandeliers, Italian marble fireplaces, French parquet floors and antique bathroom fixtures. The property is accessed past the gated entrance with a tree-lined driveway that leads up to the main house. This structure has a spacious 20,000 square-foot floor plan that extends across three levels. The modest entrance hides the internal grandeur that welcomes visitors with its grand staircase and open views of the southern grounds. The impressive chef’s kitchen, dinning and seating room, library, office, living and family rooms are all located on the first level. Here you’ll also find the TV room, game room, gym with sauna, bar and four bedrooms. The second level divided into two parts contains two master bedrooms, one with a panoramic terrace, six other bedrooms and access to the attic. The property also includes a 60-foot swimming pool, spa, an outdoor kitchen, and tennis and basketball courts.
