This is a unique opportunity to own one of the largest parcels of land in historic Springs, a beloved home owned by the same founding family since 1880. Located in the Heart of the Springs on 9.95 +/- acres, the Victorian-era farmhouse was built for Julius Parsons, a seventh generation Parsons in East Hampton, who once kept the nearby Springs General Store. A large barn, studio (believed to have been owned by a native American), and a family cemetery make the property a homage to the past with an opportunity for the future to create a stunning compound. The property invites you to relax and enjoy echoes of days spent picking strawberries to make jam, or fetching fresh eggs from the chicken coop for breakfast. A weekly Saturday farmer's market nearby continues the tradition and, while one may not skate over the frozen Gardiner's Bay as Parsons did, it is the perfect place to paddle board or kayak while relishing the stunning scenery and calm bay beaches. Ocean beaches are a short drive away. The vistas of Accabonac Harbor have inspired artists such as Jackson Pollock whose house, now a museum, is close by. Contemporary artists' work is shown at nearby Ashawagh Hall. Victorian architectural details abound from the front porch of the 6 bedroom, 2 bath farmhouse. Two pillared porches accent the front entry doors. The doors flow into double parlors and then into a dining room. These rooms have edge grain pine flooring. Continuing through the first floor, the home design features a walk-in pantry, kitchen, and mud room. A bedroom and bath complete the first floor. The mahogany spindled staircase leads upstairs to five bedrooms, a bath, and third floor attic. Majestic mature maples adorn the deep forested lot which is a source of peaceful enjoyment. History: Rich in history as a working farm, the property once raised horses, cows, pigs, and chickens. An ice house pit where blocks of ice cut from Accabonac Creek were stored to keep fish fresh during transit to NYC Fulton Fish Market remains. Early in the twentieth century, a Delco electric system was installed having enough power to run either one light in the main house or light the Presbyterian Church across the street, but not both at the same time. With Accabonac Creek shellfish, ample trees for wood and building, and nearby bays for fishing, the farm was self-sufficient. The Parsons family conducted business with the Gardiner family, heirs of Gardiner's Island, transporting goods such as livestock, gun powder and grain across Gardiners Bay. Springs Fireplace Road derives its name, because before electronic communications, a fire would be built on the beach to signal Gardiner's Island residents. The property has been updated through time but retains a sense of a charming bygone era. According to Julius Parson's grand daughter, Mary Louise Edwards Dodge, who lived on the property until her death in 2008, the Indian word Accabonac means "root place" or "home." This well-loved and historic residence is ready for its next owners to set down their own roots with a new vision for the future.
