Saunders Has Bootleg-Era Exclusive

Saunders & Associates announced that a vintage cottage-style home rumored to have housed a prohibition-era bootlegging operation has hit the market. It is exclusively for sale through Saunders agent Jackie Lowey.

Originally purchased with an old-style liquor still in the basement and a mature grape arbor in the yard, this historic home harkens back to old East Hampton and has been in the same family for more than 50 years.

Lowey, an East Hampton resident and a former deputy director of the National Park Service, explained, “Representing historic homes is a passion for me. I love to peel back the layers of their past and discover the fabled stories of the East End’s rich history. Last year I sold the historic Conklin House, located just across the street from this home. While 68 Accabonac’s bootlegging days may be past, the home has a bright future and I’m looking forward to finding the right buyer for this wonderful property.”

Located just outside of the East Hampton Village boundary and close to village shops, restaurants, and beaches, this charming home features a welcoming kitchen with wide-plank wood floors, three bedrooms, two baths, and an office/sitting room as well as an enclosed front porch. There is also a detached garage/studio.

With room for a pool and expansion, this village-area gem presents an existing opportunity for an end user or investor. Room for pool and expansion. Call 631-766-8978 for more information.
