Year Purchased: 1984
About the owner: My family settled in the North Fork in 1949 and we have lived or vacationed here ever since. Once a land of potato farms, we have watched it evolve into vineyards and horse farms which have maintained the rural beauty of this area. Wisteria Court will always hold a special place in our hearts as we had our wedding reception there. Since then we have enjoyed introducing our children and friends to this special place.
Why the Owner Chose Jamesport: I purchased this from my parents who had owned the property since 1970 in order to keep it in our family. It has been the setting for numerous gatherings and vacations-- Christmas-tree trimming parties to Fourth of July BBQs.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House: This is truly a unique home, built by a candy manufacturer from Manhattan. Rumor has it that President John F. Kennedy stayed here in 1960. From when you see the green-tile roof and expansive wrap-around covered porch, to when you first climb the red-carpeted staircase, you will know that this is a home like no other.
