Originally built for the Ford family, Jule Pond's 42 acres comprise the largest ocean frontage in the Hamptons. The Southampton property recently hit the market with Bespoke Real Estate for $175 million, making it the most expensive house for sale in New York (that's still half the price of the most expensive house in America). Scroll down for a look inside.

The property spans nearly a quarter mile along the Atlantic Ocean.

It abuts protected and preserved land to the southeast along Mecox Bay, which in effect adds another quarter-mile of ocean frontage.

The main house is 20,000 square feet.


It has 12 bedrooms and bathrooms.

The main house is "balanced across three principal wings."


One contains a 48-foot-long living room.

The current owner did an extensive renovation in 2008.

Brenda Earl, a former partner at equity fund Zweig-Dimenna, reportedly purchased the property at 90 Jule Pond Drive in 2002. (It was known as "Fordune" at the time.)

Built in 1960, the house still has original details like molded ceilings and Italian marble fireplaces.

In addition to spaces for entertaining outdoors, there are basketball and tennis courts.


A carriage house adds another three bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms to the estate.
