One of three original homes on Westmoreland Farm, Vice President Roosevelt and President McKinley were guests here in 1898.

Enjoy a quiet view of West Neck Bay from the deep water dock built off of the peninsula where this home sits. Price: $2,900,000

It doesn't get more scenic than this -- nearly three and a half acres of lush rolling hills crossed by the North Willow Creek.
