One of the last agricultural pieces of properties in East Hampton Village is on the market for the first time in more than 300 years.

The Gardiner Home Lot, a 3.7-acre parcel at 36 James Lane, is listed for $12.95 million, The New York Times reported. The property, which has frontage on Maidstone Lane and is across from Town Pond, has two houses on it. Gardiner Windmill, next door, was deed to the Village of East Hampton and restored in 1996.

Two of the acres are deeded for agricultural/scenic use — the only agricultural property left in the district, according to The Times.

Originally claimed by Lion G. Gardiner in 1648, the homestead has remained in the Gardiner family, currently owned by Olney Mairs (Bill) Gardiner, a former East Hampton Town Republican Committee leader. The five-bedroom, 3-bath front house dates back to the 1700s, and the other house was used as a garage and staff quarters.

Douglas Elliman broker Brian Buckhout and salesperson Tyler Mattson have the listing.
