Bencar Building


Bencar Building Corporation was established in 1994. President and Owner Tom Bennett is a master carpenter who has built and renovated numerous residential and commercial properties in Westchester, New York City and Long Island. The company name was formed by conflating “Bennett” and “Carey,” the maiden name of Tom’s wife and partner, Breda.


Bencar Building is committed to excellence. The company’s homes are designed with both comfort and aesthetics in mind and exemplify the finest in modern construction. Recent completed and sold projects include a classic, shingle-style gambrel home in the Southampton Village estate section, a 5,000+/- sq. ft. home close to the Southampton Village center, and a larger 6,000+/- sq. ft. home with pool and tennis permit, sited on property adjacent to a 70+/- acre reserve with panoramic farm views, and a gated estate on 12 secluded acres in Water Mill with a 6,000+/- sq. ft. home, pool and spa, tennis, basketball and pool house/tennis pavilion.


Bencar homes are distinguished by brilliant natural light flooding in from large windows, walls of French doors and clerestory windows. The rooms are spacious, with high, coffered ceilings and paneled walls, and incorporate detailed architectural millwork, fine finishes and high-end hardware. Exteriors express classic Hamptons cedar shingle vernacular and interiors feature clean, modern lines and state-of-the-art materials and fixtures.


Bencar is known for consistently fine craftsmanship, attention to detail and careful consideration of customers’ wishes, as well as for working closely with architects and local authorities. Tom is always happy to produce testimonials from past clients.
