Modern Sophistication in Southampton
The lauded architectural firm of Sawyer | Berson is recognized for inspiring designs that allow a home to blend gracefully with its surroundings.
This oasis just a block from the beach in Southampton is no exception: behind a white-shingle-clad façade that fits right in with the classic coastal location are airy interiors replete with a breezy sophisticated style and understated refinement.
The generous 6,800-square-foot getaway plays host to an array of thoughtfully designed living spaces—including a family room affectionately known as the “snug room,” a living room that epitomizes relaxed elegance, and a sun-filled eat-in kitchen with an island—as well as seven restful bedrooms.
Soaring ceilings and banks of windows and glass doors create a sense of airiness and make the most of the Hampton’s famed natural light, while details such as wide-plank white-oak floors, Moroccan Tadelakt plaster, and intriguingly textured grass cloth wall coverings reinforce the connection with the serene setting.
Each of the home’s carefully conceived rooms enjoys a view of the distinctive Hamptons landscape and of the glorious one-acre grounds, which include colorful flower and herb gardens, mature boxwoods and privets, and chic crushed oyster shell pathways meandering through it all.
With the addition of a 36-foot teak table, an allée of linden trees is transformed into an impressive spot for alfresco dining.
An outdoor living room with a fireplace overlooks a 67-foot gunite pool and its enveloping limestone terrace.
