Sophisticated Hamptons Escape
Just north of the Atlantic Ocean frontage in Southampton Village—widely considered one of the country’s most prestigious resort communities—the town’s estate section is popular with influential residents and visitors alike, whose homes are often recognized for their history, architectural pedigree, and lavish appointments.
Beyond privacy gates and at the end of a tree-lined drive, this alluring 1.84-acre estate fits right in, exemplifying the classical elegance and contemporary sophistication of the Hamptons.
The home’s tranquil tree-shaded motor court, traditional silhouette, and columned façade belie its sleek, chic contemporary interiors and plentiful modern finishes.
Offering roughly 7,500 square feet, it feels purposefully designed for luxurious living and stylish entertaining on a grand scale.
Living room ceilings soar to remarkable, airy heights.
Reclaimed wood beams and accents add Old World character and warmth, while towering arched windows admit glorious light and views of the emerald surroundings.
In the refined dining room, French doors open to the patio and grounds.
Flooded with light from above, the entirely new chef’s kitchen has clean, crisp lines and offers top-of-the-line appliances, an oversized island, and a sun-drenched breakfast area enveloped by windows.
The home’s generous seven bedroom suites include an upper-level master sanctuary with a warming fireplace, a sitting nook, and a secluded balcony; two restful bedrooms on the main floor; and one independent retreat with a private entrance, thoughtfully affording guests the ability to come and go at their leisure.
Much at this estate, though, is about appreciation of the park-like grounds. The expansive swath of lawn encourages relaxed recreation and gazing out across the breezy greenery.
A grand covered alfresco dining area and an open-air patio adjoin the living and dining rooms, offering a perfect spot for outdoor entertaining and festivities.
Punctuating the beautifully manicured lawn are a heated gunite swimming pool and a Har-Tru tennis court—precisely the elements needed for living the Hamptons lifestyle to its fullest.
