48 Halsey Lane, Water Mill, New York
Located south of the highway within the heart of the Hamptons, the stunning resort community, Water Mill, is a place of incredible beauty. Its beautiful beaches and pristine country roads are blessed with mega-mansions, historic estates, and some of the best architectural gems on the East Coast. Its history dates back to the 1700s as a Southampton grain gristmill location for the new settlers. Ever since, celebrities, barons, entrepreneurs, and mega moguls have flocked to the prized locale to spend their cherished summers lounging amidst its gorgeous setting. Situated in the middle of it all, behind the hedges, a distinguished estate captures the true essence of Hamptons living. Tim Davis, lifelong Hamptons-resident and Number One Broker with Corcoran Group Real Estate said it best, “Not only is this home arguably perfect, but it is a quintessential classic Hamptons shingle style slice of perfection.”
Make the theatrical journey through custom gates, pass the majestic boxwood courtyard, and arrive at the grand entrance of the elegant three-level shingle style 12,000 square foot residence. “The grand entry foyer with a 30- foot ceiling leads one to beautifully appointed rooms with interior architectural design by Ferguson and Shamamian AIA, executed to utmost quality by master craftsmen of Wright and Company, and interior design by Brian J. McCarthy,” pointed out Tim Davis. “The views to the symmetrical rear of the house, pool, and landscaping are stunning.”
The first floor sets the stage for year-round entertaining with spacious, well-appointed spaces. Exquisite architectural details adorned the glamorous paneled library and formal dining rooms. Flow effortlessly into the sitting and living rooms where the windows and doors provide expansive vistas across the meticulously kept grounds. French doors offer direct access to the covered porch, terraces, sparkling, oversized Gunite pool, pool house, and award-winning English-style gardens. A gracefully proportioned chef ’s kitchen is enhanced with decorative ceiling, massive island, high-end appliances, bespoke cabinetry, preparation areas, pantry, and casual breakfast area.
Choose between the grand staircase or elevator and retreat to your sublime quarters on the upper level. The split-plan affords the Master Wing its much-deserved privacy. With a combination of an elegant master bedroom with commanding fireplace, adjoining sitting area, walk-in closets, serene bath, and three balconies overlooking the gardens, one can consider this wing a sanctuary inside a sanctuary. On the other side, three generous en-suite bedrooms complete the floor.
The scale of the property offers plenty of opportunities to gather or for finding a quiet spot. The designer-finished, lower level is a spectacular entertainment area. Complement and fine-tune your exercise regimen in the lower-level fitness area with adjoining hot and wet saunas. The game room is an ideal choice for a round of foosball or ping-pong. Wine connoisseurs will appreciate the custom temperature-controlled wine cellar. Family movie night is simple, with a spacious sitting area and wet bar. The two additional guest suites on this level, provide extra private space for family, friends, or staff.
48 Halsey Lane sets the bar for timeless, luxury living. “A truly remarkable location for a sensational estate home,” concludes Davis. “A rare find indeed.”
