Set apart by established gardens, mature trees, and high hedges, the inviting white entry gates sweep one in as if to announce “you are entering a very special place”. Preeminent broker Tim Davis, Licensed RE Broker for The Corcoran Group Real Estate and a lifelong resident of the Hamptons, presents this 6,320 square foot, three-story estate on two acres with the flourish that it deserves.
Begin by soaking in the beauty of not only the lay of the land, but one also gets the keen sense that the Atlantic Ocean is quite nearby and within walking distance. An estate like this one with a sophisticated palette is the talk of the town, and speaking of towns: the village center streets of Jobs Lane and Main Street are also within walking distance boasting myriad elegant boutiques, gourmet and casual eateries, museums, and a robust nightlife on Main Street. As you’d expect from New York’s oldest community, Southampton has a storied history. Old world colonial charm on every street corner is combined with the beauty of fine sand beaches making it one of the most desirable places to live in America and a destination for the world.
The home consists of 9 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms along with guest quarters, and a party barn/game room boasting an additional full bath and kitchenette. Formal dining in the main house with an eat-in-kitchen and fireplaces in many rooms create a cozy, warm ambiance. An office and bonus room all done in a floor-plan ideal for entertaining, working, and having fun in will find you with all the creature comforts you are looking for in all four seasons.
“This estate feels like the ‘old’ Southampton, but with fully reconstructed features added to the original 1890s structure to segue it into today’s high standards,” explains the intrepid agent. “The land is absolutely beautiful and its many amenities are away from the house, allowing for privacy and quiet. It is positioned perfectly for every sort of activity, be it swimming, tennis, or getting together for a party – formal or informal.” The front porch and back covered terraces are reminiscent of the glorious days of Hamptons summers spent lounging on broad wicker chairs reading, relaxing; being lulled into a nap by the scent of roses in full bloom – at ease and comfortable – opulent without being pompous - in a place called home… and still having the continuity to its past.
The essence of this estate has the power to heal whatever ails as you and as the proverb says: home is where the heart is. This home will surely be the place for which you feel the deepest affection, no matter where you are. Moment after moment, explore every inch of this property - inside and out. The exquisitely kept up home will find you never wanting to leave. The bonus points are more than can be counted: beauty, charm, comfort, spacious, graceful – check them all off your list and stay love-struck living in the heart of Southampton.
