With a Meadow Lane address on Southampton’s highly coveted Billionaire’s row, this impressive beachside estate sets a standard by which others surely should be judged. This vast, elegant, and thoroughly time-honored Hamptons village estate seamlessly incorporates what any mogul could wish and more for in a beach house. Simply put, it is easily the most beautiful and compelling oceanfront property available for sale in the Hamptons today.
“The home is constructed on three levels and was curated by Steven Gambrel, preeminent international Hamptons based design firm,” explains the distinguished, Tim Davis, Licensed Real Estate Broker for Corcoran Group Real Estate. "He is known for creating interiors that are 'simultaneously familiar and yet unexpected,’ that is depicted here by the thoughtful, most elegant interiors that incorporate the personal comfort of the home’s occupants and provides privacy at the same time. Sun-filled, light and bright, the hues of the interiors reflect the serene grays, whites, and pastel tones that give the beachside estate such a spacious, yet gracious feel.
A sense of peaceful seclusion immediately envelops you as you enter the enchanting property. The vast well-appointed interiors of the first level open onto expansive patios with amazing views across the dramatic pool and spa, manicured grounds, and the magnificent ocean. The home’s positioning allows you to enjoy unobstructed views of the sea as well as the bay.
The stained polished wood floors welcome one and all into a great room, formal dining room, and family room, all with their own fireplaces. Stone counters and state-of-the-art appliances adorn the kitchen ready for the most persnickety of chefs. On the same level, an expansive ocean-facing guest bedroom suite is anchored to another facing the blue bay.
An elegant spiral stairway - or an elevator if you wish to use it - leads to the heavenly second level that invites one to a superb west facing master bedroom wing that one could simply stay in all day. A fireplace and oceanside deck, walk-in closets, and a gleaming marble bath engulf your senses. The east wing finds three guest suites – each elegant and large and designed to perfection - along with an out-of-sight laundry room that is convenient for housekeeping purposes. Its second floor is simply a pleaser of a level that becomes nearly legendary for its superb comfort. Guests and family will enjoy and appreciate the privacy afforded to them as there is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy
The beachfront lower level is full of wondrous features such as a media recreation room, gym, three full baths, a wine cellar, additional laundry facilities, and a wet bar. Slip into exercise garments for a solid workout, followed by any number of games to keep young and old occupied or stretch back to see a favorite film with guests. The adult beverage sipping and tasting also may begin in the grand wine cellar. For larger gatherings, everyone can linger in the expansive covered patio while grazing on appetizers or dinner, along with favorite libations serviced from the wet bar.
This residence offers so very much both inside and out - and its lay of the land includes a private wooden walkway that leads past glorious fora and fauna to approximately 200 feet of pristine ocean beach. To the north, a dedicated dock meets Shinnecock Bay and can display a variety of watercraft such as a kayak, canoe, sailboat, or yacht. “One of the more unique elements of living here is that the private dock is a definite rarity. Only a handful of properties in this area can meet this criteria,” explained Tim Davis.
Classic, comfortable, and clearly unique – These are the distinguishing characteristics of this pristine estate. Owning a beach house of this caliber would make leaving it very hard, but if you must, Southampton heliport is a mile away.
