    Historic Southampton Village With Pool

    Built in the heyday of 19th century Hamptons summer society with the sound of ocean waves from nearby, 1860s Federal-style mansion offers a rare opportunity to own a true piece of history. Rarely offered for sale, with only a handful of owners in the last hundred years, the residence has been meticulously renovated top to bottom, sparing no expense to update everything for 21st century living, even while recalling historic details from when the house was built originally. Some of these restored and remarkable details include the original lead glass windows, the stained hardwood floors, and the beautiful plastered walls. Encompassing three floors, with porte cochere, covered porches and verandas, the home offers twelve bedrooms and ten baths to accommodate a houseful of friends and guests. The gated and hedged property is known for its unmistakable façade on South Main Street in Southampton Village. Inside, original refurbished details include wainscoting, paneling, moldings, millwork, staircase banisters, coffered ceilings, floor grates, pocket doors, cabinetry, mantle pieces, and more. The extensive landscaping offers a groomed allee, seating areas around the pool and porches, an outdoor fireplace, built-in barbeque, and an exquisite sculpted garden. The home itself is known for its unique beauty from the Summer Colony period in Hamptons history, when Southampton was transformed from a rustic village into the world-famous resort we know today.
