Classic Captain's Neck - Pool and Tennis
Occupying 1.3 +/- acres in Southampton's estate section, this classic English-style cedar shingled residence recalls a sense of refined country living from over a hundred years ago. Behind high hedges, the semi-circular gravel drive, that frames magnificent old-growth trees, leads up red brick steps to the white-columned covered entry. A welcoming foyer with staircase leads straight back to a sitting room with fireplace that retains original crown molding and built-in shelves and bookcases. The powder room bridges the access to the formal dining room and formal living rooms, both of which open through French doors out to the covered sun porch with bluestone flooring and bead board ceiling. The dine-in country-style kitchen offers rustic-style cabinetry, ample stone and marble cook spaces as well as top stainless steel appliances, all suitable for a professional chef. Upstairs, the main residence includes the master bedroom with over-sized marble bathroom, double closets and outdoor deck, plus three guest bedrooms and bathrooms. Back on the main floor, an all-weather laundry room includes a full pool bathroom that steps out onto the extensive, tiered, red brick entertaining patios. Beyond the brick-bordered, heated Gunite pool and spa, a vine-covered trellis creates a natural separation from the all-weather tennis court and pool house. The long back driveway extends to the three-car garage. Below the main residence, the full basement houses fully-modernized mechanical systems including telecommunications, security alarm, central air-conditioning, over nine temperature control zones, plus a wine storage room. From its many paned windows and doors, and outside patios, this property offers pristine landscaped beauty across sculpted gardens, and glorious shade trees.
