Spectacular Southampton Oceanfront Mansion for $55 Million


This sprawling house was designed to make the most of the ocean, pond, and field views. The property was formerly owned by TV legend Roone Arledge, whose estate sold it in 2004 for $19 million to David Silfen, the former co-head of Goldman Sachs’s equities division, who himself passed away in 2015. The listing is an exclusive to Harald Grant at Sotheby’s.

$55 million, these days, doesn’t seem ridiculous for 4.5 acres of prime oceanfront, with plenty of privacy. The house is 7000 square feet with eight bedrooms and eight full/two half baths. There’s a generous sized gunite pool, 20 x 50 feet, but no pool house and no tennis court. We suppose tennis could be added, but it might spoil the view a bit.

The house is attractive and well kept but needs some updates, we think. One really lovely feature is the roof deck, which offers incredible 360 degree views.

What do you think? Will it sell at this price? Let us know in the comments.
