A home in the Southampton estate section has hit the market for $12.5 million with Angela Boyer-Stump of Sotheby’s International Realty.
Behind a gated entrance and privet hedges are a 7,000-square-foot, luxurious main home, a pool house and a south-facing heated saltwater gunite pool. “The timeless classic design of this home is accented by beautiful new white oak stained hardwood flooring throughout, three fireplaces, elegant marble finishes and custom details,” the listing description says.
The house, in the heart of the village, begins with a double-height foyer that leads to several living areas with plenty of entertaining space and natural light. The first floor holds a formal library/office with “old-world,” built-in bookshelves and a sitting area, a formal living room with wood burning fireplace, a dining area, and a lounge/media room complete with a 75-foot television, according to the listing description.
As for the gourmet, eat-in kitchen, there are Thermador appliances, two dishwashers, a wine cooler and a professional range. Nearby is an all-season room with a radiant heated bluestone floor.
There is a mud room with a fireplace, a laundry room, a powder room and an attached two-car garage.
Take the dramatic staircase or the elevator to reach the second floor, where there are six bedrooms. The primary bedroom features a sitting area, two large walk-in closets and even a luggage storage area, in addition to a spa-like marble bathroom. Down the hall is a junior primary suite, which offers an attached study/lounge area that the agent says could easily be transformed into another bedroom.
Four more, “generously sized bedrooms with en suite baths and walk-in closets” can also be found on the second floor. The first guest room is “a bunk room” that holds three twin beds and has ample room to sleep more or to host a game area. The second bedroom provides a private lounge deck overlooking the lawn. The third bedroom offers plenty of natural light and looks out over the front lawn, while the last guest room “offers privacy and tranquil views to the pool area.”
The 54-by-18-foot heated, saltwater gunite pool features a sitting ledge, bluestone coping and a bluestone patio that goes from the pool lounge area into the custom-designed pool house, where there is a substantial sitting room, two separate changing rooms, a kitchenette, a full bath and an outdoor shower.
Sonos systems, controlled by an iPad, are available both indoors and outdoors with additional speakers in the porch ceiling and pool area.
You can be jamming out to music by summer.
