The Hamptons real estate market right now is just like Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812: cutting! Slashing! Prices falling faster than the battle of Smolensk! Asks retreating like the Grande Armée!
Wait, where were we? Right. This appealing 3.8 acre property is on Burnett’s Creek (right off Mecox Bay). The asking price has recently been slashed to $20 million, down from $25.9 million, quite a jump. We think you get a lot for your 20 large. Check it out:
That’s pretty swell, actually. As are each building in the compound. We’re a little annoyed that there are no interior shots of the main house, but given this place belongs to well known (and tasteful) jewelry designer Joan Hornig, we’re sure they’re attractive.
The main house is 7200 square feet, with 5 bedrooms and 7.5 baths. In the kitchen, “reclaimed hexagonal ceramic tile was imported from a French pub.” The pool house boasts a second-floor studio with a screened in dining room, kitchenette, barbeque, and an additional two-car garage.
The barn would be great for parties. It was rebuilt in 2012 from the original barn on the property, located in the same spot. There’s a full kitchen here too with a La Cornue stove, a custom sound system, and a conservatory imported from England.
There are also two guest cottages, both with living rooms with fireplaces, full kitchens, dining rooms, two bedrooms each, and two full bathrooms. The two-story cottage also sports a half bath and a screened-in porch.
Still not enough? The landscaping was beautifully done by Ed Hollander. The plantings are lovely, and there’s even an apple cider orchard that surrounds the tennis court.
Oh, did we mention the two docks for your water toys? If interested, contact the folks at Bespoke, who listed the estate. We bet even Napoleon Bonaparte would enjoy summering here.
