Opportunities to buy a beautiful home in the Hamptons are plentiful, but finding a home that offers everything you’re looking for wrapped into one existing structure, is rare. And reasonably-priced family homes don’t seem to come onto the market as often as high-end showpieces, so when a real “hidden gem” comes on the market, there is no time to hesitate.
Each town or hamlet on eastern Long Island offers its unique charms, beauty and character, but Southampton is always at the top of the list.
In fact, Southampton remains one of the most sought-after addresses in the country. Founded in 1640 and named after Southampton in Hampshire, England, this village is one of the oldest and most historic places in the world. Known for its local charm, world class golf courses like the Shinnecock Hills Golf Club (built in 1892) and the illustrious Sebonack Golf Club (built in 2006; set to host the U.S. Women’s Open next year), as well as its pristine beaches, the nearby Parrish Art Museum, historic homes, local college and tall privet hedges, Southampton is in a class all its own.
One of the recent listings to come on the market is a 2,200-square-foot home located on North Sea Mecox Road in Southampton. This turnkey home needs nothing more than the perfect family to move in. Built in 1998 and currently occupied by its original owner, this family home has been meticulously maintained.
Ellen Lauinger, Senior Associate and Licensed Real Estate Agent for the Corcoran Group in Southampton (Corcoran.com) is well acquainted with the property.
“This beautifully custom-built Post Modern home offers a terrific layout with three bedrooms and 2.5 baths including a fabulous first-floor master bedroom and en suite master bathroom. There are so many attributes to this charming property, and it offers many possibilities for the right buyer.”
Starting with a lovely open design living room space with fireplace, French doors and beautiful wood flooring throughout, the layout is perfect for holiday gatherings and family parties, as it connects to a formal dining room offering even more space for comfortable entertaining.
The kitchen includes superior appliances, hand-crafted wooden cabinetry and a generous working area. For less formal gatherings, the family can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner in the kitchen dining space which is bright, cozy and surrounded by full-length windows overlooking the home’s lush backyard, reminiscent of an English country garden.
Each of the two bedrooms on the second floor is sizeable, offering generous closet space. In addition, there is a large storage area on the second floor that could be converted to a playroom or office.
The property also boasts a grand room and bath located over its two-car garage—a perfect space for out-of-town guests, an office or art studio. This amenity is completely private and has its own entrance.
Additional attributes include a full basement (with nine-foot ceilings), vinyl siding, OHW heat, low taxes, pristine landscaping, a backyard that can accommodate a pool as large as 20 x 40 and a great location (less than five minutes from the Village of Southampton), as well as a wonderful school district.
The design of this charming home provides the perfect combination of privacy, character and practicality.
“It was the perfect place to raise our family and we enjoyed so many wonderful years here,” said the homeowner.
