New to the market in a co-exclusive is this 1860 home with thoroughly modern updates in Southampton Village. The 4,000-square-foot Colonial home has been updated resort-style, and offers a fully contained, self-sufficient setting for families and full-time or weekend living.
“You don’t have to leave this property at all if you don’t want to,” says Bryan Fedner, co founder/CEO at Marquis New York, a co-broker, along with Jordan Flerx, in the sale with Ed Bruehl and William Schumann from Saunders. “It has been beautifully enriched with gardens and the shaded seating area offers gorgeous setting and a ton of privacy.”
The home underwent a cosmetic remodel in 2021: a kitchen rehab with new countertops, backsplash and hardware; new lighting and flooring throughout, as well as curtains and blinds. All six bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, which have new tiling and fixtures. The exterior was also refreshed with new landscaping and outdoor lighting.
At nearly 600 square feet, the living room offers two adjacent areas for relaxing and gathering—one anchored by a wood-burning fireplace and a wall of custom built-in shelves, the other currently used for home entertainment. A large archway leads to the dining room with a unique brick-laid floor and multi-paned windows.
The 215-square-foot kitchen is just beyond, with exposed ceiling beams, stainless-steel appliances, including a Garland commercial-grade stove, LG refrigerator and KitchenAid dishwasher; generous and ample work/prep space with quartz countertops and a center island. The cabinets are on-trend in color and with brass hardware. A built-in bar opens into the living room for entertaining. Just beyond the kitchen is a 134-square-foot sunroom overlooking the back yard, and that opens to 100-square-foot deck.
The other prevailing feature of the first floor is a large primary ensuite bedroom of two adjoining rooms, one for sleeping and the other used as a sitting area, totaling nearly 310 square feet. The suite is completed by three closets—one of which is a large walk in—and its own 242-square-foot deck.
The second floor is devoted to five ensuite bedrooms around the center hallway, ranging in size from 127 to 265 square feet. One of the rooms features the original wooden wall-to-wall beams, typical of those found in century-plus-old homes. Access to the attic is via a pull down ladder, but with seven-foot ceilings, Fedner says adding a staircase enhances the potential to reimagine the space.
“This is a quintessential Colonial home bursting with historic charm and timeless architectural elements,” he said.”
Outside, the grounds include a pergola-covered deck and stone patio for dining, overlooking an English-style garden filled with roses and other perennials, along with mature flowering shrubs and ornamental grasses. Mature green giant arborvitaes offer a privacy hedge. There is a wood-burning fire pit and one poolside that’s gas powered. The unheated lined pool is 20 x 40 feet and is centered in a laid-brick patio. Fedner says there’s room to construct a small poolhouse. There is no garage on site, but the driveway accommodates 10 cars, with ample street parking nearby.
The home is .3 miles from the Southampton Long Island Railroad station, and .8 miles from the village, which Fedner calls “a mix of new and old, historic and modern, business and beach.” He noted though the village center is home to boutiques, restaurants and is adjacent to “some of the most expensive real estate on the South Fork,” just minutes away is the Shinnecock Indian Reservation, one of the oldest self-governing tribes in the State of New York. The local Shinnecock Nation maintains its cultural roots here and the public can visit the cultural center and museum, as well as exhibits and classes at the BIPOC-focused art haven, Ma’s House, run by renowned indigenous artist Jeremy Dennis. Agawam Lake and park are a mile from the home, Gin Beach is two miles, with Little Plains and Cryer beaches nearby.
