If amping up your entertaining lifestyle is in your New Year’s resolutions, then this fully loaded, seven bedroom home with a separate guest wing might be the fix.
Sited on a 2.3-acre lot in Remsenburg, this traditionally styled 6,500-square-foot home offers plenty of space for hosting guests inside and out. Covered porches, an extensive patio, pool and tennis court offer most everything you and your guests will need — all within the security and privacy of a gated estate.
“The home is down a long hedged driveway and opens up to an immaculate and expansive property. It’s opulent when you make it to the end of the drive,” says Ashley Farrell, who is co-listing the property with fellow Corcoran agent Lexie Schrage.
Built in 2002, the house has been updated and well-maintained, Farrell says. The first floor is dedicated to large common areas and features 10-foot ceilings that visually expand the space even more. The gracious entry way is flanked by a home office with French doors and a dining room of nearly equal size (about 289 square feet) with hallway access to a powder room and two closets, and ultimately leading to a large eat-in kitchen.
The combined square footage of the food-prep and dining areas is nearly 535 square feet. The custom cabinetry is topped with Quartz countertops and the appliance suite includes brands such as Viking (the six-burner range), Sub Zero and KitchenAid. But with conveniences such as double sinks and dishwashers, a butler’s pantry, two islands and direct access to a 540-square-foot three-season sunroom, this is truly a catering and entertainment-ready kitchen. The front-facing 318-square-foot formal dining room can be accessed through the pantry, in addition to the front foyer, and features coffered ceilings.
The living room and den are of nearly equal size at about 468 square feet, and are adjoined, offering easy flow from room to room, but also separate spaces for gathering around the wood-burning fireplace, the built in corner entertainment center or conversation in a more formal setting. The living room provides access to the sun room at the back. Back to the front of the house, the office features generous built-in shelves and work areas. The first level is completed by a 276-square-foot ensuite bedroom, and is accessed from a hallway from the kitchen leading to laundry room and a mudroom, which, in turn, leads into the three-car garage.
The second floor is dedicated to four bedrooms, with the primary suite comprising about one-third of the floor at 382 square feet plus a nearly 200-square foot bathroom with a steam shower and sunken tub; it features a wainscoting and a gas-fueled fireplace. The three other ensuite bedrooms range from 181 to 243 square feet. An additional loft-style office on the second-floor landing offers 194 square feet of built-in work space and shelving, and overlooks the front yard. The guest wing over the garage offers an additional 1,000 square feet with two large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living area and bonus room. There are hardwood floors throughout both levels.
The lower level of the house offers 2,000 square feet, 733 of which are set up as a recreational room and home theater space, a full bath, four closets and ample storage space. With ceilings of nearly 8 feet high and a full bath, Farrell says the space, while finished, also presents a clean slate for reimagining.
The house is set back on a long driveway, sited amid privacy hedges, year-round greenery and leafy mature trees. A separate screened gazebo overlooks the clay tennis court. The area around the 20×40-foot pool features brick paving and there’s a dedicated bathroom adjacent to the pool area with access into the garage.
“This house, in general, is a unicorn with its size, lot size, pool and tennis – it’s definitely special,” Farrell says, adding that the land originally housed horse stables many years back.
She calls Remsenburg, “A small town that provides more of a country feel: I lovingly call it Mayberry.” And, indeed, the Westhampton Chamber of Commerce describes the town’s Main Street as “lined with vintage historic homes fronted by continuous white picket fences, hedgerow and century old trees.”
Remsenburg is a hamlet of three square miles in the Township of Southampton, south of Montauk Highway and about four miles from Westhampton village. Nearby are the landmarked Remsenburg Academy & Art Gallery, Remsenburg Park, the Westhampton Yacht Squadron, founded in 1890 to promote and pass along a love of sailing through the generations; and Speonk Point, which juts into Moriches Bay. Residents of Remesenburg may obtain beach parking permits through the municipality of Westhampton Beach.
