A spacious new construction in the heart of the village evokes historic Southampton cottage charm and craftsman details on a spacious lot.


The nuts and bolts

7 bedrooms

7 bathrooms

.85 acres

7,570 square feet

House proud

Built in 2023, this spacious and gracious home harkens back to the classic Hamptons cottage architecture and has been outfitted with every modern convenience. It was entirely custom built with impeccable details such as carved bannisters, custom molding, finishes and build-ins; and multi-paned windows. The exterior has been lushly planted with flowering shrubs 

What’s the plan?

The home is entered through a covered porch, which leads into a large entry foyer nearly 21 feet long, with a fireplace. To the right is a 300-square-foot living room, which connects to a study that has its own bathroom and porch. Left of the foyer are a half bath, reading nook and two mudrooms. The foyer leads to a 13-foot-long pantry that offers access to both the 244-square-foot kitchen and, at the back of the house, a nearly 600-square-foot great room with a fireplace and access to the back porch.

The second level features three ensuite bedrooms, a lounge area and a primary suite with a 254-square-foot bedroom, a balcony, two walk-closets and large bathroom with separate areas for the shower and commode. The finished lower level offers an additional living room with a fireplace and wet bar, wine cellar, recreation and exercise space, and two ensuite bedrooms.

“The owner wanted to emulate the classic village home while creating something very bright and updated,” says Paulina Keszler, the Douglas Elliman agent who is co-listing the property with Michaela Keszler. 

What’s cooking?

The large kitchen offers generous marble-topped counter space, glass-paned upper cabinets, a center island that seats two, and wood-beamed ceilings and hardwood floors. The appliance brands include Miele, Sub-Zero and Gaggenau, with double integrated wall ovens. Complementing the kitchen is a large pantry/prep kitchen with abundant storage, wooden counter/work space and wet bar. 

What else?

The home features double-height ceilings with floor-to-ceiling windows, details such wainscoting, ceiling beams, gracious doorway arches and custom molding. Each bathroom has been appointed with bespoke wallpaper. 

Amenities and more

  • In-ground 20 x 50 gunite pool
  • Pool house with a wet bar, kitchenette and bathroom
  • 8 x 8 hot tub spa
  • Three wood-burning fireplaces 

One cool thing (or two) 

The large finished basement is currently set up with a gym, and a golf-simulator room, which Keszler says can be adapted for other use, such as a projection/media room/home theater. 


Agent’s callout 

“It’s so thoughtful and incredibly well executed with details you can lose in newer homes. This has all the old charm in a new house,” Keszler says, adding that the home’s setting amongst wide, tree-lined streets adds to the picturesque, homey small-town feeling. 

Location, location, location

Sited in the village of Southampton, the home is close to dining, shopping and amenities. It is 1.2 mile to Agawam Lake and less than a mile to Little Plains Beach, one mile to Wyandanch Beach and 1.5 miles to Cryder Beach. The Ruth Wales du Pont Sanctuary, a Nature Conservancy salt marsh, is less than three miles from the house. 



The home at 134 Herrick Road lists for $21,950,000 and the details can be seen here.
