Sotheby's International Realty - Southampton, NY

Regarded by many as the finest oceanfront in all of the Hamptons, this iconic estate with links to architect Stanford White offers two extraordinary residences on almost four acres, with over 405 +/- ft. of bulkhead beach front, gorgeous hedged lawns, two custom Gunite pools, and sunken all-weather tennis on Gin Lane. Security gates and hedging open to a wide gravel drive, with the main four-story residence rising majestically from its front parking court. Constructed in the early 1900s, the classic shingle-sided presides over rosa rugosa dunes that slope down to the wide sandy beach. The gathering rooms across the second level open across a series of decks and patios that all take in ocean breezes, and from which one can watch the ceaseless waves. The second, wholly separate residence, was built to reflect the design and proportions of the main house. Both homes are designed similarly, from dark polished wood floors, to white interiors with detailed moldings (original in the main house), bead boards, French doors, transom windows, and coffered ceilings. Ample parking, and separate staff areas.
