Offered for the first time in years, this stately residence in Southampton's estate area is sited on almost two excellent acres with views across its 120 ft. +/- water frontage on Taylor Creek. The home and property have been featured on Southampton Historical Society tours. Approached from the pillared winding drive, mature plantings frame the front facade. There is a presence to this professionally-decorated home. Through the front door, the double-height entry and winding staircase looks straight ahead into the grand living room with fireplace that opens through through French doors to the outside dining patio with retractable awning, the brick-bordered, 20'x30' heated, Gunite swimming pool, and lovely lawn sloping gently down to the water. The home's main gallery with built-in bar, extends on one side to access the den with fireplace, a ground floor "bamboo room" guest bedroom suite, and the attached enclosed four-seasons sun room. The opposite side offers the formal dining room, the complete kitchen with all major appliances including two dishwashers, a morning room, and the side entrance with pantries, laundry and, half-bath. A staff bedroom suite is located off the kitchen. Up the main stair, the master suite occupies one side with fireplace, over-sized bathroom with dressing rooms, walk-in closet, and double vanities. Across the second floor landing, two more guest suites open to an outside deck. The full unfinished basement has ample storage and houses the mechanicals. Back outside, the driveway curves to the side service entrance and the separate two-car garage/pool house with sitting area and full bath.The aspect from the southernmost lawn looking back toward the home, the waterfront, and the entertaining patios is wonderfully inviting.
