Can one put a price on the heavenly sound of ocean waves in a bedroom at night? Well, yes one can, and in this case the price is $16 million.
Along with the nightly oceanic lullaby, the eight-figure price tag includes a spacious, five-year-old house and 1.1 acres of land, along with a pool and pool house. Designed by architect Boris Baranovich, the gorgeous traditional spans roughly 10,000 square feet with nine bedrooms and ten bathrooms. And unlike some of the older summer colony homes in Southampton, this one requires no work whatsoever. On coveted Halsey Neck Lane, the estate is also within easy walking distance of beautiful Halsey Neck ocean beach. The property is listed by Tim Davis and Thomas P. Davis at Corcoran, and Evan R. Kulman and Susan Harrison at Compass.
Despite the youth of the house, it is surrounded by mature landscaping, ensuring beauty and privacy. Summer entertaining is made simple with indoor and outdoor spaces that flow well into one another and besides the pool and pool house, the grounds boast covered verandas and extensive stone terraces.
The main level is perfect for entertaining, with full-height doors that open to the patios. Along with a double-height foyer, elegantly appointed formal living and dining rooms, a library, an eat-in kitchen, a roomy butler’s pantry, and a casual dining room. Perfect for older houseguests, two of the guest suites are on the ground floor, while the second-floor primary suite includes a fireplace, dressing room and terrace overlooking the south garden.
The finished lower level, about 3,900 square feet, offers staff areas, a full bathroom and laundry room, a billiards room, a media room, and some additional bonus rooms. Still not enough space? There is a 3,000 square foot third floor — a rare feature in a Southampton village home — that’s wired and plumbed and ready to be finished into a screening room, yoga studio, bunk room for kids, or art studio.
Just remember to relax and take in the ambient sounds of the ocean every night because they cost a lot of money.
