A 120-Year-Old Hamptons Home Hits the Market for $24.5 Million
A fully renovated Hamptons home built in 1900 has hit the market for $24.5 million.
The shingle-style abode in East Hampton, New York—a seasonal playground for well-heeled New Yorkers—was designed by architect Thomas Nash as part of the original summer colony in the area, according to the listing with Ed Petrie and James Petrie of Compass. The home is around the corner from the famed Lily Pond Lane and just a few blocks from Main Beach.
“Driving down Lee Avenue and Lily Pond Lane in East Hampton is a truly unparalleled experience,” James Petrie said in an email. “These two streets hold historical significance as the original summer colony estates, many of which continue to stand to this day.”
The approximately 10,000-square-foot home recently received a full makeover, and the layout was “reimagined with reverence to the home’s original character and to maximize an ideal indoor-outdoor lifestyle,” the listing said. The house’s mechanical systems were also updated and its original details were either restored or professionally replicated.
Casement windows, custom millwork, beamed ceilings and hand scraped herringbone floors can be found throughout, as can designer lighting and radiant-heat stone floors, the listing said.
The main floor features several living areas with French doors leading outside, a formal dining room and a bright white kitchen with two sinks and a sunlit breakfast nook. There’s also a butler’s pantry with yet another sink, this one next to a window looking out onto the grounds.
There are eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms, plus three powder rooms. The main suite offers a paneled study with a fireplace, a private balcony, two walk-in closets and two bathrooms, one with a steam shower, freestanding tub and a fireplace.
A media room and a recreation area can be found on the lower level, as well as a gym with a sauna and a wine room, according to the listing.
Outside, the home is surrounded by bluestone and brick terraces with a built-in fire pit, an outdoor kitchen, a pergola and a pool and spa, plus a pool house with outdoor showers. The single-acre property also includes manicured grounds and mature specimen trees.
The home last traded in 2011 for $6 million, according to records with PropertyShark. The seller was not available for comment.
