12 BOYESEN ROAD
There is so much to be said about 12 Boyesen Road given its location and its proximity to the ocean.
Built in 1986 and renovated in 2011/2102, the six-bedroom Southampton Village estate has lived multiple lives, reinvented with expansive renovations as the years ticked by. Now, the updated manse is ready for its next evolution, listed for $9.75 million just two days before Labor Day with Tim Davis and Thomas Davis of The Corcoran Group.
The pristine Atlantic Ocean beach located at the end of Halsey Neck Lane is within walking distance to this home as is the heart of the storied village. The nearly 7,200-square-foot traditional is sitting on premium real estate — 1.52 acres planted with large trees, manicured hydrangeas and shrubbery, and an evergreen perimeter within the historic estate section of Southampton Village.
“It’s a well-known setting within the area, and people know it as being super prime,” according to licensed associate real estate broker Tim Davis. The home has a southern exposure therefore there is great light across the whole back of the house. The garden is bright and the pool area is sublime and the home is private from the street.”
One enters a private courtyard through the entry gates which provides access to the main front door and the service area of the house. Once inside, the entry hall leads to a formal living room and sitting room — each with its own fireplace — a dining room and large eat-in kitchen with French doors to the garden, an attached two-car garage, and a first floor en-suite bedroom and gym with access to the terrace.
“The principal spaces really flow nicely, and then they open up to a terrace that’s covered along the back of the house,” Mr. Davis said. “It’s ideal for shade covered lunches in the afternoon.”
Views of Taylor Creek and Shinnecock Bay are visible from the second-floor terrace that looks out over the backyard, lush landscape, a 28-foot-by- 38-foot heated pool and accessible via the master suite. The suite which includes two baths, a dressing room, sitting room and office as well as an additional bedroom.
Two additional en-suite bedrooms can be found in a separate wing accessible from its own staircase, Mr. Davis said, providing privacy for guests or a growing family.
“What’s nice about the bedroom spaces upstairs is you do have a sense of privacy as one wing that has two bedrooms off on its own, if that was important, and the other wing offers three bedrooms on another side of the house,” Mr. Davis said. “It lends itself to somebody with teenaged children, somebody with very young children, or couples that just want to be there with friends. If you’re an older couple, the en- suite bedroom on the first floor could easily be turned back into a master suite, and have your second floor as your guest suites. It offers ideal living for quite a broad audience”
The current owners are mostly summer residents as they have lived abroad for many years so opening the doors for Memorial Day weekend and closing them on Labor Day was their way of using this home, Mr. Davis said, though he sees its next stewards living there in a different way.
“This is definitely more of an all-seasons house,” he said. “I think it has a really nice beach feel to it — sunny, summer living — though it’s certainly a house that one would use year-round. But I think, in particular, it’s a house that lives so well during the season, with your access to the outdoor spaces, the light and the whole feeling to it.
