A New Home Off Of South Main Street With Luxury Details And Modern Features
Classic elegance and modern style were the guiding principles behind the construction of 60 Herrick Road in Southampton Village.
The $8.75 million estate was envisioned by Tim Davis of the Corcoran Group, one of the top real estate brokers in the country with an affinity to “selling the luxury market.” Working closely with Southampton-based architect Brian Brady of Brady Design, in this fine home Mr. Davis achieved his dream of blending top-of-the-line traditional craftsmanship with modern design flair.
The 6,500-square-foot new construction, located right in the heart of Southampton Village, rises above its peers as a celebration of the treasures of American architectural design. At first glance the seven-bedroom, 10-bath home looks as if it’s a typical grand estate in the traditional Federal-style. But soon thereafter, it’s clear that while the façade certainly looks completely at home in a village that was settled in 1640, the two-story manse is not quite what it appears.
Delightfully full of surprises of the very best variety, there’s far more to the appealing home than initially meets the eye. Notably, upon closer inspection, a distinctly modern twist begins to take shape. The design of the residence takes timeless style and marries it with neoteric elements in a way that not only makes sense, but also redefines the category of transitional architecture.
“Think fresh and new,” says Mr. Davis, who is also representing the property.
In designing the dwelling, the veteran broker used his extensive knowledge of the local real estate market in order to build exactly the type of house that buyers want today. Tapping into the continually growing demand for updated classic style and top-of-the-line construction paired with of-the-minute convenience and enhanced comforts; he was able to build something that exceeded even his own expectations.
Set back from the shady tree-lined street and shielded by 18-foot-tall arborvitae, the abode was constructed with valuable southern exposure in mind. The glass-filled home features 11-foot ceilings and extraordinary opportunities with which to view the vaunted Hamptons light.
Inside the well-appointed manse, highendmodern amenities abound. The showplace home is equipped with a state-of-the-art kitchen, en suite bedrooms, an exercise room, guest quarters, media room, play room, bonus room and finished basement. Additionally, there are five interior fireplaces and heated floors in select areas.
John Bjornen of Sag Harbor-based Bjornen Design and Peggy Fruin of Bridgehampton-based Hampton Design created the interior spaces to take advantage of the numerous natural gifts surrounding the residence. A light palette and high level finishes complete the modern aesthetic sensibility.
Outside, the half-acre parcel is positively perfect for entertaining and soaking up the sun. And the location—just steps from Main Street—is both sheltered and accessible, ideal for those who seek a bit of solace within the village setting.
“There’s nothing like it on the market when it comes to convenience, location and privacy,” says Mr. Davis. “It’s ideal.”
Spacious and sun loving, the generously portioned L-shaped abode boasts an expansive backyard. Home to a variety of established plantings and trees, the property also includes a private wraparound porch, an 18-foot-by-40-foot heated pool, guesthouse cabana, hidden waterfall spa, outdoor shower and fireplace entertaining area.
The totality of the house—from the architecture to the “dream team” of architects, builders and designers, to the location—make it a rare and special opportunity, says Mr. Davis.
“The combination of all of these elements is hard to come by,” says the seasoned real estate expert. “It makes for an irresistible property.”
