Southampton Compound Opportunity
The fabled Art Village, on the western edge of Southampton Village, is the setting for this Artist Colony multi-structure compound including 5 legal dwellings. The property, steeped in history, has been artfully restored to showcase the old-world attributes seamlessly blended with contemporary living suiting a variety of lifestyle decorating choices while creating a bright and inviting atmosphere for today’s discerning buyer. Art Village began in 1891 as a campus of studios and dormitories for the art school which was funded by prominent NYC society members. When the school disbanded eleven years later the buildings were moved and renovated into private homes by several of the students. The compound affords six separate structures, consisting of a main house, three cottages, a ballroom and two-car garage, each of which is purposefully positioned across almost three acres of an expansive landscaped terrain. The organic grounds are home to three historic gardens with original brick stairs, stone walls, a parterre garden, mature garden of beech, evergreens, established crepe myrtles, maple trees and full of hydrangeas, wisteria, lilacs, roses and preserved by complete perimeter fencing. An unpretentious residence with historical elegance, this compound offers the ultimate in setting and location, just minutes to Southampton Village and town beaches. While undoubtedly a unique property in its artistic flair and commemorated heritage, this compound opportunity presents multiple scenarios for a purchaser. In its current state, it is tailored to match the needs of a generational compound with several separate dwellings and communal spaces yet plenty of intimate, private rooms to fit all one could desire in terms of entertaining and living. Importantly, there is an existing building envelope for both a pool and tennis court, as well as a legal subdivision option.
