Where the sea meets the sky and the bay glistens at sunset – The perfect oceanfront escape in the Hamptons.
“WATERVIEW”: the name of the home itself says it all. Located along the exclusive Meadow Lane in one of the most sought after areas in famed Southampton, this classic sunfilled oceanfront home’s expansive living areas and enviable views make it the perfect family sanctuary. Initially designed by Hamptons based architectural firm Suter & Suter for a prominent family, this sprawling estate on 4.25 acres awaits new owners to enjoy the best of Hamptons living.
A private gated driveway meandering past lush grounds leads you to a commanding beach retreat with the space and list of amenities to please the most discerning families. The sprawling 6,000 square foot estate with an additional 3,000 square feet of outdoor living space, tennis court, swimming pool, and more make imagine leaving hard to do. Inside, the impeccably appointed, sophisticated yet functional design throughout the five-bedroom, five and a half bath home is perfectly complemented by the unrivaled views. “One of the truly amazing features of the home is the unique architecture with two octagonal living spaces facing each other. This allows one to view the gentle, low rolling sand dunes that open up to wide- open views of the ocean from any angle,” explained Tim Davis, Licensed real estate Broker for Corcoran Group Real Estate.
On the second level, the heart of the residence is the spacious octagon-shaped great room with a dome skylight ceiling which perfectly floods the room with light during the day and captures the twinkling stars at night. “There is distinct ‘gleam and shine’ to this level – as if the water is reflected off the sand and permeates the interior entirely with natural light,” comments Mr. Davis. True indeed, as on this level, the equally large dining room, office with fireplace, and east wing master retreat share similar architectural details. The discreetly appointed chef’s kitchen, off of the dining room, outfitted with state-of-the-art features, is a chef’s delight. Enjoy the fantastic views from inside or out on one of three decks (one covered for those occasional rainy days) that complete this level.
A gracious stairway and elegant hallways lead you to the first floor, where an additional four bedrooms and four baths with views of covered decks and porches that are accessible to outdoor recreational spaces. Another flight down, you’ll find a generous two-car garage, mudroom, wine room, and storage space. And in the event you are seeking more space, the property has been recently approved for additional usable living spaces.
Quiet contemplation, as well as activities such as water sports, are mere steps away. Should you want to venture out for a Sunday drive, the surrounding area of Southampton village offers many museums and historic venues, day trips to vineyards, cultural activities, fine dining, and nightlife. When you live in a superb abode like this, the choices are endless; relish the idea of doing loads of entertaining, relaxing, and dreaming by the fireplaces, or drifting off into a superb summer nap under the stars.
Inhale the virtual salt air, and imagine the bright blue skies and water surrounding this place. This home is for the extraordinary individual, whose discriminating tastes lean toward perfection – such as reflected in this unmatched quality Meadow Lane estate that some have called a melding of Hollywood glamour with Hampton’s elegance.
