92 Coopers Neck Lane, Southampton, New York, United States, 11968
Welcome to one of the most elegant properties in the heart of Southampton’s coveted estate section. It’s called Mon Repo and comes rich in both history and beauty. The 12,000 square foot summer home first listed in 2015 for $37.5 million. It was last on the market in 2018 for $29.5 million and was recently reduced to $23.5 million. It was built in 1898 for Judge Alonzo Monson and remained in the family until 1904 when it was sold to the Carnegie family. The Carnegie family owned the estate until 1932. The current owners purchased the property in 1994 and worked with a renowned interior design to bring the property to what we see today. The renovation unified spaces, opened up hallways and staircases and installed completely new plumbing, electricity, heating, multi-zoned air conditioning, new water heaters and boiler as well as a new security system. Extensive reconstruction and additions to the three-story house resulted in a stunning new kitchen, six added new bedrooms and several covered terraces. Occupying 4.6 acres of flat land, the estate includes the shingled 1898 Dutch Colonial residence as well as the original barn built by Judge Alonzo Monson for his prized racehorses. The barn structure has been reconfigured into a spectacular great room with exposed beams and numerous French doors, opening all sides to the gardens, pool, lawns and tennis court. The main house extends more than 12,000 square feet with twenty-five rooms, eleven fireplaces, eleven bedrooms, twelve full and three half bathrooms. Perfect proportions and detailed mouldings unfold throughout the home. The Palladian entrance opens to a grand central hall with columned fireplace. An open breakfast room with wood burning fireplace is the central hub between the entrance hall, library, and 34′ living room while French doors open to a raised terrace surrounded by gardens with steps down to the pool. The magnificent living room sits beneath a barrel vault ceiling; angled south to catch year-round light, the room is filled with sunshine with three sides of windows. A large double-columned fireplace anchors the room, while custom French doors open to the breezeway and onto the barn. Mon Repos is on the market for $23.5 million with Tim Davis of The Corcoran Group. Annual property taxes are estimated at $79,043.
