$28,000,000 | Built 2003 | 16,700 Sq. Ft. | 8 Beds | 13 Baths | 6 Acres
A custom 16,700 square foot residence set on six acres in the Fordune section of Southampton has been reduced to $28 million. This comes just seven months after the sprawling estate hit the market for $37 million. Property records suggest the six acre parcel was purchased in 1997 for $660,000, however, we have serious doubts that six acres in Southampton would have sold for that little – even in 1997! The property was developed in 2002 with the creation of the 16,700 square foot main house, designed by architect John Laffey and built by Charles Rich Design, within a magical park-like setting. There are hundreds of specimen evergreen and flowering trees, perennial gardens, a scenic pond and an allée of Sycamore trees. The eight bed, thirteen bath residence features some impressive amenities such as a gas hot air and central air conditioning system with 26 zones, a sound system with 27 audio zones including outdoor entertaining areas, an AV control room, heated outdoor 55-foot x 30-foot gunite pool with spa and a third floor artist’s studio with deck offering 360-degree views. Our favourite room in the residence has to be the conservatory-style dining room! It’s on the market for $28 million with Douglas Elliman.
