Located in the exclusive ocean-side Southampton enclave of Fordune stands an impressive 11,000 sq.ft. manor nestled in a park-like setting on 2.5 lush acres, now on the market for $11,900,000. The stately brick and stucco estate, with interiors by the award-winning NYC based design team of Angel Sanchez & Christopher Coleman, is a delightful retreat in the Hamptons where spacious rooms flow seamlessly into each other and pops of color delight the senses.
A tree-lined street conveys you to stately wrought-iron gates that open to reveal an intricately patterned block driveway and car park at the entrance and continues around the house to the 4-car garage. An impressive carved front door opens to a dramatic double height foyer and leads to a formal living room with fireplace and formal dining room. Follow hardwood floors to the second grand informal living room, complete with fireplace and double height windows, and take in the views of the expansive backyard. Down the hall the first-floor master suite enjoys a private patio and two walk-in closets. The recently renovated master bathroom boldly features Fornacetti tiles, elevated whirlpool tub, and two water closets. The whimsical Fornacetti treatment continues in one of the half bathrooms on the first floor.
A grand home requires an especially grand kitchen sure to please the most discerning gourmet. Some highlights in the eat-in chef’s kitchen include sleek cabinetry, a hidden chef’s refrigerator, marble topped kitchen island, pantry, and butler’s pantry all overlooking the patios. Upstairs, nine more bedrooms (one currently in use as a state-of-the-art gym), all with private bathrooms and walk-in closets, take in the views of the grounds. Taking the elevator downstairs to the lower level one finds a private staff suite, sensational game room, elegantly appointed private movie theater, gym, and full bathroom.
Outdoors, imported Turkish tiles, chosen because they stay cool even on the hottest of summer days, cover the terraces surrounding the house and flow to a tree-lined walkway to the fenced 20 x 50 heated gunite pool, spa, and pool house. Throughout the grounds, Mahoney Associates Inc. have artfully maintained unique specimen trees and dedicated gardens that both highlight the rolling property and create privacy. Lastly, the property has room for a tennis court and enjoys coveted private beach path access to the ocean beaches. Exceptional details and impeccable workmanship in one of the most desirable locations in the Hamptons make this a truly special estate.
