This stunning Cape Cod-style beach cottage makes its debut for the first time ever to market, offering one lucky buyer a coveted address on the best street in Southampton, N.Y. Boasting nine bedrooms, nine full and two half bathrooms, a sparkling pool, and 9,000 square feet of luxury and lush outdoor entertaining, 237 Gin Lane affords the ultimate Hamptons lifestyle just steps from the ocean.
“The house is beautifully built with very special architectural and design details throughout, and has a separate bedroom wing, which is ideal for offering comfort and privacy to extended family and guests,” says listing agent Patricia Petrillo of Sotheby’s International Realty.
Currently priced at $17 million, the impressive two-acre retreat is rife with secret gardens, sophisticated architecture, and timeless design. Here you can soak up every drop of summer with lazy poolside afternoons, gourmet picnics on the beach, and elegant seaside soirées.
As described by Business Insider, “Southampton puts all other villages to shame when it comes to three things: shopping, celebrities, and real estate,” and is chock full of upscale boutiques, restaurants, and old money mansions. If it’s a treasured Southampton address you’re after, then legendary Gin Lane is it.
Not only does the ultra-luxury Hamptons estate put you right in the middle of the prized hamlet, it has everything you need to host a crowd, including a tranquil outdoor oasis that makes for one unforgettable garden party. “The trees and gardens are mature and magical,” says Petrillo.
Designed by famed landscape artist Mario Nievera, the outdoor living spaces are divine and dreamlike, with special attention paid to the picturesque dining porch, barbecue area, crystal blue pool, and tennis court. Cascading hydrangeas, a canopy of mature trees, and multiple fountains offer a soothing backdrop to long summer days.
In addition to its park-like setting, the home has equally impressive interiors, both light-filled and well-appointed. A gracious floor plan with multiple living areas, dining rooms, and sumptuous guest suites allows for effortless entertaining. Tall picture windows, gorgeous chandeliers, intricate moldings, and custom millwork can be found room to room.
From the charming eat-in kitchen, to the glorious sunroom with pristine garden and pool views, there is no shortage of intimate spaces to socialize, recharge, and renew. A sizable staff wing, wood-paneled library with fireplace, and two-car garage complete the lifestyle.
