Summer in the Hamptons anyone? Our Splurge vs. Steal will have you dreaming of a getaway to the posh second home area, and for good reason. From sandy beaches and celebrity sightings, to crystal blue waters, wineries, luxury shops and fine dining, Southampton is the summer vacation spot we all need! This week we zero in on two exceptional Southampton, NY properties, each with sparkling pools, ample square footage, and plenty of bedrooms to host a crowd, but with price points that are miles apart. Which one would you choose?
Splurge: Classic Shingle-Style Cottage With Pool And Wine Cellar For $2.995M
Situated on a generous third-acre lot sits this picturesque five-bedroom, four-bathroom, 2,500-square-foot shingle-style cottage with fantastic Gunite pool. Imagine the parties you could throw in that backyard!
Surrounded by mature trees and greenspace it’s the ultimate Southampton summer house, described as having “a hedged-in front yard, covered front porch, and inside, a loft-like, open ground floor plan.”
The easy breezy layout means you can seamlessly entertain indoors and out. Just swing open the French doors to the blue stone patio and allow the outside in. A gracious living room with fireplace is great for cocktails and conversation, while the open-concept kitchen with Viking range and Miele dishwasher allow you to whip up a gourmet meal in style.
Head to the oversized upper level master suite and indulge in the spa bath or have morning coffee on your own private balcony overlooking the grounds. Impeccable guest suites, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, and ample storage round out the extraordinary home.
With close proximity to the village train and all the boutique shops and restaurants your heart desires, you’ll spend the entire summer soaking up the sun in style or brunching at Long Island’s hottest spots.
97 Pelletreau Street, Southampton, NY is currently listed by Harold Grant and Bruce Grant of Sotheby’s International Realty Southampton Brokerage for $2.995 million.
STEAL: Historic Colonial-Era Waterfront With Pool And Boat Slip For $1.695M
For almost half the price, this impressive Southampton North waterfront on Wooley pond affords six bedrooms, four full baths, and a whopping 3,700 square feet for nearly half the price!
An abundance of custom touches evoke warmth and charm throughout the elegantly designed estate, and you’ll love living on the water. The 150 feet of water frontage comes complete with a dock for small watercraft, paddle boards and kayaks, while a secondary dock offers a deeded slip to the property and can hold up to a 30-foot motor or sailboat.
The property description reveals the Southampton gem was “initially constructed in the Revolutionary era of 1780 as the David Rose house.”
According to Curbed Hamptons, “David Rose was a member of a wealthy and important clan in Southampton: he owned 350 acres in North Sea and was town supervisor in 1818 and president of the trustees at various time.”
The 3,700 square feet of living space contains stunning historic details, from the original front door to the colonial-era foyer and wide floorboards throughout.
And much like our Splurge, it too has a Gunite pool set among towering copper beech and walnut trees making for one idyllic poolside escape.
Impressive living areas, inviting outdoor porches, and a number of comfortable spaces to entertain make this a home to love. Do you have a favorite? Let us know in the comments and check out all of our Splurge vs. Steal Resort Editions here.
