In the front is a beautiful woodland garden with rare woodland flowers and ferns, moss-covered boulders and miniature ponds. In the rear is a Japanese garden, complete with a moon bridge over a babbling brook, a waterfall you can swim behind, a pond house with a deck you can sunbathe or dive from, and a 15 ft deep by 60 ft in diameter fresh-water pond that is pure enough to drink from, fed by its own well. The house itself is a 2-story Craftsman masterpiece with 3 bedrooms, 2 living rooms (upstairs and down), 2 bathrooms, dining room, kitchen, den, 2nd deck, and stone grille. A real gem! With fine wood-paneling, yacht-like cabinetry, marvelous carvings, and blown-glass windows throughout—along with central AC and every appliance. Part of a small private commu-nity with tennis courts, marina, and beach (just 2 blocks away) you’re welcome to use. We’re also just a short distance from both Southampton and Sag Harbor with all their shops and live theaters and dining on the water. But then you can also dine overlooking the water right at home! Just look at the photos!

About the owner: Hi. I'm Bill. I'm a psychologist and playwright with a keen interest in the Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau movements. My home reflects those interests--even down to the window panes. They're blown-glass panes--full of bubbles & streams. And I actually choose where I wanted each. Just for fun, pick a pane sometime and see if you can figure out why I wanted it there.
Why the Owner Chose Southampton: I like deep-sea fishing. My partner likes the mountains. So I created a property that offers the best of both--even to bringing in 20-ton boulders to create a forest-glen exactly-like the forest they came from. A forest that has since been clear-cut and turned into tract vacation homes. Not that those boulders look that big--because 80% of their mass lies buried, just as it was in nature.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Beauty. Romance. And serenity.
