Property description

Classic historic colonial with five bedrooms and five en suite bathrooms (five full bathrooms, one powder room, one outdoor shower), on mature lush grounds south of the Montauk Highway, close to the water in Westhampton.

A separate two bedroom apartment with full kitchen, living area, bathroom with steam shower is available for additional charge. These living quarters are perfect for housekeeper, nanny, in-laws etc. This two bedroom apartment has a separate outdoor entrance, a separate entrance to the butler's pantry and connection to the main house through a double locked door from one of the apartment's bedrooms to bedroom 5 en-suite bathroom (perfect for Nanny and care of children sleeping in bedroom 5).

The heated gunite SALT WATER POOL is very kind to the skin and eyes of the swimmer; the difference will be noticed on the first day in the pool. The har-tru tennis & bocce courts, family room, play room provide space for outdoor and indoor activities. The formal dining room, large formal living room, stainless steel kitchen and butler's pantry are perfect for entertaining or for any size family. The patio and side porch (side covered porch is secure for young children) provide space for formal or informal relaxation. The ground floor master bedroom is easily accessible for all ages. The out door shower on brick patio adjacent to the pool is a refreshing end to any outdoor activity. The pool is not accessible from any house door which is a safety factor for families with young children to prevent accidental pool entry. The pool is usually closed for the season early October. However, an easily removed solar bubble blanket can help prolong the season. The pool will remain open beyond the usual closure after an appropriate fee is negotiated and received separate from the booking rental fee.

The butler's pantry has an additional refrigerator/freezer, sink and dish washer which is perfect for large families, small groups or entertaining.

The property was recently completely remodeled with major renovations each year thereafter. The fenced area around the heated gunite salt water pool was enlarged in 2014.

View websites http://www.SouthamptonTownNY.gov, www.WesthamptonLibrary.net and www.whbpac.org (Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center) for additional information concerning activities of the area. Guest cards for the Westhampton Library are provided in the Guest Information book "for a rainy day."

A har-tru bocce court adjacent to the har-tru tennis court is available. The heated gunite pool is a SALT WATER POOL. The salt water is very kind to the skin and eyes of the swimmer and each swimmer will notice the difference on the first day.

If Westhampton House is rented during the off-season, the salt-water pool is able to remain open for an additional fee. The fee is dependent upon the rental period and the length of time from the usual pool closure toward the end of September.

The property offers tremendous privacy, serenity and space for vacationers to get away, yet be close to everything.

A babysitter can be conveniently arranged for a leisurely intimate evening.

A BEACH PARKING PERMIT from Town of Southampton is available and can be arranged by owner dependent upon length of stay (two month minimum) and other factors. Detailed information required by Town of Southampton Parks and Recreation Dept should be discussed with owner.

In the late fall, winter and early spring months an ocean view is present from second level in addition from the third level (third level is available only upon direct discussion with Ms. C. Kempton).

Westhampton Beach has shops, delicatessens and restaurants in addition to occasional festivals and the Westhampton Performing Arts Center (WPAC). Nationally known entertainers are booked and the 2015 season can be viewed on the WPAC website.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: A love of older homes and has led us to completely remodel and redecorate this historic Suffolk county residence built shortly after the civil war. The initial part of the home was also used as a stagecoach stop for New York City travelers to the Hamptons and Montauk until the trains dominated passenger transportation. The original kitchen and dining room were large enough to service more than one stage coach. The remodeled home has many beautiful details with every amenity and convenience that the stage coach travelers of the 19th century would have never imagined.

Why the Owner Chose Westhampton:
The property is located in Westhampton with many local recreational and social activities. The Suffolk Theater in Riverhead and the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center in Westhampton Beach have nationally known entertainers and other activities for all ages. Westhampton Beach is a comfortable 1 1/2 mile walk. The North and South Forks are a convenient drive. But vacationers will find that every need is on the property and will especially enjoy the heated gunite salt water pool, tennis, bocce, croquet and the magnificent landscaping.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Professional har-tru tennis court, new heated SALT WATER gunite 20x40 pool, har-tru bocce court, three patios and beautiful covered porch are located on beautiful grounds which provide seclusion and privacy. If Westhampton House is rented during the off-seson, the salt-water pool is able to remain open for an additional fee. The fee is dependent upon the rental period and the length of time from the usual pool closure toward the end of September.
