About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6, 2 living rooms, pondhouse, AC

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, 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 large house 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 community with tennis courts, marina, and beach (just 3 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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: I'm a psychologist and playwright with a private pactice in New York. I have taken courses in Japanese and Chinese garden design at the New York Botanical Garden and have employed top designers as consultants. I have also studied the Arts & Crafts & Art Nouveau Movements at the New School and have employed top designers in these areas also. I have used top local craftsmen and artists inside and out.

Why the Owner Chose Southampton, NY, USA:
My house and grounds are romantic, restful, and at the same time, fun. There are rare ferns, orchids, water lilies, & water irises to delight the eye. And a deep, cool, clear, freshwater pond that's all your own. If you have kids, they can have a whole floor to themselves, plus the pondhouse. Yet they're never too far away. And even in the summer it's often cool enough to snuggle by the fire. It's like having a mountain cabin and a beachouse all in one.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you read the reviews, you'll find that many couples wind up spending all their time right here. That's because of the care and imagination that's gone into every part of the property. Like the carvings in the upstairs bedrooms that tell the story of Moby Dick. Where else?
