For Sale $3,700,000 - Single Family Home
Turn back the hands of time and experience a charming 7 bedroom, 7-bath authentic Hamptons Summer Cottage experience set in the estate section of Southampton Village. The Mainstay, with its relaxed and easy vibe, is a timeless celebration of a genuine Hamptons American Resort lifestyle. Two hundred years ago, a general store occupied what is now the rear of the house. The house was subsequently expanded to a classic Hamptons shingled home, and then to a Bed and Breakfast, all while retaining the original architectural details unique to Hamptons summer cottages. The Mainstay is just minutes from the famed Ocean Beaches and elegant shopping of Southampton Village.
Those who treasure authenticity and character along with comforts will enjoy the private suite spaces, communal gathering spaces, and multiple outdoor and indoor dining and lounging areas. Outdoor garden rooms are flanked by a patio dining area, a 20×40 in-ground SALTWATER pool with a second dining area under a pergola drenched with wisterias and 0.50-acre perennial gardens. Gather around the warm and inviting eat in kitchen with wood burning stove and enjoy cocktails at the island while dinner is being prepared. An original butler’s pantry joins two dining areas so you have your pick of dining spots depending on your mood. Large groups can dine at the dining room table in the kitchen and/or in the dining room. On those days you want to spread out and stay in for the day, there are many options, including a private parlor perfect for reading or tea. The living room offers a large space to enjoy cocktails and television with the entire group. Take dips in the pool, enjoy private spaces in the garden and or search for fireflies at night while under the pergola poolside. The Mainstay’s large lawn areas offer a built in park like setting for all to enjoy. Elegant shopping, tennis, and the nationally renowned Shinnecock, Sebonac and National Golf courses are only a five minute drive away. Biking and running enthusiasts will enjoy routes to the ocean, the village and exploring the estate section. All the best Southampton has to offer, from dining, special events, and socializing to world-class art, international car shows, proximity to vineyards, to old-fashioned magical summer fun await you. Enjoy Outdoor Drive in Movies at Coopers Beach, concerts throughout the summer at Agawam Park, the latest films at Regal Cinema, and close proximity to all the other wonderful East End towns make the Mainstay the perfect spot for life long memories.
