Southampton condo once part of historic estate
A high-end condo unit in Southampton that was once part of an estate recently sold for $2.52 million.
It is housed in a Spanish Revival-style building, one of two structures dating to 1914 within the gated Villas complex. The buildings were designed by Long Island architects Walker & Gillette as part of the Henry H. Rogers Jr. estate called Black Point and are believed to have been used as staff quarters.
Rogers was the son of Henry Sr., the industrialist and Standard Oil tycoon. In the early 1970s, the property was owned by Raymond Kassar, then vice president of Burlington Industries and president of the Burlington House division. He later became chief executive of Atari.
Both buildings were gutted and renovated in 2006, says listing selling agent Aaron Curti of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Just two blocks from the ocean and the mansions of Gin Lane, affords views of Old Town Pond.
This unit has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and one half-bath, an eat-in kitchen with Viking and Sub-Zero appliances, living room with coffered ceilings and gas fireplace and a custom-built, temperature-controlled wine cellar that accommodates 1,000 bottles.
The complex has a community pool and privet hedges.
