$5.15M Southampton home built to ‘feel like a carriage house’

When Jerry Rosengarten designed this 6,662-square-foot Southampton home, now on the market for $5.15 million, he imagined he’d be living there himself.

His previous home on the lot, which he’d built in the early 1990s, was in need of an update, and he had a vision. “I wanted to make it feel like a carriage house,” he says. “I brought in stone and antique reclaimed wood to give it more of a 1940s barn-meets-carriage house feel.”

Rosengarten, who developed The Bowery Hotel, began renovating two years ago and ended up combining two adjoining lots, for a total of 0.58 acres. The home is designed to blend seamlessly with the landscape.

“Almost every room has a deck or door that opens to the outside,” says Rosengarten, who eventually decided to sell the house and downsize to a smaller home nearby.

The three-story, six-bedroom, seven-bath home features two wings on the second floor and sliding glass walls in the upper and lower entertainment areas to further open the house to the outdoors.

The landscaped grounds include an infinity pool and waterfall, and the entire house is fitted with geothermal heating and cooling.

Additional amenities include a wine cellar, three fireplaces (one outside and two inside) and steam showers.

The listing agent is Thomas Cavallo of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
