This circa-1900 home is linked to a family whose ancestors were among Southampton’s original settlers, its listing agent says. It is listed for $2,999,999.
The six-bedroom, seven-bath home on a 161-by 291-foot parcel has been updated by owners Christopher and Kimberly Allen, but retains historic charm, starting with the unusual brick floor spanning the main entrance, living room and dining room.
“Almost the whole first floor is brick,” says listing agent Diane Weidler of Leesa Byrnes Realty. A descendant of John Jagger, one of Southampton’s earliest settlers, built the home, she adds.
Wide-plank wood floors, exposed, hand-hewn ceiling beams, original built-ins and crown moldings are paired with 21st century systems throughout. The home has 400-amp electrical, updated plumbing, double-pane windows and multiple Energy Star appliances. There is also eight-zone central air, seven-zone heat and four hot-water heaters.
Additions to the 5,000-square-foot home include a solarium and a first-floor master bedroom with a walk-in closet, a full bathroom en suite, high tray ceilings and a private deck. Elsewhere on the first floor, there is a den, a living room, a formal dining room, a full bathroom and an eat-in kitchen.
The second floor features five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, and the attic has two skylights, an office and a craft room.
In addition to the private deck, there is a slate patio in the backyard with a seven-zone in-ground sprinkler system, 150-year-old trees and a 20-by-40-foot in-ground saltwater pool. The space is accessible from a main rear door as well as the solarium.
Currently listed as a residential property, the home can also be purchased as a bed-and-breakfast and is currently operating as Butler’s Manor, says Weidler.
