A historic house in Southampton, New York, that has been completely renovated has sold for $18.125 million.
The classic Southampton Village home, designed in 1893 by architect James L’Hommedieu, was listed for $18.95 million in July. It went into contract in less than two months and closed Friday, according to listing agent Michaela Keszler of Douglas Elliman.
“It’s a piece of history, but magnificently renovated,” Ms. Keszler said. “Everything in there was touched and beautifully designed. You do not have to have anything done for the next 50 years.”
Plus, it’s located within walking distance of the beach and town center, she said.
Ms. Keszler declined to discuss the seller and buyer on this deal. The transaction has yet to appear in public records online.
The seller, a limited liability company, bought the property for $10.5 million in 2011, property records show.
Spanning a total of 7,436 square feet, the three-story home has 10 bedrooms, eight full and two half bathrooms, a spacious living room, a den, a dining room, and a kitchen with a butler’s pantry. It also features front and back staircases, seven fireplaces and a gym/game room, according to the listing.
Landscaped by Doyle Herman Design, the one-acre property has century-old trees, lush flower gardens, a heated gunite pool, a three-car garage and a sports court, according to the listing. There is also an expansive porch that stretches 72 feet across the west facade of the house and wraps around to the pool.
The quick and near-full-price sale is reflective of the strong demand in the Hamptons housing market, Ms. Keszler said.
“The market picked up last December following a two-year slump, and Covid-19 gave it another push,” she said.
