We are delighted to present this historic ten-bedroom home located in a prominent area of Southampton. A true French style beauty, this 1920’s estate was originally built for Lucian Hamilton Tyng and designed by well-known architects Peabody, Wilson and Brown. Over the years the property has been refurbished to accentuate its unique style while maintaining a traditional charm.
Constructed on almost 7 acres of land, the estate is made up of different types of buildings covered with three types of roofs to distinguish each one from the other. The main house, maintaining a French appeal, is covered in mansard, the two guest wings in Dormer and the pool house alongside the caretaker’s cottage in a simple hipped roof. All buildings are coated in neutral tones and a beautifully decorated verandah covers three sides of the main home providing views of the excellently manicured gardens.
The beautifully decorated entry foyer exudes an aura of extravagance. Gold tones cover the walls and elegant light fixtures such as the candle sconces and candle chandeliers coupled with navy blue ornaments add a touch of royalty to this vintage space. Double Oakwood doors lead into a palatial formal living room with beautifully moulded ceilings. Large French windows leave you gazing out onto scenic garden views and allow in sunlight to brighten up the living space. Decorated with vintage furnishings and a stone-framed fireplace, the living room is a combination of royal and neutral tones.
A formal dining and eat-in kitchen complete with modern appliances can be found along the same wing. Each of the spacious rooms in the house has been carefully decorated with classic furnishings alongside a seamless mix of royal and neutral colours to preserve the traditional ambience carried through the home.
A large backyard garden that would make the perfect place to entertain family and friends can be accessed from the kitchen and master room. Homeowners would also be able to indulge in a casual swim in the massive pool during the summers and enjoy Sunday lunches at the pool house. Other unique features of this estate include a private pond and greenhouse.
Nestled in the heart of Southampton, this traditional French style home is the perfect option for the most discerning buyers.
