We are delighted to present this magnificent seaside cottage that is part of the Murray Compound in the village of Southampton. Although it was built as recently as 25 years ago, the four-bedroom home possesses a very classical shingle-style architectural design. The cottage is spread over an area of 1,600 square feet and sits on an acre of land that includes a gorgeous pool, a tennis court and lush landscaping.
An arched gateway with a white picket fence, manicured lawn and a paved path leads to the cottage, which is divided into two wings connected by a central foyer. You are immediately greeted by a great room in one wing, which has been furnished with elegant Victorian-style furniture in bright pastel hues and lovely floral patterns. There is a fireplace in this room and large single-hung windows that provide gorgeous views of the yard while allowing in plenty of sunlight to brighten up space. You can also find a secondary living room with the same Victorian style decor, single-hung windows and another fireplace. French doors lead from the living room to a beautiful dining room set inside a solarium. Vaulted ceilings with wooden beams add a greater sense of height while also enhancing the classical country home feel of the cottage.
The kitchen has a simple white palette, which extends from the cabinetry to the countertops and is only broken up by the stainless steel stove and dishwasher. All of the appliances in the kitchen are completely new and top-of-the-line, giving it a more modern feel than the rest of the house. This space also functions as a laundry room and opens out to the patio. All four bedrooms have the same classical aesthetic of the living room, with muted tones and simple decor that is brightened up by minimally applied splashes of colour.
This cottage is the perfect summer getaway with a very spacious backyard that stretches out to a beautiful swimming pool and extends further to include a large tennis court. Whether you want to host an afternoon barbecue, evening soiree or a pool party, this home provides plenty of options for outdoor entertaining.
With its charming traditional design, elegant interiors and proximity to the beach, this lovely cottage would be an ideal primary residence or vacation home for our very discerning buyers.
