We are very delighted to present this exquisite contemporary home on Squabble Lane, only a short distance from Southampton’s historic Murray Compound. This spectacular seven-bedroom house, spread over an expansive 8,500 st ft area, was originally designed for Elena Ford, the heiress to Ford Motors, and is one of the few homes in the area with direct access to the ocean.
Amidst the greenery of the surrounding neighbourhood, the stark white exterior facade of this house stands out like a beacon. With sloping grey roofs (with built-in skylights), curved balconies and cylindrical columns that span its two-storey height, it has an unmistakable presence. The home’s interiors have also been done completely in white, giving it a look that combines elegance, comfort and sophistication in a package that is both opulent and minimalistic at the same time.
As you enter the main atrium, you will be welcomed into a large living room with an electric fireplace and a formal dining room, which looks all the more impressive courtesy of high ceilings and a sweeping staircase that rises in front of you, framing the space. The views of greenery and the backyard pool through floor-to-ceiling windows provide a stunning contrast to the white interior palette, and the roof skylight helps to brighten up the room further. The living room leads into a gorgeous eat-in kitchen that features cabinets, countertops, a breakfast area and central island in white, with beautiful professional-grade stainless steel ovens breaking up the colour scheme.
A first-floor family room, also with an electric fireplace, is a great place to relax after dinner, and perhaps even enjoy a family game night. All of the bedrooms are very elegantly appointed, with the same elegant sense of design, as befits a home once designed for a corporate heiress. The master suite of the house is incredible and includes a gorgeous stone fireplace, private sitting room, exceptional master en-suite and large balcony. This room has been ideally positioned to overlook the most stunning views of the verdant scenery, the beach with the Atlantic Ocean on the horizon, and the lovely Wickapogue Pond that is located just beyond the borders of the property. These amazing sights can also be enjoyed from any of the expansive terraces of the home, where you can enjoy a small outdoor party with friends or a quiet open-air meal with the family.
The home also features an exercise room and private cinema room with a large theatre-quality screen and built-in surround sound system. It also has direct access to the outdoors, and you will definitely find yourself outdoors quite frequently during the Long Island summers as you lounge around the beautiful pool deck, featuring a stunning heated pool. Or you might take a walk along the beautiful green front lawn of this 2.4-acre property to dip your toes in the pond. The main road that runs alongside the house connects you directly to the beachfront, which is exclusively accessible by residents of the area.
This incredible house has not been up for sale in 18 years, which makes this an unmissable opportunity. Featuring a magnificent sense of style and an unbeatable location in the Hamptons, this would be the perfect family home or holiday getaway for our most discerning clients.
