56 Barnhart Street, Southampton, New York
This magnificent residence, designed by Francis Fleetwood in his signature gambrel style and customized by Richard Hirt for the owners, stands on 2.19 acres on a quiet street south of the highway in the heart of the Southampton Village estate section. Built on a grand scale, this geometrically disciplined home is constructed with the very finest materials and craftsmanship, and unparalleled attention to detail. Rooms are exceptionally spacious with soaring 12′ ceilings. Floors throughout are 12″ walnut finished with tung oil. All eight bedrooms are en suite, and all baths contain custom made tiles imported from Austria, white Thassos marble vanity tops, and private water closets. A sweeping staircase is the centerpiece of the two-story high, paneled entry hall, a monumental room leading directly to a long hall opening to the garden. This axis joins the living room and library on one end with the dining room, family room, elevator, an oversized butler’s pantry and a chef’s kitchen on the other. On the second floor, a very large master suite fully occupies the west end. It includes a spacious bedroom with fireplace, large walk-in closet, a luxurious bathroom also with fireplace, and access to a large sitting room and balcony. Four additional bedrooms and a huge sitting area with rear staircase complete this floor. The lower level is partially finished with plans and permits in place to add a large theater, wine cellar, playroom and office to existing recreation room, bedroom and laundry room. Outdoors in the grounds are an oversized infinity pool and a hard surface tennis court. Plans for building a pond and conservatory between the house and pool are potential attractive additions for which there are permits. This unusually attractive property offers a compelling opportunity to enjoy the very finest Southampton living.
