After that last listing, we thought a little palate cleanser was in order. Behold: 674 Scuttle Hole Road. Set on 42 acres (with another 20 available for purchase) and surrounded by 100s of acres of preserve in Bridgehampton is this brobdingnagian estate. Erected in 2006, the custom-built, 16,800 sq. ft. manor boasts the "unparalleled construction and meticulous handcrafted details found in European estates."
The home offers the usual creature comforts. Ya know, things like a 225 foot facade, a double-height French chalked oak panel entry hall with a curved staircase made of limestone, a sunroom with diamond-paned windows, an oak-paneled library, wide-plank antique black walnut floors (with doors to match), numerous antique French stone fireplaces, hand-carved stone bathtubs imported from Italy, a top of the line kitchen with La Cornue appliances, a 3-story elevator and a four car garage. There's also a poolhouse with a brick BBQ that opens to a 1500 sq. ft. Turkish limestone terrace surrounding the requisite heated gunite pool. So...uh...yeah...it's pretty nice.
The manse originally hit the market in June of 2009 with a $39.5M pricetag attached. And unlike some other homes in this price range, the owner seems interested in selling. After a pair of $5M pricechops, the ask now stands at a still-hefty $29.995M.
