It really doesn't get more gambrelrific than this Southampton seven-bedroom that very recently entered into contract. Designed by Francis Fleetwood (the man responsible for "Beechwood" located nearby) and built by Stanely Dalene, the 8500 sq. ft. residence was finally able to find a buyer after dropping its price $2M this past November. It was most recently listed at $13.95M.
And what exactly does a $14M house offer these days? For that, we'll turn to listing agent Gary DePersia (the man's copy is always worth a read).
"Standing sentry over nearly 2 magnificently landscaped acres, this 2004 gambrel style shingled residence offers a wonderful floor plan that includes paneled double height entry, great room and nearby den both with fireplaces, a dramatically fashioned kitchen with adjacent fireplaced family-room, butlers pantry and octagonal breakfast nook. The formal dining room reveals custom lacquered paneling and corner cabinetry. A double tray ceiling and octagonal pergola covered deck highlight the generous master suite that includes a pair of walk in closets leading to the glorious bath. The second floor also hosts 5 additional bedrooms and baths, a game room or gym as well as extensive laundry facilities. A 5000 bottle wine cellar awaits in a deep basement that has all elements in place to be finished while a heated garage with adjacent porte cochere will house your prized collection of vehicles. And finally, a kaleidoscope of color explodes outside enjoyed by those using the pool, spa, patio with fireplace and all weather tennis court. Specimen trees, including copper beeches and Japanese maples add a regal touch to this incredible property.
