Perhaps inspired by the recent $25.75M sale of the house next door, Stephen Robert?former Chancellor of Brown University, member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and co-founder of The Source of Hope Foundation?has just listed his three-story home on Lee Avenue for the tidy sum of $18.5M.
And what does that buy you these days? "A quintessential summer colony cottage," according to Corcoran's Tim Davis. The residence is said to maintain many of its original elements (it dates back to 1899) while having been "updated for today's Hampton lifestyle." The home offers seven fireplaces, eight bedrooms, seven and a half bathrooms, enclosed porches and 7500 sq. ft. of living space. The 1.86 acre property itself boasts expansive brick terraces, old growth trees, original gardens, and?what else??a heated gunite pool.
