The pluses: this is a large (9000sf), comfortable, well maintained house with 1.9 acres of pretty landscaping in a nice section of Southampton. Great for entertaining with a game room and TV room, and lots of bedrooms and fireplaces. There's an oddly small gunite pool and spa with pool house, tennis and basketball court, a bocce court and a putting green. Minuses: way too many Palladian windows. Even Palladio himself would think "Basta already!" The artwork looks like it came from a starving artists' sale at the Meadowlands (yes, we're being petty). Price seems a bit high; 90 Wyandanch down the street went for $12.5M last year and it has 4 acres of land, although this house isn't a teardown. We'll be interested to see the final sales price.
