Marble, Brick, Random Windows, and Even More Marble in Southampton

New, 22 comments

You arrive walking onto a porch tiled in marble for some reason. You'd better hope it's not wet outside or you're going to be cracking your skull on that shiny tile. The foyer's brick and tile resembles a down-at-the-heels public high school more than anything else. The marble tile on the fireplace makes it seem as if it were made of extra shiny, smooth cinderblock. The fenestration looks like a bunch of windows left over from other construction jobs. We understand that there's a "tobacco drying shed" out back—because there's so much tobacco grown in Southampton? Who decided that was a design element crying out to be expressed here? The whole adds up to one deeply unfortunate-looking home. And all for a mere $1.664 million.
