This one's pretty impressive. This property is the epitome of a Southampton estate, from the rolling green lawns to the beautiful rambling old house. The residence was built at the turn of the last century, designed by Grosvenor Atterbury, and was updated a few years back by designer Mark Hampton. We might freshen up the kitchen a little, but that's a minor quibble. We love the contemporary art on display, especially the Damian Hirst spot painting in the stairwell. For your twenty mil, you get approximately three acres of Southampton estate section, a house with 11 bedrooms, 13 baths, 9 fireplaces, and the required gunite pool and pool house. It's just a short stroll to the beach and the village.
