This 1895 Queen Anne is exactly what people picture when they think about a classic Southampton mansion. It has two acres of mature gardens with a pool and tennis court, along with an attached pool house. Inside, there is 9500sf of space, with ten bedrooms and ten and a half baths. There's a sunroom that opens to a patio, a conservatory that opens to another patio, a library, and a master bedroom with a sleeping porch. The lower level sports a playroom and gym, a wine cellar, and staff quarters.
The property was listed for sale about two years ago when we featured it on Pricespotter, asking $16.25M. The listing then disappeared the same week. If you click over to that post, you'll see the place has been redecorated and much of the furniture replaced (bye-bye, Chippendale!). Now the asking price is $14.25M, which seems pretty reasonable. Rich folks, we urge you to eschew the cookie-cutter McMansions and go for the real thing.
