It’s a long, tiresome, and constantly debated topic: Is Westhampton considered to be part of the Hamptons? Many people claim that anything west of the canal is definitely not part of the Hamptons. Others disagree. Others don’t care at all.
Regardless, it would be a shame to not talk about the real estate west of the canal... simply because it’s west of the canal.
It is worth noting that the price point of real estate west of the canal differs greatly than that of its eastern neighbors. The home at 24 Stacy Drive is a prime example of a home that would likely have a much higher asking price if it were located in Southampton or East Hampton.
The post modern home, built in 1991, has been on and off the market since 2015. When it was listed in March of 2015, it had an asking price of $6,195,000. It’s mostly gone down in price by increments since then, but was recently listed in March with Corcoran for $4,995,000—a little more than $1 million below the original asking price.
At three stories, the home sits at 7,200-square-feet on a 1.5 acre lot. It has seven bedrooms and seven-and-a-half bathrooms.
The entrance is particularly notable in this home, with rounded archways and columns running throughout. Though the columns intersecting with one another in the rounded archways seems a bit busy, the complementing windows in a similar design bring the elements together.
Those who need a lot of space to stretch out will enjoy the large eat-in kitchen. Seriously, there’s a ton of storage space here. The back wall of the kitchen is basically just a wall of cabinets, plus some appliances. Not to mention all the countertop space.
It looks like the home has underwent some updates since it was built in 1991, but some of those very ‘90s design elements can still be found. For example, the wallpaper in the master bedroom looks like an original Friends poster would complement it pretty well. But nothing is unforgivably outdated here.
The property is waterfront (no, not oceanfront unfortunately—it’s creek front), and comes with a dock and docking rights. The future homeowner will also enjoy an Olympic salt water pool and Har-Tru tennis court. This home is definitely suited for the athletic type.
So, yes, the home is in Westhampton. And some don’t consider Westhampton to be a part of the Hamptons. But some do. And those who do will enjoy the fact that they’re getting a large Hamptons home on a decent sized property with a pool, tennis court, and deepwater dock for under $5 million.
