This is definitely something that’s not often seen in even the most eccentric of homes: A dual fireplace with faces on them where the mouths open as the firebox. And since it’s a dual fireplace, you get not just one fire-breathing man, but two.
This fascinating feature—described as “one of the most majestic and unique double fireplaces in the Hamptons”—is found in a Bridgehampton home on Mitchells Lane that just went on the market. Built in 1985, the home was designed in a chateau style, so the lavish feature isn’t out of the ordinary in the residence
Many of the Art Nouveau architectural features have been imported from France. Artisans were allegedly flown to the States from France and Italy in order to, according to the listing, “assure an exceptional quality.” This certainly adds to a bit of the story behind the 32-year-old home.
Other features of the 4,000-square-foot home include wall coverings dressed in custom-made silk, 30-foot ceilings in the great room, top-of-the-line appliances in the kitchen, radiant heated flooring on the first floor, and a steam room.
There are four bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms on just under six acres of land. The asking price is $7,995,000 with listing agent Christopher Burnside of Brown Harris Stevens.
