Located at 92 Coopers Neck Lane in Southampton, this original Southampton summer colony house just hit the market under Corcoran Group Real Estate agent Tim Davis for $29.5 million, reports Behind the Hedges.

The home was built in 1899 for Alonzo Castle Monson, who dubbed it “Mon Repos,” or, “my place of rest” in French. Virginia Beggs Carnegie—who was married to Andrew Carnegie’s nephew—purchased the home with her husband after Monson’s death and renamed the estate “Clyden,” after the Clyde River in Scotland.

There are 11 bedrooms and 14.5 bathrooms in the 12,000-square-foot shingle style home, as well as 10-foot ceilings, a tennis court, and heated pool. It has been restored and renovated and sits on 4.6 acres of land south of the highway.

In 2015, the estate was listed with a $37.5 million asking price.
