A historic estate at 199 Coopers Neck Lane in Southampton—designed by esteemed architect Grosvenor Atterbury in 1910—just went on the market for $18 million, which is the same price that the 14,000-square-foot home was listed for just two years ago.

In 2011, the home was listed for $20 million, and it got its first price reduction after four years up for sale, putting it just below $18 million. Eventually, it sold for $15 million in 2015, and now it’s back up for sale with the same $18 million listing price.

The interior of the massive estate has been totally cleared, and new plans for a renovation by architect Arthur Fraser are in place. The Bespoke Real Estate listing writes:

Going to this extent to thoughtfully reconfigure the layout and propose plans for reconstruction incorporating top-of-the-line features and amenities will save the prospective purchaser an inordinate amount of time and expense in reinventing the ultimate luxury residence. You can choose to carry out the proposed unique vision of superlative modern-day aesthetics, or imagine your own in this one-of-a-kind offering.

The listing then goes on to say that the plans would increase the square footage up to a whopping 15,100 square feet, with 10 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and three half-bathrooms. There would also be high ceilings, fireplaces, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Outside, there’s a heated gunite pool, patios, and hedged grounds for privacy. The plans also include the addition of a 875-square-foot pool house, a two-story three-car garage, and room for a tennis court.

So while the home isn’t turnkey, it is on three acres of land in the estate section of Southampton, and it’s got a history to it.
