This century-old carriage house in the North Sea neighborhood of Southampton has some serious renovation potential. It was originally built in the early 1900s as a carriage house for a farm, later re-visioned as a residence in 1951, and was even renovated in 1999, according to the listing.

But after nearly 20 years, we think that this home is ready for another renovation, and the potential with this home is endless.

It looks like the structure has maintained quite a few period details from the original construction—some of the doors and even the hardwood floors look to be weathered from the years. To make things easy, the eat-in kitchen already has stainless steep appliances, including a Viking range.

While the wood paneling, wallpaper, and kitchen cabinets are all dating the abode, we think that some white walls and a fresh coat of paint will help make the space more contemporary.

In particular, we love the blue-tiled bathroom with dual showers and the wood-burning brick fireplace in the living room. The living and dining space has a nice, wide open floor plan with French doors that lead to the exterior, where one will find a gunite pool, brick patios, gardens, and a sunken croquet lawn surrounded by Catalpa trees.

In 2,200 square feet, there are three bedrooms and three bathrooms on 0.41 acres of land. The property also features a boat slit in a private shared dock nearby. Located at 22 Kendalls Lane off Noyac Road, the home is close to Wooley Pond and the Peconic Bay.

The home is listed with real estate agent, Laura White, from Saunders Real Estate.
