Last week, our friends at Behind the Hedges reported that Four Fountains—a 1928 Southampton home once featured in Houses of the Hamptons—has come on the market for $35 million. When the home was first designed back in the ’20s, it served as an art, concert, and community venue that hosted fundraisers and film screenings.
The estate has had many notable residents—Lucien and Ethel Tyng were the first owners who used it as an arts center, then it belonged to the architect who designed it, Archibald Brown and his wife, Eleanor. It was later owned by CBS executive, William Paley, and his wife, Babe. Most recently, it’s been in the hands of former Morgan Stanley managing director, Bruce Bockmann.
Inside the main house, one will find a 40-foot by 40-foot grand living room that once served as a theater and gallery, multiple living areas, and garden access through French doors. There’s also not one, but two guest wings, in addition to a caretaker cottage.
Between each living space, there’s a total of 9,000 square feet, 10 bedrooms, and eight bathrooms. Outside, the future homeowner will enjoy a green house, swimming pool, pool house, and private pond.
Sited at 660 Halsey Neck Lane, the property is about a quarter-mile from the ocean at the end of Halsey Neck Lane.
Currently listed with Tim Davis from Corcoran Group Real Estate, the home was previously listed for sale back in 2015 for the same $35 million asking price.
