An interior designer’s Victorian-style home in Water Mill—dubbed “the Witch’s Hat”—has come on the market for $2,295,000.

Built in 1884, the Queen Anne spans 3,259 square feet on 0.86 acres of hedged land. Inside, there are four bedrooms and four bathrooms, an open parlor, a fireplace in the living room, a sunroom, and a gourmet kitchen, while the master suite has a private porch and views of Mill Pond. All the guest bedrooms are ensuite.

Outside, the new owner will enjoy a covered wraparound porch, specimen landscaping, a pool, pool pavilion, and what the listing describes as a “double-height pool cottage,” which features a wood-burning fireplace in the sitting room.

Designer Richard Keith Langham purchased the 19th century home 2000 for $795,000 according to public record and has modernized the structure while still holding on to the character that makes 134-year-old home so special.

Sited north of the highway, the property is about three miles north of the ocean at Flying Point Beach, and nearby Main Street shops. It is listed with Compass Real Estate agent, Ginger Thoerner.
