It only received one price cut since coming on the market in October

Originally built in 1910, this stunning early 20th century home in the estate section of Southampton has found a buyer and is currently pending a sale. The 2.7-acre property came on the market in October of 2018 for $10.45 million, but was most recently listed for $9.95 million.

The 109-year-old home spans over 4,000 square feet with eight bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, but the property’s building envelope could accommodate a structure up to 10,000 square feet in size. Even though the home has been modernized in some places (such as the eat-in kitchen), the original character has been maintained.

The sellers have owned the property since 1978.

When we featured the house back in October, our commenters expressed that they hoped the new owners would not tear the house down to make room for a larger new-build. However, because the structure is a registered historic house, it cannot be torn down. Saunders listing agent Mark Greenwald told Curbed:

I found a buyer that appreciated the need to preserve the historical and architectural significance of this turn-of-the-century house and its classic Southampton heritage. The buyers will also integrate the existing house into a more expansive residence and add a tennis court so that the vintage estate will meet the needs and desires of the way we want to live today.

Sited on a gated 2.7 acres of land in Southampton’s estate section, new homeowners will be just a 5-minute drive from the ocean at Cooper’s Beach, and about the same distance from village shops and restaurants.
