Palm Beach meets the Hamptons in this special estate home. The 12 room main house has four bedrooms, five full and three half baths. The two story Pool House features a cabana and full pool bath plus there is an expansive second floor studio with an additional full bath. In short, this estate was created with weekend entertaining in mind and room for multiple guests. Situated on a prestigious Southampton lane far south of the highway and a block to the ocean and beach, this gated retreat blends a formal elegance with whimsical elements for a playful, casually sophisticated feeling. Carefully designed with no detail left unconsidered, there are many places to entertain or escape. A central living room anchored by a commodiously scaled gas-burning fireplace with a one-of-a kind surround invites you through multiple French doors that spill onto a rear terrace overlooking the estate's beautifully groomed grounds and pool area. One side of the main level finds the eat-in kitchen with central island and high-end appliances, a sunny breakfast area with swag-curtained banquette, a lacquered ceiling dining room, and a hand illustrated and painted funscaped sunroom/den. The other side is devoted to the grand master suite centered by a cozy sitting room and gracious scaled bedroom with fireplace; her bath is off one side of the bedroom and his bath is off the other side. Both baths are sumptuous, marble, and sport heated floors, both with adjacent room size walk-in closets. A graceful Claridges Hotel-inspired painted wrought iron semicircular staircase ascends to the second level where three en-suite bedrooms await. Two reside on one side of the floor with the third on the opposite side, accompanied by an office and en-suite powder room. Rear stairs descend to the kitchen. The grounds are exceptionally lovely and well thought-out. The front landscape is both dramatic yet welcoming in the manicured banks of spectacular sized boxwoods that grace the home's front. The rear is more serene and symmetrical in the style of a formal English garden. A limestone pathway leads from the house to the heated gunite pool which is punctuated by a conical shaped towering spruce in each corner and surrounded by a limestone patio. The pink and contrasting white quoin-trimmed pool house is exceptionally large and compliments the main house but adds an element of fun through its less formal, more playful design. Sitting on One Acre, at 622 Halsey Neck Lane in the coveted Estate Section of Southampton, the house fronts one of the town's prettiest streets where in season, a tree-topped canopy forms to funnel one's gaze towards its ultimate destination - the ocean.
