With generous spaces for entertaining and relaxing in absolute privacy, the bright, inviting historic home delights with light-filled spaces for modern living behind its classic 1840s façade. Owned once by renowned Hamptons artist Fairfield Porter, the traditional home is a local icon often depicted in his representational paintings. Interiors have been freshly updated and modernized throughout, yet the home retains much of its original personality with high ceilings, five decorative fireplace hearths, and many period details. Two stories feature 4,700 square feet of floorspace with separate rooms for formal and casual events, as well as a family area and morning room, all taking full advantage of natural light from a southern exposure. The smart, well-equipped gourmet kitchen, breakfast bar seating area, and butler’s pantry form the heart of the house. Seven well-proportioned bedrooms are all located on the upper level, and each enjoys a pleasant view over the estate’s verdant surroundings. There is also a separate study nook, downstairs home office, large attic storage space, and a huge basement level with storeroom and wine cellar. Picturesque outdoor areas will truly appeal to those who love entertaining; a large covered porch overlooks rolling grounds and mature hedged gardens nestled upon an expansive half-acre landholding complete with a gunite swimming pool, garage, and extra storage. The prestigious address—south of the highway close to Jobs Lane and Main Street amenities, as well as a choice of beaches within close proximity—is the quintessential country abode offering a lifestyle of charm, style, and boundless space.
