Long one of America’s most privileged settings, Southampton remains a bastion of refined splendor, its legendary estates cloistered magnificently within generations-old very private gardens of unsurpassing loveliness. A delightful case in point is the sweeping family compound embraced by three acres accessing sparkling Lake Agawam. A captivating traditional of cedar shingles, it holds within its handsome exterior a heartwarming haven as conducive to grand entertaining in its stately formal rooms as it is to fashionable play on its swimming pool terrace with poolhouse and gym, its basketball court, or its two tennis courts with viewing pavilion. A country kitchen, family room, media lounge, and eight bedrooms and baths lend additional cordiality to the 8,000-square-foot manor. A true oasis from nearby Manhattan, it expresses fully the Southampton spirit.
