Classic Southampton: A Shingle-Style Charmer Hits the Market
Almost two centuries ago, this home known as ‘Ivy Lodge’ was built on 50 acres of farmland in Southampton. In modern times, it now exists on 2.7 acres at 120 Edge of Woods Road—a street name that couldn’t be more fitting. Enveloped by lush greenery and tucked neatly into nature, the circa-1830 home was restored and refreshed in 2007 at the hands of Kevin Hart Interiors, contractor Joan Limongello, and landscape designer Joe Cornetta. Seeking $5.9 million, this home is the epitome of a Southampton classic.
The dwelling’s beautiful shingle-style exterior provides the perfect preface for the traditional interiors. The main floor opens to a bright entryway, then on to perks like a custom mahogany bar and formal living room accented by a fireplace. Crown moldings carry throughout the home, a nod to its 19th-century roots.
Further darling living spaces include the sunroom and den—both fitted with fireplaces—which in turn provide a seamless transition for indoor-outdoor living. Once outside, summertime will be bliss as you wine and dine under the covered patio, take a dip in the pool or spa, or wash off beach salt and sand in the outdoor shower.
However, the primary suite is the ultimate wind-down spot. Complete with its own sitting room, as well as a spa and sauna, it even has a private deck for quiet morning moments.
All in all the property has eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms, but it’s not all about the main house. A carriage house is perfect for creating a buffer for visitors since it holds 1 bedroom, 1.5 baths, and a loft.
James K. Peyton and John Frangeskos of The Corcoran Group have the listing.
