This Southampton Estate Listed for $20M Exudes Classic Hamptons Elegance

With Memorial Day weekend now over and done, summer is no longer a faraway prospect. And while rentals and hotels can certainly supply a special experience in the Hamptons, nothing does the trick quite like having a private property to call home. One spectacular listing that may reel in buyers with deep pockets is this quintessential shingle-style Southampton estate. Asking $19.999 million, 56 Barnhart Street offers classic Hamptons elegance just a few blocks from the beach.

The property encompasses 2.2 acres, with the centerpiece being a two-story, 10,550-square-foot residence. Ideal for those who love to host, the home includes a whopping 8 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms so friends and family can visit. The shared living spaces, over-sized and soaked in sun, amplify this sense of spaciousness. A grand foyer branches the chef’s kitchen and family room, all walls of glass, with the outside.

That sweeping outside is accessed via a set of glass-paneled doors off the foyer, guarded on either side by a pair of life-size Queen’s Guard dolls. Just beyond lies the pool, lined neatly by chairs and overlooking the tennis court. Almost like a private park, this broad lawn peppered with trees is the icing on top.

Harald Grant of Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
