House featuring the first pool in Southampton Estate Section – SOLD for $4.5 million
Built in 1926 and with current ownership dating 47 years, this Mediterranean Villa in the heart of Southampton Village is a rare treasure. As notable for its architecture as it is for its octagonal pool—the first on Herrick Road and in the estate section—the impressive home possesses a distinctive character.
Unique for its aesthetic, the five-bedroom, five-and-one-half bath home was once a typical Hamptons-style traditional before it was reimagined by its owners in the early 1990s. Purchased by the current owners from building contractor Ed Koral in 1972, the home has had only three title holders. Updates to the property include the addition of an octagonal pool, Spanish-style façade, tiled roof, columned loggia connecting the main house to the pool house, a serenity pool with fountain, and street-facing forecourt. Other reimagined details include the addition of ironwork from Mexico, two fireplaces from France, a grand staircase in the front landing, and the renovation of a one-car garage into a pool house.
Sited on just over half an acre in the village’s historic district, the 5,000-square-foot home also includes a beautifully landscaped property with generous and gracious entertaining areas, indoor spaces with floor-to-ceiling windows which feature views of the pool and terraces, and a two-car garage. Represented by Michaela Keszler of Douglas Elliman and Beate Moore of Sotheby’s International Realty.
