Every real estate buyer has a wish list, yet rarely does any home tick all the boxes. But a newly constructed house at 18 Nicholas Court in Southampton comes incredibly close to having it all. Looking for a traditional-style dwelling with modern appliances and amenities? Check. Need lots of space for family and friends, yet privacy and exclusivity too? This home has plenty of both.
Designed and constructed by Callos Builders, a family firm that has been building homes in Southampton since 1959, the seven-bedroom, 8.5-bath home encompasses 6,200 square feet of thoughtfully laid-out space within a classic character-rich painted shingle-style home with double-hung divided light windows, a columned porticoed entrance, white-painted trim and charming dormers. As such, its style is attuned to its surroundings, yet it offers the benefits of a new build, such as all-season energy efficiency and weather resistance.
“Its secluded location also stands out in that it is just four minutes north of some of the finest ocean beaches in the Hamptons, and at the same time only five minutes west of Southampton Village,” says Nest Seekers International listing broker James Giugliano (nestseekers.com). The classic detailing and high-quality finish work of the exterior extends indoors, where beautiful architectural elements like coffered ceilings, fireplaces and white millwork and moldings abound. While the layout of the home flows from one room to the other, “it’s not the overly common ‘open concept’ that you see with a lot of new construction homes over the last 10 years,” says J.B. Andreassi, another listing agent on the team representing the home. The lifestyle emphasis here is on seamless indooroutdoor living. “The home is slightly elevated off the main road, so when you enter the semicircular drive, it has almost a regal appearance,” says Giugliano.
Open views to the pool and 1.2 acres of lawn extend from all of the rooms situated along the back of the house, including the gourmet kitchen with its Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, dual ovens and dishwashers and breakfast area, which directly overlooks the pool through a pair of oversize double doors. With a large gunite pool, an integrated 10-person spa pool and a charming cabana, “the backyard screams vacation and classic Hamptons,” says Andreassi. “The size of the house and the amount of land you are getting for this price point and in this location,” says Giugliano, “is probably one of the best deals in all the Hamptons for 2019.”
