A rare opportunity exists in "The spirit of the Southampton" La Dune highly regarded as one of the most iconic oceanfront estates in all of the Hamptons, and offers two residences on over four pristine stately hedged acres, with over 400 ft of bulkhead beach front. Inspired by Stanford White, the compound offers two gunite pools, sunken all weather tennis court, custom altos movie theatre, billiard room, fitness rooms, palatial grounds with court yards, private gardens and patio and decks surrounding almost all entry point. Built in the early 1900s, this classic Southampton home presides majestically over the rosa rugosa dunes that slope down to the white expansive sandy beach. Completely updated to the modern day the main house consists of 4 levels, the open formal entry leads the main level designed for entertaining with large living rooms, formal dining and breakfast room with an office and library. In all over 11,000 sq ft with 10 bedrooms with 8 baths, staff quarters and kitchen with large laundry room. The second residence has 9 Bedrooms and 8 baths designed to complement the main house in both design and proportions, with over 9600 sq ft of living area and a 6 car garage. The custom woodwork is similar the original found in the main house with dark wood floors and while walls. Both properties have access to beach, and enjoy the open vista of ocean waves, white sand beaches, the summer sea breezes and all day sun.
