First time offered, this renowned oceanfront estate in the Village of Southampton is located within the prestigious and historic Murray Compound, and is sited on 3.6 /- acres with over 200 ft. of direct oceanfront. The lovely custom French chateau-style residence was built to maximize its stunning ocean vistas beyond its Rosa Rugosa covered dune. It is approached by a long private drive as its deep-toned stucco façade rises over the front parking court. Enter through the massive front doors and stone archway, up a double-plus height curved plaster-walled stair with custom carved iron railings to main landing. The arches theme repeats from the living/great room with enormous carved stone fireplace, to floor-to-ceiling height windows that open outside to a series of tiered stone patios down to the oceanside, 50’x20′ swimming pool.
Back inside, the formal dining room, with its own carved fireplace, opens to the professional-grade kitchen with family room, both that open to ocean-facing covered outdoor patio suitable for hosting large parties. Off the main floor, a separate staircase leads to two identical guest bedroom suites. A grand staircase rises to the master bedroom suite with its own entry foyer, sitting room, fireplace, arched windows opening to a private beach view deck, and two separate bathrooms with dressing closets. An elevator services all three floors. The ground level includes a service entry, laundry facility, wine cellar, separate one-bedroom apartment, and 2-car garage. The residence was built on over 330 pilings, and includes its own power generator. Much of the stone work in its numerous archways and floors were imported, and experts were employed to realize the vision of this French chateau on the ocean. Click here for the property website.
