Fairfield Porter's Family Home
Circa 1840s, formerly the family property of artist Fairfield Porter, located on Southampton Village's South Main Street, this residence retains myriad historic details from its exterior covered wraparound porch to its Old World layout across two floors of living spaces. High hedges, very mature trees, and pretty landscaping encase an approx. half-acre setting that includes a heated gunite pool and detached one-car garage.
The covered front porch opens to the main entry and a gravel drive runs alongside the house with is side/delivery entrance. Off the main entry, a sitting room/den with fireplace, living room with fireplace, and office with powder room, connect to the heart of the house. A butler's pantry with ice machine, beverage coolers, and dishwasher opens to the chef's kitchen with Viking range, AGA cooker, dishwasher, and refrigerator. The open plan includes an informal breakfast/dining room that opens to an outdoor stone patio. The rear of the house, also accessed from its side entrance includes a mud room, half-bath and separate laundry room. Three staircases go up to the second floor that includes the master bedroom with fireplace, five guest bedrooms, and three full baths.
The unfinished basement contains a wine room and the attic provides additional storage. The gravel parking area can accommodate three+ vehicles. Terrific location with immediate proximity to shops and restaurants, and a straight shot to Gin Lane beaches.
