The past meets the future just off South Main Street in this soon-to-be completed gem. Says Tim Davis of The Corcoran Group: “There’s really nothing like it—new construction in this location, just 3–4 minutes from the center of town, with all the amenities it has.” The design was suggested by the Longfellow House in Cambridge, Mass., which George Washington used as his headquarters in 1775–76. But George never had it quite so good. Set on one-half acre, 60 Herrick Road offers 7,000 square feet of luxe living on three levels, with five fireplaces inside and one outside. There are mature plantings and trees, including an 18-foot arborvitae perimeter hedge. Says architect Brian Brady of Brady Design in Southampton: “We decided to make the main entrance on Herrick Road so that we could create an L-shaped house that would take full advantage of the sun.”
“I made decisions based on the kind of home I would want to live in,” says Davis. Indoors and out, the house (and its spa and 18-by-40-foot pool!) will reflect that loving attention. To take an imaginary tour, start in the commodious living room and proceed to the guest bedroom suite, which has a full bath and shower. Danby marble distinguishes the room, which is highlighted by a custom vanity. Near the fireplace-equipped formal dining room, the large butler’s pantry is strategically laid out with a dishwasher, an ice maker and a large wine cooler. In the convenient eat-in kitchen, equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, there’s a counter for a quick meal and a banquette area for more leisurely seating. The family room boasts an adjacent powder room and opens out onto a large side area or to the wraparound porch.
Up on the second floor, we begin with the master suite. The fireplace looks cozy, while the large, walk-in closet has plenty of room. The adjoining bath has double vanities and Calacatta marble throughout—a nice touch. The Thassos marble vanity counter is a welcome amenity, while the heated floor keeps feet toasty in winter. Rounding out the room are a large shower, a soaking tub and a private toilet area. The three ensuite bedrooms have baths finished in Dolomite marble, with Shaker custom vanities and high-end fixtures with nickel finish. The lower level offers surprises, such as a large family playroom with fireplace and bar, and a gym with full bath and shower. And outdoors, don’t forget that glorious pool and spa!
