Forgot Hamptons beach houses–try farmhouses instead. Pictured above is an original 1740s barn that sits on 3.7 acres of land in Sagaponack, a village of Southampton. The structure’s intact posts and beams are an example of the traditional English barn design, construction that was brought over by English settlers. The architecture has been meticulously restored and slightly altered to accommodate living spaces. The result? A truly unique residence surrounded by beautiful land and a pool. Start saving your pennies, as it is now on the market asking $2.4 million.
The property is gated in, as many of the nicest Hamptons properties are. What follows is a long and winding driveway taking you way back from the gates and toward the barn.
The exterior is as well preserved as the interior. While the main area of the barn, which houses the main living and dining area, was constructed in 1740, the kitchen and bedroom areas were later additions. The newer construction, however, looks like a seamless addition to the older portion of the house.
Here’s another shot of the great room, which has a 28-foot pitch, large hearth, wide plank floors and vertical wall boards. There were three 10-foot French doors added to bring in lots of light.
With these beautiful hearths, this Hamptons house is looking just as appealing for the wintertime as it does for summer.
Although those 1740s details are nice, you’ve still got to go all out with modern amenities when it comes to the Hamptons. The kitchen is part of the newer addition of the house, so it is sleek and modern. (Other modern perks include Bose surround sound and center air conditioning.)
There are three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, also part of the modern addition. We love the large glass door that leads you from the bedroom to the outdoor space, as well as the unique wood details in the bathroom that echo the historic elements of the barn.
The property is as much about the outdoor space as it is about the barn. There’s 3.6 acres of greenery with patios, landscaping and a heated swimming pool. Just in case you need visual evidence of how much space this property comes with…
…Look no further. It’s official: this Southamptons house is incredible inside and out.
