5 Cameron Way, Southampton
EXQUISITE 2 WEEK JULY RENTAL W/ TENNIS IN SOUTHAMPTON VILLAGE
In 1640 Charles I was King of England, the first European coffee house opened in Venice, and Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens met an untimely end. That same year a small group of Puritans landed at Conscience Point to form what is today the oldest English settlement in New York, eventually named after the Earl of Southampton. Three hundred seventy-nine years later, you can settle into far more luxury than our early forefathers ever imagined if you are nimble enough to snag this inspired 6-bedroom country manor on 1.5 acres with tennis available for a two week July rental. Curb appeal is in abundance as you approach this residence at the end of a long tree lined drive on a private Hampton lane.
As one enters this beautifully furnished shingled traditional home, a serene realm with gracious paneled walls opens to the spacious great room with soaring coffered ceilings, augmented by both fireplace and a dramatic floor to ceiling library wall. Dark stained oak floors fan out to include the living room with fireplace, formal dining room, powder room and the sprawling kitchen highlighted by professional appliances and large center island with seating and a staff bedroom nearby. The expansive ground floor master suite, fit for any king or queen, complete with large walk-in closet, luxurious bath and contiguous office, is sequestered from the other three bedrooms, all with baths ensuite, that are found on the second floor. A two-car garage completes the first floor. The finished lower level reveals a large recreational room with pool table, media room, gym and a unique bunk room with nearby full bath. Outside patios and expansive lawn connect the 40′ heated Gunite pool with the sunken court all framed by a verdant sanctuary defined by boxwoods, exquisite plantings, perennial gardens and specimen trees. And you’ll be glad to know it won’t seem like you’re traveling to Venice when you want your coffee which can be found in the village only a short bike ride away. Ocean beaches, restaurants and world-renowned golf courses are all within reach if your conscience points you quickly enough to this newly listed 2 week July rental.
