It's purpose built for summer entertaining

This particular 1,115m² property was one of the original “summer cottages” for which the Hamptons are famous, built with plenty of bedrooms for guests and staff, says the agent, Molly Ferrer of Sotheby’s International Realty. 
“Southampton has long been popular with New York’s finance set and the current owners are no exception. New Yorkers often have lots of friends in this Hamptons village and it’s a great place for them to spend the summer, especially in a house like this, which is so well-suited to entertaining.”

The shingle-style house, set on 1.9 hectares and a short walk from the beach, is owned by investment banker Roberto de Guardiola of De Guardiola Advisors, and his wife Joanne, an interior designer. The couple bought the property in 1994 and have carried out extensive renovations, including the restoration of original custom decorative plaster mouldings such as the cove ceiling in the living room.

The three-storey house has 11 bedrooms, two of which are in a separate guest apartment in the north wing of the house with a separate entrance. A 139.3 square metre stable, now used for entertaining, has been completely uprooted and moved closer to the main house, and there is also a heated pool and a tennis court.
