Gary DePersia Presents $8 Million Wainscott Oceanfront

Did you know that Wainscott was named after a little town in Kent, England made famous in Dickens Great Expectations? With a one room school house, a population under 1000, and an area of only 7 square miles, this seaside hamlet might get overlooked. But then one might also miss out on the only new construction listed for sale today south of Main Street and surrounded by iconic Beach Lane, Town Line and Wainscott Pond. And if you missed out on the last stunning house by the Lifton-Green team on nearby Gibson Lane, then this is your opportunity to own a larger, improved version on an idyllic acre designed by noted local architect Val Florio. One enters the 6,100+ SF 6 bedroom shingled traditional through a double height paneled entry foyer over richly stained 6 inch wide walnut floors that fan out to include great room, den and covered porch, all warmed by fireplaces. The superbly outfitted kitchen with gathering room has its own fireplace as well as a butlers pantry that leads to the formal dining room. A guest suite, staff quarters and a pair of powder rooms on opposite sides of the residence, a laundry facility and a 3 car garage complete the first floor. Upstairs the master bedroom, stretching from front to rear of the house offers expansive bath, his/her closets and secluded terrace, is joined by 3 additional bedrooms, with baths all ensuite. The finished lower level offers a luxurious spa experience including gym and sauna as well as wine cellar, recreational areas, full bath, staff lounge and an optional movie theater with concession area. Outside, the 20′ x 50′ heated Gunite pool with 8′ x 8′ spa is serviced by a pool house that includes bathroom and kitchen. Great expectations, indeed!
