Looking for a waterfront home with plenty of land?

Uppity could be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for — if you’re willing to put in some work.

The four-bedroom home sits on 1.67 acres off Middle Road, Southampton.

It includes a one-bedroom apartment, garage and a boat house. Its perch over the Little Sound offers clear views of Dockyard — and America’s Cup 2017.

Crisson&Co Limited is offering the property for $1.995 million.

“The pricing of this home does reflect that considerable renovation will be required by the new owner,” said agent Herb Crisson.

“But there is extraordinary value here. A blank canvas awaits your touch to create your own masterpiece. There is approximately 3,300 square feet of living space, consisting of a four-bedroom home plus a one-bedroom apartment.”

A large veranda grants entry into the spacious home. It leads into a hall with wood floors and a formal living room, which overlooks Five Star Island to the east and includes “an imposing fireplace with a raised hearth”.

French doors lead to a terrace.

The living room leads to a den and a dining room, both of which offer fantastic water views.

Added Mr Crisson: “The kitchen still has the original cabinetry and countertop but there is much space here to modernise the layout. There is a walk-in pantry and a separate laundry room with a two-piece washroom. From the kitchen there is a Dutch door leading to the front terrace and also a stairwell that leads downstairs to the garage and storage and also to the apartment.

“From many of the rooms, the front terrace and lawns there are commanding views which provide an endless and ever-changing vista. The 180-degree views include the Little Sound, the Great Sound and also Morgan’s Point and Dockyard and beyond the main channel. This is a perfect spot for watching the America’s Cup and other sailing events.”

The property boasts more than 500 feet of waterfront and includes a storage room and a dock, which is in need of repair.

“This stunning classic waterfront property is a very special treasure and although in need of modernisation, offers the opportunity of a spacious home with very easy access to the delights of waterfront living,” Mr Crisson said.
