Hamptons Estate Of The Day

by KRISTIN LUCIANO · June 8, 2009

    On Saturday, we were honored to take a private tour of the Atwater Estate in Westhampton, Beach. Len Conway, the owner of the estate, played host on Saturday to A Christie’s First: A Special Sale of Fine and Rare Wines in the Hamptons. This estate boasts an impressive 24 rooms, 6 fireplaces, and has 1,000 feet of private waterfront property. The home exudes an "elegance, history, and Old World charm of a bygone era" according to Kathleen Coumou, VP for the Northeast Region of Christie's Great Estates. Originally built in 1903 for the Pennsylvania coal baron, William C. Atwater, the architect of this estate was the same architect who built the Lincoln Memorial, Henry Bacon. Currently the home is priced at a lofty $29 million, however, we know this price may be slightly pricey for most. With that in mind, we took plenty of pictures to provide you with your own $29 million dollar house tour experience. Some of our favorite things in this house included a disguised kitchen door in the dining room, a massive gourmet kitchen with an attached water-view breakfast room.
