Informed by an aesthetic that transcends the centuries while celebrating the best of what’s new, Matthews Lane joins the growing résumé of highly styled, fully furnished Hampton estates by James Michael Howard, the renowned 2017 ICAA award-winning designer, that exemplify coherency in the abstract world of architecture, interiors and the landscape that contains them. In collaboration with McAlpine-Tankersley Architecture and Landscape Details, the visionary Howard created a 7-bedroom residence that spans 11,600 square feet on three levels of fully articulated living space that is now available for various time frames for summer 2022 rental.
The journey begins as you pass through the reception hall arriving in the dramatic great room, under 30-foot beamed ceilings, which incorporates multiple seating areas, a dining room and a gallery, all warmed by a custom fireplace that anchors the room while walls of windows allow for an abundance of natural light. The state-of-the-art eat-in kitchen, with a 10-seat breakfast area, has its own fireplace. Additional common spaces include the media room and an intimate living room. The first-floor master wing with sitting area, fireplace and luxurious bath is joined upstairs by four guest suites, including a secondary master with a roof terrace. An elevator connects all floors to the lower level with two more suites, a high-tech theater, a bar and a large recreation room with a fireplace and a custom billiards table. Geothermal heating, Control4 technology, Lutron lighting and a full audiovisual package add to the property’s list of amenities.
The lush, manicured grounds behind stone walls, including specimen trees, espalier apple trees and a verdant lawn, are enhanced by the heated pool and spa serviced by a covered cabana area that incorporates a pool house with a full bath and dressing room, an outdoor fireplace and a built-in kitchen that connects over broad stone patios to the two-car garage.
