A 6-bedroom on Artist Colony Lane in Southampton Village sits on just over an acre on a tree-lined cul-de-sac. Built by noted architect Arthur Fraser as his personal residence, it’s been renovated with every modern convenience. Over 6,600 square feet on three levels, it includes a high-ceilinged living room with a wood-burning fireplace, an open gourmet kitchen with a large center island bar and a family room with fireplace and breakfast nook. The pergola-covered bluestone patio is ideal for dining and year-round entertaining and the finished lower level features a large rec room, media room, wine room and an attached two-car garage. Grounds were landscaped by Marders, with specimen trees and hedges offering complete privacy. With Martha Gundersen and Paul Brennan of Douglas Elliman, asking $8,495,000.
Corcoran’s Gary DePersia has a stunning waterfront estate with a dock and bayfront on Shelter Island, at 2 Charlies Lane on West Neck Harbor. The address is a water-lover’s dream, with a bulkheaded bayfront on protected waters. The gated compound features a home originally designed by Bertrand Goldberg, a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright. Now rebuilt and expanded by architect David Schefer, the 6,000-square-foot home features six bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as heated stone floors, a mahogany ceiling and a stone fireplace. A secluded primary wing offers water views; there is also a media room, a gym, a heated pool, a two-car garage and patios that take in the bay. An underground cistern cultivates an organic landscape and supports the natural surroundings—including a bayside gravel garden and a beach sand firepit. Asking $13,950,000.

A lower level will include two more guest suites, and an area perfectly suited for a media room or a gym. The property sits on over an acre in a tennis community.
