One of Hampton’s most notable estate properties, 601 E Seminary Avenue has been the beneficiary of an extraordinary renovation and expansion, preserving the classic look and feel of this landmark property while creating a luxurious oasis perfect for today’s modern lifestyle. Situated on over 3.5 acres of neatly manicured lawns, accented by stunning, stone-walled gardens, mature growth trees, and stone terraces, this 4 Bedroom, 4/3 Bath traditional home offers amazing entertaining areas both inside and out.
A flagstone path leads through a small walled garden with fountain up to the covered porch and into a traditional Foyer with graceful curved staircase. A wide archway opens to the banquet-sized formal Dining Room, accented by a fireplace with a colonial mantel. Flanking the fireplace, two sets of French doors lead into a commodious Sun Room with a stone interior wall, fireplace, and three walls of windows including an atrium door providing access to a patio and hot tub.
Adjoining the Foyer, a formal Living Room boasts a lovely bay window with glazed door to the Patio and a swinging door to the custom gourmet eat-in Kitchen. With a travertine marble floor, custom cabinetry, island/breakfast bar, granite counters, professional grade stainless appliances and a built-in window seat, this space is nothing short of delightful. Awash in natural light, the adjacent Breakfast Room embodies comfort and charm with a striking raised stone fireplace as well as two originally exterior stone walls. French doors open to the front garden and a portal leads to the Study with built-in bookcases. From the Kitchen, a matching corridor leads to the breathtaking Great Room with soaring vaulted ceiling, a full-height stone chimney wall, custom cabinetry and six arched, clerestory windows in barrel vaulted dormers. French doors open out to the stone outdoor Living Room terrace with abundant entertaining space accented by a Koi pond with fountain, picnic area, and stone fireplace. A Mud Room and Laundry Room complete this level and a breezeway leads to the matching, finished 3-car Garage with carriage house style doors and a second level storage loft.
The Second level boasts a luxurious Master Bedroom Suite with hardwood floors, stone fireplace with terra cotta hearth, built-in corner cabinets, two custom over-sized fitted-out walk-in closets, a linen closet, and an attached Master Spa Bath with heated limestone floor. Two additional, spacious en-suite Bedrooms share this level.
