Applications outside of an Historic District:
Rick Sarcona, 120 Post Lane: demolish existing house. Build 3,468-square-foot home with 336-square-foot detached garage and 520-square-foot pool house. Rick Sarcona has “improved” two or three other properties nearby. This time he has employed Southampton Village Architectural Review Board member Brian Brady to design the proposed residence which is very large and loaded with “fancy” detailing such as dentil moldings, a Palladian window, Ionic columns, paired chimneys, and a two-story bay tower element on the west side. This is another step in the transformation of a street that was once lined with more modest homes.
Kamran Thomas Elghanayan, 1190 Meadow Lane: build an 851-square-foot addition and make other miscellaneous alterations. This is a contemporary residence near the western end of Meadow Lane. The architect is Austin Patterson Disston of Quogue. 6 neighbors were notified.
Jean-Paul Picot, 270 Ox Pasture Road: driveway gates.
Applications within an Historic District:
John J. Powers, 49 Ox Pasture Road: demolish and rebuilt existing side porch, demolish one-story rear addition and replace with two-story addition, and build detached garage. This is the historic “Sunnymeade” residence built for Albert Reeves (1807-1890) circa 1870, and subsequently owned by Captain Daniel Havens, Shepherd Knapp De Forest (1867-1929), Annie R. [Williams] Gilbert (1864-1927), Virginia Beggs Carnegie (1878-1952), and John Bacon (1909-1994) and Lois Frances Barstow (d. 2002) Aspegren. (See my blog for more about Sunnymeade.) It has been extensively altered and added onto over the years, but the main front volume remains intact. The proposed additions are sympathetic to the house’s character but I’m sure the ARB members will ask for their consultant, Zach Studenroth, to review the proposal. The architect is Peter Schulte of Schulte Park Architects in Manhattan. Eleven neighbors were notified.
