North Main Street in Southampton Village is Hot, Hot, Hot



One of the hottest neighborhoods in the Hamptons? Listing prices have doubled and tripled along the mile-and-a-half stretch of North Main Street in Southampton Village. The generally modest wood-frame homes that sit along one of the area’s oldest thoroughfares are remnants of what was once a working-class neighborhood, though many have been recently renovated and upgraded—and sold for a tidy profit. Take, for example, 40 North Main, the former home of Baccarat’s Jaime Jiménez and Ralph Lauren’s Quinn Pofahl, who picked up the 4,500-square-foot, circa-1885 Victorian in 2009, restored and improved it, and then sold it for $3 million in 2013, nearly doubling their original investment.

Designers Brian Brady and Franco Biscardi have listed their North Main Street cottage in Southampton for a little under $2.5 million.

Architect Brian Brady and his partner, Franco Biscardi (above), have just listed their renovated circa-1935 home at 130 North Main (above) for slightly less than $2.5 million, represented by Susan Hovdesven of Douglas Elliman. The two-story traditional, which has been featured in the pages of HC&G, was once a “little ranch,” says Brady, who spruced up the 1,750-square-foot three-bedroom, three-bath by adding a classic entrance with columns and pilasters, an antique cypress front door, and a brick fireplace. “I think it’s an underrated area, and the location is just golden. It’s a little under-the-radar pocket.”

Architect Costas Kondylis’s modern Black Barn, at one time a ye olde potato barn, has a $3.8 million ask.

A hop, skip, and a jump away at 24 North Main, a 3,000-square-foot, 1850 farmhouse with intact period details is on the market for just under $1.8 million. The two-story, six-bedroom, five-bath residence sits on slightly less than a quarter of an acre and hasn’t been offered for sale for 80 years, says listing broker Peter Hallock of the Corcoran Group. Much further up the road, architect Costas Kondylis’s modern “Black Barn,” a 4,000-square-foot former potato barn at 416 North Main, is also up for grabs, listed for $3.8 million with Raphael Avigdor of Douglas Elliman.
