Originally built around 1750, the historic and fashionable Southampton real estate is on the market for $ 7 million.
The Greek Revival style house, completely rebuilt in 2016, was first built by Captain George White, the captain of a whaler who became an important figure in the local history of the community. He was also a gold explorer and a well-known marine rescuer.
"Captain George White worked well during the 1849 gold rush in California," Tom Edmonds, executive director of the Southampton History Museum, told Post. "He went home, built this addition, and got married. White succeeded in developing a Southampton coal production company."
This house, known as "Captain George White House," With an area of 6,450 square feet, it boasts four levels of living space with seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
Consists of two sections — West (rear) wings built in white around 1750 and East wings added in the 1850s. The original structure was revisited and rebuilt in 2016 to keep up with the times.
"There is no primary source with the exact date the house was built, but I have a fairly informed opinion," Edmonds explained. "The west (rear) wing is the original house built around 1750. The east-facing (front) wing is from the 1850s."
"Around 1910, north wing, porch, south facing There was another update to the building when the canards were added. The huge barn near the new garage was demolished by the grandson around 1930. "
