So what if this historic red-brick house is moatless and only 2,900 square feet in size—its characteristic ivy-covered turret has got the oceanfront town of Southampton, New York, calling it "the Castle" nonetheless. Built in 1911, the three-bedroom dwelling was most recently purchased by noted Manhattan interior designer William Sofield in for $830K in 1999. After over a decade of careful restoration, Sofield has listed the home for $4.3M.
There are two bedroom suites on the main level and a sunny master bedroom up in the turret. Sofield has tried to revive the home's original arts-and-crafts style décor, complete with retro appliances in the kitchen and plenty of wooden furnishings throughout. The petite residence also has a surprising treat in the backyard: right next to the heated gunite pool, there's a design-y gazebo formed by elaborately carved openings.
