Southampton Summer Rental


I was perusing the 'What's On In Southampton' site I have subscribed to last night and I came across some summer rentals. Seeing I am staying in Southampton, in a gorgeous B&B, I thought I might  check out some rentals in the area, just in case I decide to stay a little longer. 

How about this one?..... 2 acres, 8 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, 6 fireplaces (not that you'd need them in the summer), pool, tennis court ... and only $475,000 tariff for July/August. Who's with me? 


Gee, they know how to do it.



Hello transom and gorgeous panelling.... not to mention those beautiful wide floorboards.


Proving you don't have to have high ceilings to look gorgeous.... just throw in a transom/French door assembly or two.


Symmetry works... with a stud or two.


Cute kitchen.



There are always rolling green fields outside these beauties. They are always a minimum of 2 acres!


Beauuuuuutiful!


Love.


I am so getting a bike to ride while I am there....I think. I'll see more.
It's going to be interesting, as I'll have no time for jet lag... and if it visits me?... I'll be riding a bike!

Happy Tuesday!

  1. move....me....in!

    The colours! the colours of the shingles, walls, everything.
    I couldn't stop looking at the width of those floorboards. And I love anything with dark floorboards and light walls.
    the kitchen is crying out for a massive marble-topped island bench.
    sign me up for the two months:-)

  3. So beautiful. Looks like the 'Revenge' set!

    There is a trick to avoiding jetlag. Don't sleep much the two nights before you board the plane, then try and sleep the whole way to LA. On the 5-hr flight to NY, stay awake, then hit the ground running when you reach NY. If it's evening, just go for a walk around the neighbourhood and grab some light dinner, etc. Then go to bed. (And if you land in the morning or afternoon, resist the urge to sleep during the day, even if it's the middle of the night in Brisbane.) What you're trying to do is fit in with the NY time and leave your Australian body clock behind. It's an old trick that an flight attendant taught me and it does work. Most frequent travellers do it. Sometimes I still get it but it's rare now.

    Wishing you a wonderful trip! Looking forward to seeing all the gorgeous photos!

    1. Thanks Janelle! Oh how I wish I could sleep on planes! ... or buses... I did the whole 24 hour Snow Bus Uni trip, Brisbane to Jindabyne, in 1984, awake. Sounds great advice and I can see the science...get on US time asap. I am going to hit up my GP tomorrow for some melatonin and make sure I stare directly at that US sun as soon as it comes up.... get that pineal gland working right. I arrive at night. A-M xx

  5. Just looking at that living room makes me happy. A-M I am green with envy. I have 'done' The Hamptons and would so much love to go back. Vermont too was a house lovers paradise. I wish you the most wonderful time and many happy memories from your trip.

  7. Count me in though I worry that the kitchen is perhaps a bit basic, maybe we need to go to the next price range!!!!!!

  8. I hope a butler, chef & chauffer come with that price! Perhaps even a pool boy ;-)

  10. Hey A-M have you ever watched an American TV show called Royal Pains? It's about a Concierge Doctor who sets up business in the Hamptons. Whilst not the best show on TV it's worth a watch just for the real estate - they go to so many beautiful homes in the Hamptons - great stuff - might help with the apparent real estate stalking you are so loving at the moment!

  11. Another stunner A-M. God I want a sprawling Estate somewhere. Anywhere!

    You'd be set for transoms in that place, that's for sure.

  12. Stunning, A-M, just stunning! I can't wait to see and hear all about your Hamptons adventure. Soooo terribly envious! You will have a ball :-)

  13. Lucky, lucky you! This home is truly amazing!! The glass doors and the landing on the stairs did it for me! G.x

  15. Apparently Organised is right on the money with the TV show royal Pains. I too watch it for the houses. So many heart stoppers on it.

  16. Ok so my crew and I would definitely fit in the 8 bedroom, ten bathroom one, I got excited when I read that...and of course we could 'share' as they could double up and that would be no worries...I just have a small problem with the price tag...damn snag! :(
