The Gables Cottage is located in Southampton's most desirable and convenient location, equidistant from the beautiful Southampton beaches and the village's shops and restaurants. The home is set back on the property to ensure privacy throughout. The front yard features lush greenery, which is seen while entering the long, gated main driveway. Be transported back to a time where quality and details are the predominant features of a home. The double story entrance foyer, the high ceilings, and grand windows make an instant statement.
