Built 1868
Iconic 2nd Empire Victorian house surrounded by iconic structures in historic Southport Village. Sturdy yet graceful; the beauty of the 4-bedroom, 5-bath Pomeroy House is matched only by the stunning botanical wonderland of its half-acre grounds with an in-ground pool in the private backyard. Its original construction in 1868 by architects Lambert & Bunnell firmly rooted this house in local history while more recent updates by David Scott Parker Architects, an award-winning firm, allow this home to embrace modern day living. Parker specializes in residential design and historic preservation. His renovation respected original period details even as he seamlessly introduced modern amenities. The stately 5,781 sf house contains unusually tall doors and windows, generously sized rooms, inlaid parquet flooring, imported mahogany moldings, and 9 fireplaces. Among its 10 rooms are two front parlors with pocket doors, banquet-sized formal dining room, updated gourmet kitchen and luxurious primary bedroom suite with a sitting room. The slate mansard roof and rounded dormers create a sizable third floor space with flexible options as a family room, another bedroom or art studio. The property is punctuated by established shrubbery, perennial plantings, and a majestic cherry tree on the front lawn. Convenient to everything. Only steps from the Southport train station, Pequot Library, Trinity Church, and only blocks from Southport Harbor, Marina, Beach, and village shops and eateries.
