The Latch Southampton Village To Begin Townhouse Showings



In-person showings begin this month at The Latch Southampton Village, a 20-unit community — 15 townhouses, four villas and one single-family home — on the 5-acre former Village Latch Inn property on Hill Street.

Nine units have already sold since preconstruction sales began last June, and now that construction is nearly complete, four designer-decorated model townhouses will be open for showings by appointment beginning Saturday, May 15, and the first occupants may move in starting in June.

The project by the Beechwood Organization, a Jericho-based development firm, is a mix of renovated historic buildings and brand new construction. The main Latch building and the Terry Cottage, both turn-of-the-20th-century structures by architect Stanford White of the renowned firm McKim, Mead & White, have been restored under the direction of Southampton architect Jason Poremba of Jason Thomas Architect. James McMullan of Fleetwood & McMullan Architects, an East Hampton firm, designed the new townhouses and villas and the community’s clubhouse.

Mr. Poremba explained during an interview on Friday that the Latch and the Terry Cottage had been changed significantly since they were built, and his challenge was to bring the exteriors back in line with how they appeared originally.
