William Merritt Chase, one of the most famous American painters of the late 19th century, made his mark in Southampton in 1891 when he became the founding director of the Shinnecock Hills Summer School of Art. His former 4,347-square-foot house at 9 Briar Lane, in fact, retains certain remnants of his history, such as an original soldier cross, herringbone floors and chestnut paneling in the great room. Sitting on a two-acre lot, the residence has six bedrooms and six bathrooms, according to 27East. [27East]Cathaleen Chen
