Southampton’s ‘Mocomanto’ snags special permit for controversial renovation

November 08, 2017 12:53PM

The Southampton Village Zoning Board ruled that owner Ken Fox can renovate his historic home on 472 First Neck Lane despite concerns about potential environmental impacts. The 1800s-era house, which has been called the “Jewel of Southampton Village,” sits on the waterfront of Lake Agawam. Fox purchased the property, named “Mocomanto,” in 2012 for $10.7 million and is planning a large addition to the home as a part of the renovation. [Curbed]
