Macklind Business District:
There are so many different types of residential architecture in Southampton that is easy to not see the two of the same style on the same block. From the Southampton website, I learned that most of the houses in the neighborhood were built in the 1920s and1930s. One of the reasons for this variety in style was that the main component used during this time for this area was brick produced right here in the city. With the ability of home contractors ordering and picking up directly from the manufacturer, the cost was dramatically lower than it would have been for someone out of state. A few of the major styles of SoHa include the classic Gingerbread, “Hansel and Gretel”, Neo-Tudor, Standard Brick, & Arts & Crafts.
Southampton is a wonderful neighborhood to live in. Tight-knit community, thriving business district, good schools, classic architecture are just a few of the reasons why buyers are drawn here. If these are things you want in a neighborhood, this is the place for you.
