This $15 Million Waterfront Estate Brings a Little Italy to the Hamptons

Extravagant and brightly colored Murano blown-glass chandeliers adorn many of the interior spaces…

The charming hamlet of Bridgehampton, N.Y., lies across an ocean from Italy, but that did not prevent 130 Pointe Mecox’s arrival in 2002. The 5,000-square-foot home, which features six bedrooms and six bathrooms, embodies that of a fine Mediterranean villa transplanted to the Northeast. Italian materials were brought in to complete the masterpiece, as were Italian craftsmen to install them. Venetian plaster covers the walls and ceilings, and Botticino marble the floors in the entryway and formal dining room. Custom fireplaces warm the living room and master bedroom, and intricate ironwork is carried from the gated entry to interior and exterior railings.

But the crown jewels of this waterfront estate, currently listed for $15 million, are its Murano chandeliers. The blown glass in white and red hangs in the dining room, and an even more elaborate multicolored fixture adorns the 20-foot ceiling in the living room. Purple, yellow, blue, and pink flowers seemingly grow right out of the glass. Most bedrooms feature more modest examples in monotones, except for a second flowering example in the downstairs junior master suite. Upstairs in the master bedroom, wood-beamed ceilings give the room an especially cozy feel, and French doors open onto a balcony with views over Mecox Bay (located directly behind the home) and the rectangular backyard pool.

The flat, buildable lot is desirably located walking distance from the area’s famed beaches and a few minutes’ drive from the shingled storefronts and fine restaurants on Bridgehampton’s Main Street. (Inquiries: Bespoke Real Estate, Zachary Vichinsky, 631.500.9030, bespokerealestate.com)
