Inspired by the quaint, colorful Victorian homes scattered around Water Mill, N.Y., 41 Mill Pond Lane blends sandy beiges and soft blues to create a cottage-style Hamptons getaway. The more than 4,000-square-foot home was built in 2014 by John Rives and designed by interior designer Guillaume Gentet, who picked out the color schemes and materials used for the build. The four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom home (another room can be used as either a fifth bedroom or a study) is situated on a half-acre of land and offers beautiful views of Mill Pond.
Sweeping 10-foot ceilings, along with French doors, large windows, and white walls make the first floor feel light and airy. The living room, foyer, and dining room showcase elegant chandeliers, original white-oak flooring, and custom paneling. The 300-square-foot chef’s kitchen includes a large island bar, Miele appliances, premium cabinetry, and a gas range. An adjacent dining nook is well-suited for weekend brunches or family dinners. The master bedroom contains a large walk-in closet, a bathroom with a walk-in shower and clawfoot tub, and direct access to a wraparound patio and heated swimming pool.
The 1,500-square-foot second story offers views of Mill Pond, three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and private balconies, and a concealed staircase that leads to a 400-square-foot attic. Located 90 miles from New York City, the property provides secluded country charm within an easy drive to the bustling Big Apple.
