Call it the ultimate summer hideaway: This Bridgehampton spread takes the best of beach living—easy access to the ocean, outdoor cooking, and music flowing inside and out—and elevates it all to a new level of contemporary luxury.
Designed by Barnes Coy Architects, the 6,000-square-foot, four-story home stands out among its wood-shingled, traditional Hamptons neighbors. Floor-to-ceiling glass and lots of right angles cut a striking architectural statement in Mecox Bay, which is known for its shallow water and small boating.
Inside, the architects chose an upside-down floor plan, all the better to capitalize on panoramic ocean views from the property. Entertaining areas are located on the upper floors while all bedrooms are all found on the second level, including a sprawling master suite with his-and-hers dressing rooms, spa baths, and a private terrace. All floors are accessed via an elevator, from the ground-floor garage outfitted for cars and boating equipment, up to the property’s fourth floor, an outdoor oasis that looks onto both Mecox Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. With a swimming pool, a covered kitchen area, and lots of space for alfresco entertaining, the top floor terrace takes the notion of a beach deck to new territory.
One floor below, an open-plan living area includes a Poliform kitchen with an all-star lineup of appliances: Sub-Zero, Miele, and Gaganeau. Want to head outside without changing levels? A massive 50-foot retractable wall of glass offers access to a 1,000-square-foot, bay-facing terrace with an outdoor barbeque and 85-inch television.
Throughout the entire home, a Sonos sound system is integrated indoors and out, working in concert with Lutron audio/visual control to complete that ultimate summer sensory experience.
The home is currently on the market for a cool $29.95 million. The property is listed by Bespoke Real Estate’s corporate listing division.
