The first commissioned work by “starchitect” Charles Gwathmey after his seminal Gwathmey Residence and Studio, the widely published Sedacca House is a two bedroom modernist “living sculpture.” Set on the highest point of a private 2.82 acre parcel in East Hampton, expanses of glass, slate flooring and terrace create a create a dramatic living space in harmony with its natural surroundings. Fully original and modernized in consultation with Gwathmey, the home features unique design elements like the oversized stucco chimney, separate storage building, spiral staircase, marble dining table, and built-in cabinetry and furniture that complete the geometric composition. Despite the modest footprint, this airy and transparent home makes a big statement yet still offers opportunities to expand. Meticulously maintained in excellent vintage condition, this is a rare chance to own an early work from Gwathmey’s most creative period. Includes architect’s drawings, correspondences, and ephemera.
Originally dubbed Maidstone by the Puritans who settled in 1648, East Hampton's Main Street and tree-lined lanes are dotted with preserved homes spanning several eras and styles.
