Set on an exceptionally deep and private half acre south of the highway in Water Mill, this 6 bedroom shingle-clad traditional with handsome black trim embraces a style of local agrarian charm improved by modern flourishes. The thoughtfully designed home begins with a welcoming living room with fireplace, high ceilings, and five-inch oak floors. An open kitchen and dining area with Wolf range, Subzero refrigerator and wine cooler has sliding French doors that lead to a lovely covered porch with bluestone patio running the width of the house. The adjacent sitting room has a pair of French doors that open to a heated portion of the covered porch overlooking heated gunite pool, crepe myrtle specimen trees, and ample swaths of cleared space for outdoor play. A generous guest suite completes the main level. On the second level, the voluminous master bedroom with fireplace, walk-in closet, and jaunty roofline benefits from a set of three skylights for abundant natural light. The sizable marble master bath offers dual vanities, bath, and shower. Three additional en suite guest bedrooms round out the second level. The finished lower level with separate entry features a guest bedroom suite, half bath, recreation area, and wood-paneled wine room. This Energy Star HERS-rated home is equipped with geothermal heating and air-conditioning and home audio system. Close proximity to Water Mill destinations like Soulcycle, Tracy Anderson, Suki Zuki, and the Hampton Jitney.
Water Mill has possibly the most geographical/geological/topographical diversity of any Hamptons hamlet as expanses of farmland give way to woodlands and hills with enough elevation to offer spectacular views of the island. Water Mill attracts the creative class and is home to the Water Mill Center, a world renowned interdisciplinary laboratory for the arts and humanities created by Robert Wilson. The hamlet has one of the highest median home values in New York State.
