Evoking the jet set aesthetic popularized by photographer Slim Aarons, this meticulously renovated 5,000+/- square foot, 5 bedroom midcentury estate on 1.9+/- acres in the Georgica Pond enclave has a restored marble and tile 55 foot saltwater pool and spa, oversized pool house, and a beautiful grass tennis court – a rare find in East Hampton Village. An extensive renovation by Form Architects modernized the home while preserving the timeless layout of voluminous common spaces drenched in natural light from abundant skylights and clerestory windows. Iconic midcentury furnishings by notable designers Vladimir Kagan, Karl Springer, and C Jere conjure a bygone era. An airy entry foyer leads to the grand living room with fireplace and sliding French doors that open to the stone patio overlooking the pool, pool house, and charming grounds with mature landscaping and 50 year-old specimen trees. A sitting room connects the living room to the sun room which is flanked by the drawing room and dining room. The updated kitchen features white corian countertops, Subzero refrigerator, wine refrigerator, and induction cooktop. The master wing has a spacious dressing room, lavish master bath and bedroom with pool access. A guest suite adorned with vintage Bob Collins wallpaper and a powder bath complete the main level. Upstairs, a pair of guest suites with mirrored terraces overlook the grass tennis court. The finished lower level has a legal guest bedroom perfect for staff. House updates include new wood shingle roof, new electric wiring, Sonos sound inside and out, alarm system, and Flo Logic leak detection system. Rare opportunity to own the largest parcel on its street in a prime Georgica Pond location with established landscaping, grass tennis, pool house, and an elegantly remastered midcentury estate.
