Minutes from ocean beaches in a prime Sagaponack South location on Erica's Lane, this shingled beach house offers voluminous interiors awash in natural light, a cupola observatory with farm views, and expansive rear grounds with heated, gunite pool, half court basketball and verdant lawns on 1.24 hedged acres. Designed to capture the famed Hamptons light, the great room with soaring cathedral ceiling has a wall of glass formed by sliding French doors and clerestory windows that follow the pitch of the roof. The space features a living room with fireplace and dining area with access to the wraparound alfresco dining deck. The modern kitchen with top of the line finishes and appliances has a breakfast area, substantial pantry and adjacent sitting area with fireplace, all overlooking the idyllic rear grounds. An en suite guest bedroom and powder room complete the main level. Three bedrooms are found upstairs including the master suite with balcony. A third level landing inside the cupola observatory provides 360 degree views of the estates and farm fields of Daniel’s Lane. The finished lower level has a full bath. Attached two car garage. An architecturally intriguing and fully modernized beach house with an enviable address and room to expand.
Renown for farming and named with the Shinnecock Indian Nation’s word for potato, Sagaponack began in 1656 when Josiah Stanborough built its first home. The desirable combination of farm field vistas and beach vibes made Sagaponack the most expensive zip code in the United States in 2009. A handful of notable authors including Truman Capote, Kurt Vonnegut, and George Plimpton once frequented Sagaponack. Although Sagaponack is the most rural of the Hamptons towns, Wolffer Estate Vineyard Wine Stand is the place to be on Friday and Saturday for a gorgeous sunset, wine, and music.
