With a coveted address in the heart of the old estate section deep in Bridgehampton South less than a mile to the ocean, this Balinese-style estate designed by Peter Cook and built by Glen Web features a heated, gunite pool, elegant pool house cabana, and a 2-car garage, situated on a simply enchanting 3.36 +/- acres landscaped by Ed Hollander. Mature, specimen trees and hedges foster world away privacy while a bucolic meadow complements the expansive lawn. Landscape lighting creates an alluring nightscape. Adorned with decorative crestings, the beautifully flared hip roof showcases graceful proportions on the exterior that connote a traditional longhouse. Soaring cathedral ceilings clad in rich, cherry wood and walls of Venetian plaster and glass make for open, voluminous interior spaces. The living room with central fireplace gives way to a raised formal dining room and eat-in kitchen with counter seating, shaker cabinets, butcher block island and stainless appliances. A wet bar leads to the rounded sitting room with powder bath, motorized shades, and French doors to the rear grounds. An airy screened porch with sitting and dining area brings the tranquil grounds inside. At the end of the three-bedroom wing, the bright and generous master suite reigns supreme with walk-in closets, a gas fireplace, charming window seating, and a luxurious bath with a soaker tub and shower. One guest suite opens to the dreamy screened porch and the other ground level guest suite is decorated by trompe l’oeil accent molding by an artisan painter. The second level houses a guest bedroom suite, highlighted by custom, patterned doors and a lavish marble bath. The partially finished lower level adds additional recreation space. Home amenities include radiant heated floors, a central vacuum system, and temperature and humidity controlled home automation. Festooned with roses and flowering vines, the photogenic pool house has a wet bar equipped with refrigerator and dishwasher and a changing room with full bath and free-standing soaker tub. Listed for sale for the first time in the property’s history, rare opportunity to own an architecturally intriguing estate on one of Bridgehampton’s most desirable lanes.
Named for the bridge built across Sagg Pond in 1686 by Ezekiel Sandford, Bridgehampton is known for horse farms, auto racing, and its very own soil classification, the Bridgehampton loam. Equestrians delight in the Hampton Classic horse show and gearheads pay homage to the legendary track with the Bridgehampton Antique Car Road Ralley.
