Westhampton Beach-the Estate$4,990,000
Modern luxuries and effortless Hamptons sophistication come together perfectly in this 7,057 sq.ft. estate in the heart of Westhampton Beach on Beach Lane, one of the most sought after addresses in the Village. The very private 1.93-acre property takes every advantage of the mature landscaping with a centerpiece Copper Beech Tree, valued by those in the know as "priceless." Redesigned and reconstructed by Hamptons Habitat, an award-winning design firm respected across the East End for their superior craftsmanship and flawless attention to detail, the stately shingled home features 6 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, and one half bath with specially sourced marble and glass tiles, and extra rooms perfect for use as an office/den or playroom. Upstairs, the master suite takes in the views through two sets of French doors and enjoys a private balcony, perfect for a morning coffee. On the main floor of the home hardwood floors traverse the space connecting the living room, large Chef's kitchen with breakfast room, and dining room with further sets of French doors that open to the sprawling covered porches. The designers added custom seaweed wallpaper to the kitchen and dining room, unique and elegant. The finished lower level of the post-modern house is an ideal game room with a large screen projection theater area. Several sumptuous and distinctive outdoor entertaining spaces are what make this property so special beginning with the open-air cabana, a covered space with grand fireplace near the pool. The custom designed J. Tortorella Swimming Pools gunite pool and stone patio surrounds beckon guests to take a dip and relax in the sun. For those looking to work on their serve a tennis court is ready and waiting. Covered porches on both sides of the house are spacious and ideal for outdoor dining. History aficionados will appreciate the windmill, a graceful three-story tower that functions today as a hideaway of sorts. A separate, detached garage with rolling barn doors completes the property. Of note, the home was a backdrop in "Rocket Gibraltar" the 1988 film starring Burt Lancaster and featuring Patricia Clarkson, Kevin Spacey, and Macaulay Caulklin.
