12,000 SF Private Home
East Hampton, New York, USA
A two-story estate set on a coastal dune in the town of East Hampton is inspired by the utilitarian barn structures of the context’s agrarian past. Volumetrically and programmatically essential, the structure is situated and configured to optimize views of garden and sea while becoming an aperture for the mystical light of the Long Island Coast. The house comprises 4 bedrooms with private baths, 1 master suite with fireplace, two full sized kitchens (service and display kitchens), 4 individually programmed terraces, a playroom, library, drawing room, a two-story guesthouse/ pool cabana with an underground wine cellar, spa, and indoor pool built into the dune. The property is set within a picturesque landscape of formal and natural gardens featuring a grass tennis court, motor courts, carriage house, orangerie, and pond.
