A beautiful winding driveway sets the stage for this very private gated hilltop estate nestled on 3.65 acres midway between Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor. Designed by architect John Laffey, this well-built shingle-style home incorporates exquisite stonework and mature landscaping. It features more than 8,550 +/- sq.ft. of living space in the main house and two accessory buildings. Despite the home’s scale, the rooms are intimate, exuding warmth and casual elegance. The foyer leads to a light-filled two story living room with a mahogany-framed window wall overlooking the pool and pool house. Off the living room is a media room with fireplace, and a junior master suite currently used as an office, with a full marble bath and custom walk-through closet. Sharing the living room’s two-sided fireplace is the elegant dining and kitchen area. The kitchen features custom-designed cabinetry, Carrara marble island, and dark-stained lacquered oak countertops. Appliances are by Wolf, Sub-Zero and Bosch. Outdoor dining with a built-in barbecue is adjacent. A butler’s pantry with wine cooler and ice maker and a mudroom complete the floor. Upstairs, French doors lead to the five-room master suite’s sitting room with fireplace, bedroom with mahogany deck overlooking the pool, and magnificent marble bath featuring radiant-heated flooring, double vanity, frameless glass shower and Bain Ultra tub. A custom dressing room and walk-in closet complete the suite. Down a spacious hallway are two en-suite guest rooms with a shared balcony. Opposite is a laundry room and just beyond is the exercise room. On the south side of the porte cochere, is a private guest apartment, with a living room, kitchenette, bedroom with walk-in closet, and a full marble bath. A staircase leads to a private outside entrance and to the two-car garage. A three-story carriage house is linked to the main house via a covered stone terrace. A private two-room suite with kitchenette and full bath is on the top floor. A foyer, bicycle room and 3-car garage is on the driveway level. And a wood shop and second laundry are on the lower level. The property, with room for tennis, enjoys a heated gunite pool with automatic cover and a spa with independent systems enabling differing months of operation. The pool house offers an entertainment area, powder room and dressing room.
