The award-winning architect, Michael Haverland, has said, “One of the most important aspects of true Modernism is simplicity and economy of construction.” Haverland and co-owner, Philip Galanes, proved this to be true with their creation at 73 Cove Hollow Road in East Hampton.
The piece that resulted from their collaboration features glass, steel, and stucco. The home has been published in many impressive magazines and was included in the Museum of Modern Art’s tour of iconic houses in East Hampton.
Now, that the property is on the market it could soon be yours. Cee Scott Brown and Jack Pearson of Compass have listed this livable work of art at $5.95 million.
Sitting on just under one acre the home offers three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms in 3,800 square feet. However, the property is pushed up against a six-acre reserve that creates the illusion of more acreage.
The exterior of the home is just as strategically planned as the interior. The home is situated on a deep flag lot meaning it cannot be seen from the road. The placement of the main structure on the lot is designed for optimal lighting at all hours of the day and created a large front lawn as well. The interior boasts Turkish travertine floors in all public spaces and custom-milled mahogany flooring in the bedrooms.
The first floor offers an open kitchen, a dining room with free-standing panels, and a naturally lit living room. Included is also a library with antique oak doors. The owners salvaged a lot of the original hardware, doors, and sinks.
Other structures on the property include a 600 square foot studio and garage, a pool house, and art and work sheds. Near the heated, saltwater lap pool is a patio that overlooks the yard. For those looking to make a unique, artistic purchase this home may be for you.
