This Bridgehampton new-build has pretty much everything anyone could want in a new home–with one thing extra. Check it: there’s a clean-lined trad-transitional style (yes, we just made that term up). Traditional but with modern touches like the simple windows, the modern open-tread staircase, and the clean-lined kitchen (and get a load of the polished nickel range). The butler’s pantry includes a food prep area, so the main kitchen can stay clean for entertaining. (We live in a strange world, folks.) We love the mudroom with cubbies to stow gear–perfect for family living.
There are seven bedrooms, including a first floor junior master suite and an upstairs master suite with gas fireplace, terrace, and two walk-in closets. The master bath includes radiant heated floors, floating vanities, a soaking tub and a frameless glass-enclosed shower with two rain heads and infinity drain. And you know what else? His-and-her johns.
That’s a real lifesaver on chili night! Sadly, there is a solid wall between the two cubicles, so the owners can’t toss rolls of TP to one another while sitting down.
Of course this house includes a tricked-out lower level with a temperature-controlled wine cellar; a walk-out gym; a spa with sauna, steam shower and massage area; a theater with wet bar and powder room; a game room; and two bedrooms with shared bath.
On the 0.7-acre plot of land there’s a 50′ walk-out gunite pool, spa with waterfall, a pool house with bluestone patio and a pergola. The pool house sports a full basement, which hides the pool equipment, and can also be used for storage.
So–how much? Asking price for the property, represented by Thomas Cavallo of Douglas Elliman, is $6.5 million, which would be fine south of the highway, but seems ambitious here. According to the listing, the property is “surprisingly private” and it does seem so with plantings, but basically it’s right next to the Starbucks/Douglas Elliman parking lot, which is indeed handy for walking to shops and restaurants but obviously isn’t the most tony nor quiet location.
