A newly-built luxury home in Bridgehampton that was listed at $24.995 million has gone into contract after eight months on the market.

The flat-roof modern home at 51 Sandpiper Lane, the personal residence of Joe Farrell, the well-known Hamptons developer, is listed with Vincent Horcasitas at Saunders & Associates.

While it remains to be seen what the property will close at, the 7,422-square-foot house has much to offer. Situated on a 1.3-acre property, it is just one street from the ocean and steps from Straight Beach.

The seven-bedroom and seven-and-a-half-bath house practically redefines indoor-outdoor living in the Hamptons. An elevator goes to the roof deck where there is a full outdoor kitchen, complete with two refrigerators (one for wine), a DCS barbecue, sink and counter seating. Also on the roof deck, which is wrapped in glass rails that have built-in lighting, is a five-hole putting green, a jacuzzi, a fire pit, and lounge.

Nine-foot walnut doors are used throughout the house, which features 11-foot ceilings. A open living area includes a floor to ceiling gas fireplace set in a unique art wall designed in Italy.

A custom Ciuffo kitchen has European-style hand-painted cabinetry, a quartz kitchen island, and high-end appliances like two Sub-Zeros include two freezer drawers, a six-burner Thermador range has a griddle and double ovens, and two Bosch dishwashers. A large glass wine closet with a climate-controlled wine display is a main feature in the open space between the kitchen the living area.

The new owners will surely enjoy the first floor master suite, which boasts a walk-in closet where there is a fridge, ice maker and safe and a second walk-in closet just for shoes. The master bathroom has bookmarked marble flooring, double marble-top vanity, a modern soaking tub, marble shower with linear drains, glass doors, and a private water closet. There is also a Jacuzzi on the terrace off the master bedroom.

In addition to a heated gunite pool and spa, there is an accessory structure that houses an outdoor bar with seating, another kitchen and TV, a massage room, steam room and upstairs bedroom and full bath. The lavish backyard has extensive exterior lighting, illuminating the property at night.

Another newly-built home in Bridgehampton also recently went into contract, this one at 114 Rose Way. The 15,500-square-foot house, situated on 1.56 acres with ocean and pond views, was asking $19.5 million.

“This property epitomizes luxury beachfront living. The developer, Jon Bognacki, consistently brings detail and craftsmanship to every property through exceptional design standards and an unparalleled sense of style. The 114 Rose Way property truly is a testament to his incredible work,” says Sam Kelly, Senior Portfolio Manager at Bespoke, which had the listing.
