1.5 miles to the ocean in a park-like setting, this beautifully appointed home is fully updated for 2018. Redesigned by award-winning architect William S. Leeds, the 8000 sq. ft. home (5500 upstairs + 2300 below), is finished to the "nines," saving the buyer over $1M on customizations, technology upgrades and landscaping versus a typical new construction. And for those who want truly turnkey, the home is available with all the new furnishings for an additional $500,000. This South-of-the-Highway offering is unique--fully updated, near beach and village, on a quiet cul de sac, south-facing for sun exposure, and replete with a million-dollar landscape package that would be tough to find at any price. Inside, the home features a show-stopping, two-story living room, with a dramatic 20' glass tower. Completing the first floor are an enormous Chef's Kitchen (with breakfast or family room), Formal Dining with French doors, and a 1st Floor Master with Sitting Room/Office. Upstairs, the home offers two wings--a main wing with 3 bedrooms plus a guest wing with large office and 5th bedroom--offering privacy for extended family, guests or fortunate staff. A walk-out lower level features a large family room, media area, stunning 1200-bottle wine cellar, and large gym. An elaborate technology system controls lighting, heating/cooling, pool, hot tub, front door, alarm, TV surround sound, and a music system with 30 speakers. The property was formerly owned by a celebrated Hamptons nursery owner and landscape designer and features over 100 specimen trees and plants, including some of the most gorgeous mature trees and flowering landscape on any Hamptons property. A stunning 40x20 gunite pool with overflowing hot tub, screened gazebo, firepit, covered and uncovered porches, and outdoor barbecue provide everything one might desire in an outdoor experience. For the discerning South-of-the-Highway buyer who wants it all, this is a unique offering that won't last.
