We tend not to be crazy about Mediterranean style houses. To us, this style seems really unsuited to our climate, which couldn’t be more different than the hills of Tuscany. We must be getting soft in our old age, because we quite like this one. Or, alternatively, this is a really nice example of this style of house (probably the real explanation).
Rather than a sea of terracotta, as so often with Mediterraneans, this place is light and bright and white, which suits the quality of light we have in the Hamptons better than terracotta. We particularly love the beehive fireplace in the living room, along with the pretty beams. (We’d add some rugs to warm up the tile floors, though.) And while another pet peeve of ours is half-round windows, they look great here as all the interior curves echo their shape.
The house is quite spacious at 5500 square feet, with five bedrooms and four baths. It’s been sensitively updated with the latest security and mechanical technology. Outside, there’s 1.83 acres of land, close to the bay, with a gunite pool and spa, and of course the entrance features a charming fountain. Asking price for the property, repped by Martha Gundersen at Brown Harris Stevens, is $2.95 million. What do you think of the place? Are we getting soft in our old age? Let us know in the comments.
