Quogue is among the more traditional of the Hamptons: down shady lanes, tall privet hedges hide traditional mansions. Until now, that is. A hipper, younger crowd will be very drawn to this new build, by Bridgehampton’s Barnes Coy Architects. Simple rectangular volumes are punctuated by interesting fenestration, creating a minimalist yet compelling look.
The house, which is creekfront/canalfront (just kayak to the bay!), is set on 1.1 acres of land. Landscape designer John Ewing has created grounds that are as low-key as the house, with mostly lawn and a specimen tree or beach grass here and there. With no tall privet, there are 360 degree views. Of course there’s a heated pool and spa, with a glass-box pool house with lounge area and bath.
Inside, there’s 6000 square feet of room with six bedrooms, all en-suite. Of course all the latest smart-home technology is included, making for an easy-to-run, greener home. We particularly like the kitchen with its long polished white island and Tom Dixon pendant lights, simple yet intriguing.
The property is represented by Marcia Altman at Brown Harris Stevens. The best part is the price: $6.75 million, far less than the $20 million plus this residence might command east of the canal.
