In 2006, in the famed Hamptons’ resort town, talented architects incorporated Modernism to Shingle Style to create the ultimate beach compound. The original Shingle Style blossomed as a free-spirited adaptation of the nostalgic spirit of Colonial Revival to the new leisure haunts and recreational pastimes of the privileged members of society in the 1900s. It seems only befitting that this uniquely American style of architecture grace the shores of the Hamptons, today’s escape from city life, and where it arguably all began. The result is this Atterbury Hills Shinnecock Bay Compound – the perfect synthesis of old and new in an incomparable location.
The setting alone for this timeless modern retreat is spectacular: “over two-acres, steps from the pristine beach with unobstructed views to Shinnecock Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. One can enjoy 180-degree coastline views to the east and west, creating unparalleled privacy,” explains the number one broker in The Hamptons, Tim Davis, licensed associate real estate broker for The Corcoran Group.
Merging impeccable design with the latest amenities, this estate is one of the most impressive in the area. The ideal family home or weekend retreat is perfect for entertaining on a large scale thanks to its flowing floor plan. The 9,500-square-foot, eight-bedroom, eight and two-half bathroom compound is a celebration of traditional architecture and elegant minimalism, with a simple material palette that allows the spectacular water views to define the interior. With endless views like this, it’s no surprise that the light-filled home embraces indoor-outdoor living.
The 4-bedroom main house offers spacious, peaceful, creative spaces to live, work, and simply enjoy the good life. Views of over the glittering waters are perfectly framed throughout the living areas. The beautiful eat-in kitchen with state-of-the-art facilities opens an expansive first-floor deck for oceanside al fresco dining. The glamourous master enclave rivals any five-star hotel suite. Ideal for entertaining, the ground floor living area expands out to a spectacular exterior space with all the accoutrements to relish in the ocean breeze and take in the dramatic sunrises and sunsets . Davis notes, “Perched at water’s edge, the large guest-house featuring four bedrooms makes hosting friends and family from out of town a breeze.”
The well-manicured picturesque grounds are equally impressive. The majestic estate makes the most of its expansive grounds, with an all-weather tennis court alongside the heated infinity pool that seemingly melts into the ocean, and direct access to a private dock in the bay. “The newly completed 420 ft. bulkhead ensures that this waterfront gem will stand the test of time,” declares Davis.
This spectacular waterfront property that enjoys uninterrupted sea views, complemented by splendid classical architecture in the heart of the highly sought-after Hamptons, offers style, comfort, and incomparable luxury will make one fortunate buyer truly happy!
