On prized Meadow Lane, this ultra elegant and sophisticated traditional beach residence comprised of 3.35 acres and over 9,000+ square feet, commands 360-degree unobstructed views of both the glistening Atlantic Ocean and sparkling Shinnecock Bay.
This vast, elegant, and thoroughly time honored Hamptons village estate seamlessly incorporates what any mogul could wish for in an estate home consisting of eminently livable areas with 6 bedrooms and 9.5 baths; a home appropriate for family and social gatherings of any size, or intimate dinners with friends and business associates. It is in close proximity to New York City and one mile from Southampton’s Heliport.
Tim Davis, Licensed real estate Broker for Corcoran Group Real Estate, says of this place of sophistication: “The home is constructed on three levels and was curated by Steven Gambrel, preeminent international Hamptons based design firm who creates interiors that are ‘simultaneously familiar and yet unexpected,’ as depicted here by the thoughtful, most elegant interiors that incorporate the personal comfort of the home’s occupants and provides privacy at the same time. Sun-filled, light and bright, the hues of the interiors reflect the serene grays, whites, and pastel tones that give the beachside estate such a spacious, yet gracious feel.”
The interiors of the first level open onto expansive patios. The views look across the dramatic pool and spa, manicured grounds, and magnificent ocean. The home is positioned back from the dunes so that nothing blocks the views while the quiet beach has no direct public access. The other side of the house faces clear views of the bay.
The stained polished wood floors welcome one and all into a great room, formal dining room, and family room, all with their own fireplaces. Stone counters and state-of-the-art appliances adorn the kitchen ready for the most persnickety of chefs. On the same level, a large ocean-facing guest bedroom suite is anchored to another facing the blue bay.
An elegant spiral stairway – or an elevator if you wish to use it – leads to the heavenly second level that invites one to a superb west facing master bedroom wing that one could simply stay in all day. A fireplace and ocean side deck, walk-in closets, and a gleaming marble bath engulf your senses. The east wing finds three guest suites – each elegant and large and designed to perfection – along with an out-of-sight laundry room that is convenient for housekeeping purposes. This second floor is simply a pleaser of a level that becomes nearly legendary for its superb comfort. Guests and family can have the privacy that is necessary – the answer from a design perspective is to give enough space for anyone on a wing that guests can enjoy stretching out in; an area that complements the rest of the home from top to bottom.
Speaking of bottom, the beachfront lower level is full of wondrous features such as a media recreation room, gym, three full baths, a wine cellar, additional laundry facilities and a wet bar. Slip into exercise garments for a solid workout, followed by any number of games to keep young and old occupied or stretch back to see a favorite film with guests. The adult beverage sipping and tasting also may begin in the grand wine cellar. For larger gatherings, everyone can linger in the expansive covered patio while grazing on appetizers or dinner, along with favorite libations serviced from the wet bar.
This residence offers so very much both inside and out – and its lay of the land includes a private wooden walkway that leads past glorious flora and fauna to approximately 200 feet of pristine ocean beach – while to the north, a dedicated dock meets Shinnecock Bay and can display a variety of watercraft such as a kayak, canoe, sailboat, motor boat, or other forms of water sports. “One of the more unique elements of living here is that the private dock is a definite rarity. Only a handful of properties in this area can meet this criteria,” explained Tim Davis.
Classic, comfortable, and clearly unique – These are the distinguishing characteristics of this pristine estate.
