Nestled on 1.2 private wooded acres within minutes of Amagansett and its ocean beaches, this modern oasis boasts a resort-like setting, with multiple levels of mahogany decking, a salt water pool and air conditioned pool house, chic outdoor shower, and dining deck off the dining room. All the outdoor areas are exquisite for entertaining, seamlessly opening and flowing into the living room and dining room.
As you walk up the steps and enter, you realize that this is a home that brings the outside in. The living room in front of you is lined with multiple glass sliding doors leading to the exterior, and it benefits from a shower of light cascading down from ceiling skylights. In the evening, light dances in the wood-burning fireplace.
The large master bedroom on the main floor has its own fireplace, as well as a wall of glass sliding doors leading out to the deck and pool. You can lie in bed and see the stars.
Around the corner, the newly renovated kitchen incorporates a wide expanse of soapstone counters, stainless steel farm sink, Bosch stove, Bosch dishwasher, and Smeg refrigerator. The dining room is lined with windows and its glass sliding door leads to a spacious dining deck and BBQ.
Upstairs is a surprise. There are two bedrooms with sliding doors and their own long large private deck at the same height as the tops of trees, making it almost feel as if you are in a tree house. Relax in the hammock or lounge chairs on the deck with a good book to enjoy private time. The surprise is the staircase leading you further upwards towards the roof. When you get to the top you find a lovely light-filled room that can be used as a bedroom and office.
In the basement there is a large media room, laundry room, and gym with a door for access to the outside.
At the end of the salt-water heated pool is the pool house which has a sofa that can be opened to be a double bed. The pool house is air conditioned and has a full bathroom.
