A touch of the south of France, a bit of the English countryside and 100% Amagansett, this very special property is waiting for the next family to love it. A long driveway leads to a gravel courtyard and the wisteria-covered entrance of this beautifully crafted European villa hidden on 2 exquisite acres overlooking agricultural reserve. Utterly charming and stylish, this home was designed by two artists as their private family retreat, with generously proportioned rooms, gorgeous finishes and all the bells and whistles needed for happy country living. There's not another house in view, but the place is still in very close proximity to Balsam Farms, Amagansett Main Street, and Indian Wells ocean beach. The first floor of the home's 4000 square feet of artfully arranged space includes an office or den with a private terrace, a large vaulted living room with a two-sided fireplace, and an open great room and kitchen, all light-filled, with access to outdoor lounging and entertaining spaces. Another smaller office, a powder room and a workroom that could be an artist's studio complete the first level. The second level contains the master bedroom and its luxurious glass-walled bath, as well as four additional family and guest bedrooms and a sunbathing deck overlooking the grounds. Gardens and specimen trees planted over the years add to the magic, and create a lovely view from every room. In addition to the 20 x 40 gunite pool, the grounds contain a potting shed, an outdoor shower, and four terraces. Attention to details and conveniences like moulding, antique doors and hardware, Italian casement windows, 10' plank flooring, Viking appliances and an emergency generator make this home truly special. If you are tired of seeing the same generic house over and over, this house with soul is a must-see!
