Jaffe, Fleetwood, Meier, Bates, Gwathmey....... Stern. Among a handful of renowned architects that helped to define the Hamptons in the late 20th Century, Robert A. M. Stern lent his prodigious talent to the design of a palatial receptacle for sun, site and view. Nestled on a 3-acre grassy knoll that stretches to the bucolic waters of Hook Pond with views to the ocean beyond, this sprawling 7,000 SF, 6 bedroom beach house, with its soft, subtle design, exudes a serene mood, recalling lazy, luxuriant summers. Warm rays of sunshine seep through slatted blinds in slashes that shift with the hours. The zig zag angles of the window walls orient the living level on a diagonal to the long axis of the house, designed by Stern to capture views across Hook Pond while the bleached floorboards follow the diagonal flow to the south. The main living room upstairs is light and open, free of determinate walls with bleached wood floors, moldings and columns enriching a neutral palette of white walls and natural materials. Joining that on the 2nd floor is the master wing with its sleeping chamber overlooking the grounds, pond and ocean and a sumptuous, oversized bath featuring an amorphous, meandering winter green tub contrasting with the sensuous cream colored marble floor. A short staircase climbs to a roof deck, perfect for that postprandial cigar as you soak in the views. The ground floor is home to an eat-in kitchen which is more than adequate to service the formal dining room, defined by its bay window and designed for the elegance and glamour of nighttime use. A second living room, dramatic, yet understated, resides on the southern end of the first floor also with expansive views through a series of French doors that allow access to the grounds outside. Just beyond lies a green house and studio space. A separate staff wing is found above the attached 2 car garage. Outside a kaleidoscope of color abounds with specimen trees, colorful plantings, award winning perennial gardens and a sea of lawn stretching down to Hook Pond, much of which can be enjoyed when sitting beside the 40' heated, Gunite pool with spa. And yes, a tennis court could be sunk into this gorgeous 3 acre tableau. And if your tastes dictate a different choice, this spectacular site could accommodate a new, 8,100 SF residence and 1,200 SF accessory structure of your own design. With both Main Beach and village shopping just a short stroll away, plan your own personal tour soon as this eclectic offering is sure to find a new owner in time for Summer 2017.
