Matthews Lane: a James Michael Howard 7 Bedroom, 11,000 SF Estate for Rent

Informed by an aesthetic that transcends the centuries while celebrating the best of what’s new, Matthews Lane joins the growing resume of highly styled, fully furnished Hampton estates by James Michael Howard, the renowned ICAA award-winning designer, that exemplify coherency in the abstract world of architecture, interiors and the landscape that contain them. In collaboration with McAlpine-Tankersley Architecture and Landscape Details, the visionary Howard created a 7 bedroom residence that spans 11,600 SF on three levels of fully articulated living space that is now available for various time frames for Summer 2024 rent.

The head swiveling journey begins as you pass through the reception hall arriving in the dramatic great room, under 30 ft. beamed ceilings, which incorporates multiple seating areas, dining room and gallery, all warmed by a custom fireplace that anchors the room while walls of windows allow for an abundance of natural light. The state of the art, eat-in kitchen, with 10 seat breakfast area, is warmed by its own fireplace. Additional common spaces include the media room and an intimate living room. The 1st floor master wing with sitting area, fireplace and luxurious bath is joined upstairs by 4 guest suites including a secondary master with roof terrace. The bedrooms are purposely positioned so that none have common walls. An elevator connects all floors to the lower level with two more bedroom suites, a state-of-the-art theater with plush 16-person seating, bar, gym and large recreation room with fireplace and custom billiards table. Geo-thermal heating, Control4 technology, Lutron lighting and a full audio/visual package add to the property’s list of amenities. The lush, manicured grounds behind stone walls, including specimen trees, espalier apples and verdant lawn are enhanced by the heated pool and spa serviced by a covered cabana area that incorporates the pool house with full bath and dressing room, outdoor fireplace and built-in kitchen which connects over broad stone patios to the two-car garage.. Turnkey to the extreme, Matthews Lane lies midway between village and ocean beaches off Bridgehampton’s iconic Ocean Road and close to everything that makes the Hamptons a world class resort.
