  WATERFRONT SPLENDOR

It is said that the sunrises and sunsets on LI’s East End are unlike any other on the East Coast. This 4,800sf contemporary home on Gardiners Bay in East Hampton will make you want to be around for both dawn and dusk. The custom-designed home features 4 BRs including a three-room master suite, plus a convertible study, 3 bths, a billiards room, a home theater and three fireplaces.

There are 22ft ceilings throughout and, in a nice contrast to the modern feel of the home, it has beautiful wideboard flooring in original pine from a 150-year-old barn. Owners can enjoy a sunset (or sunrise) soak in the waterfront hot tub before heading down the steps that lead to a wide sandy beach. To complete the picture-perfect outdoor lifestyle, there is a private marina less than a block away. This is an exclusive listing. Priced at $4.75 million.

LONG BEACH: SoBe IT!

How to best describe The Meridian, a new 36-unit luxury condominium soon to open on Long Beach? “It’s like being in South Beach, but closer to the water,” says Michael Shvo, president of Shvo Marketing, marketing agent for the building. Literally steps from the Atlantic, the seven-story building offers spectacular ocean views, and is a mere 45-minute commute to Manhattan.

These 1 and 2BRs range in size from 1,200 to 1,900 sf. Open layouts and floor-to-ceiling windows maximize light. Kitchens feature black granite countertops, black mosaic backsplashes, Kohler fixtures and GE Profile appliances. The lobby, designed by Andres Escobar, emphasizes the light and expansiveness of the waterfront.

Technology will play a big part in The Meridian’s appeal. All units include video intercoms and are pre-wired for remote activation of electronics including the AC… “So when you get home, the lights can be on and the apartment already cool,” says Shvo. Priced from about $950,000.

  BROWNSTONE TECH.

The Preserve at Woodbury, an enclave of 32 luxury townhomes, is the newest comer to this thriving LI community. Inspired by classic Manhattan brownstones, these three-floor spreads, with 3 BRs plus study and 3.5 bths, feature full chef’s kitchens with stainless-steel appliances, Kohler fixtures, granite countertops and maple cabinets. “These are kitchens for serious cooks, not just for show,” says Malcolm Koubel, controller for Pinewood Development Corp., which is responsible
for the project.

Perhaps the biggest draw for residents will be The Club at The Preserve. It includes a gym, racquetball court, media room, card room and party room. A built-in intranet service enables residents to communicate with each other and the Clubhouse via a touch-screen console in their homes. “If someone needs a racquetball partner, or wants to reserve the media room for a party, they can use this technology,” Koubel says. Occupancy is scheduled for late spring. $1.2 million to $1.6 million.

“Long Island is such hot market, and it’s really showing very little sign of slowing down,” says Steven Klar, president of East Meadow-based development firm The Klar Organization. “Though the bidding war phenomenon has softened somewhat, prices continue to go up. The only issue is having enough land to satisfy demand!”
