Real Estate Showcase - Hamptons/East End


This exquisite 5BR, 5.5bth modern home on prestigious Further Lane in East Hampton takes waterfront living to a whole new level. Nearly every room in the recently redone, 4,700sf home boasts magnificent Atlantic views. The tropically-inspired, much-coveted property has been featured in House & Garden. A long private driveway takes you through lushly treed grounds which open out to your own secluded Shangri-la. In fact, says Sotheby’s listing agent Marie Zazzi, the outdoor space is “like a Caribbean resort… The surroundings are as stunning as the house itself!” An outdoor living room with fireplace overlooks the negative-edge pool (facing the sea), with enough seating to throw completely fabulous summer soirées. The luscious feasts you’ll share, inspired by the spectacular gourmet kitchen (complete with Viking appliances), can be easily worked off in the fully equipped, high-tech indoor gym. Cutting-edge smart-house technology throughout means lights, thermostats, the pool, and even music, can all be controlled with the flick of a switch.
$18 million.




When does a lovely old summer cottage become a grand English manor? When the top-drawer team of Hollenbeck and Smith Architects and interior designer Alexander Baer get into the act. They have transformed this original East Hampton home into a 5BR, 5.5bth paradise that combines all the old-world charms with modern-day amenities. The kitchen/den, in addition to having a fireplace, boasts sleek stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops and white bead-board cabinets. The living room is dazzling, with double-height windows and an antique Murano chandelier suspended from the beamed, 35ft peaked ceiling. French doors on one side lead from both living room and kitchen to a 46ft-long shingled, arched mahogany porch. Upstairs, the master bedroom also has beamed ceilings, a fireplace, and a porch with a beautiful view of the sweeping landscaped lawn and pool. All this—complete with the most tasteful finishes and furniture—is priced at $8.5 million.



This wonderful shingled home in Amagansett is one of those rare places that’s brilliantly set-up to accommodate a big, noisy family. Aside from the fact that it’s an easy walk to the beach, its interior (with 4 BRs and 4.5 bths) has 4,000 sf of beautifully laid-out space. “The flowing floor plan is such that each room on the main level melts into the next,” says Kim Hovey, listing agent for the property and president of The Lamb Agency. The kitchen looks over the breakfast room, which is right next to the family room with a fireplace… A great room with coffered ceilings leads to a mahogany screened porch. The inviting gourmet kitchen, with marble countertops and backsplashes, features two Bosch dishwashers and two sinks. Making it all the more irresistible, the heated gunite pool with pergola, terrace and brick fireplace, promises seasons of pleasure for years to come. $3.65 million.

“It seems that buyers are waiting a little longer to see if prices are going to come down,” says Donna Oplinger, associate broker for Allan Schneider Associates. “The Hamptons are still a healthy market, but buyers are no longer offering asking price or more. We anticipate that sellers will have to put appropriate prices on their homes—and be willing to negotiate.”
