Real Estate Showcase - Hamptons and the East End

BAY WATCH

While the Hamptons have become synonymous with celebrity sightings and all things chic, there will always be the tranquil, get-away-from-it-all Hamptons—as epitomized by this spectacular waterfront sanctuary on Mecox Bay in Water Mill. The contemporary-style home was designed in the 1970s by Joe Bahri, an apprentice of Philip Johnson. It features a sunken living room with 30ft ceilings and a dining room with waterfront views; an office and paneled library can easily be transformed into a bedroom suite. The master BR encompasses the entire second floor, with magnificent water views from the terrace. “This isn’t a party house,” says Elliot Epstein of Sotheby’s International Realty. “It’s for the couple or family who really want to have their privacy—it’s on one of the most beautiful, quiet blocks in the Hamptons.” Lush landscaping and an octagonal gunite pool add to the serene setting. The separate pool suite designed by Francis Fleetwood is an added luxury. $6.9 million.

  LET THE SUN SHINE IN

The magical light on Long Island’s East End has been one of its famed attractions ever since it began to be a destination at the turn of the 20th century—and this contemporary North Haven Point house is designed to take full advantage. Pale-hued floors and walls have been chosen to reflect the changing moods of sunlight. There are 5 BRs and 5.5 bths, most with windows that take in the landscaped lawns and gardens. The living room boasts soaring cathedral ceilings, and practically bursts with daylight from three dramatic floor-to-ceiling French doors that open out to an in-ground pool with heart-melting inlet views. The custom kitchen features every amenity a gourmet cook could want. The formal dining room and library with fireplace is equally perfect for a cool summer night or a snowy winter afternoon. $7.9 million.

  DESIGNER’S DESIGNER LIVING

It’s one thing to buy a designer home. It’s quite another to buy the designer’s home. Renowned interior tastemaker Nancy Corzine—who counts Donald Trump, Madonna and Brad Pitt as clients—is currently selling her stately Bridgehampton home (nestled on 3.5 acres of rolling green lawns). Says Corey Bezerman, the Prudential Douglas Elliman broker handling the sale, “This is a magnificent custom-built house with attention paid to every detail.” The double-height foyer leads to an equally dramatic living room featuring rare 6”-wide Brazilian cherry floors and gorgeous custom finishes. A wall of French doors opens onto the veranda, creating enough dining space for up to 80 guests. The gourmet kitchen is outfitted with natural crushed crystal countertops that won’t crack or chip. 7 BRs and 10 windowed bths all have views of either the garden, the Olympic-sized gunite pool or the tennis court. $8.95 million.

“The market in the Hamptons right now is somewhat mixed. The $8 million-plus market appears to be the strongest,” says Kevin Sneddon, CEO of investment brokerage company Project Real Estate. “For the market below $8 million, there appears to be more price sensitivity—with buyers waiting on the sidelines for price corrections, and meanwhile taking a harder look at the combined quality and value of the product.”
