Real Estate Showcase - Hamptons Sneak Peek



The perfect Hamptons beach house—stylish but unassuming on the outside, impeccable but homey inside—awaits a new owner in Sagaponack. The actor Roy Scheider and his wife, Brenda, about to downsize, built the 5,000-square-foot, five-plus-bedroom beauty in 1994, on one acre and have brought up their children there. Sotheby agent Marilyn Clark cites the 360-degree views of ocean and farm field and adds, “Outside, it’s a wonderful beach cottage, and then one steps inside and says, ‘Oh my gosh, I didn’t imagine this’—it’s filled with light and all-exposed wood, and yet it’s not a bit pretentious.” There are abundant porches and decks, four fireplaces, two-car garage, two outdoor showers, and a variance for a pool. Asking $18,750,000.

Everything about this recently completed modern gives it a can’t-miss tag,not the least its location in the heart of East Hampton town, a short stroll from the shops of Main Street. “It’s a wonderful integration of outdoors and indoors,” says Corcoran senior vice president Elisabeth Mills. The architects have created a sensuous blend of elegance and ease, using a dramatic interplay of light and form. Glass walls, soaring ceilings, natural stone garden baths, bamboo and slate floors, a heated gunite pool with a wall of water—there’s more than a hint of the Far East playing throughout. The 4,630-square-foot house comes with four bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths, and central air. Priced at $3,400,000.

“As the Community Preservation Fund buys up more and more land that it considers environmentally fragile in the Town of East Hampton, the remaining buildable parcels go up in value,” says John D’Agostino, associate broker for Martha Greene Real Estate in Montauk, an East Hampton hamlet. “The buyer gets the benefit of open parkland and a bolstered investment.”
