Near Ocean: Bates Masi Modern, Amagansett
5 BR | 7BA | 3,000 SF | $9,950,000 | WEB 877598
A stunning achievement by iconic modernist architects Bates Masi, this elegant home built in 2017 was inspired by its seaside setting and all its natural splendor. Less than one block from the ocean beach, the sophisticated design perfectly balances indoor and outdoor living spaces, taking full advantage of seemingly endless views of the ocean and surrounding nature preserve. Spanning 3,000 square-feet of smartly constructed living spaces, with five bedrooms and 7 baths, the property also includes a separate guest cottage with kitchen and living room space. The main house is infused with natural light, with glass walls surrounding nearly the entirety of the central living space on the second level. This open layout includes a living room, dining room, and stunning kitchen. European white oak floors and ceilings are accented by exposed steel beams. The chef”s kitchen features fully integrated appliances including Thermador refrigerator and freezer, Miele dishwasher, as well as Gaggenau stove and cooktop. An absolutely beautiful, minimalistic space with well thought-out custom touches throughout. The south side of the kitchen opens onto the deck featuring an outdoor, built-in kitchen and a lookout deck. Elegant and seamless, the indoor and outdoor spaces provide a great setting to entertain by the ocean. The north side of the great room leads to the roof deck with stairs down to the pool area. Here, an elevated lawn and mahogany decking surround a 28” by 10” gunite swimming pool and lead back inside through a custom pocket glass door into the first level family room. Serviced by a kitchenette including a Sub-Zero under the counter fridge, the space continues the design theme of combining indoor and outdoor spaces. The first level is completed by 3 en suite bedrooms, including the luxurious master suite with its own private deck, laundry room, and half bath. The property also showcases a spacious and private 2-bedroom, 1.5 bath guest cottage with its own deck. This open concept floor plan features a living area and kitchen with Gaggenau, Sub-Zero, and Miele appliances as well as the same European white oak cabinets, flooring and ceilings found in the main home. Amenities include 2 outdoor showers, 1 outdoor foot-wash (for when you return from the beach), state-of-the-art smart home systems including a built-in audio/visual system extending to all common areas, master bedroom, and roof decks as well as controlled lighting by Lutron. Although completely modern in its aesthetic and construction, the home is directly tied to local history – inspired in part by the nearby historic Life Saving Station, used for generations to provide lookout and rescue boats for shipwrecked sailors. The strength and durability of construction and materials, the open spaces and multiple levels of views, as well as its response to the surrounding environment, are all thoughtful reminders of its historic neighbor. From the architectural design aspect to the excellent, nearly on the ocean location 159 Atlantic Avenue represents one of the finest properties available for sale in Amagansett South.
