On the Cover…Sagaponack Farmhouse Splendor
Among the highlights within the farmhouse are original barn timber, gorgeous handpicked reclaimed Pennsylvania pine floors and millwork throughout, as well as metal doors from a Brooklyn firehouse affixed with hardware from a Pennsylvania train station. All of the unique reclaimed wood, fixtures, hardware and finish details were thoughtfully curated by the homeowners and master local builder and restorer Bob Tortora. The home is complete with 4 large bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms and exquisite custom touches throughout, including a private oversized master suite with two full baths and office/lounge area on the upper level. The main floor is bathed in natural light boasting a giant glassed-in living area surrounded by an open modern kitchen plan and a cozy den with full laundry and linen room and the three ensuite guest bedrooms. The expansive lower level with high ceilings is the perfect place to create substantial additional living and entertaining space, if required, to suit anyone’s needs.
Here, with the sound of the ocean in the background, an effortless Sagaponack lifestyle unfolds with old growth trees around the property and in the back, a chicken coop modern structure which is home to a rare sunken indoor 55ft lap pool with electric cover and Desert Aire System, sauna and full bath. From the indoor pool, enjoy views to the outdoor relaxation gunite pool and lounging area overlooking endless farmland. The front and back of the property are bracketed by fields of wildflowers and privet to the East giving the home complete privacy. Back inside the main Barn, one is met by soaring vaulted ceilings, large metal and glass door systems, and a gracious open sun-drenched floorplan. Radiant heated floors, steel windows, exposed beams, and an abundance of reclaimed materials create a minimalist yet modern feel for the ultimate Hamptons retreat with a wide variety of windows providing cross-breezes in every direction. Additional upgrades include geo-thermal heating and cooling, plus a full-house generator for backup power, special HVAC filtration and irrigation systems.
Secluded in one of the area’s most historic and desirable enclaves, this Sagaponack gem is sited just minutes from the East Hampton airport, with easy access to the Hampton Jitney, and only minutes from Town Line, Gibson and Peter’s Pond beaches.
