Located close to the ocean, with water views all the way to the beach, this 4,800-square foot house, set on an acre, was originally designed by renowned modernist architect Harry Bates. Formerly known as the John Rand House, it was updated and renovated by Sagaponack Builders last year.
Now back up for sale at $13 million with Susan Breitenbach of Corcoran, the five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom house includes multiple patios and decks, which allow each bedroom to have its own private outdoor space.
After entering the ground-floor foyer, spacious en-suite guest bedrooms, with large windows to enjoy the scenery, are arranged in two wings. There are also laundry rooms located in both wings.
Upstairs, however, is where the action is. (If the stairs are too much for some guests, the house does offer an elevator.) The open floor plan encompasses living, dining and kitchen areas, all with vaulted ceilings and clerestory window. With large island snack bar, the kitchen boasts professional appliances, four sinks, a coffee station and wet bar, and desk area.
The master bedroom, also on this level, also with vaulted ceilings, offers walls of glass that provide spectacular water, sunset, and nature views. There’s also a sitting area, three decks, and a spacious, spa-like bathroom. Completing the second floor, a glass breezeway connects to a large family/media room with a gas fireplace along with a gym that boasts a full bath that allows it to serve as a sixth bedroom.
Looking for some al-fresco relaxing after a hectic week? The water-facing deck on the upper level includes a one-of-a-kind pergola with retractable glass and shade roof, Phantom screens, heaters, and an outdoor kitchen. On the lower level, a loggia with freestanding spa overlooks the waterside swimming pool. Beyond the pool, an expansive lawn leads down to the private duckwalk access to Sam’s Creek, where kayaks and paddle boards can be launched into the bay. In the off seasons, water toys can be stored in the two-car carport, which also has plenty of room for bikes.
Aaaah. Serenity now!
