The Hamptons are hot, as city dwellers search for an escape. For those with deep pockets, there’s always a way to beat the heat.
Which brings us to a modern vacation home with beachfront bragging rights that’s waded onto the market for $52 million. The price tag makes it this week’s most expensive new listing on realtor.com®.
The spectacular spread is set behind a gated entry in Wainscott, NY. The oceanside edifice offers 230 feet of beachfront.
It’s located close to the storied Kilkare estate, which snagged the honor of most expensive listing back in 2017, when it landed on the market for $55 million.
The property sold in 2015 for $16.5 million, and construction on this home was completed in 2018. The modern home is described in the listing details as a “flawless symphony of architecture, construction, landscape design, and interior composition.”
We’ll agree the teak and stucco structure hits all the right notes. The unique residence designed by Barnes Coy Architects is connected by “three pavilions,” linked by stairways and elongated passageways.
The angular abode features an inverted V-shaped roof. Inside, the bold lines continue with an “inverted teak pyramid” that comes within 9 feet of the floor, according to the firm’s website.
The interior also offers 22-feet ceilings, walls of glass, and dramatic beach views.
With 11,000 square feet of living space, the layout includes six bedrooms and 10.5 baths. The main pavilion incorporates the open kitchen, which is a true chef’s delight. It’s highlighted by Gaggenau, Sub-Zero, and Miele appliances, as well as a large center island. The kitchen looks out to the dining and living space of the great room.
On the other end of the residence, there’s a den/office that leads to the master wing. The master retreat features ocean views, dual bathrooms, and a pair of walk-in closets. A third pavilion encompasses the additional five bedrooms, a rec room, and a four-car garage.
Down one level, you’ll find the gym, as well as a spa bath with steam and sauna.
The mansion also houses a golf simulator (which could be converted to a home theater), two staff suites, and an atrium entry with an elevator. The Crestron-controlled smart home features Lutron lighting, automatic shades, and a Sonos sound system, as well as a whole-house generator.
Outside, the expansive 2.33 acres offer an “eccentrically shaped” deck and 72-foot pool, including a submerged spa.
The oceanfront grounds were left as wild as possible, the listing notes. The ipe-clad deck features a covered area with an outdoor kitchen, dining table, and seaside living room. The property also includes a private walkway over the dune to the beach.
