With its low-slung silhouette, the three- or four-bedroom main residence exudes a contemporary style with hints of midcentury modern design. Its sleek spaces include living and dining rooms in an enfilade configuration, a den, and a chic kitchen with streamlined cabinetry and counters, an island, a breakfast area, and a bar with glass shelves and a wine chiller. Natural light is gentle yet ever present, thanks in large part to numerous clerestory windows. The monochromatic palette allows décor, art, and views to take center stage. The square footage of the interior living space is rivaled by that of patios, of which the home has five—including a sun-drenched space beside the heated swimming pool and spa, which sits steps away amid a swath of lush lawn.
Secluded down a hall are two main-level guest bedrooms, each with a three-quarter bath. Separated for privacy, the master suite is a calming, Zen-like retreat that features a luxurious skylit bath with a soaking tub and surfaces of lavish marble. Nearby is a study that, with a bath just across the hall, could easily serve as an additional bedroom.
The three-bedroom guesthouse brings to mind the classic charm of the Hamptons’ Shingle-style homes. In the airy living room, Art Deco–inspired windows on either side of the fireplace admit light and views of greenery. Just outside is a stone patio paired with a wraparound deck—one of several that embrace the home, expanding opportunities for living to the outdoors. Guests will appreciate the spacious kitchen and formal dining room. The home’s stylish modern stairway leads to a loft-like master bedroom, tucked beneath the dramatic angles of the pitched roof. The suite includes a walk-in closet and a crisp, clean skylit bath with a soaking tub and separate glass-walled shower.
Amid the glorious grounds are terraced rock walls, a peaceful sitting area with a fire pit tucked beneath a willow tree, and a delightful freestanding guest studio with its own deck, a living space with walls of glass, and an adjoining kitchen and bath. Tall trees and thriving mature landscaping—including vibrant hydrangeas—create color and privacy, making this estate a perfect pastoral place to relax and unwind—all just minutes from breezy, refreshing beaches.
