You want to get away from it all, and yet you want to be in the center of things. If that’s your conundrum, then this house is for you!
Located just about half a mile from Westhampton Beach village, this five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home is self-contained on nearly three-quarters of an acre that includes a secluded backyard, a heated gunite pool and, above the heated two-car garage, fully equipped guest accommodations that are independent of the main house, with both a private exterior entrance and entry through the main home. Sweetening the deal is the 605-square-foot home theater with Magnolia seating and a 120-inch screen on the lower level.
“It’s designed for luxury, comfort and privacy,” says Dawn Murphy, the Corcoran agent who is co-representing the listing with Kristen Smyth. “It is a stunner. There’s so much custom detail and you can feel it all throughout.”
Custom built in 2021 for the current owner, the 5,100-square-foot home is entered through a covered porch leading into a grand foyer with double height ceilings. To the left is the formal dining room, which has its own wine station; to the right, a hallway leading to the laundry room. The dining room, in turn, leads to a wing that includes a mud room, 116-square-foot office and full bath, a pantry and butler’s pantry.
The open-format great room and kitchen, offering 878 square feet, is accessed via either a hallway from the front foyer or through the dining room. The kitchen is fully equipped with Sub-Zero refrigeration towers and wine cooler, Wolf professional six-burner range, two dishwashers (Bosch, KitchenAid) and is adjacent to the pantries. The custom cabinetry is topped with Quartz and is extended throughout the kitchen and dining room as custom build-ins for storage or beverage service. The 10.5-by-5-foot-long center island has a prep sink, integrated appliances and seats four, plus a clever cubbyhole for stashing a stool for the chef. Other custom touches include a built-in Miele coffee center, undercounter fridge and Elkay purified water bottle filler in the pantry.
The living room is anchored by a gas-fueled fireplace and a wall of glass — both windows and sliding doors — overlooking the back yard. A door on the side of the fireplace leads to the nearly 600-square-foot primary suite, featuring a coffered wall panel, a high triple transom window inset and sliding doors to the deck, and two generous closets. The large bathroom is set in a windowed corner, with a soaking tub and oversize glass shower and has radiant-heated floors.
Each of the four large bedrooms (ranging from 222 to 508 square feet) on the second level has a well-appointed bathroom and there is a laundry room on this floor, too. The largest of the bedrooms has access to a separate private roof deck, and two of the other bedrooms share access to a 448-square-foot deck.
Seven-inch white oak flooring has been laid throughout the home. Other amenities include central vacuum, seven zones of HVAC, a Brilliant Smart Home system for controlling lights, alarm, cameras, climate, intercom and music (a Sonos music system carries the tunes inside and out).
The owners invested heavily in landscaping Murphy says, including perimeter hedges, specimen trees (crape myrtle and sugar gum trees) and flowering shrubs, an irrigation system, custom designed bluestone patios and outdoor lighting to highlight it all.
“It’s all very layered, very private — you feel like you’re in a private refuge,” Murphy says. “This is an exceptional private retreat in town.”
When you want to emerge from your private cocoon, the location is just a stone’s throw from year-round town gem, the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center, restaurants and boutiques, she says, describing Westhampton Beach as a “hopping family-friendly place with plenty of culture, outdoor music and a great Saturday farmer’s market.”
Also nearby are the Westhampton Country Club, the Aspatuck Tennis Club, access to Quantuck Bay and Roger’s Beach.
