The nuts and bolts

5 bedrooms

6 baths/1 half bath

5,200 square feet

1.2 Acres

House proud

Built in 2006, and set back on a wooded lot with pretty landscaping, the house is in turn-key condition, having been regularly updated by the current owners to include modern amenities and finishes, while keeping its traditional character. 

What’s the plan?

The home’s foyer opens into a 556-square-foot living room that features cathedral ceilings and a fireplace flanked by French doors leading to the back deck. 

A hallway at the front connects the living and dining rooms and leads to a half bath, the utility room, an ensuite guest bedroom with it private deck, and, eventually to the attached garage. The living room and kitchen share a semi-open format with a large opening providing easy access. The primary bedroom on this floor includes two walk-in closets, a large bathroom with a spa tub, and sliding doors offering access to the deck. The second level includes three ensuite bedrooms and a large room built out with shelves and seating, currently used as a common music/play room. The generous landing serves as a lounge area with a television. 

The 2,858-square-foot basement level is completely finished with a 1,700-square-foot play area, a dedicated home theater, a gym with a full bathroom, and plenty of storage, including a cedar closet. The state-of-the-art gym equipment may be purchased in a separate negotiation. 

“There are so many communal areas in and outside the house—you can entertain very well and have a lot of guests without stepping on each other toes,” say Felicitas Kohl, the Corcoran agent who represents the listing.

What’s cooking?

The 439-square-foot eat-in kitchen updates include Viking and Sub-Zero appliances, a Marvel wine cooler and two dishwashers. The cabinetry has been refreshed with paint and new hardware and is topped by marble counters. The center island seats three and includes a prep sink and additional storage. Upper cabinets are a combination of closed, glass-paned and open accent shelving. The kitchen also offers access across the hall to the dining room and an adjacent family room with fireplace.

What else?

All the bathrooms have been updated and refreshed with subway tiles, marble sink counters and hardware. The well-lighted upstairs common room, with built-in bookshelves, a fireplace and a vault-style ceiling offers multiple options as a study, library or recreation room. 

Amenities and more

The heated 18′ x 36′ pool is surrounded by a large brick-inlaid pavement with ample space for lounging and a conversation area. The deck offers a large, comfortable space for dining and includes a large patio umbrella. There’s also an outdoor shower. 

One cool thing (or two)

The home is in a natural oasis, set back from the cul-de-sac and abutting a wooded natural reserve owed by the town of East Hampton, and offering complete privacy. “It’s really very private,” Kohl says. “You don’t hear a car, which is rare in the Hamptons.”

Agent’s callout 

“This house is very well kept and was used only for weekends and summer,” Kohl says “The owners upgraded along the way and kept it modern and current. Everything is in ship shape—it looks like you walk into a new house.”
