The nuts and bolts

5 bedrooms

6.5 bathrooms 

3,400 square feet

.87 acres

House proud

Originally built in the 1990s, this home received a tip-to-toe renovation in 2024, not only updating the space and amenities, but creating a flow that accommodates groups of people staying in the home or being entertained there. 

“This house was renovated for entertaining—that’s the whole idea behind it,” says James Peyton, the Corcoran agent listing the property. “It already had great bones, but was turned into a gorgeous home with a great vision, floorplan and finishes.” 

What’s the plan?

The rehab of this one-story home involved finishing the walk-out basement, providing 1,534 square feet of usable living space, which includes a large recreation area and an ensuite bedroom. A bonus room can be used for storage, or converted to a gym or wine cellar. The other four bedrooms, all ensuite, are on the main floor. Three are of near equal size at about 165 square feet, and the primary bedroom suite is slightly larger (200 square feet with an oversized bathroom and walk in closet providing an additional 190 square feet), and self-contained across the entry hallway for enhanced privacy. The generous entry leads to the open-format living/dining room and kitchen overlooking the patio and back yard. The laundry room and a walk-in pantry are just off the kitchen, and a half bath is accessed through the hallway.

What’s cooking?

The gourmet kitchen features an 11-foot-long quartz-topped island that seats six and includes a prep sink with black-matte fixtures, in keeping with the cabinetry hardware. Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances keep it sleek and simple. The main design feature of the kitchen is a striking black-veined marble backsplash. 

What else?

The house features cathedral ceilings and maximizes both the light and the views through a wall of windows and doors overlooking the back yard. There are wide-plank (six inches) hardwood floors throughout. The furnishings may be negotiated for purchased under a separation transaction. 

Amenities and more

  • Wood-burning fireplace
  • 8-foot spa shower, radiant floors and a soaking tub in the primary bathroom
  • 20 x 40 heated salt-water pool and outdoor shower
  • Dry bar and recreation areas on the lower level
  • 50 x 30 bluestone patio in the backyard

One cool thing (or two)

The property abuts a 113-acre nature preserve with walking trails that lead to Montauk.

Agent’s callout 

“When you walk in you feel like you’re already in the backyard,” Peyton says. “We’re close to the village fringe, but so close to the nature preserve, with the birds chirping in the background … it’s really peaceful.” 

Location, location, location
