Take a tour of these five unique Hamptons homes.
This two-acre property, listed at $16.95 million, overlooks 40 acres of protected land and also has ocean views. “It is a totally custom and unique Hamptons estate—pristine and situated in the southern heart of Sagaponack,” says Susan Breitenbach, a top broker with Corcoran. “It has everything imaginable. No expense was spared.” The gush-worthy amenities include a sunken hydro Har-Tru tennis court, heated gunite pool with hot tub, and a radiant outdoor cooling system to ensure that the bluestone patio is always cool to the touch. 1936 Montauk Hwy., Water Mill, 631-899-0303
This $3.295 million farm-style home boasts a trifecta of location draws: walking distance to Bridgehampton town, a short ride to the ocean, and a part of the Bull Head Settlement community—which means the backyard spills out onto acres of fields and greens for walking. “This is a wonderful spot to disconnect from the city strife and breathe fresh air,” says Raphael Avigdor of the Avigdor/Peyton team at Douglas Elliman. “Every home has its own energy, and this home vibrates at a calming and soothing frequency.” 70 Jobs Lane, Southampton, 631-204-2740
A newly constructed residence situated on almost two acres in Southampton’s private, ocean-accessible Murray Compound, this traditional home has an on-site tennis court, a heated gunite pool, and no fewer than seven fireplaces. The property also comes fully furnished. “Having a recognized Italian decorator like Achille Salvagni gives the house a new and refreshing look,” says Harald Grant (above), a broker with Sotheby’s, which is listing the property for $28.9 million. “As you go through the house, you feel a sense of youthfulness and life with the vibrant colors that flow from room to room.” 50 Nugent St., Southampton, 631-227-4913
Designed by the award-winning firm Bates Masi, this project makes use of the landscape by incorporating natural elements into the design, allowing the home to blend harmoniously into its surroundings. It is listed complete for $16.95 million (or $8.5 million for the land without the build). “They don’t just design modern homes to fit their needs,” says Douglas Elliman broker Matthew Breitenbach of the firm. “Bates Masi designs modern homes as if [each is] a work of art. Each detail and viewpoint is artfully and meticulously crafted. There is no lack of exceptional detailing.” 2488 Main St., Bridgehampton, 631-537-6590
This 9,500-square-foot house with seven bedrooms faces south over a wooded reserve. Listed at $3.95 million, the estate is very private, nestled away in North Haven. “This is one of the best new-construction values in the Hamptons,” says Frank Bodenchak (shown above with his wife and fellow broker, Dawn), who represents the house through Sotheby’s. “It’s built to a grander scale and with more amenities than you ever find at the $4 million price point.” Those amenities include a movie theater, a wine cellar, a fire pit, and a master suite with a two-sided fireplace and two-story bathroom. 2446 Main St., Bridgehampton, 917-968-9020
