7-ACRE OCEANFRONT COMPOUND ALONG 300' OF BEACHFRONT
Heroic ocean views are merely the prologue to the story that unfolds off East Hampton's fabled Further Lane as nearly seven lush acres on two separate parcels plays host to both house and guest house along 300 feet of pristine oceanfront.
26 & 32 Windmill Lane, East Hampton, New York
Agated entry opens to reveal a sprawling two-story, 5,900 +/- square foot residence on its own 5.4 acres. Zwirko & Ortmann meticulously designed the home to incorporate enviable vistas from every room over the gently, undulating dunescape to a vast liquid backdrop. The great room under a vaulted and beamed ceiling forms the nucleus of this chic, recently refurbished retreat, anchored on one end by a fireplace and the other by the dining area. A generous eat-in kitchen with fireplace opens to a covered porch with room for alfresco dining sure to resonate with conversation and laughter during meals, both large and small, while looking out to the sea. A guest master with a private terrace, an additional fireplaced bedroom suite, powder room, and a glass-encased office adjacent to the two-car garage complete the first floor. Upstairs, the master wing with its own terrace finds seclusion on the eastern end of the residence. Fortunate guests will be very comfortably ensconced in a generous suite with a fireplace and balcony to the west. A separate staircase finds another guest or staff suite.
Outside broad stone terraces wrap around the rear of the residence affording expansive views with room for copious lounging to enjoy it all. A large bluestone patio frames the existing 50-foot pool with ocean views. However, a new 60-foot oceanside infinity-edged pool is also a possibility.
Noted Hamptons mid-century architect Alfred Scheffer designed the recently renovated 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath guest house with a fireplace that resides on its own 1.3 acres seamlessly landscaped into the park-like grounds. The two-story structure with a sleeping loft has its own heated Gunite pool and a detached garage creatively transformed into a spacious gym.
While both houses are ripe for renovation and expansion, an ambitious new owner might create something more befitting this gorgeous acreage. One could include a 12,500-square-foot new oceanside residence as well as a 6,000-square-foot guest house. Properties could be enhanced with even more square footage in finished lower levels. In addition, the property has more than ample room for a sunken north/south tennis court.
With endless possibilities and the broad, white sandy beach at the end of your private walkway, this substantial oceanside compound awaits your private tour.
