LIVING IN PARADISE
Quogue, New York - $11,950,000
By: Bella Kalt
You remember the feeling. You're on holiday on the coast of some Caribbean isle or the cliff of a European town overlooking the Mediterranean. Each morning when your head leaves the pillow you know, you are on vacation as the sunrise illuminates broad expanses of water dotted with boats and vistas of other shores. Much closer to home, you can recreate that feeling every day when you own this fivebedroom, seven bath retreat poised alongside 100+ ft. of pristine Quogue beachfront with sweeping vistas over both the Atlantic Ocean and Shinnecock Bay.
Masterfully built for the discerning owners, this approximately 6,000 square foot modern retreat features an open floor plan. While cooking in the state-of-the-art Euro-inspired kitchen, you can see all the activity past the dining area, into the great room, and out to the deck scanning the ocean. The separate den with fireplace overlooking the Har-Tru tennis court out to the bay is the ideal place to find peace and tranquility after a long day. The expansive master wing includes a luxurious bath with steam shower, generous walk-in closet, and views to the Atlantic through a wall of doors leading to the ocean view deck. Spread throughout the lower level are four additional bedrooms, a media room, gym, and nearby pool bath that will function as an integrated cabana.
Outside one can appreciate the 360-degree ocean and bay vistas from the expansive patios surrounding the sizeable heated Gunite pool with separate spa. A wooden walkway leads you over the dune, past a pair of benches, to 100+ feet of pristine sandy beach that seems to stretch endlessly in each direction. Head over to Dockers for cocktails or into Quogue for dinner, both so close. But on clear evenings eat early, as you might want to get back for some of the most beautiful sunsets anywhere, as the sun seems to disappear over the bay leaving the horizon a purplish haze. Best of all, you won't need a passport, a pat down or a plane ticket. Just get in your car and head East. When you get there, you'll know....and remember.
