Just a driveway away from one of the most cherished stretches of road in all of East Hampton -- Gerard Drive -- this custom-built home was beautifully designed to allude to the shingled cottages of Jackson Pollack and Willem DeKooning's springs while enjoying the modern amenities and conveniences expected in the modern Hampton's vacation home. The 2,560+/- sq. ft. residence, with high end details and finishes also boasts an additional 840+/- sq. ft. in its finished lower level, as well as a pool and pool house. It is situated on a maturely landscaped acre a short five minute walk from the nearest beach and 5 minute bike ride from the Springs General store and Farmers market. Belonging to a renowned Art and furniture collector the interiors are adorned with contemporary art and vintage mid-furniture rarely found in a Hamptons rental. The entertainment wing of the house is comprised of a massive, open great room which incorporates a large dining space, as well as a large living room with beamed cathedral ceilings, a 13x15 wraparound sofa, fireplace, and French doors to a screened-in bluestone porch. There is also the chef's kitchen, which offers ample cabinetry and storage, a large island with bar seating, plus a prep area with sink, wine fridge, and ice machine. Granite counters, and high-end appliances include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, GE Monogram dual ovens, dishwasher, and gas range with grill and griddle. On the other side of the central foyer is the two-story bedroom wing, nicely separated from the entertaining spaces. On the first floor we find a large guest bedroom suite with a walk-in closet and private deck as well as a large bathroom with a glass shower, Carrara marble tub surround, and dual sinks. Across the hall is another nicely appointed guest room. Upstairs is the master suite with walk-in closet, private mahogany deck, and large bath with glass shower, dual sinks, jet tub, and custom tile work. A fourth guest bedroom and full bath complete the second floor. In the finished basement there is a large entertainment/game room, with another massive wraparound sofa, bunk beds, a spacious laundry and plenty of room for storage. The home is outfitted throughout with high bandwidth Wi-Fi, Sonos music, and two 65 inch smart TVs one in the living room and and another in the basement media room, to facilitate streaming of your favorite content. The back yard has a true Hamptons "estate" feel with a 40x16 gunite pool with large bluestone patio, teak loungers and umbrellas, and a gorgeous pool house complete with lounge/sleeper sofa, wet bar, full bathroom as well as a private outdoor shower. The built in barbecue and outdoor dining area complete the picture for this entertainers dream. Lounge at the pool.....or perhaps a refreshing drink on your screened in porch?...feeling adventurous?...grab a kayak and clam rake and catch your dinner....or just kick back on your couch and look at a great painting...This house has it all!
