Tucked away down a secluded street near some of the most iconic sites of East Hampton's bucolic Springs, this extraordinary waterfront home is thoughtfully designed to showcase magnificent views across the water to Accabonac Harbor and the pristine lands of Merrill Lake Sanctuary. In this idyllic setting is a most exquisitely crafted home. Natural materials are used to great effect here - all the floors are of imported Turkish stone and all are radiant heated; window frames and wall panels are of unfinished, rough-textured wood. An antique wooden door opens to the main floor, where interiors are simple and uncluttered, yet carefully considered down to the smallest detail. Sturdy wood beams frame the open living areas, and many large windows on three sides present breathtaking views. A bay window reaching to the floor makes you feel as if you are floating above the land. Perfect for entertaining, this home is also a sanctuary, a place to leave daily pressures behind and find peace and tranquility. A wood-burning fireplace of Turkish stone anchors the living room, a place to gather or just enjoy a glass of wine by the fire and watch the ducks parade by outside. A formal dining area lies between the living room and eat-in kitchen, which has dark-colored limestone countertops, island seating and top grade appliances. The master suite is a place of serenity and includes a bath with tiled flooring, plaster walls and stone vanity top. The fully finished walk-out lower level is a world unto itself. A large, open room currently an artist's studio has the same stone flooring as the main floor and features a massive antique stone sink used by the artist to soak watercolor paper. The walls of an office/den are lined with built-in bookshelves of unfinished wood, and a gas fireplace set in stone warms the room. An exercise space, a bedroom and full bath are also on this level, along with a laundry. An elevator serves all three levels of the property--both floors of the home and the outdoor parking area which is between them. Many possibilities exist in this enchanting home, which must be seen to be appreciated. Currently used as a family compound along with the house next door, this home can easily stand on its own.
