The buyer of Mecox Farm in Water Mill -- recently reduced from $24.995 million to $20.995 million -- will be purchasing the vision of architect James Michael Howard, who also chose the home's decor, which is included in the price.

"He designed the house to be fully furnished, right down to the artwork on the walls," says Gary DePersia, of The Corcoran Group, who is marketing the property.

Set on three-plus acres, the 13,000-square-foot house overlooks farmland and Mecox Bay. From the second-floor terrace is a view of the ocean, which is about a mile away.

The house has seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms and five fireplaces. The library has a mahogany fireplace mantel. There is a glass-walled wine room near the 21- by-18-foot dining room.

A large sitting room, bar area and his-and-hers dressing rooms lead to a common marble bath in the master bedroom suite.

The great room with its high ceiling and white paneled walls is furnished with gray-toned chairs and sofas, with two distinct sitting areas.

Outside, the pool house and cabana sits an infinity-edged pool. A topiary and a reflecting pool are also part of the landscape.
