Chic beach house in Quogue
A house in Quogue, now on the market for $4.595 million, went through major renovations in 2007 when the owners called upon Peter Curto, of Curto and Curto Builders, to create an 8,154-square-foot home with a chic beach-house feel. “It’s a work of art,” says Lynn November, listing agent with Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
Detailed woodwork, from the foyer and grand staircase to the arched doorways and custom built-ins, is featured throughout the house. Wide plank floors and exposed ceiling beams are found in the family room, and the living room boasts a coffered ceiling.
There are six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and one half-bath. A junior master suite, on the main level, comes with a private entrance. The second-floor en suite master bedroom has a fireplace — one of three in the home — and access to a deck.
The 1.3-acre gated parcel is “exquisitely landscaped,” says November, and includes a heated saltwater in-ground pool and hot tub. French doors off the living room, den and eat-in kitchen lead to a brick patio that runs along the perimeter of the pool area. Other features include a formal dining room with adjoining butler’s pantry, a 10-seat home theater and an attached three-car garage.
