Rich Cribs: Modern barn in East Hampton, and more
ALL NEW. Hamptons home buyers who missed out on snapping up one of the “modern barns” from architect Alexander Gorlin and Plum Builders have another opportunity.
The latest home is on the market for $4.4 million, and is one of four that have gone up within a mile in East Hampton.
The first two were sold before they were finished. The 6,500-square-foot rustic modern home was designed by Gorlin, rated one of the top architects in the country by Architectural Digest last year.
Behind walls of glass is an Italian-style kitchen with a 17-foot island topped with Calcutta stone, a Bertazzoni stove, a Liebherr fridge and two Bosch dishwashers. The six-bedroom, 6-1/2-bathroom home also boasts a 1,000-bottle climate-controlled wine cellar and tasting room, and a home theater with a 12-foot screen, a 3-D projector and stadium seating for 10.
There also is the ability to control most of the home’s systems, from the music to the pool temperature, from anywhere via cellphone or computer. The Corcoran Group’s Zachary Vichinsky, who is listing the home with brother Cody Vichinsky, says the project is unique among the spec homes popping up on the East End.
“The home incorporates state-of-the-art technology and features amenities, style and details [that] are several notches above the normal speculative and even custom-built home within the price point,” Vichinsky says. “All this, coupled with a world-renowned architect and noted Hamptons builder, creates a home that is very unique to the marketplace.” -- LISA CHAMOFF
THE SUN ALSO SETS Without other houses surrounding it, this Centre Island estate listed for $4.995 million provides great views. “They are the best sunsets in the world,” says owner Lenny Gross, president of Triumph Structures, a Long Island company involved in aircraft manufacturing. “There’s a view of the Sound and the bay from the patio and the great room itself. It’s unbelievable.” Situated on nearly 4 acres, the newly constructed mansion offers six bedrooms, 6-1/2 bathrooms, hardwood floors, high ceilings and custom molding. This is complemented by a separate cottage and a three-car garage. However, all of this takes a supporting role to the star of this property: Mother Nature. “Everything is about the view with the house,” Gross says. A private beach and dock supply additional benefits for boating and swimming enthusiasts. “With the view, water sports and fishing off the dock — if you’re into water, it’s a paradise,” Gross assures. The home is with Yasmin Arshravan of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. -- NICK DIVICO
