This Andrew Geller-designed beach cottage on 5.14 Bridgehampton acres is a throwback to classic Hamptons getaways, says its listing agent. It is listed for $1.995 million.
“It represents what beach houses in the Hamptons used to be,” says listing agent Cee Scott Brown of The Corcoran Group, in describing the updated three-bedroom, two-bath Modern-style home. He is co-listing with Jack Pearson.
Geller, whose design credits include the “Typical American House” exhibition at the 1959 American National Exhibition in Moscow and the Windows on the World restaurant atop One World Trade Center, built the asymmetrical home with abstract trapezoidal windows in 1963. Interior designer John Bjornen’s 2012 renovation produced the current beachy, sleek all-white interior aesthetic.
The front door, which is part of a two-story glass wall, is tucked under a covered porch beneath the second-floor deck, Brown says. Once inside, a stone fireplace at the rear of the living/dining room is directly ahead; behind the fireplace, there is a new kitchen, bedroom and full bath.
Stairs to the left of the fireplace lead to a master bedroom with a full bath and a bedroom that is currently being used as a nursery. Closing up a previously existing catwalk to the deck allowed for the creation of the master suite, Brown says.
Landscaping by Joseph Cornetta utilizes indigenous materials and was designed to enhance privacy, Brown says. The property features a heated gunite pool and Modern-style pool house with a full basement and full bath. Both were added during the 2012 renovation, in which the bathrooms, plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems were updated.
