Watching “amazing sunsets” and dolphins splashing are part of the experience of owning this waterfront Montauk modern home listed for $5.895 million, says listing agent Edward Patrowicz of The Corcoran Group.
“The storms that march across Block Island Sound are just incredible when they are over the water, with the lightning and the colors,” he says. “It’s a magical place.”
Nestled atop a low bluff overlooking Block Island Sound, the 3,400-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bath home is on 1.4 acres bordering a 174-acre nature preserve. It was built based on a 2003 design by architect Robert Young.
The glass-lined open design on the upper level is a kitchen-dining-living hybrid with a fireplace. The kitchen includes fireslate countertops and a Sub-Zero refrigerator.
“There’s a lot of minimalist feel to the areas in and out, but not overly so,” Patrowicz says. “They touched on a nice balance between the warmth and the simplicity.”
A large family room on the lower level leads to a limestone-wrapped pool and lounge area with an added wooden deck; a covered patio — which has a second patio directly above — includes the home’s second fireplace.
For more outdoor recreation, Fort Pond Bay and its beaches are nearby.
“You can kayak and go fishing, hang out and swim, sit on the beach and read, maybe do a clambake,” Patrowicz says.
