TAKING IT IN. An architecturally unique oceanfront house in Bridgehampton has come on the market for $29.95 million. The newly constructed modern home, designed by Barnes Coy Architects of Bridgehampton, has a glass facade with more than 9,500 square feet of living space and soaring, 10- to 15-foot ceilings throughout.
“The design concept was to bring the excitement and drama of the Atlantic Ocean inside the house,” said architect Christopher Coy.
The dramatic home has seven bedrooms, 10 baths, an indoor gourmet kitchen plus two outdoor kitchens, a media room, a full gym with sauna, steam and plunge pool, an infinity-edge gunite swimming pool with spa, a pool house and more.
“There is a protective dune in front of the house, which suggested that the main living spaces and the master suite should be located on the upper level to ensure the best view of the ocean,” Coy says. “The upper story is cantilevered above the ground-floor structure to enhance a sense of floating or flying above the beach, which both increases one’s intimacy with the ocean yet creates a feeling of privacy and security.” The home is listed with Susan and Matthew Breitenbach of The Corcoran Group. -- Mary Beth Foley
CANAL LIVING. A safe harbor, in the form of an attached boathouse, comes with the $2.225 million price tag on a traditional-style home along the canal at Bayberry Point in Islip.
Listing agent Doug Coville of Netter Real Estate says he tried it out firsthand when homeowners Joe and Lyn Kern let him tie up his boat there during a heavy storm. The boathouse was constructed in 1935 and accommodated his own 30-foot Alglas power boat at one point, says Joe Kern.
Guest quarters with a kitchen and a two-car garage -- there’s another detached, two-car garage on the property -- have been added onto the structure. Above the boathouse is a playroom, complete with a full, regulation pool table and pinball machine.
The seven-bedroom, 6½-bath home, which has three fireplaces, stretches along the 1.5-acre property to form a compound with its own putting green and tennis court. A 220-foot bulkhead makes easy access to the canal leading to the Great South Bay and Fire Island. “When the kids were small, we’d go there all the time,” Joe Kern says. -- Virginia Dunleavy
HORSE HISTORY. The asking price for Pinebourne Farms in Muttontown has been reduced to $9.5 million from $10 million. The 22.13-acre property comes with a 15,000-square-foot main house, a horse farm and a three-bedroom cottage.
It is listed with Anna Alyskewycz of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
The cottage has two grooms’ apartments. The property includes a 12-stall barn, a quarter-mile training track, four paddocks and hay barn.
The former owners bred thoroughbred racehorses there for more than 30 years. The manor house was built in 1932 by John Washington Bradley Delehanty, who was the architect for the interfaith chapel at LIU Post in Brookville. -- Alexandria Parker
