A 1988 Sag Harbor Contemporary that was renovated in 2014 by its owners — one of whom is the dean of an architecture school in upstate New York — is listed for $3.495 million.
“What’s great about contemporary architecture is you can overcome the environmental barrier between the inside and outside and make a house feel much larger than it really is,” says Evan Douglis, who is dean of the School of Architecture at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy. “This is something that I think is really quite unique about the place.” He is selling the house with his wife, the founder and chief executive of ARTDEX.com, an art-technology company in New York City Jenny Park Adam.
The seven-bedroom, 6 ½-bathroom cedar-shingle house includes a foyer that, with the home’s glass panes that Douglis says measure as much as 7 feet high and 9 feet wide, allows for views of the pool, yard and wooded area in the back of the property.
The open floor plan includes a living room with a fireplace, cathedral ceilings and sliding glass doors that open to the bluestone patio and heated pool. A Scavolini-designed kitchen boasts a white stone floor and stainless steel appliances. The house, which is represented by Enzo Morabito of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, also includes a family room with a fireplace and a master suite with a bathroom and sliders that open to a private balcony overlooking the pool.
The 2.2-acre property features a tennis court and a pool house with a full bath, sauna, outdoor shower and changing room. The pool house has a bar plus pocket doors that slide into the wall, opening the structure to nature.
