This solar-powered smart home in Montauk’s Hither Hills was designed to maximize ocean views in principal living spaces, its owner says. The five-bedroom, four-bath shingle-style home is listed for $6.495 million.
“When you have a standard home where the living quarters are downstairs and the bedrooms are upstairs, you limit yourself,” says owner Rosemary Scollan. “When you go upstairs in my house, it’s the reverse. It creates the height so you have the bigger view.”
Upstairs in the 4,000-square-foot home there is a custom kitchen with a cantilevered Moppa wood floating island table, leather-sandblasted Azura marble and Wolf, Sub-Zero and Miele appliances.
In the master suite, there is a king-size massage bed with USB ports; an en-suite bathroom that includes a Bain-Ultra hydro-thermo massage tub, Robern and Dornbracht fixtures and wet-style cabinetry. A deck off the suite has a hot tub and stairs to an outdoor shower.
The 0.32-acre property includes a heated gunite pool and a deck with a gas fire pit and a barbecue area. Towels, linens and furniture, including a Gloster outdoor collection, are being sold with the home, Scollan says.
HVAC, security, lighting and Sonos sound can be controlled through a smartphone, Scollan says. The home has radiant heat, a 20 kW backup generator, a full-home water filter and a Tesla car charger in the attached two-car garage.
BergDesign Architecture built the home.
The property is listed with Julia Stavola and Kathleen Beckmann of Town & Country Real Estate.
