Extraordinary oceanfront property in Montauk offering the ultimate in privacy. Spanning over 36 acres of private conserved land, the heart-inspired creation by architect Frank Hollenbeck was based on a Chinese tea house with its Asian influenced blue tiled roof. By far the most private site in the Hamptons, this stylish and ultra-modern residence offers wooded hills and nature paths through private reserve leading to pristine ocean beaches, and is sited high on a bluff to capture commanding views of the Atlantic Ocean. A gated private driveway meanders through the private and scenic reserve leading to an incredible three level 7,000 square foot modernist retreat with every amenity for the most discerning buyer. Featuring five generous bedrooms, four bathrooms, a state-of-the-art movie theater, elevator, 10′ triangular skylights, a Japanese tile roof, four gas fireplaces, 15 zone radiant heat including the garage, six separate central air zones with a dehumidification system, an automatic generator, and most significantly, steel reinforcement to withstand 150 mile winds.
Fine materials, finishes and craftsmanship showcase the Honduran mahogany, Norwegian quartz counter tops and Italian carerra marble that punctuate the sleek ultra modern design. The wide sandy beach offers the best surf casting with no public access for miles affording tranquility and privacy. The luxurious modern home has been specially sited to take advantage of dramatic sunrise and sunset views. The property includes a 2-acre pond which forms a habitat for local flora and fauna and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and scenic pastures. At the ocean’s edge, two naturally formed 100′ jetties act as natural barriers to passing storms. Montauk offers a lifestyle of privacy and serenity and is considered the jewel of the Hamptons.
The property is close to 4 star restaurants, high-end shopping, champion golf courses, wineries, horseback riding and stables, the Montauk Yacht Club, surfing, boating, deep sea fishing, numerous cultural events and is a few miles from the private Montauk airport. Montauk is also home to many celebrities and famous residents past and present. It’s been said that the lifestyle in Montauk « feels like you are living on the edge of the world and at the same time close to the center of the universe ».
