MONTAUK MODERN LAKEFRONT COMPOUND
This extraordinary lakefront compound, comprised of two single and separate lots, which totals 6,500+ square feet with 7 bedrooms, 7 baths, represents a special opportunity in Montauk. Included is a meticulously maintained 4,700+ sf main house with a finished basement, an 1,800 sf 3-bedroom, 2-bath guesthouse located at the water's edge, a 3-bay heated garage plus storage loft, and 50' Gunite lap pool and spa. Designed for optimal indoor/outdoor living by renowned architect Robert Young , and winner of an AIA Archi Award, the property is a collection of waterside structures linked together with modern glass elements. Thoughtfully conceived to capitalize on views, this compound was constructed of the highest quality by one of the top builders in the Hamptons - Atlantic Collaborative Construction.
The design thoughtfully melds modern with traditional forms, reflected in the cedar shingles, white painted exterior wood, walls of glass, exposed structural trusses, and driftwood flanked floating walls. The main structure includes an expansive great room with oversized sliding doors that showcase beautiful northern water views, inviting in southern sun and breezes. The design affords a direct visual connection that extends through the kitchen to the water on one side, and a secluded lawn area on the other.
The main house contains a 2-story sleeping wing, a large central living space, and a separate 1+-story guest wing with an extra sleeping loft. The main living area with its wide-open floor plan, includes the kitchen, dining and living spaces with over-sized doors that open up to transform the room into an indoor/outdoor space with decks on either side. Off the kitchen, you'll find a screened-in porch overlooking the water. The master suite is bright and light-filled with its own balcony and private outdoor shower. One of the guest bedrooms includes built-in bunks to sleep four. A second outdoor shower, located off the side of the house, is easily accessed from the pool. Despite its beachy and casual feel, the house was constructed to the highest quality standards, using extra thick doors, acoustical panels to absorb sound, and structural insulated panels for year-round energy efficiency. Other features include radiant heat floors in the entry, baths and basement, a large multi-purpose recreational room, wine cellar, a 2nd laundry room, central lighting control and AV system, abundant storage areas, and an 85kw generator that serves both houses.
The guest house contains a high ceilinged central living area, three bedrooms including a bunkroom that sleeps 4, and an unfinished basement perfect for off-season board and kayak storage. The master bedroom is designed to resemble a sleeping porch surrounded by walls of windows on three sides. The large deck with built in benches affords the perfect dining and entertaining space. Additionally, the guest house provides its own private entrance to the pool area and access to the water.
Surrounded by a dense perimeter of plantings, the landscape plan by architect Brady Anderson ensures maximum privacy creating "room-like" niches each with their own character and scale. It also provides the refined setting for a variety of outdoor experiences, as well as taking advantage of unimpeded visual and physical access to the lake. Separate water access is located beyond the pool, with two boat moorings positioned just offshore. The property's location on Lake Montauk provides easy access to Gardiners Bay, while also providing a well-protected harbor for boating, waterskiing and fishing. Perfectly located, this compound on Lake Montauk is near Ditch Plains Beach and Village restaurants and shops which are just minutes by car. #130076
