Signature architectural styles often define a region. Cape Cods are to Massachusetts what shingle-style homes are to the Hamptons. To date, the jury has been out when it comes to a characteristic North Fork aesthetic. In the land of beach cottages, historic colonials and old farmhouses — why choose just one style?
This South Jamesport estate eschews the notion of a singular regional style to the nth-degree. The thoroughly modern build is a technical knockout rarely found on the upper fork.
“True contemporary style homes are few and far between on the North Fork,” said listing agent Thomas McCloskey of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “There are only two or three waterfront contemporaries on the market now here. It’s a rare find.”
Clean lines, with a white cork flooring fall right in line with its true modernism design designation. The main floor is the second floor of this estate. It was design to give the homeowner optimal water views while inviting the coastline inside.
The eat-in kitchen boasts green features that help conserve water. From a style standpoint, the reflective backsplash gives the homeowner a chance to enjoy the scenery even when manning the stove opposite the window. The kitchen opens into the large living room with a painted brick fireplace.
In addition to its many green features — including solar panels —the architectural prowess is exemplified in the formal dinning area, where a motorized garage-doorlike panel of windows can be lifted to give diners the feeling they’re eating outside.
“It’s like you’re on top of the water,” said McCloskey. “The homeowner really thought of it all in the design.”
The master suite with an attached nautical-inspired bathroom rounds out the main floor.
The lower level is another home unto itself. It boasts a fully updated kitchen, living area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. One of the showers is even accessible directly from the outside to avoid traipsing in sand.
In a home made for outliving, there’s no shortage of spaces to entertain. There are four mahogany decks, a manicured lawn and 165-feet of private beach.
This home is listed for $2,295,000.
