Peace and privacy are found in this sprawling 4,000-square-foot custom home and its pastoral-like grounds. Set on 2.4 acres in Orient, nestled against a trenched bamboo forest, this property offers a deep calming sense the moment you approach.

You’re met by the sight of a 1,000-square-foot mahogany wrap-around porch that welcomes you in and sets the tone of integrity, character, and traditional detail with modern elements.

“The home draws some inspiration from a beautiful cottage in New Suffolk that the builder and designer rehabbed several years ago,” said listing agent Bridget Elkin with Compass. “Given the 2.4-acre property size, the home is substantially larger for the appropriate scale, but they successfully captured the essence and charm found in the New Suffolk Cottage to complement the 4,000 square feet of living space here.”

Inside, you’ll find a semi-open floor plan with an elegant two-story foyer leading to the living room, dining room, and kitchen.

At one end of the open living space sits a large, screened-in porch and opposite, across a large mahogany deck that overlooks the gunite saltwater pool and expansive yard, is a spacious den with vaulted ceilings.

A second entrance, off the kitchen, is connected to a laundry room and a large walk-in pantry. An ensuite bedroom completes the downstairs floor plan.

Upstairs is a second-floor living room that connects to three ensuite bedrooms, including the large primary suite.

The quality of building materials throughout the home is exceptional. Steel beams and columns protect the home’s structural integrity as does the 50-year metal roof.

Countless oversized Anderson windows create a living environment flooded with natural light, allowing you to take in your lush and private surroundings.

“There’s a warmth and sophistication to this home that instantly grabs your attention. This largely comes from the sheer volume of glass and natural light in the home. The density and wildness of your green surroundings prove therapeutic,” Elkin added.

The property is listed at $3,095,000. See the complete listing here.
