True summer finds from the Hamptons and Manhattan real estate markets.
A 6-bedroom with ocean vistas in East Hampton.

It feels like just yesterday we were masking up and locking down. And while caution is still key, this season carries an air of excitement that we haven’t felt in years. Some incredibly special houses in the Hamptons are just waiting to become homes, along with one exceptional beauty in the Big Apple.

In Southampton, 6,500 square feet of living space and solar roofing.

Plan ahead with this new-to-market 7-bedroom, 6.5-bath home in Southampton. A brand-new construction, the house will sit on a 1.29-acre flag lot and will offer 6,500 square feet of living space. Outdoor features include a heated gunite pool, spa and outdoor shower as well as a tennis court, and an outdoor barbecue, all in a very private landscaped setting. A finished lower level offers two bedrooms and one bath, as well as a home gym and a room to finally install that home theater you’ve talked about. Keeping things eco-friendly, the home will be outfitted with 5kW solar roofing. Think of what you’ll save on heat as you enjoy Hamptons living at its best. Asking $5,495,000, listed with Raphael Avigdor, licensed associate real estate broker, of Douglas Elliman.

Curtain glass walls allow light to flow in this Amagansett 7-bedroom home.

Christopher Stewart and Jessica Vertullo at Compass have a dream home for sale in Amagansett on a 3-acre hilltop on picturesque Town Lane. Asking $14,495,000, the house features almost 10,000 square feet of living space complete with seven en suite bedrooms and a design that brings together charming country living with modern aesthetics. A state-of-the-art custom Boffi kitchen with best-in-class appliances complements the open concept design of the spacious living and dining areas with curtain glass walls that let the light flow in. There is also an office, mudroom, powder room and heated 3-car garage. Upstairs, a sumptuous primary suite overlooks American beechwood trees. With eco-conscious, top-of-the-line modern conveniences such as radiant-heated floors, Crestron home automation, a geothermal heating and cooling system, and reverse osmosis water filtration, the lower level features a glass-walled gym, an infrared sauna, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, a powder room and ample open recreational space with a fireplace. Outdoors, a glass-enclosed pool house with a wet bar complements an expansive heated gunite pool and spa, and an outdoor kitchen and dining area with fireplace, all surrounded by a limestone patio and impeccable landscaping.

In nearby East Hampton, a stunner comes to market, listed with Lori Schiaffino of Compass. On Georgica Pond, this Jeffrey Colle custom-built home features ocean vistas and over 200 feet of waterfront, while the expanse of glass doors and oversize windows allows you to enjoy the scene from indoors or out. Featuring six bedrooms, the primary faces the pond and ocean, and boasts a steam shower and fireplace. The great room overlooks the pool, outdoor patio and a covered lounge area, while natural water vistas provide a dramatic backdrop, with the outdoor kitchen making entertaining a delight. The pool house is equipped with a lounge area, kitchenette and bathroom, and there’s a 4-car garage with hydraulic lift and EV charger. Asking $32,500,000.

A triplex penthouse at the Stuart Duncan House on East 75th Street looks out to Central Park.

If a city summer is what you seek, look no further than the crowning jewel of the Stuart Duncan House on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Listed with Richard Steinberg of Compass at $23,500,000, the triplex penthouse has a private elevator, six separate outdoor spaces and a dramatic open living plan with large picture windows. The primary bedroom is a deluxe en suite, with a huge dressing area and private balcony. Add to that four thoughtfully appointed lower-level bedrooms and a home office. The tree-lined street, steps away from Central Park, is surrounded by an array of fine restaurants, a wine bar and galleries.
