Close your eyes and dream of a Hamptons estate, and this listing from associate brokers Ann Ciardullo and Keith Green of Sotheby’s International Realty may just come to mind. In East Hampton, The Grace Estate is a dramatic Tudor mansion that transports a visitor to another place and time. Manicured gardens and a three-tiered central fountain greet you upon arrival. Out back, find a pool house, pool, deck, hot tub and spa. You’ll feel like you’re in a fairy tale in castlelike rooms such as the center hall, with its 25-foot beamed cathedral ceiling. There are nine fireplaces throughout the 4-bedroom home, including in the primary bedroom, which fills the entire second floor. The property also features a 4-car garage and privacy galore on a charming street, North Bay Lane. Asking $4,995,000.
If a modern home is more your style, look no further than Sotheby’s International Realty’s associate broker Beate V. Moore’s first-time-to-market residence on Town Line Road in Sagaponack. Designed by architect Steven Harris, this stunner sits on 1.3 acres, with eight en suite bedrooms, 10 full baths and floor-to-ceiling glass walls that celebrate indoor/outdoor living with panoramic views of the Atlantic and more. A media room and gym, a heated gunite pool, a spa and a pool house almost complete the picture, but wait—there is yet another spa on the roof, with a kitchenette for easy outdoor living. Best of all, the home is eco-friendly with solar panels, geothermal heat, radiant floor heating throughout and a generator. Asking $18,000,000.
Two extraordinary residences on Gin Lane, listed with Sotheby’s International Realty’s associate Realtor Harald Grant, come with 400 feet of stunning bulkhead beachfront, manicured hedges and lawns, gunite pools and sunken tennis courts. The main four-story early-1900s, classic shingle-sided home features a second level that opens across decks and patios to take in ocean breezes. The second, separate home is similarly designed—from the dark polished-wood floors to the white interiors with detailed moldings, French doors and coffered ceilings. Both homes are outfitted with gyms and saunas, and the second residence has a home theater and billiards room. Price upon request.
Farms, fields and vistas are yours, south of the Highway and steps away from beautiful Mecox Bay. Sotheby’s International Realty’s Associate Broker Doreen Atkins’ rare home, asking $15,995,000, features a main house with 8 bedrooms, 9.5 baths, wide-plank wood flooring, a custom-milled grand staircase, leaded glass windows, coffered ceilings, all Carrara marble baths and Turkish limestone terraces. Entertainment and living spaces include a media room, game room, gym, sauna and two laundry rooms, while outside on the landscaped grounds sits a pool house and heated gunite pool, as well as a 1760 antique home with landmark status. Known as the oldest home in Water Mill, it’s waiting to become a writer’s retreat, a yoga room, or simply remain as a step back in time.
