Brand-new construction at 26 Cedar Street in East Hampton, Cedar Farm is a forward-thinking home by Young Developments in collaboration with Oza Sabbeth Architects and constructed by Modern Green Home. Designed to deliver a luxury lifestyle with all the benefits of environmentally sensitive design, construction and operation, it is close to East Hampton Village and ocean beaches, but still offers privacy on nearly 2 acres. The home’s highly insulated walls, roof and windows, and its geothermal heating and cooling system, all reduce operating expenses. It is unique in its beauty and functionality with 6 bedrooms, 8 1/2 baths, a finished lower level, gym, a gorgeous patio and a pool and primary suite on the main level. Cedar Farm will generate more energy than it will consume, redefining modern luxury living for this generation and those to come. Asking $8,495,000 with Krae Van Sickle and Lylla D. Carter of Saunders.

Sotheby’s Ann Ciardullo and Keith Green have a stunner for sale at 12 Rolling Wood Lane, also in East Hampton, asking $7,595,000. Offering 2 full acres and 8,000 square feet of living space, the 7-bedroom, 10 1/2-bath beauty features an expansive great room and open kitchen as well as a screened-in porch with a dramatic stone-and-seasoned-wood mantel and fireplace. The primary suite holds a sitting room that doubles as an office, and the pool house also functions as a dining pavilion with a world-class outdoor kitchen. On the lower level, 3 en suite bedrooms, a gym and a media room make for happy guests, and car enthusiasts will appreciate the oversize three-bay garage with radiant heated epoxy floor. The home is at the end of a cul-de-sac, perfect for privacy but close to the village and its coastline.
