A meticulously conceived designer’s home, this contemporary beach bungalow truly ticks all of the boxes. A perfect blend of simplicity+function, it’s a “forever home” that exudes a luxurious ease both inside+out. Open plan connects rooms seamlessly to an expansive ipe wood deck overlooking the fenced-in yard, with a garage/party barn and room for a small pool – a magnet for entertaining family+friends, all year long. Magnificent kitchen with La Cornue stove, Miele steam oven, Calacatta marble top center island w/2 refrigerator drawers+ice maker, Glassos countertops, and a hidden bar, opens to the great room with gas fireplace and dining area. Master BR suite boasts stunning details and balcony views of the sea. Two add’l, comfortably sized BRs, and a laundry room complete the second floor. All bathrooms on the second level have radiant heated floors. Third floor guest quarters/lounge leads to an unexpected rooftop aerie with views of LI Sound – the concealed Liftmaster staircase helps you get there! Rooms have incredible flexibility as private+public spaces coexist harmoniously. Clever, concealed storage throughout and home is wired with Nest and Sonos technology. Walk to the end of Cove; you’re in the water with your own kayak or paddleboard. This wonderful waterfront neighborhood awaits the “new kid on the block” with open arms – make it your address and claim the front porch (w/authentic gas lanterns) – ironically, one of the only things kept from the original home!
