With elements of scale and architecture that could not be reproduced in this location today, a beautifully landscaped acre on Crestview Lane along 125' of Fairfield Pond plays host to a magnificent 14,000 SF, 8-bedroom modern estate recently completed near the ocean in Sagaponack. Masterfully scripted by Brian O'Keefe, the architect employed fundamental principles of balance, proportion, function, and beauty to synthesize classical design principles with a contemporary aesthetic. Charles Allem, principal of C.A.D International, was engaged as Design Director and Interior Designer with overall project oversight. His vision for this property was to create an experience driven by his client's lifestyle. He established a color palette of taupe and beige punctuated by black. Charles embraced the use of natural honed materials as in bronze, stone, and leather. Complimented by hand woven linen textiles to achieve a casual sophisticated look and cohesive experience, he was able to achieve a restrained, sophisticated, and balanced residence that was both meticulously curated and eminently livable. Indeed, the drama gradually unfolds as you walk past the marble waterfall wall and through a marine -grade stainless-steel sliding door into a 9,000 SF contemporary sanctuary of wood and stone that reveals the expansive living room warmed by a fireplace. The modern Poliform designed kitchen anchors the center of the residence that flows to both the sumptuous fireplaced family room as well as the formal dining room augmented by a butler's pantry. A bedroom suite overlooking both pool and pond completes this first floor. Upstairs the serene and privately sited master wing, with both pond and ocean views, offers luxurious onyx clad bath and dual closets. A continuous walkway, acting in the words of O'Keefe, as a "brise-soleil", connects 4 additional bedrooms suites. Climbing from outside the second-floor office, a staircase finds the 4,600 SF roof deck, an amenity no longer permitted in this tony hamlet, offering bar, multiple seating areas and incredible 360Ã‚Â° views out to the Atlantic and neighboring farm fields. An elevator descends to the 5000+ SF lower level which includes screening room, recreational area, billiard room with bar, wine cellar, 2 staff suites and an entire wellness center with gym and spa that includes steam, sauna, hot tub. cold plunge and massage room. A spacious covered loggia provides for outdoor dining and the main level Foussena Grigia stone slab flooring extends out in all directions blurring the line between indoor and outdoor. And in fact, this covered patio with extensive built-in kitchen and comfortable seating overlooks the unique two-sided heated Gunite pool with a nearby sunken fire-pit framed by a stone courtyard. Elaborate landscaping by Edmund D. Hollander Design creates a verdant tableau while also forming a natural wall from neighboring properties. Amenities include a Crestron controlled environment with whole house audio, Reilly windows, Lutron controlled lighting and shades, extensive CCTV and a generator. Stunningly compelling and awaiting its next act, this incomparable and irreplaceable seaside estate is now available to preview.
