A vibrant Main Street bustling with shops and cafes, world-class equestrian events, and proximity to South Fork have made Bridgehampton a central hub for the Hamptons. For design-savvy buyers, longing for a fresh and even fun take on traditional Hamptons’ luxury properties in the historic hamlet, a high style modern beach house minutes from Main Street is serving up all the traditional elements of a luxury beach home in a forward-thinking design package. Situated on a 2-acre plot nestled between the Atlantic ocean and 309 feet of direct Mecox Bay waterfront, 40 Dune Road enjoys incredible views and a style that packs a punch of personality and pops of lively colors.
The 1,800 SqFt deck on the north side of the property features a striking infinity-edge Gunite pool with a Jacuzzi spa and ample room for everyone to enjoy the sweeping bay view while luxuriating in the dreamy East End summer sun. Host an afternoon lobster bake or a soiree under the stars, sipping wines from the local South Fork breweries and noshing on a spread inspired by the fresh, local ingredients snapped up from a trip to one of the vibrant farmers’ markets the region is known for.
Inside finds a light-filled open floor plan with a sleek modern design bursting with character. Bursting out of the typical Hampton’s beachy neutrals, this is a home for those who appreciate high impact design. Industrial chic architectural elements like the floating staircases with exposed iron supports and a potent pop of bumblebee yellow give life to the streamlined style with plenty of visual interest.
Crisp glossy white contrast powerfully with a bold, subtly textured candy apple red in the ultra-sleek, state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen. Equipped with integrated, top of the line appliances, the galley style kitchen is a dream to work in. Dramatic floor to ceiling glass walls that open up to the bayside deck makes for beautiful views and easy al fresco dining.
Moving upstairs the second floor offers an absolutely fabulous bay-facing master suite. Wrapped in two walls of floor to ceiling glass, interrupted only by the contemporary fireplace, the uninterrupted view evokes a sense of boundlessness. Outside, the railings of the wrap-around balcony disappear making for a secluded perch from which to lounge and enjoy the sites. The space is minimally styled with just a few splashes of vibrant pinks, blue and marigold to ensure a relaxing atmosphere in harmony with the surrounding natural beauty. The adjoining master bathroom is bright and bubbly with colorful aquamarine and cobalt blue tiles serving a big dose of style that reminds one that luxury design can be fun, playful and even irreverent.
Built a fabulous plot nestled between the endless blue waters of the Atlantic ocean and the serene Mecox Bay, 40 Dune Road is a modern interpretation of contemporary Hampton’s luxury. The home’s 4500 sqft of high style interior boasts five bedrooms, five custom baths, and is equipped with an exercise room, geothermal heating and A/C, and a smart home lighting system. To complete the offerings of a fantastic beach house, the property includes a private walkway to the beach with a dock for parking your boat or an afternoon of splashing and diving in the invigorating bay waters.
