Down a private lane in the Hook Pond estate area in the heart of East Hampton village is a new home that masterfully blends a Hamptons traditional with modern sensibilities. Designed and built by Abstract Builders, LLC, the 10,000 sq ft ( on 3 levels) home is perfectly sited on this 1.6-acre lot to take full advantage of the sweeping upper floor views of Hook Pond and the Atlantic Ocean. Open and light-filled interiors are enhanced by white oak floors and the expansive use of glass-including panoramic glass sliding doors imported from Greece-allowing for seamless transitions between indoors and out. The main entrance to the home is through a sleek industrial, steel-and-glass wall that opens to a double-height entry with an adjoining oak-paneled library/den. But the hub of any home today is the kitchen/living area. Here, an open kitchen with a dramatic island of a single slab of luminous Zimbabwe granite-flows into a dining area and generous gathering room with a glamorous smoked-mirrored wet bar, all open to the outside through glass door walls. On the other side of the shared fireplace is a more intimate, formal living room. A junior master suite with direct access to the outside completes the first floor.

The Nantucket-style traditional with pool, tennis, 5 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms and 2 half baths, boasts grand salon-style entertaining rooms which catered to the many important friends of the present owner, a world-famous ballerina who debuted with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo as a young girl.

Boat to the beach, paddle board, sail, kayak or just soak up the beautiful light reflected from all the water around you!
