Water Mill Gem

Cristina Matos of Brown Harris Stevens is the listing agent for this Water Mill gem crafted by the Bencar Building Corp.

Privately sitting on the apex of a hill, on 5.6 acres of land surrounded by horse pastures and farm fields between Water Mill and Bridgehampton, the house is minutes to ocean beaches. The house, featuring Elsa Soyars interiors, boasts 9050 square feet of living space, with oversized windows that seamlessly marry the outside with the inside and allow for ample natural light to flow throughout.

The three distinct custom design levels of living space have an open floor plan, top finishes, and every amenity you could desire. The main floor is comprised of a dramatic double height entry foyer, a glass double-faced fireplace looking into the living room, a formal dining room, powder room, European style gourmet kitchen with elegant top of the line appliances, as well as a breakfast area overlooking the backyard.

Walk up the modern glass staircase leading you to the second floor boasting a magnificent master suite with a luxurious bath, his and hers closets, a private terrace, and a double-faced indoor/outdoor fireplace. Also on the second floor are four guest suites with marble bathrooms.

The lower level was created as the ultimate entertaining space, featuring a theater room, wine cellar, gym, powder room, and seating area. It is complete with two additional bedrooms and a full bath. Ensuring you will make the most of the perfectly serene location of this fabulous home, the 20 x 50-foot swimming pool with 10 x 10 spa has two large bluestone patios surrounding it, a pergola over the seating area, beautiful landscaping, and of course, a tennis court. After all, we are not savages.

The asking price is a very doable $5,449,000. Contact for more info.

Another Goldberg’s

Rumors are flying that the Hamptons Market Place on 36 Race Lane in East Hampton is about the change hands — to an old friend, Goldberg’s. Visitors one recent morning noticed “Goldberg’s” coffee cups, though there was no sign of chicken liver salad, smoked fish, flagels, or schmears of anything.

It’s all coming, one insider swears, and the fresh bagels Goldberg’s is loved for will be baked onsite as well. Hopefully there will be a large signing bonus and a long-term deal to keep our main gal Annie at the front register.
