The Hamptons are known for being a showplace of eye-catching architectural styles from cute cottages to sprawling stone mansions and contemporary creations. This sleek retreat at 5 Discovery Lane in the Settlers Landing section of East Hampton, asking $2.890 million, is definitely the latter. Its glam-packed modern angles conceal a wealth of breezy living spaces and cool comforts like a heated pool and several gas fireplaces.

Built in 2016, this unique beach house sits on a 190-foot-long cul-de-sac on Three Mile Harbor about five miles from East Hampton Village. The surrounding grounds add up to just under three-quarters of an acre.

A casual foyer welcomes visitors beneath a soaring entryway with an overhead gantry that connects the upstairs rooms and a floating balcony, part of the home’s master suite.

One of the home’s three fireplaces is a two-sided unit that serves both living and dining spaces. Outdoors on the patio, a lava-rock gas firepit warms chilly evenings.

The home’s 5,300 square feet of interior living space includes a 1,680-square-foot finished lower level.

Crisp white walls and richly-toned floors frame the home’s interior spaces with a sleek Scandi-modern vibe. Massive sliding glass doors open onto the outdoor entertaining space for a breezy beach-house informality and indoor/outdoor living.

The suitably sleek kitchen features restaurant-grade appliances and an island that seats four. Just outside the kitchen is an outdoor kitchen with a grilling station.

More on the outdoor living front: A 50-foot heated gunite pool is bordered by teak wood decking. The pool features underwater lighting and an inset spa.

There are four bedrooms and five-and-a-half baths total. Between them are too many modern fireplaces, massive glass windows and cool modern angles to count.

A gated gravel drive leads to a glass-doored two-car garage.

The home’s most unique feature may well be its master bathroom that, as the listing notes, “clings to the home’s starboard side, its French curve of a roof rising in delicious contrast to the main home’s cool linearity.” Inside this modern spa-pod is teak flooring, a sleek freestanding bathtub and a rain-head shower with a full glass surround illuminated by floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides.
