Architect Michael Haverland is selling his modern East Hampton abode for $4,995,000. Designed in collaboration with his partner, New York Times columnist Philip Galanes, the “glass, steel, and stucco showpiece” at 73 Cove Hollow Road has been featured in over a dozen publications and even included in the Museum of Modern Art’s tour of iconic East Hampton homes, according to the listing. Due to careful architectural planning, the one-acre property manages to fit a three-bedroom residence, pool house, patio, and work shed with plenty of space left for a large, lush front yard.
With the exterior of the home rooted in modern design, the interior features a mix of new and old, with the owners utilizing antique doors and salvaged hardware throughout. Mid-century furniture joins century-old hardware, antique chandeliers, and 1930s country sinks, as the architect describes on his website.
The property’s various structures sit separately but are connected by defining stucco walls that extend from the inside out. “One of the most important aspects of true Modernism is simplicity and economy of construction,” Haverland said. “Architecture is best when not sculptural or too fussy and has pure form.”
The main residence measures an impressive 3,800 square feet and contains three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. Every room boasts floor-to-ceiling steel casement windows, reminiscent of factory lofts.
Interiors feature Turkish travertine floors, antique oak doors, and an overall “Survival Style,” as the listing describes, which refers to the restored antique hardware seen throughout the home.
The home features a bright and airy open floor plan, with the dining room separated from the living areas by free-standing panels. The massive kitchen overlooks the nature preserve located in the rear of the home.
Haverland told Dirt the decoupage birds seen across the cabinets were inspired by the birds seen on their property. “We selected these specific birds because of their great colors, high quality rendering, warm background color and variety,” Haverland told the real estate website. “We also played with the scale to provide more texture to the overall pattern—our favorites are large and respond to the scale of the room and they vary in size down to tiny birds marching in line across the utensil drawers at the scale of a spoon.”
Other structures on the property include a 600-square-foot studio and garage, a free-standing pool house with a patio, and art and work shed. The heated saltwater lap pool is 4-feet deep.
