The Amagansett Dunes is a seaside stretch of this Hamptons enclave that is full of beach cottages and casual vacation homes. And though this property at 9 Ocean Lane fits both those bills, it’s really quite unique. Designed by Bates Masi + Architects, the home is only 600 square feet due to local and FEMA regulations. However, the architects used these restraints to “explore the geometry of the building in section and how it can expand our perception of space,” according to their project page. The award-winning two-bedroom residence is now for sale $1,725,000 and it even comes fully furnished.

As the architects explain, the owners of the property purchased the land–a quarter of an acre just a few hundred feet from the ocean–more than 40 years ago. But once the various codes evolved, “With a footprint of 15′ x 20′ and a height of two stories, 600 square feet was the largest house that could be built.” Much of the shape and configuration of the home was to maximize light and create a sustainable structure.

The main living space has plenty of room for a dining nook, kitchen, and living room, all of which is anchored by a contemporary gas fireplace that also conceals the flat-screen television. In addition to floor-to-ceiling windows, there are skylight above; both benefit from rolling shades. The kitchen is outfitted with Corian cabinets and countertops.

The home has two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms that have radiant-heated floors. Other amenities of the house include four-zone central AC, a Sonos sound system, a full-size washer/dryer, and lower-level storage. As the listing explains, though, “this residence cannot sustain a pool or further expansion.”

In 2018, 9 Ocean Lane won the American Institute of Architects LI ArchiAward, the East End Design Award, and the East Hampton Star.
