This super cool East Hampton home could easily be mistaken for a traditional southern California mid-century modern masterpiece. Built in 1964 at the height of the movement, the four-bedroom home was designed for indoor-outdoor living with floor-to-ceiling glass windows in every room, a large saltwater pool, and even a tennis court. It’s currently for sale for $2,695,000.
This gorgeous East Hampton property is located on a 20-acre site that was surveyed and designed by architect Michael Haverland in the format of a “campus” rather than one large suburban home. It’s arranged around a series of courtyards and gardens to take full advantage of the subtle undulations of the site’s organic topography, providing room for an L-shaped main house, pool house and 25-meter pool, gym, spa, and tennis court.

The Red Dirt Road House is a stunningly simple A-frame home with no red in sight. Painted pitch black on the outside and featuring an all-white interior, this woodland retreat is minimal, modern, and has an Australian vibe to it. It was designed by Amee Allsop for a city-based Aussie client who mainly uses the property in the summer but also bought the property with dreams of hosting yoga retreats all year around.

It’s not all Real Housewives of NYC and mega-mansions out on the Hamptons. In fact, one of the cutest houses on the island (in our humble opinion) is on the market for just $595,000.
Located in East Hampton at 73 Waterhole Road, this beach bungalow stands out on the exterior for its charming hexagonal shape and on the interior for its funky hand-painted checkered floors and rustic cedar beamed ceilings. And if that wasn’t enough, the house sits on a large lot adjacent to a preserve and near a private residents-only beach and marina.

In a post-Sandy world, waterfront residents are faced with the choice of whether or not to raise their homes. Some may worry about the esthetics of this type of renovation, but Bates Masi + Architects‘ Northwest Harbor residence shows that raised homes can be strikingly beautiful.
The green-minded firm works with the environment and not against it. Instead of modifying this East Hampton terrain, they allowed the natural landscape to take the lead. The stunning result is supported by 16 sturdy stilts that raise this wooden dwelling right above an unsettling floodplain terrain while improving the overall environmental quality of the unique wooden home.

If this mother-daughter client was nervous about going in on a weekend retreat together, Leroy Street Studio‘s design probably eased any anxieties they had. Located in East Hampton, the Stone Houses sit on a flat, open 12-acre site full of lush greenery.
The clients requested that their homes have great expanses of glass to take in the views, as well as that the buildings were low-maintenance and incorporated Westchester granite. Sticking to this plan, the firm created two buildings that “together create an abstract composition of planar materials which redefine the property as a series of internal and external courtyards spaces for the family.”
