Single Family Detached - Water Mill, NY
Sited down a long drive behind specimen trees and year-round gardens is this custom designed home by Julian and Barbara Neski, who helped define a new direction in domestic architecture in the mid 20th century. While referencing Le Corbusier and Breuer, the Neski houses were very much products of their time, symbolizing the urban style that characterized the Manhattan/Hamptons axis of the 1960s and 70s. This home was built in 1970 and has retained its authentic original character as well as being beautifully maintained by the current owner for 40+ years. The main floor offers generous oversized windows and doors facing south and east, allowing for natural light throughout. The great room, with the kitchen, dining room and living room are all open and very much current in modern architecture today. The sleek and modern kitchen was recently updated with Bulthaup cabinets and counters along with Miele appliances. Glass doors open out to perennial gardens and a path leading to the pool. The north side has the ground floor bedroom and bath. There are three bedrooms and baths on the second floor. The black stone floors are a Neski signature and complete the refined elegance. A breezeway was added in the 90s attaching a second floor master suite as well as a library. The grounds offer a natural yet defined simplicity, and a tennis court completes this Hamptons utopia. The property is subdivided, offering two private cleared acres beyond the two acres on which the house, pool and tennis are situated. Opportunity to create a compound, build a guest house or sell off the additional 2 acres.
