East Hampton, NY – $7,350,000
5 bedrooms, 6 baths
Step into the world of European elegance. Built in 1985 and inspired by Marie Antoinette’s 18th century Le Petie Trianon in Versailles, this graceful home, featured in Architectural Digest sits proudly on almost three acres with 325 feet of frontage on East Hampton’s Jones Cove. Welcoming you at the end of a long tree lined drive, the classically designed building features a graceful span of tall French doors with four ornamental windows above, topped by a dramatically sloped roof and flanked by two matching octagonal wings.
An impressive entrance hall with 23 foot vaulted ceilings leads into the main salon: a spectacular room filled with light from the surround of French doors, a fireplace with carved stone mantle, and striking French enameled walls. The formal dining room adjoins the kitchen, complete with a generous seating area warmed by an inviting fireplace. A pair of glass paned doors opens to the spacious limestone terrace that looks out over the fabulously landscaped grounds complete with elegantly designed heated pool. This is truly a home for great entertaining. Both the en suite master bedroom and the main master guest room open to the outside thru French doors.
The second level of the home includes a second guest suite complete with sitting room, bedroom and full bath. There is also a huge exercise room with an additional fireplace. The second floor east wing of the house contains two more bedrooms, a sitting room and bath. Live the dream. Go back in time to a courtly era…but one with all the modern luxuries of life today.
