20 hook pond road
Down a private lane in the Hook Pond estate area in the heart of East Hampton village is a new home that masterfully blends a Hamptons traditional with modern sensibilities. Designed and built by Abstract Builders, LLC, the 10,000 sq ft ( on 3 levels) home is perfectly sited on this 1.6 acre lot to take full advantage of the sweeping upper floor views of Hook Pond and the Atlantic Ocean. Open and light-filled interiors are enhanced by white oak floors and the expansive use of glass-including panoramic glass sliding doors imported from Greece-allowing for seamless transitions between indoors and out. The main entrance to the home is through a sleek industrial, steel-and-glass wall that opens to a double-height entry with an adjoining oak-paneled library/den. But the hub of any home today is the kitchen/living area. Here, an open kitchen with a dramatic island of a single slab of luminous Zimbabwe granite-flows into a dining area and generous gathering room with a glamorous smoked-mirrored wet bar, all open to the outside through glass door walls. On the other side of the shared fireplace is a more intimate, formal living room. A junior master suite with direct access to the outside completes the first floor. Ascend the gracious stairway, or take the elevator, to the second floor and to the master bedroom which includes two full baths (one with a soaking tub and vanity), a windowed closet room with custom high-gloss enamel cabinetry with inset lighting, a fireplace of Arabescato marble (which matches the marble in the bathrooms), plus its very own secluded deck where you can sip your coffee and watch the swans glide on Hook Pond.
