A modern waterfront home in Water Mill boasts walls of glass that illuminate the space with natural light and offers stunning views of Mill Pond from nearly every room. The home at 172 Mill Pond Lane, recently listed with Frederick A Wallenmaier, John Frangeskos and Peter Huffine of Corcoran, is asking $4,650,000.
The nearly 3,000-square-foot home sits on a 0.47-acre property on a quiet cul-de-sac, built to take full advantage of the water vista. An open floor includes a grand living room with 11-foot ceilings and windows that span the entire back of the house. The living room with a fireplace leads to the dining room and both have updated finishes and amenities.

In the sleek chef’s kitchen, there are Sub-Zero appliances and custom cabinetry.
The home offers four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths. As for the primary suite, it takes up a level of its own with a five-fixture bathroom ensuite. It features water views, a terrace and 10-foot ceilings.
Meanwhile, “The serene outdoor living gives plenty of space to entertain, making this property a truly idyllic escape in a quiet corner of paradise,” the listing says.
Located in Sag Harbor Village, this modern home offers sophisticated details, a saltwater pool and bay views, all just steps from a private beach. The home at 3 Taft Place in Hillcrest Terrace was listed recently for $5.75 million.
With 5,700 square feet of living space on three levels, there is plenty of room for a family and entertaining.
The five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath home, built in 2018, begins with a custom oversized doorway that leads to an open floorplan dining area with a fireplace. Sliding glass doors that open to a covered deck, where there is an outdoor fireplace and heat lamps, meaning whoever buys the home can enjoy the outdoor space on the off-season too.
Steps lead down to a heated 20-by-50-foot saltwater gunite pool with a spa. A pool house, which is even air-conditioned, can be found nearby on the 0.5-acre property, which is surrounded by mature trees for privacy.

The home is a short drive to the village shops and restaurants in one direction and the Sag Harbor Golf Course and Barcelona Nature Preserve in the other.
Located in Water Mill’s estate section, an elegant Georgian carriage house stands out on the East End. The property at 191 Rose Hill Road, which includes a dock on Hayground Cove, is listed for $6.595 million with Eve Combemale and Ritchey Howe of Sotheby’s International Realty.
“This is truly a gem set around many $20-plus million-dollar homes and offers the buyer a dock for an easy boat trip or kayak down to the cut,” says Ritchey Howe. “The beautiful, updated home has a lot of character as it was originally built in the 1920 but it has been thoughtfully updated over the years. The gorgeous mature trees surrounding the property give 191 Rose Hill privacy, but also make it unique to the many of the new construction houses built on the road.”
The five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath home is also being sold fully furnished so a buyer can move right in, says Combemale.
A sunny open kitchen features vaulted ceilings, a wall of French doors and high-end appliances. Nearby there is a circular dining room, and a large living room with French doors leading out to a covered pati and a den with more French doors leading to pool. An ensuite bedroom can also be found on this floor.

The estate-like grounds offer a heated pool, patios and a private walkway to the dock.
This home can truly be enjoyed by summer 2022, especially since it is offered furnished.

One of the rarest oceanfront homes in East Hampton has officially hit the market. Lloyd and Barbara Macklowe, founders of the prestigious Macklowe Gallery, are selling the longtime Georgica property for $60 million.
“51 West End Road is a dream composition of the most sought-after qualities all combined: privacy, exclusivity, a grand yard with gardens and a pool, all overlooking the ocean with no dune obstruction whatsoever,” says Kyle Rosko of the Eklund | Gomes Team at Douglas Elliman Real Estate, who represents the listing with Marcy Braun. “What’s most spectacular is the light. The property enjoys both sunrises over the Atlantic and sunsets over Georgica Pond. It’s pure magic.”
The 1.51-acre property offers approximately 170 feet of ocean frontage on a private stretch of Georgica Beach. The home boasts an oceanside yard and pool, one of only two properties on West End Road with “these ultra-rare and desirable qualities,” the listing agents say.
It is among the priciest Hamptons real estate on the market. In East Hampton, second only to 201 Lily Pond Lane, which is asking $69 million, and is listed with Ed Petrie of Compass. In Southampton, several properties are listed far above the $60 million asking price here, including Mylestone at Meadow Lane, which at $175 million is asking the most of any Hamptons property.
While the couple has owned the property since 1992, Lloyd Macklowe’s brother, the billionaire real estate developer Harry Macklowe, purchased a house across the street at 64 West End Road in 2017, 27East reported at the time. Harry Macklowe’s divorce from ex-wife Linda has made news in recent years and even this week, when a court-ordered auction — the priciest night of art sales in Sotheby’s history on Monday. Art the couple amassed over their 57-year marriage was sold for a reported $676 million, according to The New York Post. In fact, Jackson Pollock’s “Number 17, 1951” ended up setting a record for the Springs artist at $61,161,000, The Post reported.
Lloyd and Barbara Macklowe also have an important collection art nouveau decorative arts.
The home was originally built in 1926 by Roger Bullard, who was also the architect behind the Maidstone Club in East Hampton Village. Historically, it has been called the Ellery S. James House.
The late Ben Krupinski, known as the builder to the stars in the Hamptons, oversaw the renovations of the home, which include wide-plank floors, a chef’s kitchen with a circular breakfast nook and a butler’s pantry, a potting room, formal dining and living rooms, a den, a first floor junior master suite.
Each room on the first and second levels enjoy incredible views, but the master wing is home to perhaps the most majestic sweeping vistas of both Georgica Pond and the Atlantic Ocean.
In addition to the now 6,100-square-foot house, there is also a “separate and architecturally distinct” 815-square-foot three-car garage.
There are numerous fireplaces throughout the home, including an original Bullard and a turn-of-the-century ceramic art nouveau one in the second level office.
A hidden staircase takes guests to their very own wing where there are multiple bedrooms and bathroom and an upper-level office suite. The lower level holds a full gym and an additional bedroom suite. And, don’t worry, there are still views here, as well as a door that opens directly out to the garden.
If buyers are looking for more space, the listing agents say there is the ability to build-up on the original portion of the home another 1,434 square feet. A second master bedroom with a walk-in closet could also be created without an addition.

Tucked away behind hedges and mature trees lies a rare opportunity in Southampton to own the largest property in the fabled Art Village. The 2.88-acre compound, spanning one full block at 8 Studio Lane and steeped in history, uniquely offers three separate gated entrances, with a main house and three historic 19th-century cottages.
The Art Village, an area of Shinnecock Hills, is a group of cottages first built in the 1890s as cottages and a studio for the Shinnecock Hills Summer School, led by William Merritt Chase, the noted portrait, figure and still-life painter. Opened in 1891, it was the first major art school in the United States.
The property at 8 Studio Lane, listed for $9.995 million, consisting of six separate structures, including the main house, three cottages, a ballroom and a two-car garage, was also restored by its current owners blending old-world attributes with contemporary living needs.
Hedgerow Exclusive Properties and Steve Gold from the Corcoran Group have the co-exclusive.
Artfully restored, the main house closely resembles the home that William Merritt Chase inhabited with its gambrel roof, gabled dormers, inset porches and bay windows, clad in cedar and cypress shingles, according to the listing from Hedgerow.
The three-story residence offers eight bedrooms and six bathrooms. From the moment you step into the sun-filled foyer, you know you are in a significant estate with historic character, but it also features modern upgrades. There are front and back staircases for starters, then two sunrooms and a chef’s kitchen — all with such coveted details as original glass windows, 19th-century fir floors and brick fireplaces. There is also a fully windowed and finished lower level.
A 900-foot brick terrace, perfect for summer dining and entertaining, sits under a grove of mature birch trees.
The home was meticulously built for longevity, says Hedgerow, pointing to the stone foundation.
The grounds encompass three historic gardens with original brick stairs, stone walls, a parterre garden, mature garden allées, beech, evergreens, established crepe myrtles and maple trees. The gardens are also full of hydrangeas, wisteria, lilacs and roses, preserved by complete perimeter fencing.
As for the three cottages, they are identified as the Laffalot Cottage, Tuck Cottage and Garden Cottage.
Laffalot is a two-story cottage built in 1891 by Katherine Budd, one of America’s first female architects. “Having undergone a major restoration from 2017 to 2020, this cottage will take your breath away with its original features of exposed beams, brick fireplace, fir floors, cypress shingles and sun-filled rooms,” the listing says. The cottage offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The Tuck Cottage, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage, is quite literally tucked behind privet hedges. With its own gated driveway, it is separated from the other buildings, giving it a very private feel. It was also recently restored and is said to be ideal for a tenant or a guest who requires privacy.
Lastly, the Garden Cottage, as its name suggests, sits near the gardens next to the main house. It is quaint in stature, but offers a kitchen, bed and bathroom. It could be used as an art studio or pool house.
Then there is the stand-alone ballroom — that’s right, the property has its very own ballroom. It was originally built in 1901 by the pioneering architect Grosvenor Atterbury, who spent summers on his family’s 80-acre estate in nearby Shinnecock Hills and designed many homes for wealthy families on Long Island.
The ballroom has retained many original features such as a brick fireplace, exceptionally large windows and ultra-high ceilings. The space could be reimagined for various uses, such as a spa with an indoor pool, a workshop, a dance or yoga studio, an art studio or even a game room.
“While undoubtedly a unique property in its artistic flair and commemorated heritage, this compound opportunity presents multiple scenarios for a purchaser,” the listing says.
The existing building envelope provides for both a pool and tennis court for someone looking to create a compound. There is also opportunity for a subdivision.
“It is rare to find an inviting, well-maintained residence and enchanting, expansive grounds of historical relevance whilst offering even broader opportunities for this Southampton estate.”
Located south-of-the-highway in Water Mill, “an exceptional barn” can be found at 958 Cobb Road. Now listed at $5.6 million, the home is represented exclusively by Beate V. Moore of Sotheby’s International Realty.
Moore says the house and the 1.1 “extraordinarily landscaped acres” it sits on offer great possibilities.
“The striking barn,” according to the listing, provides 5,200 square feet of living space with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. A triple-height great room not only features vaulted ceilings but exposed rustic beams — a feature that can be seen throughout the home — and a stone fireplace.
The eat-in kitchen has a farmhouse country vibe with a beadboard ceiling. A dining area is set in front of a large set of windows with a transom on a stone accent wall, which just might make you feel like you’re in the French countryside. There is also a butler’s pantry located off the side of the kitchen.
Elsewhere in the home, there is a den/library, two offices, a large artist studio that could be repurposed for practically anything and additional spaces that can also be converted for a buyer’s particular needs.
The finished lower level is where a gym, steam room and home theater can be found.
A three-season porch overlooks the lap pool in the backyard. A rolling lawn provides a perfect spot for entertaining during summer nights.
The property also holds a detached two-car garage with a potting room.
Imagine having one lot with breathtaking sunsets over Manhasset Bay. Now imagine having three.
“Build your dream home on one, two or all three of these rare waterfront properties in the Village of Plandome Manor, a premier Hamptons alternative,” says Patrick McCooey, who shares the listing with Gail Cunningham of the McCooey Olivieri Team at Compass. “Nearly five acres total of unmatched views over Manhasset Bay, complete with riparian rights and architectural renderings of proposed estates on request.”
The parcels at 63, 71 and 73 Lake Road are among the most desired waterfront properties on the North Shore. The three separate lots, totaling 4.75 acres, allow for panoramic waterfront views from every angle.
The McCooey Olivieri Team at Compass represents the listing, available for between $4 and $5 million.
The existing house on the lot at 73 Lake Road will be demolished to make way for a completely vacant, cleared lot and pave the way for someone’s dream home.
Two docks already exist, one of which will be removed.
Dreams can become a reality in Manhasset.
