The lowdown: Art collectors and entertainers, this is your dream home. Nestled on a corner lot is a custom-built contemporary completed in 2008 by Studio MET and Home Builder Southampton Group, and with interior design by Marlys Tokerud. Custom maple plank flooring by Schenk & Co. greets you at the entry and continues into the study and formal living room, while bluestone tile starts in the two-story living room and finishes in the kitchen.
A Nanowall glass door system runs along the living room wall, looking out onto the 60-foot saltwater lap pool with hot tub, spa, and exterior shower. The kitchen is fully equipped with Basaltina slab countertops and Sub-Zero, Asko, and Wolf appliances, while a separate prep kitchen has its own sink, dishwasher, and two-drawer refrigerator.
The outdoor kitchen, with its Viking grill and rotisserie, is close to the in-home gym that could also be used as an additional bedroom.
Arise each morning in the master bedroom's spa-like setting, with a separate sitting room (ideal for a nursery), study, top-of-the-line master bathroom, and dual walk-in closets. Off the den and second-floor patio are two additional guest bedrooms, each with ensuite baths. An elevator makes moving between floors a cinch.
