This remarkable Sagaponack property makes you feel at one with the water.
Situated down a private approach serving seven oceanfront homes, 719 Daniels Lane may be secluded— it even has its own private beach—but its convenient Sagaponack locale offers easy access to all the hamlets of the Hamptons.
If there’s one word to describe 719 Daniels Lane, an oceanfront Sagaponack home by A+M+L Architecture, it may be seamless. “The house has been built in a way so that every piece of wood, every seam, everything has to be perfect,” says Michael Cantwell, chief marketing officer at Bespoke Real Estate, who represents the property. “There’s no room for error.”
The floors are constructed from 15-foot lengths of wide-plank French white oak. The windows are floor-to-ceiling glass. And the lighting is flush LED that illuminates without bounce or reflection. This exceptional attention to detail may be one reason why the home imparts a feeling of ultimate relaxation. Take the master bathroom. “The master bath is built out of the house, so as you’re sitting in the bathtub, you’re staring out at the ocean,” says Cantwell. “The house is built in this unique way, so everything is angled toward the water.”
From the moment you walk through the front door, you’re hit with a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean—which reappears at nearly every turn, from the glass stairwell to the upstairs bedrooms. “Bedrooms on the east and west of the house have windows that wrap around,” explains Cantwell, “so they’re not just facing south; they go both east and west as well.”
The seamlessness continues outside, on the impeccably manicured lawn, replete with juniper, bayberry, and black pine, all of it maintained with irrigation systems. The custom-designed heated saltwater gunite pool has a waterfall feature and a built-in spa, and everything is controlled by touchscreen. Even the kitchen, with its floor-to-ceiling ocean-facing windows, white marble slab details, and zero-profile sink, reinforces the home’s boundless, edgeless aesthetic, giving you the feeling that you’re sitting on top of the water.
At the same time, there’s a sense of seclusion. From the private road that leads to the house to its private stretch of beach, the property is at once exposed and sheltered. “All the rooms have electronic motorized blackout shades,” says Cantwell. “So you’re either in the most beautiful open glass box you’ve ever seen, or you have complete privacy.” Listed for $19,995,000 by Bespoke Real Estate, 903 Montauk Hwy., Water Mill, 631-500-9030; bespokerealestate.com
