Brand-new construction in an ideal corner of Amagansett makes this light-flooded mansion the place to see.
The six-bedroom home is complete with a built-in barbecue station, white gunite pool, and inset spa with infinity edging—perfect for summer living.
Steps from the ocean and just minutes from The Stephen Talkhouse, the Amagansett Lanes are ideally situated. But until 10 years ago, they primarily contained small ranch-style homes and cottages. That’s why the new mansion at 56 Hedges Lane is such a prize.
“New construction is extremely rare there,” saysWilliam “JR” Kuneth, the Halstead listing agent representing the property. Most buyers on the Lanes—four streets connecting Montauk Highway and Bluff Road— end up rebuilding. “As more houses get torn down, it increases demand and raises prices,” he says.
A southwest-facing private master suite deck overlooks the pool and a pool house that’s equipped with a full bath and wet bar, flat-screen TV, air-conditioning, and an attached outdoor shower.
This six-bedroom, six-and-a-halfbath home is designed for summer living. “You’re greeted by a 30-foothigh entry hall and drawn directly through the house, beyond the open main living space, to a wall of glass and a sun-drenched backyard with a white gunite saltwater pool,” says Kuneth.
The open main living space connects to the outdoors with a wall of glass, leading to the covered back deck, pool, and rear lawn.
Luxurious features include a sauna and massage room, but the floor plan ultimately defines the feel. “Our homes are designed for entertaining,” he explains. “An open plan offering room for everyone in one space and connecting you to the outdoors is what living here is all about.” Prices and competition in the Lanes have surpassed pre-recession levels. “This used to be way undervalued,” Kuneth says. “It was a secret treasure—now becoming an estate location.” 56 Hedges Lane is listed for $5.6 million and represented by William “JR” Kuneth at Halstead Real Estate, 2 Newtown Lane, East Hampton, 631-771-5319; halstead.com.
