We know that Quogue usually isn't in the Curbed Hamptons wheelhouse, but we couldn't pass up this Jay Sears-designed 12,000 sq. ft. contemporary. Once belonging to the recently deceased banker/real estate investor Martin S. Berger, the six-bedroom is considered one of the area's "first landmark architectural masterpieces...". It offers frontage on the Atlantic and, if you pick up the boathouse across Dune Road, on Quantuck Bay as well. The main house is set on almost two acres and offers:
"...soaring interior heights and free-flowing spaces that suggest or provide sparkling light and ocean breezes from every turn. Included within are five bedrooms, 8 baths, 2 half-baths, 4 fireplaces, elevator, library, two dens, billiards room/bar, and ocean-facing master suite."The grounds also boast a custom-laid granite cobblestone driveway, 4,000+ sq. ft. of multi-level decking and a guest house with a kitchen, living, bedroom and bath. In case you were worried, yes, there is a heated gunite pool. If you're feeling crazy (and have another $2.5M floating around), you can pick up the 2000 sq. ft. two-bedroom boathouse across the street. No slouch itself, the home offers "custom finishes and materials, from the 3-floor elevator to the Brazilian wood kitchen cabinets and motorized window treatments" as well as 134? of water frontage and a boatslip that can accomodate up to a 45' vessel. And, really, why wouldn't you buy the pair? In for a penny, in for a pound as the saying goes...
