Designed four years ago by Hamptons starchitects Bates Masi, Quail Hill has just been listed for the first time. The house's form is reminiscent of traditional East End buildings, but get a little closer and you see that common materials have been repurposed in various ways. The shingles are actually a woven screen of oak surveyor's stakes and the massive chimney isn't solid at all, but is actually made of thin concrete panels. Inside the four bedroom 3400sf house, the wall enclosing the staircase looks like translucent stone but is actually a double paned glass wall filled with shells. The fireplace surround is made of polished military dog tags. All these add up to a seemingly traditional modern building with interesting quirks. The house is set on 2.25 acres with the obligatory pool.
