We're generally big believers in the principle that architecture should reflect the surroundings and local environment. That's why Tuscan houses look right in Tuscany, not Water Mill. This Bridgehampton compound, however, threw caution to the wind and is "Inspired by the classic California-modern architecture of Cliff May." But we love it anyway. The main house is newly renovated and open plan, with a new kitchen and some great baths. There are three structures on the property: the main house with four ensuite bedrooms, a guest cottage, and an artist's studio/media room with fireplace that overlooks the pool, and all of it is modern, crisp, fresh and attractive. In all, there's about 4000sf of space on two acres, with a pretty tree-filled yard with a "hidden patio with firepit." Asking price is $2.895M.
