We don't often cover properties west of the canal for two reasons: one, readers aren't that interested, and two, far too many houses in Westhampton tend to be…what's the word?...oh right, ugly as hell. (Sorry not sorry, residents.) This one, on the other hand, is pretty stylish. It's still being built but we like what we see so far. It's oceanfront, and between the bridges (the best address in WHB). Designed by architect Stuart Disston, the house is FEMA-compliant, so hopefully it won't be blown away in the next hurricane. There's 83 feet of ocean frontage in the narrow 0.65 acre lot, including an oceanfront gunite pool and terrace. The walls of glass make for beautiful panoramic views and there's even an elevator. All in all, there's 4286sf of space, with five bedrooms and 5.5 baths. We think the asking price is pretty fair, too.
