This simple modern house, by Bates Masi Architects, features most of the architects' signature touches: long rectangular forms, horizontal slats, simple clean lines, and walls of glass.
Natural textures such as the wooden floors and cedar ceilings keep the feeling cool and refreshing rather than cold. Nice touches include a screened porch for dining on buggy summer evenings, a private terrace off the master bedroom, and a finished lower level. In all, there are six bedrooms and 5.5 baths set in 3500 square feet. Out back, there's a pool and pool house with wet bar and outdoor shower.
Getting down to the nitty gritty: of course, location is excellent and Apaquogue Road is a desirable address. The real negative is the small (0.3 acre) triangular lot that faces two roads. Given that, we think $5.5M is a stretch. What do you think of the place?
