Don’t let the elegant curving staircase in the foyer fool you: this Water Mill property is built for fun. Indulge your inner 12 year old in the finished lower level with a two-lane bowling alley, slot car track, and home theater. Indulge your outer adult with a drink from the bar! Shoot some pool in the family room. Of course there’s fun to be had outside, too: cannonball into the gunite pool or play doubles on the tennis court. Or go to the tower roof deck and take in the views.
The house is a large 10,000 square feet with six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. Although we usually scoff at people who complain about the furniture and art being distracting, here we find the furniture and art being distracting—um, what is that creepy sculpture in the foyer?
The plot size is 1.91 acres. Asking price is $13.9M, which isn’t bad, although the 2003 house could use some updates. Just don’t touch that slot car track: we’re totally playing with it at your housewarming.
