Architect Russell Groves just listed his East Hampton home, located at 50 Montauk Avenue, for $1.85 million with Brown Harris Stevens agents Jessica von Hagn and Kimberly Kakerbeck. The home received a total renovation, designed by the architect himself, which included a new roof, siding, windows, and doors, as well as interior updates throughout.
Groves’ style as an architect is described as “layered modernism” combining “comfort and style infused with warmth and ease.” This is evident throughout his own home, which has a comfortable, neutral palette.
Standing 1,800 square feet, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms on a half-acre of land. High ceilings, a brand new kitchen with stone counters and stainless steel appliances, and a wood-burning fireplace can all be found inside the home.
The master suite sits in one wing of the home, while the guest bedrooms are located on the opposite end, allowing for privacy.
On the exterior, new landscaping includes indigenous moss and ferns. In the rear, there are outdoor dining and lounging spaces, as well as a gunite pool with spa and a nearby nature preserve.
Groves purchased the home in 2013 for $685,000. It was briefly on the market in 2015, originally for $1.05 million, but then jumped in price to $1.2 million. After a little over a month, the listing was removed. Two years and a renovation later, it’s back up for sale with an increase in price, currently asking $1.85 million.
