A sleek, modern home at 159 Atlantic Avenue in south-of-the-highway Amagansett came on the market in the beginning of December for $9.1 million under Bespoke Real Estate agents Zach and Cody Vichinsky. We featured the home when it relisted at the end of the calendar year, and now we’re featuring it again, as it’s found a buyer after just two months on the market.
According to Zillow’s price history, the home was listed on December 5, and went into contract on February 16. The property last sold in 2014 for $3,773,000. Since coming on the market two months ago, it didn’t have any changes in price from the $9.1 million.
The 2,300-square-foot main house at the front of the property has three bedrooms and five bathrooms, arranged with a beach cottage-esque upside-down floor plan. Upside-down floor plans are common at beach houses, or homes that want to maximize panoramic views of their surroundings. In this case, this Bates + Masi modern aims to look out to the nearby ocean at the end of Atlantic Avenue as well as the Amagansett Wildlife Refuge across the street.
The listing describes the home’s structure with the following:
An exposed steel structure, defines the main living spaces and forms a framework for the home. All materials used, from the cedar shingles to the bronze bars that hold them in place, to the steel that was made to weather, were considered for the ultimate durability, timelessness and aesthetic integrity. To optimize the design and capture the essential views, the main living area is positioned atop the bedrooms, along with a roof deck, which captures the view of the protected reserves and natural landscape.
We love the walls of glass on the second-level living space, the wide open floor plan, and the floating staircase that is almost literally floating—suspended with metal rods to keep each individual stair un-grounded.
Other features of the main house include exterior dining and lounging space that lead up to a rooftop deck, a pool at the front of the home, a built-in outdoor kitchen, white oak floors and ceilings inside, and blackout privacy shades.
A 763-square-foot guest cottage sits at the back of the property with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a living and dining space, kitchen with European white oak cabinetry, a fireplace, a deck, and an outdoor shower.
