An East Hampton contemporary home that just listed for $2.35 million is owned by an architect couple—Doug Thompson and Phillip Smith. Subjects of Alastair Gordon’s book Qualities of Duration: The Architecture of Phillip Smith & Douglas Thompson, the architects use the former 1920s tractor barn as their home and studio, which they re-imagined in 2016.
The custom-built, 3,600-square-foot residence has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, with features like charcoal stained cedar siding, mahogany trim, cedar sliding shutters, and a steel courtyard wall. Between three levels of living space, there is grey-stained oak throughout, radiant heated floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Heated Vermont slate flooring can be found in one of the ensuite bedrooms on the first level.
On the upper-level, the master suite’s bathroom features a glass-encased shower, separate soaking tub, and dual vanities.
Located at 61 Spring Close Highway outside of East Hampton village, residents will enjoy the exterior’s mahogany deck, heated gunite pool, and outdoor shower on a half-acre of land.
The property is represented by Douglas Elliman agents Tania Deighton and Terry Thompson.
