Modern Net Zero, an architecture and design firm that creates luxury net zero homes, has completed a contemporary estate that’s currently for sale in the Northwest Harbor neighborhood of East Hampton under Compass Real Estate agent, Bryan Midlam, for $2.95 million. With solar electric and heat, geothermal HVAC and hot water, LED lighting, and a smart energy design used throughout, living at this property will cost its future homeowner almost nothing in energy bills.
Other than propane used for the stove top, fireplaces, and backup, this home produces as much energy as it consumes which, according to Modern Net Zero, can save about $15,000 every year in energy bills.
To ensure that this would be the case, Modern Net Zero founders Marc and Anna Clejan both lived in one of the homes that they designed for a full year. On living in the home, Marc Clejan wrote:
We were very surprised at how warm, cozy and sunny the house was in winter. The geo-heat is way more comfortable than traditional heat. It’s less dry, there are no drafts, the surfaces all warm up, and the temperature is super stable.
Manager Marc Clejan, interior designer Anna Clejan, and designer Mark Thackrah founded Modern Net Zero in 2013 and plan to build about two to three luxury net zero homes per year. Though several have been completed—all in East Hampton—the 5 Quadrant Hill Road home is currently the only one available for sale.
In 4,200 square feet of living space, this home features six bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms on a plot just shy of a full acre. The turnkey home has a crushed stone driveway, an attached one-car garage, a double-height entry foyer with a floating steel staircase, and an open floor plan.
A junior master suite can be found on the first floor, while the primary master suite is sited on the second level, featuring walk-in closets and a spa-like bathroom. More bedrooms can be found on the lower level, as well as a wine cellar and media room.
Outside, there’s a covered porch and heated saltwater gunite pool with a hot tub.
The Northwest Harbor property is located in a cul-de-sac nearly adjacent to Cedar Point County Park, and about a mile and a half away from bay beaches at the end of Alewife Brook Road.
