Beach house chic is redefined when stepping into the stunning seaside sanctuary at 20 Westway Drive, Southampton, NY 11968. In 2006 this shingle-style home received a modern makeover that retained the wistful soul of this colonial revival but added a bohemian twist. Still found around the estate are the remnants of the leisurely and recreational pursuits of society’s upper crust of the 1900s, and within the walls of this Atterbury Hills Shinnecock Bay Compound are the contemporary elements of a distinctively American style of architecture.
This beautiful blend of old-meets-new, traditional and current reinvent the Hamptons beach house. While the house is truly something to behold, the property is remarkable in itself. More than two acres of lush green lawn are set mere steps from a pristine beach, offering unhindered views of both Shinnecock Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Looking from the shore east to west, you can see 180-degrees of coastline, which offers stunning views but also ensures an exceptional level of privacy for the homeowner.
One of the most awe-inspiring houses in the surrounding area, it is perfectly suited for both full-time living or weekend getaways. Primed for entertaining en masse courtesy of a sprawling floor plan that spans 9,500 square feet, the estate includes eight bedrooms and eight-and-a-half baths. The elegance found within its walls are expected, the nod to traditional architecture and touches of minimalistic chic are the added bonuses that a homeowner will come to treasure. One of the most revered features of the home are the views of the water that simply delineate the interior spaces. Seemingly endless, the home takes advantage of the ambient light that spills through the windows to illuminate the spaces indoors. Indoor-outdoor living is not only on offer, but encouraged.
The main house on the property has four bedrooms that all are well laid out and ideally suited for working, relaxing and good living. The kitchen is welcoming and serves as the heart of the home with a space to dine after crafting delightful meals thanks to the ultramodern appliances and amenities. And while the dining in the kitchen may be the thing to do in the winter months, come spring, the expansive ground floor living area flows into a stunning oceanside deck where alfresco dining is a must.
From tennis courts to a stunning heated infinity-edge pool that seems to flow into the ocean itself, to a private dock in the bay, this seaside sanctuary is ideally suited for a water-lover who enjoys welcoming good company and taking in stunning views.
