55 Dune Road, Estate of the Day
Summer and thoughts drift toward the Hamptons, white sands, green grass an an expanse of deep blue ocean. David J. Wine, vice chairman of Related Companies, responsible for the Hudson Riverfront's Superior Ink, one of Manhattan's most successful downtown developments, has developed 55 Dune Road, a luxury hideaway in Bridgehampton. The first property is the first independent venture for Oliver's Company, Wine's holding company. 55 Dune Road is a modern oceanfront dream home on a .7 acre oceanfront spot. The home boasts enviable 70-degree forever-protected ocean and Mecox-Bay views.
The property includes a 3,800-square-foot main house and an 800-square-foot pool house joined by an elevated, double-infinity-edge pool with views of the ocean, Mecox Bay and surrounding dunes.The private landscaped courtyard by Edmund Hollander Design, Inc. connects the main house and the pool house. The four-bedroom main house has interiors by designer Robert Stilin. The home has rift and quarter sawn white oak with an ultra matte finish throughout, a bay view dining deck, an oceanfront deck and two wood-burning fireplaces. The kitchen has state-of-the-art Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele appliances. The master suite entices with a master bath with a Hoesch Philippe Starck soaking tub peering straight out onto the ocean and Dornbracht fixtures. Wyeth, which specializes in museum-quality Mid-Century Modern antiques, raw industrial metal objects and rare vintage collectibles, will fully furnish the interiors of 55 Dune Road under the direction of Stilin.
The home's size is deliberate. "The average home in this price range currently on the market in the Hamptons is well over 7,000 square feet, and the average oceanfront home is over $20 million," said David J. Wine. "Who needs all that maintenance and hassle? Today, people are looking for smarter, flexible and inspiring spaces that afford the highest quality architecture, design and location. This is why we designed 55 Dune Road." Bill Williams and Dana Trotter of Sotheby's International Realty have the listing.
