Located along scenic Sagaponack Pond with dramatic vistas of the beach and ocean beyond, this contemporary Hamptons compound was created as a year-round family retreat. The site includes two parterre gardens, which thrive with seasonal vegetables, herbs, and flowers, as well as innovative green roofs at the Main House and the pool pavilion of the Pond House. The landscape, gardens, and green roofs are impeccably maintained year-round, utilizing the most sophisticated organic and toxin-free methods. Other highlights of the estate, which comprises three residences, include two swimming pools and spas, three outdoor kitchens, a sunken tennis court with adjoining pavilion, a pétanque court, a pier projecting into the pond for launching kayaks, and custom corten steel pergolas.
