Over 2 1/2 years in planning and execution, renowned architect Donald Billinkoff combined the myriad Hampton elements of water, air, sand and grass when he created a 5,000 sf residence in 1998 that blends harmoniously into 2 acres of tranquility in East Hampton’s Georgica. With the house, interior and landscaping forming an cohesive whole, a sense of relaxation immediately envelops those who enter this 5 bedroom residence dominated inside by shades of soft blue, pale greens and beige, where even the furnishings were custom designed to be at one within this serene setting. Designed around a central axis almost 110 feet long, this unique shingled residence combines rooms of varying heights to separate private from common areas. The cathedral ceiling living room with fireplace and open dining area forms a dramatic centerpiece from which all else flows. The first floor master wing is a complex unto itself offering bedroom with sitting room and fireplace, office, exercise area, walk-in closet and spa-like bath. The 25′ X 15 ft double height kitchen is a culinary mecca expertly outfitted to accommodate cooking and entertaining. A separate 2 bedroom, 2 bath guest wing is found upstairs along with a study and private balcony while a bunkhouse type bedroom easily handles the weekend overflow. Both indoor and outdoor entrances access the finished basement with a 2000 bottle glass enclosed wine room, complete gym with TV’s and sound system, full bath and staff bedroom. With so much of the Hampton experience dependent on that which occurs outdoors, one will appreciate the screened and covered porches accessing the generous mahogany decks that overlook the 75′ long heated Gunite pool, unique pool cabana and Har-Tru tennis court all of which lie within the protective embrace of Margie Ruddicks exceptional landscape plan. All this in close proximity to village shops, restaurants, places of worship and ocean beaches.
