A modernist era gem, this iconic Amagansett retreat is a fully-restored original from the "Amenity" project conceived by noted architect Richard Bender in the early 1960's as a cluster of linear light-infused beach cottages occupying a 20 acre private enclave surrounded by woodlands, preserved land and communal tennis. Deftly curated by its owner, this sublime 2 bedroom/1.5 bath home is a study in the simplicity of the modernist aesthetic. Wrapped in extensive full-length glass, the space evokes the sensory pleasure of living under a canopy with the surrounding nature flowing through the space. The interior is keenly updated with aged pine flooring, rustic beamed wood ceilings, retrofitted luxe baths and oak cabinetry color blocked with Bender's original palette. A floating sculptural fireplace orb punctuates the open-plan living space and extensive rich mahogany decking, outdoor shower and gated entry enhance the composition of the original design. The private 1.23 acre grounds offer a serene Japanese-inspired garden escape with an exquisite freshwater pool, and are abutted by 160+ acres of dense natural woodland reserves. Featured in Alistair Gordon's "Weekend Utopia," Domino Magazine and other publications, this is a modern enthusiast's and a naturalist's nirvana.
