856 Springs Fireplace Road
4 bed | 5 Bath
This spectacular 4,570 SF modern waterfront designed by architect Michael Haverland is located in historic Springs area. Down a long stone driveway and surrounded by protected land and Acabonac Harbor, this 2.5 acre property is the ultimate private enclave. Built by Ben Kupinski in 2008, the house consists of two simple rectilinear volumes. The glass walled-entrance showcases the unfolding views beyond. One steps up into the entrance hall and then down into a Turkish-travertine-floored 14-foot-high loft that embraces a study area, a sunken travertine-sided conversation pit, a living room, a dining room facing the harbor, and an open kitchen with an outsized island. The steel-and-glass rear façade has floor-to-ceiling double French doors that open to the terrace, where the Turkish-travertine floor continues right into the outdoor dining room. The airy master bedroom is located in the southeast corner of the house. The wide mahogany-plank-floored corridor leads to three generous guest rooms.
In an area of East Hampton that has remained rural in character, this house takes its elegant place.
