David Ling Design on the Ocean
There is an incredible legacy of modern architecture in the Hamptons; Norman Jaffe, Gwathmey Siegel, Robert Stern, and others have contributed to the landscape of non-traditional homes on the East End. This Amagansett modern home with sweeping views of the ocean and dunes is a product of architect David Ling’s internationally acclaimed eye.
Clean lines and panoramic views make optimum beach living – there is nothing obstructing or interfering with the goal of elegant and simple enjoyment.
The house sits behind a protected dune, which allows a sweeping view beyond compare; there are upper and lower living areas to take advantage of the elevation and also allow for ground level access to the pool area and the beach path across the way. The upper entertaining area, which has decking and seating on both sides, flows into an upstairs master – making it feel like a penthouse overlooking the sea. Read More.
The upper master adjoins the living space, allowing for ocean views from your bed – but can be closed off with a pocketed glass panel door. To the rear, there is access to a floating outdoor shower with views of the dunes and pool below.
The upper master bedroom and bathroom – as well as other areas of the house – sport cedar paneling in a Jaffe-reminiscent style.
The lower living area has soaring ceilings and doubles as a recreational area, with direct access to the pool area.
A lap pool and fireside hot tub can be accessed from the lower level master suite, or directly from the lower level living area.
The lower master bedroom looks out onto the pool, and features a floating fireplace that has a mid-century “Jetsons” feel.
