The Property

SOLD BY PLATINUM FOR ONE OF THE HIGHEST PRICES ON THE OCEAN IN 2015!  This architecturally significant residence is the epitome of luxurious, beach house living on Fire Island, New York. Boasting a parcel size of 2.5 lots – an exceptionally rare lot size for the island – the property offers approximately 100 feet of direct frontage on the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. In addition, there are protected parcels and beach areas surrounding the home, providing an expansive “buffer zone” and enhancing the property’s vistas.

The home was designed by lauded architect Horace Gifford, who inspired the book Fire Island Modernist: Horace Gifford and the Architecture of Seduction. According to the book’s author, Christopher Rawlins, “…Gifford’s ability to integrate his buildings with nature and to let his structures live lightly on the land may just be models for the kind of modesty that we crave today.” Gifford, who was once considered one of the top beach house designers in the country, had an impressive client list that included names such as Calvin Klein.

The property’s elegant design lines and handsome wood finishes complement the “relaxed beach town” lifestyle of Fire Island, while at the same time providing a luxurious and refined living space. There are 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, approximately 1,920 sq. ft. of interior living space, and 2,400 sq. ft. of total constructed area. The open floor plan is accented with handpicked, clear white oak, and boasts 10-foot ceilings. Massive bay windows form a “wall of glass” offering unobstructed ocean views.

Additional features include a chef’s kitchen, Bang & Olufsen sound system, custom fireplace, dining area for 12, satellite Internet system, ample storage space, and an oversized, wraparound deck with an outdoor shower/changing area. Landscaping is maintained with an in-ground watering system. Located in the exclusive Summer Club Condominium community. Sold furnished.
