Only 20 homes dot the stretch of land just west of the Sag Harbor causeway. One of these parcels, located a short walk from quaint Sag Harbor Village, and just across from the historic 40-acre Maycroft estate, was purchased by a joint venture formed by PCH, Inc. a custom builder located in Bridgehampton, NY. PCH forms joint ventures with clients that are interested in capital appreciation through the development of ultra-luxury homes in prime locations in the Hamptons.
Although the parcel was purchased with approved plans, PCH spent the next year planning and designing a gracious home that would preserve the site’s natural beauty and conform to the areas’ historical architectural traditions. The final design for the home had input from the builder, PCH and from the architecture firm, East-End Design and from NYC based designers Hein Cozzi. This collaboration between builder and design team resulted in the execution of a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that breaks with the recent trend among developers in the Hamptons. This is clearly not just another one of those cloned mansions known euphemistically as “McMansions”.
After just 14 months of construction time and a convoluted, often tortuous permitting process, PCH worked with both the federal DEC and the local town government. PCH is now completing this wonderful waterfront luxury home. The home has been placed further back on the property but its main floor sits eight feet above the surrounding flood plain. This thoughtful site-planning preserved the wetland areas while it enhanced the water views from almost every room. The main living areas open out to a sun porch and terraced blue-stone patio that overlook the spa and infinity edge pool that will seemingly merge with the 115’ of bay front.
Many of the PCH home’s architectural features are consistent with the areas’ architectural traditions; the tapered stucco chimneys adorned with their unusual nautical caps, the custom railings, the wooden front entry porch, the shaker window shutters, the hickory floors and the beautiful hand-crafted stone-work are just a few of the architectural design touches that are consistent with the areas traditional architecture. Of course, this is also a contemporary, ultra-luxury home, built to today’s design standards including the great room, den and kitchen family room, all with extensive, custom millwork, built-ins and warmed by their own fireplaces.
To lessen the impact on the natural environs and to further harmonize the home with the surrounding neighborhood, PCH actually reduced it’s footprint from the original design that had already been approved by the town. The PCH design produced a 6000 sq. ft., seven bedroom home that was highly efficient, within the North Haven Township’s FAR restrictions. This efficiency, in part, was made possible by the addition of a fully finished basement with 10’ ceilings which added two additional bedrooms and baths, an expansive media room, gym, sauna, wine cellar, and billiards room.
This PCH home sets the bar at a new level for all builders in the Hamptons. In this, PCH is offering a level of quality and detail that is only found in the finest custom homes in the Hamptons, but without the typical 3-4 years wait that is required to plan, design and execute its construction. PCH has created a truly unique and beautiful luxury waterfront home. Its design and implementation complements the property’s natural beauty while it respects local architectural traditions.
