Originally built in the 1970s with a modern flair characteristic of that era, this sleek Hamptons home has recently gone on the market with an asking price of $9.25 million. The home features a unique look and plenty of modern amenities, only a block or so from the beach.
The home was originally designed by New York City architect, Charles Gwathmey. It was one of the earlier residential projects of the architect, who would later lead such projects as the renovation of the Guggenheim Museum in New York. The current owners, Ben and Julie Solomon, purchased the home in 2014 for $4.25 million. They loved the 70s aesthetic, but did a great deal of renovating to bring the home up to the 21st century.
The home was built with a fairly open living plan, highlighted by the bold sweeps and lines in the design. The Solomons expanded upon this in their renovations, removing a wall that separated the kitchen from the living room. They also added 33 solar panels to help power the home, in addition to numerous other upgrades.
The home is around 4,400 square feet and has 5 bedrooms. Located in the exclusive Amagansett Dunes, the home is only a block away from the beach.
The home has a lot of built-in furniture, from shelves and desks to couches and a dinner table, all designed by Mr. Gwathmey. In making changes to the interior of the home, the Solomons made sure to stick to the light-oak scheme.
The home also features a 40-foot pool and a sauna. The bold yellow stripe across the front of the home’s facade is a homage to the first home Charles Gwathmey built in 1965.
