Modern Mantauck Hamptons house tour

{Beach House Tour} A Hamptons Lake House

 

Robert Young didn’t want to fall victim to the cliche of a huge “Hamptons” beach house.  When designing a primary residence for a family in Montauk, NY he chose to design an understated elegant home which focuses on the exterior views.

“Designed to accommodate a growing family and close friends, this lake-front compound includes a 4,500-square-foot main house with 50-foot lap pool, an 1800-square-foot three-bedroom guest house, and a barn. An aggregate of smaller, informal living spaces carefully composed to disguise the bulk of the building and create a variety of views and experiences, each structure centers on a great room open to the northern water views and the southern sun and breezes. The structures combine modern design with the local gabled vernacular of cedar shingles and white-painted wood: large expanses of glass, painted pine board walls, exposed structural trusses, gray-painted pine floors, and driftwood clad storage elements that subdivide the interiors.” ~Robert Young Architects

The main home seems enormous to me and I’d be quite happy living in the guest house!

I also normally enjoy a more “comfy & cozy” home, however I can totally understand the modern and simplistic lines of the design since the exterior view is so gorgeous.  If I had the same home location I would constantly be staring outside.

What are your thoughts about today’s tour?

Life’s a Beach!
