Modern Gem in North Sea
29 Towd Point Rd., Southampton
Towd Point real estate for sale
You have to admire Hubie Frowein, a fashion photographer turned real estate developer and broker, for this beautiful, modern beach house he's created out of an old cottage, nestled between Noyac Rd. and North Sea Harbor.

Living Room
Towd Point real estate for sale
Wrapped in natural cedar, It's 3,500 sq. ft. on .7 acres, 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, bamboo flooors, modern european fixtures, mahogany courtyard and decking, gunite pool, outdoor fireplace, 2 car garage, and partial water views. It's open and bright, a really beautiful place to live. He has the listing at $2.295 million with Engel & Volkers.

What's striking about this listing is the more modest neighborhood around which this property lies. Mostly cottages and regular-guy homes, excluding a few big-buck babies on the surrounding water. And it's really close to Noyac rd. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out. If well, then I will be calling Hubie a visionary.

Upstate Farm
Towd Point real estate for sale
FYI, if you've got $2.25 to spend and are looking for something a little bigger than .7 acres, check out this 78 acre farm in Millbrook, about as far as the Hamptons is from NYC in upstate NY. Check out the listing if you want to feel bad about what you are getting for your money here on the east end.

Southampton Village Stunner
100 Duck Pond Ln., Southampton Village
southamptonm village real estate for sale
Looking for a traditional house in Southampton Village near the beach? Your looking at 6,500 sq. ft. on almost 2 acres, 6 bedrooms (2 masters), 5.5 baths, two living rooms, a media/disco room (disco ball and mirrored walls), beautiful lawn and gardens surrounding the house, gunite pool with sandstone terrace (won't burn your feet when it's hot), indooor and outdoor dining, service entrance. First-rate original high-end details.

View from Above
southampton village real estate for sale
I'm not sure if this is considered "estate section" or not; it's just up the street from Old Town Beach. The property is pie-shaped and located in the upper left hand corner of the google map above. If it's not considered estate section, then the $10 million price tag is out of the question. If it is though, and this is where you need to be, I'd take this over the Ox Pasture House I reviewed a couple of months ago, even without all of the modern doodads that house posessed. This house is the real Hamptons deal even if it is overpriced. Has to be seen to understand. Listing with Brooke Corton at Corcoran.

Another One in Shinnecock Hills
141 Middle Pond Rd., Shinnecock Hills
shinnecock hills real estate for sale
It seems like there are deals to be had in Shinnecock Hills these days. I think "the Hills" (tm SpecHampton, 2006) would be a great place to live. 5 minutes to Southampton or Hampton Bays; close to, in view of, or on the water; 20 minutes to Riverhead, and a good hour closer to the city than East Hampton on a normal traffic-filled day. Anyway, drive on up to this south-of-the-highway paradise, just a stone's throw from a semi-private beach on 1.5 private, gorgeously landscaped acres with tennis, free-form gunite pool, koi pond, outdoor sound system, lighting, and multiple outdoor seating areas surrounding the house.

The House
shinnecock hills real estate for sale
The house itself is a funky 1981 contemporary, built the same year that Diana Ross and Lionel Richie ruled the charts with Endless Love. Feel free to sing that in your head while touring the colorful 3,000 sq. ft. with circular staircase running off of a great greatroom. It's got 6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a landscaped wrap-around terrace, and while the basement and top floor need an overhaul, the main living area has some impressive finishes, especially in the kitchen and master bed and bath. There are also plans in place for a 2,000 sq. ft addition to the top of the house that would offer pretty close waterviews. More after the break...
