A modern beachfront compound located nearly 100 miles from New York City in Montauk, New York, is on the market for $21 million. Located on Long Island, the home is close to the summer playground of some of America’s wealthiest, including Robert DeNiro and Ralph Lauren.
“It’s a uniquely modern style, where the main house sits flat against the ground, while the guest house is raised about 19 or 20 feet above the ground,” which makes it look as if it’s floating, Corcoran Group broker Gary DePersia tells CNBC.
The estate rests on four acres of land with 300 feet of ocean frontage and private beach access. The main residence is 5,500-square-feet and was designed with steel and stone. The home also features floor-to-ceiling glass windows and is built to withstand hurricane-force winds.
“The intent of the architect was to bring the views of the ocean right into the living room,” says DePersia.
The main house features three levels of living space, kitchen, master bedroom with a rooftop deck and wraparound terraces. On the finished lower level you can find a skylighted gym. One level below the kitchen, which is reveal by sliding glass doors, is the futuristic movie theater that glows psychedelic orange.
“To me, the theater is ‘The Jetsons’ meets Steven Spielberg,” says DePersia. “Every chair is a bed. You’re never going to want to watch a movie anywhere else.”
Moving away from the main residence, and there is the 2,400-square-foot “floating” guesthouse. No, it’s not ‘really floating,’ but it is suspended on steel beams and features beach-ball colored walls. The guest house features two bedrooms, one bathrooms, kitchen, office and an outside deck. A yellow spiral staircase leaded to the upstairs living quarters.
“The architect designed this very cool, modern guest house to be a throwback to a 1950s motel,” says DePersia.
The estate is located on Old Montauk Highway, while it’s currently being owned by real estate investor Michael Hirtenstein, who purchased the property in 2013 for $13 million, according to public records.
