This remarkable “forever” residence is a symphony of perfection created in an enclave known for spectacular homes called Olde Towne. Situated on more than four acres of perfectly manicured acres is just the beginning of a voyage into a superb quality fairy-tale home that is beyond what even seekers of stunning features are looking for. The words “gracious, luxurious, perfection” literally become the hallmarks for this estate.
The mansion’s enticing elements are that it is three stories and is comprised of 15,500 square feet. Large enough for the extended family, invited guests, and grand entertaining. It has 10 bedrooms and 12 baths and also includes three half baths. All of the flooring of the estate features bleached white oak, stunning marble, nickel, and exotic stone custom applications, all detailed with curated care.
There are extra rooms that await discovery in addition to a completely outfitted guesthouse, sunken deco-turf tennis court, and custom Gunite pool with an oversized spa, as well as a sunken sitting area with a fire pit that juts out in a most interesting way into the pool itself.
The manicured meticulously landscaped space, bordered by a traditional privet hedge, frames the 60-foot custom pool. A veritable tapestry of garden beds and open lawn lead to the tennis area that is additionally complemented by a sun pavilion. The mature, specimen trees around the periphery maintain privacy as well as bountiful views of nature for this sanctuary of a home. The grounds include automated security gates that open to reveal a large motor court with garage space for three or more vehicles.
The pool house features a great room, lounge, kitchenette, 2 full baths, napping/changing room and a canopy offering shade for dining or relaxation. Terraced entertaining spaces are set within vivid garden beds and expansive, open lawn areas. An outdoor kitchen, gas fire pit and sunken deco-turf tennis court complete with a pergola covered viewing area add to the list of Twin Peak’s outdoor amenities.
Casting a spell of enchantment between the classic and modern necessities, the talented builder connected each to each and quite naturally, this becomes the sincerest form of flattery to those builders of old manor homes; perhaps the past does belong to the present, after all. Undeniable dignity is maintained, albeit in the proximity of what we today consider a world-class resort area in the Hamptons.
Within the house, one room flows freely into another. The interiors by Tony Ingrao have struck a fine balance within the common rooms creating intimate spaces throughout the 15,500 square feet of living space. Beginning with the more than gracious entry leading to the great room, den, and billiard room, each area is a jewel of perfect harmony.
The creative way in which every space ushers in the use of stone, wood, natural light, and thus reconnects with nature in a most environmentally connected way, deserves accolades. Automatic doors for example, that both shield against and retain heat throughout any season, enhance the expansive loggia. The masterful construction also weaves in eight fireplaces, finely proportioned to fit into each place, creating ambiance and warmth on cooler evenings.
The kitchen, set within its own great room is augmented by a separate professional chefs kitchen and a glass encased breakfast room. High-end appliances and a plethora of gourmet touches makes preparing anything in this area smooth and easy.
A most desired feature of any home and a must-have for most large estates, including this one, are the security systems. Twin Peaks boasts a custom Crestron Smart House system that automates lighting, security, entertainment, heating, and cooling features. Also programmable off-site, this methodology ensures safety and comfort from afar.
An attached cottage wing is considered the ultimate guest area and retreat. The second story dreamy cottage features a full kitchen, living room and dining room, with two en suite bedrooms. Punctuating the ambiance is a sense of privacy and serenity with soft color schemes and lighting.
Three staircases and an elevator variously connect to an additional 6,000 SF +/- lower level with theater, gym, professional 2-lane bowling alley, full bar, wine cellar, billiard room and 2 staff suites. The roof deck offers putting green as well as expansive ocean views.
Tim Davis, a masterful listing agent with Corcoran Group Real Estate, sums it up completely: “For today’s lifestyle and luxury living at the beach, very few properties can have all the boxes checked designating perfection Olde Towne –Twin Peaks has it all.”
