A sweeping custom country manor complete with yoga studio and high-tech features, is a modern oasis for a busy East End family.
There is something majestic about a home that greets visitors with both impressive architectural detail and impactful interior amenities. Jason Black and Jimmy King of Artisan Signature Homes made an impression with their 2017 Homearama design affectionately named, Bridgehampton. This one-of-a-kind home, located in Prospect, is a vacation-like retreat that transports the homeowners away from the stresses of daily living.
The New England-style cedar shake, stone and siding distinguish this stunning home that features a signature cupola, an eyebrow dormer and a dramatic arched front door -—an antique salvage find —accented by a gas light. The porte-cochere provides visitors and the homeowners an elegant entryway. “Architecture from New England continues to influence our designs locally,” Jason says.
The attention to detail continues into the the expansive interior that includes five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The kitchen features incredible craftsmanship with custom cabinetry and an oversized island that is the perfect spot for gathering. Windows frame the banquette dining nook offering a prime view of the lush landscape. The open concept allows the kitchen to flow into the great room where a double-side linear fireplace and dual entries are shared with a screened porch. It is the ideal space for family memories to be made.
Beyond the private hallway, is where the tranquil master suite resides. Vaulted ceilings add a dramatic architectural detail, while French doors lead to a covered porch illuminated by triple windows. The master bathroom features double vanities that flank the double-entry shower. His-and-hers closets, one with a wardrobe island and built-in bench, are another example of the thoughtful design of the home.
Upstairs are four bedrooms, two with their own private bathrooms and another two with a Jack-and-Jill bath. Also on the second floor is one of the most distinctive amenities: the yoga studio that is accessible from the spiral staircase near the private entrance off the mudroom. It features its own half-bath, a linear fireplace and pocket doors that lead to the main studio space. Vaulted ceilings with exposed beams along with an opening that peers into the cupola adds an element of surprise to the room.
The lower level is focused on entertainment with a creative twist. A full-service bar area is enhanced by the glass enclosed wine and bourbon display case that pays homage to Kentucky roots. The custom, sunken media room provides the ideal space for the homeowners to sit and relax.
Bridgehampton exudes a unique quality that displays the latest in amenities and architectural details. As we head into the new year, we were curious as to what Jason’s thought were about what 2019 holds in terms of trends. “I see the trend going toward sleeker lines. Cambria marble will continue to be hot, along with customizable appliances.”
