The Light House
& The Dark Side

Two Modern Shaker Style Farmhouses

Overlooking a protected agricultural reserve in Water Mill, NY, the two new custom homes reimagine modern farmhouse living. Both of the luxury Hamptons homes prioritize views of the lush countryside and are designed to respond to the sun's natural path. Yet while both homes share design concepts and a private roadway - they each maintain their own unique identity.

THE LIGHT HOUSE

Nestled at the end of the private countryside gravel road, the bright white farmhouse’s design makes references to shaker style architecture but simplifies the classic forms and material selections to create a sleek, linear facade.

THE DARK SIDE

Similar to The Light House, the modern home plays off of iconic schoolhouse architectural forms but utilizes a contrasting material palette of black shake siding and natural cedar to highlight an inviting wrap-around porch and covered deck area that flows into a sunken tennis court.

Located in a section of the Hamptons that’s still primarily dedicated to farms and ponds, this rare gem of a property is enveloped in verdant scenery. The edge of the private roadway is lined with mature evergreens while the property’s rear exposure overlooks vast, protected agricultural reserves. The first home - “The Dark Side” - is hinged to best capture these views while maintaining privacy from the singular neighbor and it’s sister home “The Light House”

At the rear of The Light House, the home’s gathering space and bedroom suites look out upon a pool area, sunken tennis court and the neighboring agricultural reserve. Nearly every space in the home flows from interior to exterior with covered deck areas large enough for outdoor dining or just enjoying a morning coffee in the country.

The home, it’s location, and the accompanying amenities add up to create the essence of a resort lifestyle. The wrap-around porch creates a connective exterior path and seems to pull the occupants toward the home’s outdoor amenities. Meanwhile, the interior bar-scheme creates a clear division of spaces designed for gathering and those created for a quiet retreat.
