Flying Point House is a beach house designed by Steven Harris Architects and Rees Roberts + Partners in Flying Point, NY.

A spectacular glass box floating atop the oceanfront dunes in the Hamptons, this ultra-modern luxury residence is uniquely constructed with beautifully formed concrete boxes set on top of two piers. One pier of this architectural marvel is faceted, tapering to its smallest possible footprint. The other, partially embedded in the natural fall of a sand dune, is large enough to contain the garage.

Created as a stunning 4 bedroom, modern stone edifice with unobstructed vista views looking out across both the Atlantic Ocean and Mecox Bay, the structure is simplistic in itself and practically monastic. Walls of glass, some of which recede hydraulically into the floors bringing the outside in, afford views of both the sunrise to the south over the ocean as well as the sunset to the north over the bay.

The beautifully realized kitchen anchors an open floor plan that includes living room with fireplace, media room and dining area all looking out to a vast liquid backdrop. The master wing to the east features sleeping chamber with fireplace, sumptuous master bath and ample built in closets. Two bedrooms with bath ensuites plus a separate guest wing on the west, that closes off to the rest of the house, are wonderfully spaced to afford privacy.

State of the art systems include geothermal HVAC system, automatic shades, Lutron lighting and a Savant automation system which can be set up to monitor and control the house from anywhere. A garage below can accommodate two vehicles. Outside the 50′ infinity edge pool is serviced by a unique 600 sq. ft. pool house with fireplace, cabana kitchen and a grotto below offering aquarium-like views into the pool. This home truly redefines your time at the beach.
