The sleek design takes principles developed by Mies van der Rohe, Richard Neutra and Frank Lloyd Wright and adds a contemporary twist.
Cartesian walls subtly separate public spaces from private, while sweeping cantilevered roofs provide ample shade. This intelligent floor plan ensures that the house offers spectacular vistas, is flooded with daylight, and seamlessly connects interior and exterior spaces – yet it is also highly private and secluded, with family spaces unobtrusively shielded from public view.
The Cascades offers 600m2 of stylish accommodation, including a spacious main living area comprising lounge, dining area and spectacular kitchen, leading onto a sleek outdoor leisure space including external lounge, 25m swimming pool, jacuzzi and tennis court. A double-height waterside library offers a striking yet contemplative area. The main house boasts four double bedrooms and an expansive master suite including a sitting room, master bedroom, walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom as well as private terraces. A pool house serves as a self-contained guest house or studio.
All this is set in a dramatic landscape that includes both groomed and more rugged areas, while the house is bordered on two sides by an expansive lake that only adds to the site’s exquisite tranquility. Approaching the Cascades from the road, the driveway curves through undulated, lightly forested landscape, with striking views of the house framed through the trees. Evergreen trees ensure privacy all year round, while extensive deciduous planting means the landscape changes with the seasons.
The design flair of the Cascades is matched by its immaculate craftsmanship and advanced energy-saving features, ensuring the house is as sustainable as it is stylish. This is an iconic property that will be treasured as a bold new addition to the Hamptons’ architectural landscape.
