On the apex of a hill, surrounded by horse pastures and farm fields, sits a modern home on 5.6 acres of land — straddling Water Mill and Bridgehampton, and the past and present.

Listed for just shy of $5.5 million with Brown Harris Stevens, 900 Old Sag Harbor Road features eight bedrooms and eight-and-a-half baths spread across three custom levels completed with “top finishes and every amenity you would desire,” according to the listing.

“Adroit builder Bencar Building Corp. continues to impress with the unparalleled quality of his work, tremendous attention to detail and riveting design,” according to a press release. “Completed with amazing taste and with the help of renowned interior designer Elsa Soyars Interiors in choosing architectural elements, this masterpiece boasts 9,050 square feet of living space with oversized windows that seamlessly marry the outside with the inside and allow for ample natural light to flow throughout.”

A dramatic, double-height foyer opens to a glass, double-faced fireplace, the living room, formal dining room, powder room, European-style kitchen and a breakfast area overlooking the backyard. A junior master suite, den with glass sliding doors, a mudroom, laundry and two-car garage round out the first level.

A modern glass staircase leads to four guest suites on the second floor and a master suite, including his and her closets, a private terrace and a double-faced indoor-outdoor fireplace.

The lower level is a juxtaposition to the secluded master suite, created as the ultimate entertaining space with a theater room, wine cellar, gym, powder room and seating area, as well as two bedrooms and a full bath. The party can spill out to the backyard, featuring a 20-foot-by-50-foot swimming pool, spa, two bluestone patios and a tennis court.

“Be the first to enjoy this enchanting new construction with a striking modern design, privacy and exclusivity, perfectly nestled amongst the surrounding environment,” the listing says. “Reach out and touch nature.”
