Perched atop a hill down a long, winding drive, 'Whispering Winds' will transport you to the European countryside without ever having to leave home. After passing through the gated entrance and traveling down a private driveway accented by stone retaining walls, a majestic stucco-clad house appears as you reach the top of the hill. Situated on ~6 bucolic acres with sweeping views from every room, it feels as if you are living in your own private park. Through the arched doorway, a double height entry foyer greets guests and beckons them out to an expansive veranda. To the left, the palatial eat-in kitchen with massive center island features a comprehensive Viking appliance suite, stately checkerboard marble floor, and ample pantry storage. Beyond the kitchen, the solarium with fireplace and built-in pizza oven doubles as an breakfast room or informal dining room and plays host to casual gatherings. Off the kitchen and solarium is a formal dining room with fireplace showcasing sweeping views of the grounds. The main floor also features a gracious sitting room with easy access to the veranda, formal living room with fireplace, den/study that doubles as a first floor guest bedroom, and full bathroom. Ascend the stairs to the 2nd floor landing: A california-king sized primary suite occupies the southern wing complete with a dressing salon, fireplace, gargantuan en suite bath with jacuzzi tub and double vanities, dumbwaiter, private sundeck with outdoor shower, and two additional private balconies overlooking the grounds. Two more guest rooms, one with a private balcony and fireplace, also feature en suite baths and are built for maximum privacy. A secondary staircase hidden behind double doors brings guests to a third floor which offers two more guest bedrooms, one with private balcony, and a shared bathroom. The lower level features a rec room with ping pong table, lower level guest room, full bath, laundry (with a chute that starts on the 2nd floor), and an attached 2 car garage. Spread across 5.8 acres, Whispering Winds offers a parklike experience when exploring the grounds. From the expansive, furnished veranda guests will discover an intimate gazebo, gated saltwater pool surrounded by hedges, and a har-tru tennis court. Idyllic, and one-of-a-kind, this estate is minutes to Water Mill, Southampton, Bridgehampton, and Sag Harbor. The ultimate Hamptons hideaway for those who crave the extraordinary.
