Known as the “House of Windows,” this eco-friendly, contemporary waterfront home with panoramic views of Long Island Sound is for sale on 94 Founders Path in Baiting Hollow.
Built in 2013 on 1.2 acres, this five bedroom home has five and a half bathrooms and 4,534 square feet of living space. Renowned architect Stephen H. Chang designed the house so that it leaves the smallest ecological footprint. Solar panels were used for the electricity demand, including heat for the pool in the ground and a pool house with a full bathroom.
It was also designed to provide a sense of wellbeing and balance with an open floor plan that features river and private sanctuaries. Brazilian Ipe wood is used as siding as listed, as well as on decks on the first and second floors, and on handcrafted doors and alcoves. Radiant heat under bamboo floors provides gentle warmth in the cooler months.
The house has an eat-in kitchen, a combination of living and dining room, a family room, an entrance foyer, cathedral ceilings and walk-in closets.
Outside, the pesticide-free garden includes a combination of flowers, edible plants, and specimens of trees that stand over the white sand beach below. It is equipped with central air conditioning and a two-car garage.
The property is located between Wildwood State Park and the Bluffs Country Club. It is approximately three miles from downtown Riverhead and the Riverhead Long Island Rail Road station. It falls in the Riverhead School District.
The price is $ 1,725,000 excluding the annual property tax of $ 30,408.
The real estate agents listed for the property are Cheryl Schneider and Regan Battuello of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, available at 631-298-4130.
