This Strikingly Modern Home in the Hamptons Is the Ultimate Summer Getaway
Sipping chilled rosé on a rooftop terrace overlooking Shinnecock Bay might be the ultimate way to spend a Friday night this summer. And at this vacation rental in the Hamptons, it’s not just possible — it's practically required.
Tucked on a leafy lot in the tony village of Quogue, this Modernist marvel comfortably sleeps eight. It was designed by Stuart Disston of Austin Patterson Disston Architects in 2012 as a summer residence, which means its main living areas also double as breezy outdoor spaces.
In the living room, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open to the outdoor lap pool, where a wooden deck makes room for lounging, lunching, and sunbathing. And in the dining room, two pocketed glass walls can open transform the space into a covered porch.
Climb the stairs above the fireplaced living room to reach the second-floor garden, complete with a small lounge area. Above that, the rooftop terrace boasts panoramic views of the water and the town of Quogue — and once the sun sets, there’s plenty of space for stargazing.
The second floor also includes two bedrooms, a master suite with a walk-in closet, and a library stocked with beach reads.
The summery retreat is minutes from the shops and restaurants lining Quogue’s Main Street, as well as pristine beaches and hiking trails.
