The largest home being sold in the Hamptons, a 23,000-square-foot estate, hit the market Thursday for $34.95 million.
The newly built home in Southampton, located at 6 Olde Town, is bigger than the next largest, La Dune, which is being marketed for $145 million, by 1,000 square feet.
The pristine home, or Summerhouse, as it is called, was designed for the, “modernist buyer,” said Harold Grant, the listing agent for this property.
The outside is very traditional. As you drive up to a classic New England shingle-style home you notice the quintessential beach-home exterior. The inside, meanwhile, is fitted with state-of-the-art modern amenities like a chef’s kitchen with industrial appliances and five custom stone fireplaces. The contrast between the interior and exterior adds a refreshing touch to the nine-bedroom, nine-full and four-half-bathroom house, according to the listing.
“More builders are starting to build lighter, youthful-looking homes, the old traditional homes were kind of dark,” Mr. Grant said.
The new home still remain true to the Hamptons “look,” however, and have lighter reflective colors that visually emphasize and enhance the space, according to Mr. Grant. New interiors are full of light colors and high ceilings allowing for plenty of natural light to flood the house creating a light, roomy feel.
This home is in a ready-to-move-in state. All you need is, “clothes and a toothbrush,” Mr. Grant said.
Summerhouse has plenty of room to entertain and features an entertainment lounge with a full bar, gym, indoor basketball court, and a movie theater. There are staff quarters, a pool house, a custom Gunite swimming pool with spa, carefully landscaped and manicured gardens, and a rooftop putting green.

This property is set on four acres and is part of a seven-house estate created by Kean Development group based in Southampton Village as part of the luxury community of Olde Towne. Two out of the seven homes on the market have already sold, according to Mr. Grant.
The home is also in a prime location, a 15-minutes walk to the beach and just a short drive away from the quaint town center of Southampton Village.
While La Dune is no longer the largest home, it nevertheless remains the most expensive property on the market in the area.
