    The exterior is quintessentially Hamptons, and I mostly like it. I don’t care for the portico over the door since its roofline has nothing to do with the primary Gambrel roofs. The interior is also quintessentially Hamptons, and I also mostly like it. The dark wood floors and banister work well against the acres of white walls and ceilings. With the right decorator, it could be lovely. I generally don’t like finished basements, and I don’t like this one either. The spaces look awkwardly-scaled with ceilings that are too low compared to the size of the room.

    I have some serious issues with the layout. First, one of the first floor powder rooms is practically IN the dining room. If someone has to use the facilities during dinner, I hope the door is soundproofed and that there’s a strong exhaust fan. Secondly, the guest bedroom should not open into the living room; there’s just so much wrong with that. It also seems like the great room and the living room should swap places. I think the great room will be the casual family room and guests shouldn’t have to pass through it to get to the formal living room. Of course, doing that means the kitchen is in the wrong place. Speaking of the kitchen, the main sink and prep sink are backwards and should switch places. Upstairs, because of the way they are laid out, the master bedroom and the bedroom next door must have their beds back to back on opposite sides of the wall. Hopefully that wall is soundproofed so that noises from one bed don’t transfer through to the other bed. I certainly wouldn’t want guests listening to any late night activities, or be forced to listen to the guests not sleeping. I do like that the bedroom in the master suite is set back from the suite’s entrance so visitors can’t see into the room from the entryway.

      Grrrowler makes some good points, and the issue re the guest room is nominally correct, but I believe this is misidentified in in the plan. With only a half bath, which is located problematically near the dining room, as Grrrowler correctly points out, this can only be a library, as indicated by the built-in bookshelves. This is a pretty glaring error, but is a labeling error and not a design error.

        That’s an excellent point regarding the lack of a bathroom. To continue the theme, there’s also no closet in the room, so it must be a library.

    Ah…i noticed a huge flaw in the master bedroom layout…notice how the only place that the master bed can go is against a wall that has another bedroom on the other side? That could be a HUGE problem for couples unless if they pushed the bed away from the wall every time…ha ha…i hope you know what im talking about ;)

      Yeah, it does seem a big strange. I would definitely want my master bed situated far away from any secondary bedroom; gives you a better sense of privacy.

    I’m not too big a fan of this. The exterior is mostly okay, although I dislike the stair tower. It also needs more landscaping.

    The interior is clearly a blank slate, but there’s not very much personality here. It’d be nice to at least have some bolder colors for the bathrooms or kitchen. Overall it just doesn’t do anything for me. And of course there’s the Long Island pricing too.

    That layout has too many things wrong with it (guest room with no bath, no place for bed in the master, no good access to terraces) to be 14 million or so
