A Norman Jaffe Stunner in Bridgehampton Can Be Your Summer Getaway for $90,000
The Hamptons is often thought of for its traditional shingle-style homes, but architecture pioneers have been carving out exemplary contemporaries and moderns there for decades. The legendary late architect Norman Jaffe was known for his contemporary residential creations across Long Island, including a special collection of them on Sam’s Creek in Bridgehampton. Now, one of his esteemed homes on the road is available to rent for $90,000 from August 21 to September 4.
Certainly not a price for the faint of heart, the high ask allows for the rare opportunity for a short stay in a Jaffe design. According to an article from Behind the Hedges, it was expanded to 3,380 square feet by James Merrell Architects with the interior design updates by NYC-based Tori Golub.
Taking it all in from a distance, the one-story home is characterized by a sleek, flat roof built cleverly into a hill. The structure almost seems to be shyly hiding as you arrive up the private drive. Once inside, open spaces and neutral hues are the name of the game. The airy great room is accented by a natural stone fireplace and walls of glass. The minimalist-style kitchen is tucked away, including stainless steel lower cabinets mirrored by white uppers.
There are four bedrooms and three bathrooms, but relaxation doesn’t only happen within the house. The outdoor space is expansive and calls for al fresco dining and lounging poolside, while the beach is only one block away.
Although the available rental period isn’t until shortly before Labor Day, the two-week span is a perfect window to wrap up summer in style. For those eager to experience an architectural marvel, look to Mala Sander of The Corcoran Group for the listing.
