Listowel, a 12,000-square-foot, five-bedroom residence on Mecox Bay in Water Mill, has virtually no neighbors in sight on picture-perfect Horsemill Lane. The $39 million property is situated on 6.9 acres and features a pool, a dock, and gardens by landscape architect Quincy Hammond, along with the massive shingle-style primary home, designed in 2008 by architect Kathrine McCoy. Bells and whistles include a two-story library, seven fireplaces, marble baths, a separate art studio, and an open-air living area. “It has a uniquely simple aesthetic, with high-quality materials and beautifully planned spaces,” says Corcoran Group Real Estate’s Tim Davis, who is co-listing the property with his colleague Peter Huffine. “It’s perfect for anybody seeking a secluded waterfront hideaway.”
