This Water Mill Barn Asking $5.6M Is a Piece of Rural Paradise

When thinking of the Hamptons, one might dream of beach homes with endless sea views. However, in Water Mill, south of the highway, a home embraces the area’s rural roots. Listed for $5.6 million, this incredible barn’s cozy accents bring a rustic flair to the Hamptons market.

The blue, antique-looking front door grandly opens up into the awe of the triple-height great room, characterized by exposed wood and vaulted ceilings. Currently, eclectic decor abounds throughout the living and dining areas, from the delicate light fixtures to what feels like countless pieces of art. And, all of it can be absorbed while relaxing in front of the stone fireplace.

Although this central gathering point’s style is engrossing and warm, the rest of the 5,200-square-foot home pleads for exploration. Four bedrooms and four bathrooms are scattered throughout, perfect for accommodating a number of weekend guests.

Despite the home’s historic countryside aesthetic, countless amenities create almost a new build vibe. Included inside are a gym, steam room, private office spaces and among other luxuries, a home theater. When the heat of the Hamptons summer starts to roll in, take time for yourself in the lap pool, or host a party in the home’s outdoor entertaining space. It’s hard to imagine a barn being such a luxurious pad, but this is truly magic in the Hamptons.

Beate V. Moore of Sotheby’s International Realty has the 1.1-acre listing at 958 Cobb Road West.
