Waterfront views for Montauk house
Glazer's architectural renovation of this waterfront home in the Hamptons included a total reorganization of the downstairs layout to take full advantage of the stunning water views.
Built in the 1990s, the existing house had an interior layout that blocked views of the water and Gardiners Island. The living room and dining room of the house both faced the street. Utilitarian rooms were located between them and a dark kitchen that overlooked the water had a very modest window over the sink. The upstairs master bedroom had a small high window and the master bath had only a tiny window in a closed-off toilet. One small bedroom had the only deck overlooking the water, which seemed odd.
Pamela Glazer's suggestion that the layout be turned 180° was met with delight by the owners.
All the social areas throughout the house, including the living and dining rooms, all now face the water. Sliding glass doors open to an expansive deck that provides additional space for living and entertaining. A drop down screen on the deck makes it possible to turn it into a screened porch.
Luxury gym with spa
At the front of the house, where the living and dining rooms once stood, a large, bright and airy kitchen was constructed. Glazer removed a wall and lowered the level of the living room to allow an unobstructed view of the water upon entering.
One of the most prominent features of the master bedroom is its structural beams as well as the large deck that overlooks the water.
A large set of double pocket doors opens up the master bath to the view outside. The center of the room features a glass box for the shower, which allows the bath tub on the other side of the room to see the water view.
One of the owners is a competitive triathlete who needed a space to work out and recover. Glazer opened up the basement to the outside and created a luxurious gym, and spa suite so they could train properly. Among its amenities are a waterfall shower leading into the spa area, a relaxing room, a massage room, a sauna, and a steam room. The spa area is designed to provide the ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation experience, for clients' rigorous training schedules.
