As you meander down your quarter mile long driveway and cross your own private bridge, you will get a glimpse, through a stand of native cedar trees, of *de Kooning House. This magnificent modern house looks as if it belongs on the East End of Long Island, but it is just as natural sited among the woodlands of Bucks County. This 7,000 sq. ft beauty captures all of the excitement and architectural significance of a true 1980’s Hampton’s gem. The exterior is a dark gray vertical cedar that has been freshly painted. All of the windows and doors have been replaced with black metal Marvin products…the result transcends the years and remains a aesthetic classic. The integrity of the home has been assured with the installation of a new rubber roof which is an obligatory feature of this architectural style. The interior is sprawling as it moves from “greenhouse” kitchen to dining, living room and library. The open concept is encapsulated with walls of glass in all directions to capture the natural canvas as sculpted by nature. There are 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths and are all suited for both family members and extended guests. de Kooning House is a rare find, on many levels. In a world of center hall colonials, the concept of excitement and the thrill of a “Wow” factor have become lost. As you wander around the home, the glass, wood and the curvilinear fireplace wall…all merge to create the brushstroke of an architectural painting.
Above the expanded garage is a reimagined one bedroom apartment with sliding glass doors to a large deck. This apartment is ideal for a caretakers, au pair or in-laws. Like all homes from a bygone era, the interior will need updating to meet the creative desires of future stewards. de Kooning House is not for everyone; it is a home for someone who is redefining their lifestyle and wants to exist within a living work of art and not one of the many “little boxes” currently on the market.
