When you think of escaping to the Hamptons in Eastern Long Island, New York, visions of luxury New England estates come to mind. Cedar shingled traditional homes are the norm while modern architecture residences are becoming more prevalent, and for a good reason.
The escape from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan is why the Hamptons have become a destination for many. Here’s an example of a contemporary architecture home that is on the market and proves that the Hamptons aren’t just for the traditional minded anymore.

Listed from Sotheby’s Realty for $4.75 million dollars, this one-of-a-kind home is just waiting for you! This custom 1978 built 4,000 square foot home has all the luxuries that Jaffe is known for in his designs.
‘Jaffe’s trademark granite as well as angled glass walls, slate floors, a reflecting pool of water, a heated pool with terrace, and impeccably manicured grounds’… Casa Sugar
The four bedroom four bathroom home has clean and minimalistic interiors that will excite every modern home enthusiast. The exterior stone cladding is reminiscent of a mountain home retreat and with the expansive glass, there is no mistaking Norman Jaffe’s attention to fine custom home building.
Cues from the surrounding landscaping and natural setting makes the home blend perfectly with the site.
