#2   
   20 Hook Lane, East Hampton, NY 11937 is listed for sale at $17,500,000.


Down a private lane in the Hook Pond estate area in the heart of East Hampton village is a new home with 7 bedrooms, 12 baths and 6,500 sq.ft. that masterfully blends a Hamptons traditional with modern sensibilities. Designed and built by Abstract Builders, LLC, the home is perfectly sited on this 1.6 acre lot to take full advantage of the sweeping upper floor views of Hook Pond and the Atlantic Ocean. Open and light-filled interiors are enhanced by white oak floors and the expansive use of glass-including panoramic glass sliding doors imported from Greece-allowing for seamless transitions between indoors and out. The main entrance to the home is through a sleek industrial, steel-and-glass wall that opens to a double-height entry with an adjoining oak-paneled library/den. But the hub of any home today is the kitchen/living area. Here, an open kitchen with a dramatic island of a single slab of luminous Zimbabwe granite-flows into a dining area and generous gathering room with a glamorous smoked-mirrored wet bar, all open to the outside through glass door walls. On the other side of the shared fireplace is a more intimate, formal living room. A junior master suite with direct access to the outside completes the first floor. Ascend the gracious stairway, or take the elevator, to the second floor and to the master bedroom which includes two full baths (one with a soaking tub and vanity), a windowed closet room with custom high-gloss enamel cabinetry with inset lighting, a fireplace of Arabescato marble (which matches the marble in the bathrooms), plus it's very own secluded deck where you can sip your coffee and watch the swans glide on Hook Pond. Three more ensuite bedrooms, a lounge/TV nook, and one of two laundry areas complete the second level. Up one more flight is a third-floor observation deck with gas fireplace and wet bar, with an even more stunning vista. On the lower level, each end has floor to ceiling windows which make the space feel truly alive in the way that only natural light can. Two ensuite bedrooms flank either side of the lower level but the remainder of the living area is open, with a double-sided travertine fireplace separating a billiard area from an informal viewing area with a 133-inch projection TV. Moving through the space you'll pass a glass-enclosed wine cellar and gym, plus a full steam room and state-of-the-art Infrared sauna. Climb an outdoor teak stairway to the pool area, with a 50'x18' gunite pool and separate 10'x10' spa anchored by an elegant pool house with attached outdoor shower surround. Alabama limestone surrounds the pool edge and continues into the pool house so that with retractable glass doors on two sides it's truly integrated with its surroundings. Off the back of the main house are two covered porches with retractable screens and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen that make outdoor entertaining seamless. Time to sit back and enjoy the view and listen to the sound of the ocean.

Today's Mortgage Rates

Mortgage Rates Drop to Lowest Levels in 2 Weeks
May 23 2018, 3:36PM

This week hadn't been too traumatic for mortgage rates through yesterday afternoon, but neither had it been positive in any noticeable way.  That changed today as rates fell abruptly to the lowest levels since last Monday.  Granted, at the time, last Monday's rates were still pretty close to the worst in 7 years, but the point is that we've managed to find our way back from the even higher rates that followed.

Help came chiefly from European political developments where Italy is a day or two away from confirming a government that could end up pushing the country out of the Eurozone.  Even though that's far from guaranteed, the mere risk of such a thing is enough to drive investors toward safer haven bonds like those issued by Germany or the US.  In general, excess demand for bonds means rates move lower.
